You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
Knives, swords, axes, and anything else with an edge. Books, Statues, Dolls,
Foreign money. By default Broken Lawnmowers, woreout microwaves and other eloctronic devices...
I collect nothing and everything. Whatever suits my fancy at the time. I have knives and books mostly. At one time my library was over 11,000 books. I ran out of space and trimmed back to about 6,000.
But since K-Man (Kevin) and AUTOMAG collect Coca-Cola items, I thought I would show them my Coca-Cola items collection.
This limited edition collector's tray was produced for your local Coca-Cola Bottler in commemoration of the last meeting of these two Alabama coaches, both of whom are nationally famous. This rivalry between these two state schools and coaches is unparalleled in football history. The tray commemorates the Auburn-Alabama game, November 29, 1975, Legion Field, Birmingham, Alabama, between teams coached by James Ralph "Shug" Jordan and Paul William "Bear" Bryant.

I have my comic book collection that I'm slowly selling off. My copy of Amazing Spider-Man #50 sold pretty well earlier this year and my oldest comic is Amazing Spider-Man #8.
Now-a-days, I'm trying to purge. I'm still holding on to my pocket knives though --- about 50 of them.
I collect WW2 militaria...mainly US but I have a fair share of other countries. Everything from uniforms, vehicles (only 1 so far), field gear, arms, ammo, personal gear, field manuals, patches...anything WW2 related interests me.
I collect food...in my stomach...all day long.
-The Mist (2007)"My God David, We're a Civilized society."
"Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."
Flashlights and US Navy command ball caps. I have one (at least one) from every ship and shore station I was attached to, even if it was a temp. duty station. And I have a ton more of them that I was never attached to.
The ones I have that I was actually stationed aboard are:
USS Wisconsin BB-64
US Naval Station GITMO
USS R. K. Turner CG-20
USS Gallery FFG-26
SIMA Charleston SC
Like I said, I have tons of others. And I have a few from navies of other countries. I have a command cap from a Russian Frigate and one from and Argentine cruiser and a couple from British war ships.
Avid coin collector (40+ years), also collect guns, nothing special just what happens interesting or a good buy at the time. I am would love to find a Mauser Broomhandle mainly for the historical value and the fact it is such an interesting weapon.
DVD's 354 and counting...
spy-ware and viruses
I seem to collect remote controls!They are all over the house and I have no idea what some of them operate.I also collect wives.I have had many happy marriages.I am lucky I finally found a sane person.Say,I wonder if i could program one of these remotes to flush a toilet?A business idea?
I collect teapots and loose leaf teas.
Not your frilly tea pots either. I collect cool tea pots.
I used to collect wind chimes but when I got married my wind chimes got put in a box somewhere and lost (seemingly forever).
But I know where my tea pots are so I continue to collect them and use them.
