This is a "separator" that usually resides inside the grip of a hair brush.
See the product images of this hair brush for example: https://www.amazon.com/Olivia-Garden-Ceramic-Round-Thermal/dp/B0016KWWW2/ref=sr_1_152?keywords=hair+brush&qid=1570184388&sr=8-152
I always wanted to build one and went so far as to buy a book on the subject. Look out world! In the ensuing 22 years I've made no measurable progress.
It's a door jamb switch (an old one). Two common purposes, could have turned on the lights when the door was closed, or part of an alarm system (which I don't think would be likey for a bathroom).
Edit: Here is a modern one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0036ZA9F2

Also, how did you get that?!
Might be for precision oiling where only a little oil is needed.
That is a key chain hacksaw I saw on a prepper website. Also was this a full-size bar of soap or a standard "hotel" size? (which is also short term prison size)
Edit: putting one of these in a hotel soap bar and then putting it back on a cleaning cart would be a funny prank.
Where in England? Its most likely a "Stay Behind" box made for the British Auxiliary Units. These units were created in case the Nazis successfully invaded Britain. The build little bunkers all over the country, more in certain areas. Basically dug a hole, made a bunker and covered it up and made it looked like the natural landscape and had one or two entrances/exits. they would be loaded with supplies to form resistance groups and offer a place to coordinate attacks and they would have provided protection and security for those groups
Agree that this is a great idea. As a young, aspiring paleontologist, I got into collecting all kinds of rocks. My parents got me a mineral identification kit like this one that walked you through a series of binary tests to identify different minerals. After all, if you want to find sharks' teeth, you need to know the kind of rocks they're usually found in...

It won’t have any gas in it… I doubt there is a lighting gas plant in your town in this century. (It was usually a different type of gas than modern cooking/heating gas.)
An enjoyable book on the history of artificial lighting is “Brilliant” (by Jane Brox) which covers the gaslight era in detail!

Looks like they glued this onto a box: https://www.amazon.com/Faceted-Paperweight-Decoration-Christmas-Birthday/dp/B08G86P9Z8
Brass or copper likely. Seems like two snake heads. Indian subcontinent tends to believe in the healing or balancing powers of copper and many men wear a copper bangle as a result. Snakes can mean many things, in hindu mythology one serves as a vehicle and friend of a God, Vishnu.
See for example this, a similar-ish style. https://www.amazon.in/Copper-thick-bracelet-attractive-look-d4/dp/B00R6IEFT6

It's a travel "door lock".
This^ Literally just called a brass hammer lol : https://www.amazon.com/BRASS-HAMMER-SMALL-SOLID-JEWELRY/dp/B00TKGA0H8 it's used for soft metals, brass has more reverberation than other hammers so they don't mark the metal that you're striking.
My grandfather had these. They slip over the bottom of the glass to absorb condensation and to insulate the glass. I think the drinks are bloody marys.
I found some modern ones https://www.amazon.com/Terry-Assorted-Colors-Beverage-Covers/dp/B0081S5C0Q
It’s a tool used to help someone put on a bracelet if your alone. You put one end of the bracelet in the clamp, hold it in the hand you want the bracelet on, and you can use your other hand to clasp it.Miles Kimball Bracelet Tool Jewelry Helper
It's a collapsible chopstick. Connect the metal cover to the metal end of the wooden chopstick to extend its length for eating.

And I'm pretty sure that's gonna effect Amazon's recommendations for me for quite some time so...you're welcome.
It's a flashing LED module out of a kid's shoe:

With the slats, I thought it might be a strainer of some kind, so I searched for strainer on amazon and this was the first to come up. Are the clips in the correct position for this?

Zyklon B was the poisonous gas used by the Nazis in the death camps.
When you search for images, the only ones that look like yours are from pinterest and the ones that are in museums look totally different.
Using tineye on the pinterest image isn't helpful.
Looks like a modern day tin can. Maybe it's a fake produced by some neo-Nazi merch company? Hopefully some WWII buff finds this and puts it to rest.
By chance a large oil filled transformer nearby? They appear to be heavy test tubes fortransformer oil testing.
Oh shit, maybe we're on to something here, just found this on amazon https://www.amazon.com/River-Oracle-Invertebrate-Sample-Vials/dp/B075FYKJN4
My first guess would be that it is the separation/recrystallization of the plasticizer used in that plastic. Strange though that it only happened to one key.
Edit: could be separation of various oil plasticizers used in cellulose nitrate, similar to this. I think I've also heard about this happening with phthalates in cellulose acetates.
Edit 2: whisker like recrystallized products are found in cellulose acetate plastics that are pretty similar - paper here. I work in a museum, this is fun.

