an observation...

driving home yesterday, I couldn't help but notice the number of abandoned single gumboots lying on the side of the road - 17 in a 100km stretch of highway, oh, and 9 hardhats (not all useable)...

Maybe this would be interesting if a gumboat is a used condom and 420SE.....well, if there was a story about how 420SE came to know where all these used condoms were along the road....

A construction/utility truck lost its equipment? Alien abduction? Someone plowed through a construction crew?

A true mystery.
