  1. Iv lost my cellphone in the wall, but its not my property so I cant make a hole, it dropped down to the store downstair. Im thinking of dropping the charger and maybe in 50, 100 years, someone will find it and find all the pictures of me and my wife and our dogs.. who knows.

  2. Easy ! even Orangutans can do it. You need to fill the wall of water and wait for the water to rise, then you can have your reward ! 🤓

  3. The things people lie about to get attention. It hasn't gone off for 13yrs without being plugged into something and if it has done that in the wall any reasonable person would have put a small hole in the wall, gotten it out, and patched it up.

  4. I feel like there has to be a way to solve that…especially in 13 years. Anyways…how did this end up on the news? Did he call and say 'I've got a story! I dropped an alarm clock in my wall 13 years ago and it drives me craaazyyy!'

  5. So you already know you can cut through drywall. Did you also know you can cut a hole in sheet metal air ducts? This "problem could have been solved in an afternoon 13 years ago.

  6. This is a story about human stupidity and/or laziness. The only thing between the homeowner and the off button of that alarm is 1/2" of drywall.

  7. The day the battery finally dies… They will find themselves saddened… and will always miss their friend.

  8. I don't understand. So he's running a tv cable through the air vent? Besides, after 13 years you could have come up with a way to fish the damn thing out.

  9. Someone's taken "The House With A Clock In It's Walls" too seriously – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/295801.The_House_with_a_Clock_in_Its_Walls

    But dude, just cut the wall open and get the clock out!

  10. think this is news, I have a toilet no one uses and 4 of us share one because no one will replace lightbulb in the other bathroom. been 5 years now.

    jk fuck lazy people

  11. Just pay someone to get the damn thing out of there if you're too lazy to do it. It's behind 1/2 inch worth of drywall. Hardly a Herculean task. SMH

  12. complete BS. there is no AA/AAA battery that keeps working for 13 years. after a few years they start leaking and oxidizing

  13. Yeah right. I dropped a 10 000 lumens flash light down a hole in my back yard. It runs on one AA battery. We see the light every night. That happened 50 years ago and it still shines.

  14. Batteries in alarm clocks are only to help store the time and alarm in case of a power cut. They don't actually keep the thing going. I bet if they turned all the breakers off at the fuse box the next time the alarm sounded, it would stop.

  15. "This startles guests." You know what else would startle them? Hanging out in the kitchen at about 7:50 and running out of the house yelling fire! My family loved doing pranks like this to each other! Scared the death out of people. 😂 Ohhhh, RIP Grammy…

  16. Or they dropped it down there the day before the news crew showed up and are only claiming it was 13 years ago.
    Where's the proof it's been 13 years?

  17. How the hell can they be so lazy and stupid to not doing something about that noise? it is not really that hard, seriously, a normal person won't take it for such a long time.

  18. i have a g-shock wristwatch. analog and digital. i never wear it because i dont like things on my wrist. it was a gift. its running since over 20 years now.

  19. Who the fuck got the idea that this was fit to put on TV? The crap they fill out the 24-hour news cycle with these days…

  20. Cut a damn hole in the drywall, get the thing out, add new drywall in the hole, plaster it up and paint..
    If you take your time you'll do it in 30 minutes..

    Hell of a lot better than listening to a damn alarm for 13 years.

    Lazy SOB's..
