    I would have kept it. Money showing up like that happens for a reason. The guy was poor and the universe was helping him out... but I guess in the end you can always exercise your free will and do what you want with it.

    1. Give the money back to some idiot that was walking around with 17k in a bag
    2. I have been wanting to build an outdoor kitchen...

    Basically, if I saw someone drop something then of course I'd catch up to them and return it. If I just found a big bag of money? I'm calling the local pool company to get an estimate...

    Ah, I'd have to decide which is more important. I'm leaning pool with a decent grill. Even if I had to shell out a little myself it'd be worth it in this Louisiana heat.

    I'd turn it in or directly return it. I have a 10 yr old, and I am NOT going to set a bad example by keeping something that belongs to someone else.

    Maybe the universe was testing him... and he passed.

    Re: What would you have done?

    If I just found it, and there was no way to identify who's it was, I'd probably keep it. But if I could contact the person it belonged too, I'd give it back.

    Maybe. I guess it was up to him to decide what the money meant to him, and he did.

    I can't say how I would've reacted, but from where I'm sitting I'm pretty sure I would have kept it.

    A random sack of money just screams bad mojo.

    I'd keep it. Any twinges of conscience would be assuaged by paying off my debts and helping my friends.

    If there were an easy way to find out who it belonged to, I would probably return it. If not, I'd happily keep it.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