Amazon sells them for a great price. I love them because you can throw them in the dishwasher or boil them to kill bacteria.
Dress shield, aka underarm sweat pad. To protect fine fabrics like silk from sweat stains. In the old days they were made of cloth and you pinned them to the garment and washed them after use. Now they stick-on and are disposable.
The Ice Warden Self-Bondage Time Lock
Wonder if we can get more pictures, but it looks like a water filter refill cartridge.
Edit: The little black rocks are most likely the active carbon that filters out organic impurities for part of the filtration process.
Fun fact, potassium sorbate is what's preventing me from making Hawaiian Punch wine!
I've experimented by making wine out of all types of juices by simply putting a little least into the top of a 64oz juice bottle, adding a water bubbler where the cap would go, and then waiting a few days.
I wanted so bad to use the above method to make wine out of Hawaiian Punch, but alas, potassium sorbate is a fungicide meant to prevent that very thing. The yeast just float on the top, dead.
I did manage to make wine out of Capri Sun, though. Would recommend.
This listing for another trolley that also has a 5th wheel in the middle says that it makes it easier to steer and turn on the spot. I guess it acts as a pivot so that if you push the handle sideways the trolley turns rather than just moving sideways.
Looks like it could be some kind of physical USB key that enables some piece of specialty software or hardware to be licensed to run. Not uncommon for really high end software. I would guess that the odd shape of this thing makes it so that it can only be inserted in to a specific piece of hardware to prevent someone from loading this in a normal USB port and potentially copying the contents.
Edit: not sure if this helps, but the barcode translates to FJAXFAW4
Edit 2: Found this by searching for "USB software key specialized format" - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074W9Q275?m=A314BA49BZ6MVR&ref_=v_sp_widget_detail_page
It appears to be a kind of audio book format for the blind that is available through some library systems.
They are called Lid Sid and are for keeping a gap between a cooking pan and its lid whilst cooking to help prevent the water boiling over.
The ball, usually a blue color attracts dear/horse flies. Once they land on it they can't leave as they take off vertically and the net catches them. You see them in areas with livestock to protect them from the flies.
My guess is that you actually expand your fingers with them in the slot while holding the ball part in the palm of your hand. Rock climbers do that with rubber bands.
Edit: like this maybe
Here you go op. Enjoy!

I think there may be scanner apps for phones that will combine all the photos you take of a document. This might be one of them.
It's a WiFi antenna. It extends the normal reach of the WiFi card.
The connecter you have there should plug into the WiFi card on the back of the computer.
Edit: Here's an Amazon link to a similar one. Best I've got atm.
$6 on Aliexpress is the expensive stuff. Case in point.
No, what he is mistaking for teeth are actually what we geologists call hackle fringe fracture pattern.
That actually looks like a 45 degree offset picatinny rail. It's used for mounting stuff like flashlights on guns and airsoft guns.
Edit: I'm fairly confident that it is this exact product:
Might be a seaweed farm, according to Wikimapia
yeh it looks like this thing summer breeze air freshener
*also- "I can barely open a jar of peanut butter, why would I be able to identify that?" That's awesome ..this is probably going to be my new go-to excuse whenever I don't want to do something.
The creepyass thing on the right, you mean? It says ningyo no miira, which is some kinda Japanese Fiji Mermaid hoax.
You should go see it, OP. It's apparently at this temple.

It's for salad dressing.
It's a key to paper towel dispensers, and toilet paper dispensers. Well, actually each side is a key. This particular one will fit Georgia Pacific products. Amazon link to this key.
Looks very similar to bitter melon pills. Also note similar looking items in the frequently bought together section. They do not appear as green though.

