Drewva sez, " This guy just outside San Antonio was clearing some brush on his land and finds a discarded 'surface to air missile launcher.' Apparently he called up all the federal agencies to come and pick it up and they couldn't decide what to do."
My first thought was abandoned LARP-prop, but that seems unlikely.
Man finds missile launcher in Comal County (Thanks, Drewva!)
"I had never seen it before," said Schule, a 34-year-old Web developer. "I looked at it, and it kind of looked like a missile launcher."
Schule took a closer look. It was a long, forest-green metal tube. A decal on it read: "Guided Missile and Launcher, Surface Attack."
The discovery was the start of a surreal journey for Schule. Somehow, an unarmed anti-tank weapon -- or a very good fake -- wound up on his land at Beck Road and Kirk Lane in the Hill Country, miles away from a military installation.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
