Talking What's the coolest thing you own?

Doesn't have to be valuable, just interesting.

My grandfather used to work as a carpenter for Princeton University and he noticed that for each podium they used for classes and speeches, they hung the crest for the university. Seeing that the crests they used were flimsy crap, he hand carved a crest, painted it, and presented it to the university. They made a mold of his original and replicated it in aluminum, and now the crest he made is hanging on every podium at the school. When he retired back in the 70's, they presented him with his original. He gave it to me a few years back, along with a copy of the university newspaper which talks about it.

A piece of my foot bone the doctor gave me as a "souvenir" after one of my many surgeries. (T-boned by a car on my motorcycle and crushed my foot).

An official ballot from the first-ever free elections in South Africa.

I love how we put pictures on our ballots, too!

Nice! I had a doctor who let me keep my stitches after they were removed. He put them in a small cup, like you'd take cough medicine with, and as I was walking to the car I dropped them in the parking lot.

I did keep my cast from my broken wrist, but it stank and I tossed it soon after.

I have an autographed and framed poster from Possum Bourne. Its the poster of him standing on his car after he just won the 2000 Australian Rally Championship. It lists 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 championships as well.

I've also got a 521 Ford motor waiting for an eventual project car.

Who won the election? Those pictures are too cool, if there was a hockey party in the U.S., I'd vote.

You're kidding right? Please tell me you are.

If you really don't know, I''ll tell you, but I assume you're joking.

Janq, you gotta pick something, I'd imagine a guy lie you must have procured a few interesting things in his time.

Nice paintball marker maybe?

Yeah, once I looked over the rest of the ballot, I felt like a tool. Something I've gotten used to, so no sweat.
