We all happen to come across curious things from time to time, but we rarely get to find something we have no clue about. This is what the list below is about. It shares the mysterious objects some individuals found and had trouble identifying. They decided to ask users online for clues or descriptions, and they were not disappointed. Some of these things are awesome, to say the least.
1. The mark
Upon preparing wood for the winter to burn, someone noticed these curious marks that appear to be carved inside the wood. Since it was fresh, the person was baffled. It turned out they were made by a grub.
2. The table
It is more than obvious that this pool table is not an ordinary one. A person found it while at a party and wondered why it has these additional features. It turned out to be a bumper pool table, a popular option in the 80s.
3. The device
This tiny piece of tech was found by a person who had no clue about what it was or what it did. The kind people of Reddit quickly identified this as a piezoelectric buzzer, the kind of device that makes noise in talking or singing toys, for example.
4. The pot
Here is something that looks ordinary at first, but it is more than meets the eye. The person found it on the beach after it was washed ashore, and it happened to be a specific container, the kind used to house someone’s ashes.
5. The piece
This is one weird piece of jewelry, and we have yet to see one such item in person. The individual who found it had no idea what it was, and it turned out to be a video game-themed item, particularly a Final Fantasy XIII Serah Farron Necklace & Ring.
6. The sticks
This person saw this bunch of sticks that someone carved and tied together using a copper wire. We guess that they looked weird, but there is an explanation – these were used to arrange a flower growing field.
7. The seeds
Someone was curious to find out what these things were and why they had so much of them laying in their basement. Since the person didn’t grow anything, the best guess was that these seeds were brought in by mice and squirrels.
8. The item
Someone found an interesting object and shared its picture. It was hollow inside and made from brass, but we guess that they had no clue what it did. Someone on Reddit described it as a powder flask.
9. The needle
We haven’t seen something such as this one, and the person who found it also had no clue what this specific needle was. As it turned out, this wasn’t a needle at all, but a bead knotting tool. We haven’t seen such a thing.
10. The tube
This small brass item was a complete mystery to the person who found it. The person described the item while sharing its picture, and the people of Reddit quickly gave an answer to that mystery. It was an adjustable powder measure.
11. The machine
This clever-looking device seems to have a specific purpose, but the person who found it had no idea what it was or what it did. It turned out to be a widely used machine back in the day: a tilted bandsaw.
12. The small item
This small plastic item looked like a tool, but the person who found it had no idea what it was. After posting it on Reddit, it was revealed that the item was a tool used by electricians to install things.
13. The pieces
Someone found these two pieces that could fit into one another and shape a small disc. Still, the person had no idea what it was, and the kind people of Reddit pointed out it was a weed grinder device.
14. The rodent
Nobody would like to find a rodent in their bathroom, not to mention having it climbed up there. As you can see, the animal is even more scared than the homeowner. It turned out to be a flying squirrel.
15. The bumper
This is what was left of a car that caused a car crash that sent a cyclist to the hospital in critical condition. The driver fled the scene of the crash. The people on Reddit helped identify the car, and it was a ’09 Camry.
16. The item
Finding such a weird thing inside a box of chips is something that does not happen every day. The person was curious to know what it was, and it happened to be a testing chip.
17. The spaghetti
Someone came across these weird things in their cooked spaghetti and had no clue about what they were. It’s a good thing they didn’t eat them: the rosary peas happen to be a lot more harmful than a number of poisons.
18. The object
This person found this rectangular object and had trouble identifying it. The object happened to be a very specific thing, namely a key fob scanner, and it is always handled by professionals.
19. The pit
While strolling through an old farm, this person found a curious pit that they had no explanation for. The people on Reddit were kind enough to explain it was a ramp meant to unload trucks.
20. The creature
This is one amazing thing that is also very creepy. Someone found this creature and was amazed by it. It turned out to be a phobetron pithecium – or, as we all know it, a moth, but in its early life.
21. The leather piece
Here is something small and leather-made, but the person who found it had zero clue about what it was. We are not sure what it is, either. It turned out to be a bookmark, and we would have never guessed it.
22. The camera
Here is how a security camera captured this man knocking on someone’s door. He carried some devices that obviously did something. The people on Reddit guessed that it was an animal tracking device used for hunting.
23. The scanner
This person shared a picture that showed a policeman on a rooftop holding a scanner emitting a green light. This was during a protest. It turned out his job was to point out specific people to his colleagues on ground level.
24. The antenna
Someone noticed this Jeep had been fitted with an incredibly tall antenna that measured at around 15 feet. It was something you can’t see every day – a ham radio antenna.
25 The appliance
Someone was baffled about finding this unusual kitchen appliance and had no idea why it could be split open. The people on Reddit quickly provided an answer: it was a holder for stainless steel mesh scrubber.
26. The log
This is one very curious thing, and we haven’t seen anything like it. It seems there is a tube inserted into this log, and we have no idea what it does. After checking on Reddit, it turned out to be a flower vial.
