What is this thing I saw above a bus station in Germany?
A: It's a charging station for electric/hybrid busses. They usually put these at the station where the line terminates, so the bus can sit and charge for the 10-15 minutes before it starts its next route. At least that's how they work in Sweden.

Found this in an unfinished basement of an old home. Looks like a coin but it’s hollow and opens up.

Poured a glass of water last night from the tap and left it under the light on the nightstand. The next morning, I found this floating in it. What could it be?!

What is this hoof looking thing? Very light and feels rubbery. Found on farmland in Central Victoria, Australia.
A: I shoe horses for a living. I use a pour in pad that sets up and sort of looks like that. It is made to provide some cushion for a horses foot. When it comes off it looks a lot like that. You can see the edge around it. That is where some of the material was under a horse shoe.

Tiny black shiny things that came out of a pair of jeans when pulled out of wardrobe.

What is this on a pillow at a hotel I’m staying at?
