I was putting in a fence about 10 years ago and literally the very first post I went to concrete in became steel reinforced with the knife I used to cut open the bag of concrete. Happily not an expensive knife, but it was brand new.

I left a brand new pair of channel locks on the top supporting beams of an aircraft hangar one time. Military base. Don't think they'll grant me access to grab them :(

At least it doesn't still have fingers wrapped around it.

I used to hang sheetrock for a living. There's at least a couple dozen houses all over the state of California that have various tools hidden behind their walls.

I think you have massively overestimated the amount of people who pour concrete

Ah yes, the infamous "load bearing" tape measure.

There is a reason why I avoid wet cement like it would attack me. Too many stories about asphalt over your wallet ect

This tape went viral in my city last year and i loved it. No one knows if it was accidental or on purpose.

Not this but a flashlight. Redline made thee perfect flashlight for in my opinion, for after hours road calls. I bought it for 50 from nappa and somehow immediately lost it in a week.On the plus side 3 months later a semi I worked on rolled into the shop. My flashlights magnet held it to the frame for 40k miles.Amazing right? Lost the fucker again a week later.

Now I'm wondering how many sets of keys, wallets, tools and other items are within the concrete of our modern world.The accidental additions to a building's structure.

There was an air raid shelter behind my house that supposedly had a guy entombed in its walls. Fell into the form and never resurfaced.
