Where would you hide something if you didn't want it to be found?

Asked by AshLeigh (15001 points ) January 6th, 2012

I hide things everywhere. Inside of books, under floorboards, under the drawers of my dresser. :)
What about you?

I sometimes carve out a hollow space somewhere and stick it in there and then cover it up one way or another.

I also have several secret pockets in a number of articles of my clothing.

Even without any clues, someone might still find it. So I would destroy it.

But if I really wanted to keep it, yeah, under the floor boards. I used to hide smokes behind my bookshelf so my dad wouldn’t find them. Not that he would, he didn’t snoop around in my bedroom. Or if he did, I was never aware of it, and all my cigarettes were always were I left them.

Depends on what I’m hiding though, really, and for what reason.

You do not want to know.

@ragingloli should we get a cop to frisk you, thoroughly?

Spread them cheeks! Lol

I have a safe in my house, and I keep the key hidden.

It’s empty though…haha!

Hide it in your ass….or…. Just somewhere where folks aren’t going to look.

In the ocean, weighted down.
Just heavy enough as not to float yet light enough to be slowly moved by a favorable current.

On a slightly more serious note, often the best hiding place is in full view.

It depends what it was. Something small could be hidden behind the electricity sockets in the wall.

This seems like the sort of thing I wouldn’t want to tell people. What if I really need to hide something, someday?

In my goose barn. The goose guards will keep it safe. ;-)

A safe deposit box.

Taped it under drawers or behind heavy mirrors. One time I even did that with my parent’s own drawers. I figured there is no chance in the world they would try and look there. Hee hee.

I prefer the magician philosophy when it comes to “hiding things”. The goal is to set up a deception that is easy to accept. So having a false bottomed dresser drawer is one thing, but it’s more affective if the real drawer contains some lose cash, a fake ring and a broken watch.

I’m really bad at hiding stuff.

Coloma's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Um..no, is there a key there or?

look closely at the pelicans left foot (camera right)

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies safety pin with key?

Coloma's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Sooo, do I get a prize? LOL

Sunny2's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Well, there goes that secret hiding place.
I hide things and then can’t find them myself. I leave notes saying where things are hidden, but not what is hidden there. Safe deposit box is best for me,

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Okay well you’ve found the key @Sunny2. Now if you can find the house I’ll give you @Coloma‘s prize… unless she finds it first.

Sunny2's avatar

I won’t give away your secret, but all the people who live in your neighborhood and frequent Fluther will know. You could move the pin to the other foot and then you’d be safe.

Take whatever I want to hide and bag it up inside a concrete/cement. After a while, that should turn to stone, then take it to the sea and throw it there! Even sonars wouldn’t recognize it because it will be like a stone in the ocean!

mazingerz88's avatar

@Tbag just double check the stone isn’t really the shape of a dead body. Lol.

Tbag's avatar

@mazingerz88 hahaha! I already made sure…

There was a radio contest in my city. The prize was $10,000 dollars to the first person that discovered the hiding place of an old Civil War trumphet. A new clue was given each week and the contest lasted a year. Some of the clues were way off the beaten path to locate the trumphet. This was done for a reason to extend the contest.

Finally, around the first of December, the clues were given out twice a week and the trumphet was found just before Christmas.

The clues took us to the airport, to a gun range, to several pizza parlors and a nearby Civil War battleground, with no luck.

The final clue had the initials A. R. on the hiding place.

Who would ever have guessed the trumphet was buried next to a Civil War burial site with the fallen soldiers name of Andrew Reynolds on it?????????\

Not me.

Was that a great hiding spot or what?

Several years ago, I hid $40 dollars in cash somewhere in my house. It’s still missing.

Inside a copy of “How My Body Works” in which I carved out a square hole through all the pages except the first and last few. After seeing the title, no one in my family would look any farther!!
