I've never seen anything on the side of the road I had to pull over and grab it. My Dad, on the other hand, I remember being 11 or 12 me and my Dad on the way home from a family friend's house spotted a deer that had been hit by a car. This was on the highway and late at night so my Dad didn't see it until last minute. So, my Dad drives all way to our exit home to loop around and drive back and get the deer. He drives all the way to the exit for our friend's house to loop around again to finally pick up the deer we saw. Now, on the highway to get our friend's house it's about a 20-25 minute drive, one way. The drive (pun intended) this man I call my father had to pick up this dead deer off the side of the highway is something I'm glad to say I have not inherited.

I found a copy of Pokemon Soul Silver which worked perfectly fine, certainly kept and used.

-Two acoustic guitars! Sold those for probably $400 bucks, and I was like 14 too.

-Some pipe tobacco, when I did smoke.

-a small bag of weed. Especially after two different friends walked right past it, that was a good find as well.

-A full liter of orange Fanta (unopened!). I drank that shit in 1 day, I was really happy with this one :D

It depends on what it is. I picked up a designer chair that fell off the back of a truck once--just a sitting chair, nothing really fancy about it, but it still had the new price tag on it and I kinda choked on my own spit when I saw that the people had left behind a $2,200 chair just because one of the legs broke off. I pulled back the upholstery, fixed it, and kept it for a while before reselling it for $500. I get curb finds on occasion; one time there was a pile of stuff by a garbage bin (looked like some poor fella's roommate or ex kicked him out:) picked up a perfectly good 42" LCD TV, Xbox 360, Keurig coffee maker, and a bunch of movies and games. Of course, I will always hang onto money that I find on the ground!

Stuff like money I don't really take if I find it on the road. But other than that I haven't come across anything worth taking, most of the time it's just broken useless stuff.

I found a TV in a hedge, dried it out and it worked fine.
Once I was on the way to the DIY centre to buy some shelving and found the exact shelving I was looking for in a hedge on the way.

Depends what it is.
Mostly I just ignore it. Or I lay it somewhere, so that the people who might have lost it can find it

As long as its not upholstered, it should be more than fine.

Regardless if we mean alley ways I have claimed many a things, at least 150 pounds of steel, at least 5 run over animals (where I live this legal), a bench, most if not all my not upholstered furniture, two large metal storage chests, some planter pots, a portable barbecue, a stationary barbaque, I've harvested some mechanical components from home appliances, cutlery, bowls, plates, glasses and other kitchen stuff, a couple pots and pans, a knife or two, tons and tons of fire wood, two punching bags (one was a decapitated mma bag), a couch (their are ways to take upholstered stuff), a lamp or two, a couple plants, a fish tank. Most of what I own was taken from an alley way.
