theCHIVE conducts a little social experiment… and it worked! (28 photos)

A couple months ago, we thought it would be fun to get a bunch of disposable cameras, some balloons and a helium tank and launch cameras into Los Angeles with instructions to whoever found the cameras to take some random pics and send them into theCHIVE with their name and location. We launched two cameras so far and low and behold one of them was found...

    • Ryan

  • Ashen117

    That's actually really awesome. I'd like to find one sometime, but I don't think the balloons will reach Minnesota!

  • 0Bianka0

    Awesome! You really should launch some more of these:)

  • Paula_

    The Chive guys are sooo going to let me die in a fire and then run me over with that sissy new golf cart for this, but the site is:

    • ranD

    • Jade Pickens Stohel

      Why does this person exist?

      • Paula_

        My parents fucked.

        – the one they still wanted to abort when it was 12 years old

        • Eric Lopez

          Do you think if we thumb it down enough itll die….or maybe just ignoring it? haha

          • Paula_

            Won't help a thing…

            – you can't even kill it with fire

            • CHIVEASAURUS

              John, or patty or bob or whoever it is at the chive who likes to don a wig and play paula for an hour or so. the jokes getting tired…

    • Catalystika

      Paula_… may I call you Paula for short? I don't care what anyone else says. You're a trip and I look forward to all your musings and postings and trollings and all that stuff. You brighten up this place, and although they may not admit it… they all look forward to your posts as well. Maybe I'll just start calling you Tabitha Gnillort instead.

      PS… I've been a huge fan of that site for a couple years now. It's literary genius. I think my fav must be the one with the charts, but they're all good.

      • Paula_

        Love the charts one too, but probably laughed hardest at the Dear Neighbour, you are not invited to my party and Dear customer, I hope you fall and break your neck. Very inspirational stuff!

        – the one they'll hate even more this evening

    That's a pretty cool idea, but it also sounds like a good way to get an anonymous picture of someones junk.
