Strange or dangerous things...

So then ladies and gents what are the strangest or most dangerous objects you have found in people's gardens?Plants not inc as that would be to easy ;)Mine are...A ladies interactive personal toy, barbed wire, electric cable not buried, socket sets, screwdrivers, kitchen knives, a throwing knife, butcher hooks, blue asbestos always find that stuff, for me the knives where the worst not because it's a knife but because I nearly hit the with the 410 as they where both in massively overgrown grass at ground level and I was using a shredder blade for those that's not used a bigger strummer clearing saw they fling stuff hard really hard as I can speak from experience after hitting a rockery and the shredder blade smashing of a bit of stone straight into my nipple.... I couldn't feel it for 3 days after, felt like I'd been shot...

    There seems to be a craze around our way for lighting the gardens by a (barely) concealed cable. It's incredibly dangerous and as far as I remember, completely against the IEE regulations re- running underground cabling. Yet, still it goes on.
