    Gundam trash
    This is a bit of a sad story.  Apparently the mother of a 29 year old man living in Japan (Kasai City) threw away his prized Gundam collection without his knowledge.  When he got home and couldn’t find his robot army he apparently lost it, poured kerosene in his room and set it on fire.

    It was an attempt at suicide which he couldn’t carry through since he and his 55 year old mother survived.  The house wasn’t so lucky. It burned to the ground.

    This reminds me of a friend who once had all their D&D books burned because their mother thought they were a bad influence.  Though, the destruction of his first edition Monster Manual didn’t drive him to burning down the house.

    Now, I’ve got a few collections myself but I can’t think of anything that I would go suicidal or kill over if it were lost.  I guess this is a warning to never put too much emotional attachment to any physical object.
