    Let me see:

    1. Canon film camera
    2. Canon Hi-8 camcorder (UC-1)
    3. $500 cash hidden under my bed (OMG I'm so stupid)
    4. Manchester United team jacket I left in my SUV.
    5. CD car stereo system from my old Honda Accord.
    6. $60 when I was 7, was going to use to buy a Michael Jackson 'Thriller' black and red leather jacket. That one hurt. :mad:

    1. Members Only jacket from my locker when I was in high school back in the mid 1980s. (Still have a black one and it fits. :) )
    2. A couple of CDs (Enya, Jon Secada, not both at the same time).

    That's pretty much it. I keep a pretty close eye on all my stuff. Haven't had any Apple stuff stolen at all.

    EDIT: Just remembered... an old Nokia cellphone of mine fell out of my jacket pocket at an auto show, and the person who picked it up answered the phone, but wouldn't identify themselves or return it. So I called the cell company and had the phone terminated. Not really "stolen", but the person who found it wasn't very honest.

    Lots of CDs from my car. Portable player from my car. Pioneer head unit from my car. I was broken into three times in five years in one area I lived in. Of course, if I would take the stuff OUT OF THE CAR it would help...including the removable faceplate.

    I've been pretty lucky otherwise.

    I must be pretty lucky. :eek:

    Actually, I come from a household where we don't even lock our doors. But about 10 years ago, I guess the neighborhood got bad or we became less naive after getting stuff from the house stolen.

    I would say that nothing of any real value (sentimental or otherwise) has been stolen from me, but I'm afraid of jinxing myself.

    *hopes it's not too late* :rolleyes:

    Not really... I replaced the Enya CD, and have often considered trying to replace the Jon Secada CD. :p

    top answer!!


    My house was broken into during my 3rd year at Uni and it was pretty much MY room that was the main target..... bastards stole my PC, which had a load of work on it of course. And my backups. And my entire CD collection....

    To top it off, this occurred on the weekend of my 21st birthday :(

    Some b*****d broke into my student flat back in 2004 and stole my Xbox, games, cd's - but left the unopened Simpsons box set which was in the same room..

    I got a recall notice a few months later though about the faulty power units in the early Xbox's...so fingers crossed whoever stole it burned horribly thanks to Microsoft..and the disc drive kept on giving me errors..come to think of it maybe it was for the best as I got a new one from the insurance.

    Thank god they didn't go into my bedroom as thats where all my other possessions were.

    Some punk stole my micro machines cars from my locker at school as well...!

    Everything that wasn't too heavy to carry by 2 people.

    Durham, NC. It's a great place to live (if you're a thug).

    Would putting this picture on your front door deter theft ?

    Everything in my garage once... all our holiday decorations (wtf? can you trade crystal snowmen for crack now? did they think it *was* crack?) and my entire Simpsons collection, as well as a ton of my partner's stuff, and all of our financial paperwork (W2s are important, when you were an independent contractor, i keep finding out). That was a total bitch but insurance comped it all. Then like two weeks later our car was broken into, and they made off with a ton of CDs and crap like that.

    Otherwise, I've been lucky. No major thefts. Lots of pipes, one-hitters, and grass stolen, but that kind of comes with the territory-- not drugs, but the idiots i used to hang with :rolleyes:

    and let's see. OH! this one was recent, and it totally pissed me off. I picked up a Killers tshirt and some bracelets at Hot Topic (shut up), ate in the mall food court, and walked away with the bag under the table. Was gone for maybe, 30 or 40 seconds, but it was long gone. I had spent my last few bucks that day, i was so pissed! :mad:
