Why anyone would want to keep two very toxic substances anywhere near where they are living is quite perplexing. Asbestos is a substance that was added to many products over the years but has now been declared dangerous and detrimental to your health.
Mercury is highly corrosive and can lead to neurological and behavioral problems if ingested or exposed to the skin. The new homeowners would have wanted to have the mercury and asbestos properly disposed of as soon as possible!
See You Later, Alligator
Finding a mummified alligator certainly gives new meaning to the playful phrase “see you later, alligator”, doesn’t it? The home must have been in Florida where alligators often find their way into residential neighborhoods.
Florida residents often have to keep watch for small children and pets (and also anyone really) who could possibly come face-to-face with the everglades predator. It must have been pretty frightening to find this mummified creature in their crawlspace, but this alligator is the safest one there is.
A Celebrity Sighting
So the previous homeowners had some sort of relationship with Bon Jovi and there’s a photo to prove it? That’s a pretty neat discovery unless they’re really good at photoshop.
However they knew Bon Jovi, it’s surprising they would have left the photo behind. But perhaps they are such good friends with the rockstar they knew they’ll get a photo again in the near future. It might actually be fun for the new homeowners to keep the photo around the house as it could make for a fun conversation at their next dinner party.
A Very Fun Find
The previous homeowners probably couldn’t take their zipline to where they were moving next, so it’s nice they left it behind for the new owners to enjoy. Not only do the new people get to enjoy nature, but they also get to enjoy the excitement of ziplining in their own backyard!
Of course, ziplining isn’t an activity that you want to do without any prior preparation or education so hopefully, they educated themselves on the safety of ziplining before attempting it.
Do You Speak Chinese?
Either the previous owners or someone who lived in the home at one time must have had some Chinese background to have had newspapers in the language.
The fact that they were “hidden” though is a bit more suspect (also the fact that they were hidden in an advent is interesting) and makes you wonder why. It would be interesting to know what date the newspapers were from and for the new homeowners to find a Chinese speaker and find out what they say.
