    I've come to trust corks more than bottle caps from this observation but with a quick visit to homes you can compete for doorstops with friends. I notice that the metal pieces have a hole thats doing things in my home I didn't plan. So i want to get some friends together to collect them from people in visits less than four hours at a time, strictly enforced.

    I have ones that you put in the door hinge. Those will be hard to remove without being noticed while you do it.

    I had one that was the spring type that was either in the door or the floorboard. The cat started batting it and it made that funny boing sound.

    I've missed you, OP. Your do a much better job doing what you do than, say, that Infinitethreadfriend guy.

    In a sense I collected a doorstop.

    As a kid I was fascinated by one of my grandma's doorstops which actually looked like a lump of poo. It wasn't until I was nearly 20 when I took a good look at it and saw it was essentially this:

    an antique hand carved soapstone vase, which I assumed was rare because who ever saw such a thing in MIAMI?

    I always wanted it but it wound up being given to a cousin (a GIRL, of course, they always get the china, silver, crystal, etc. while us gays get NADA). But I got over it - by spending $120 for a BETTER version I saw in a junk shop. (They're that common.) Take THAT, Grandma!

    This is exactly how I feel when OP posts something. Crack and the internet, don't mix.
