Not hobby related at all, but amusing and I wanted to share.

They're installing a security system around the outdoor facility where I work. While digging to put in the cabling, they unearthed a bone:

Is it human? Deer? Space Alien? Hard to say...I'm contacting the police in case it's the former: if it were my missing kid, I'd like to know!


  1. Other angles would be nice.

    It's difficult to say, but it doesn't look overly human from that angle, but it it is I suspect it's the lower part of a humerus (upper arm bone).

  2. That's a knee joint there. If it's a deer, that's a damned big deer....and they're pretty runty here in town.

    The police collected it up, and I was told to not share the photo with anyone, so I'm taking it down. We're told we'll hear something in 3 weeks.

  3. Interesting...

    it looked more like an olecranon fossa (the back of the elbow joint), than the lower part of a femur... anyways... interesting...

  4. The police got back to us already, not human.
