Life is full of surprises. Of course, we can’t pick and choose; one day they come in the form of an arrowhead in a dried up stream, the next it’s a death mask under the bedroom floor. We just have to keep our eyes open. That’s the only thing in our power, really.

Luckily, the subreddit r/MildlyInteresting has plenty of perfect examples that good things happen when we do. Many of its 19 million members have shared photos of unexpected finds they came across pretty much everywhere you can imagine.

#22 Friend Bought A N64 Game, Found This Inside

For those of you wondering, he was taking this game apart to use the back on his JP copy of Mario Kart so he could take it to a friend’s house with unmodded N64’s. As to why he didn’t hear the pills loose shaking around, they were stuck to the sides with double-sided tape. You can see that in the image. The tape itself also looks old. He bought the game a year or so ago, but the game itself was made in the late 90s so who knows how long this has been sitting in there.
