Just started a new project this week, cleaning up/painting/minor reno a old crack house. Thought everything was cleaned out etc. Washing down the top of a door frame (not looking). Climbed up a ladder to get a better look, and found I had stopped wipeing 1/2 inch before a used needle hidden on top of the door frame pointing right at where my hand was headed!. Freaked out, and checked the other door frames and found 3 more. Needless to say I learned a lesson today!

What is with putting your needles there?

I play with a (small flock of) metal detectors, in parks, schools, and playgrounds, and find 'em from time to time.... and bullets, pipes, and such.
Oh well.

See them all the time, in the middle of the street in some areas.

I can tell a drug house the minute I walk in, there's a certain smell and it seems roaches are attracted to crack too.

Geeze, you got lucky. No need to mention the possible consequences of a puncture by a needle. Gave me the shivers.
