    • Whenever I visit Stack Overflow, I have to skim through the list of "Hot Network Questions" next to the main content. Some of the questions asked are so very crazy - and often, the answers aren't that much better. Here's today's winner:

      Question: I want to leave an old bag at an airport (warning sign 1), but I won't tell you why (warning sign 2). My currently best idea is to "casually drop it onto a loaded baggage belt" and walk away (warning sign 3).

      Answers currently include leaving it open and empty next to some random trashcan, dumping it in a random bathroom and lying about ownership when taking it to lost property.

      What's wrong with people? :D

    • That's so odd! If I was flying into an airport and knew I didn't have the means to take my bag with me I would pack it in a cardboard box in the first place. On arrival I could then take the items I needed and discard the box.

      Back in the days when I toured by bicycle I would fly in some place, assemble my bicycle and attach my panniers to the bike. Sometimes I would use a light nylon duffle bag to get my things checked. If my bike was in a cardboard box I simply folded it and asked for a place to discard the box. If my bike was in a bicycle case I would find somewhere to store it. If I was doing a circle tour I usually booked a place to stay on the first and last night and asked that they hold it for me. If I was doing a point to point tour I shipped the case to my final destination, again finding a place that would accept shipment and hold the case for me.

      I agree with your warning sign designations.

      I wonder if the individual really wanted an answer or if he or she was a troll of sorts.
