  1. I love the idea someone broke
    I love the idea someone broke in to steal 6 wooden pallets. In Pilsen, there are signs offering to pay $2 each for used pallets, so the guy came away with $12 of stolen items that are bulky and hard to transport. That’s a winner!

    My suggestions for the lucrative items he can steal next:
    – 15 cardboard boxes, pre-assembled;
    – 2 large bags of used packing peanuts;
    – A bin full of plastic ready for recycling, of mixed types
