I'll start.

My girlfriend gave me these university of Louisville (Go cards!) car coasters. They go in your car cup holders. Within a few weeks, I had the first and only car accident in my life. It was horrible, easily the worst experience of my life. Insurance issues, for instance. Don't want to get into it.

With my car gone, I don't know what to do with them. I WILL NOT put them in my new car!

Stuck in the middle with you
I've been in two car accidents during snowstorms, and in both instances Aerosmith was playing on the radio. It's not really an item, but now when driving during snowfall I listen to podcasts!

Anyone who's currently suffering under the curse of unlucky paper money can send it to me, and I'll be glad to perform the steps necessary to remove you from its curse.

If you've been unlucky lately, it may be because you have cursed money, so I'd suggest you empty your wallet, and send me all your cash, because, unless you're an expert on cursed money, it's really difficult to determine which bill (or bills) might be cursed.

Cursed or even haunted paper money is fairly common. Don't try to destroy the cursed or haunted money yourself, and don't try giving it away or spending it -- that won't remove the curse or evil spirits! The only way to remove yourself from long term effects of the curse/evil-spirits is to send the tainted money to me, so I can perform the appropriate curse/evil-spirit removing ceremony as taught to me by the ghost of Alexander Hamilton.

I've also had a bad experience with Aerosmith. Agreed, totally unlucky!

Seems about right. I have no idea what was playing on my radio in my accident!

Here's a story. Six years ago while on a river cruise up and down the Nile I picked up a small chipped piece of limestone from the base of the Great Pyramid. I brought it home, displaying it on my side table. BAD IDEA. Within months my wife developed fatigue and dizziness…she had contracted lymphoma, a cancer of the blood. After brushes with death and two rounds of chemo she is back to healthy. But not before she said "I have had enough" and made me throw away that rock. Do not futz around with ancient Egyptian artifacts. There were street people selling the real deal, heads of statues, etc. recently plundered from graves. Do not buy them.

Sorry to hear about your wife, and glad she recovered. But it had nothing to do with a rock from Egypt.
My wife's mother died of the same thing a while back. She never went to Egypt.

Sorry to hear about your mother in law. You don't have to go to Egypt to get lymphoma. All I'm saying is that there is thing called King Tut's curse, and I believe it affects people who plunder ancient Egyptian graves. I believe in spiritual phenomena. (I used to be a hardcore atheist, but over the years experience has taught me otherwise.)

the part about your wife is obviously terrible, but the notion that any of that had anything to do with a rock from a pyramid in egypt is a load of malarkey