I really don't think it's a wood holder. typical rounds are cut at around 16" and this looks to be more like ~8-10" across. Typically firewood holders are made to be wider/deeper than the logs fro stability. Additionally, they are usually made in a spot that makes sense in terms of accessibility, and with the four feet of lawn you have between your walkway and the structure, it seems more like a privacy screen.
It is more likely a brick fence with wooden spans that have been removed, or like someone else said there was a lattice between them on which plants could grow.
source: contractor, although that doesn't mean I'm right!
mm...I don't really see any of the normal cues I would use to narrow down the location here. Honestly I couldn't even be 100% this is in Japan, but then again there's a whole lot of Japan that I'm not familiar with so I can't say one way or the other.
The only thing I've been able to find of even remote interest is this stock photo taken by a Thai person that resembles the streetlamp in the photo, with an extra middle lamp.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but on the other hand I have just discovered that I am a hack compared to /u/DavidLasnier and the good people at /r/whereisthis
I have some in my closet doors I believe they're for an automatic light system. (Kind of similar to the refrigerator light, open the door it comes on.)
It's a water saving device. I had an identical one on the kitchen faucet at one of my old apartments. When you're hand-washing dishes, or brushing your teeth, it lets you turn the water on and off by flipping the little lever instead of turning the taps. Makes it more convenient so you're less likely to let the water run for no reason.
Looks like a wrench that comes with a new kitchen faucet. It's used to tighten the large nut in the center and designed to work around the water hose. Similar to this.
It is a "suture hook" it is in the fifth listing from the bottom here
This listing instead labels the same device as a "retraction hook" .
So it is a hook thing used in dissection for many purposes :)
Google Earth historical imagery shows the gray box was added October 20 2012. The latest image available is June 2 2015 but the site is obscured by clouds.

RSA OTP token. The number sequence displayed is unique to the device, and can be used as a second form of authentication (in addition to a password) to grant access to email, VPN, etc.
That seam could be the Taenia Coil, you can see it here. You can also see the segments of intestine in your photo. My Father was a trapper, he used to leave animals out for the dogs to eat and their intestines looked just like this after a couple days in the sun. The only thing that doesn't fit is the lack of a smell. Even if it isn't intestine, from the picture I feel like there's no way that thing doesn't have a bad odor! Haha
You can buy a brand new, fancy schmanzy one for the low, low price of 249.99 at amazon.
It's for spaghetti. The holes are to measure serving sizes.
Here's a new one:
Dutch Renaissance Domino Game(amazon link) - rules are lost, "historical decor".
I think it's an old Jewelers or engravers vise like one of these but an old version
Banding machine %100.
Used to wrap poly bands/straps around boxes or products, usually when preparing them for shipping.
Finally got one! WooHoo!
It's the gas fireplace globe valve. there should be a matching key that sits over the rod. However, if the rod moves side-to-side I would have the valve checked before using the fireplace. You can buy replacement keys online.
I got my dad this collar for our black schnauzer last year (he was having trouble keeping track of him in the yard at night) and even though the advert looks pretty shopped it works perfectly, although now he is slightly creeped out by the floating orange circle wandering around the yard.

My dad used to keep pigeons and had these around his sheds and the house, i could hear the noise and it would drive me insane whenever i was in the garden. Anyway it is to deter cats, rodents all that sort of thing.. https://www.amazon.com/FAYINWBO-Activated-Squirrels-Protected-Courtyard/dp/B07P6673C5/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=sonic+cat+repellent&qid=1569791249&sr=8-8
CPAP hose holder
Not sure how this came to mind, but it looks like a part of an adjustable mount for a prism for some kind of laser testing equipment. Think Real Genius.
I have this book on my bookshelf about perfume and it says that with the exception of some very cheap fragrances, they do indeed last a very long time.
Similar to this chlorine float but I can't find the exact design. It's definitely a chemical float of some kind, be it for a pool or clothes washer, something of that kind.
It’s the gripper for a zoodler or spiroslicer. Look in the product photo.

It looks like calcium chloride, an ice melter. Maybe it was put down on the roads, and then you dissolved it by washing your window and then it recrystallized.
For watch repair. In yours, the item on the right is for removing watch backs. Blue item on left is for removing and inserting pins on metal watch bands.
Ohhh have you tried this type of detangler?
You can use it on wet curly hair from the bottom up and it works great and is super quick! Then you can just go back in after and blow dry with a boars brush and you won’t lose any bristles!
It's a respirator
EDIT: More specifically it seems to be something called an escape respirator
>Escape respirator is a portable appliance regenerating breathable air to help provide respiratory protection for emergency escape from zones containing harmful gases. A cross-breed between a gas mask and a respirator, the emergency respirator is used extensively in mining and chemical industries.
It’s a solid fuel camp stove. The metal part folds out and you sit a pot on top of it. The fuel blocks are burned one at a time but are stored inside of it when not in use.
Edit: similar to this
It looks like the rings (like this) you can buy to put around the necks of bottles (usually wine) to prevent drips running down the bottle. That looks awful big for one of those, though.
> why the king of hearts is a blue heart
It probably came from a 4 colour deck although I've never seen a deck where hearts aren't red.
It also may have come from a deck like this one.
Bicycle Blue Dragon Back Playing Cards
That might be a whisky stone shaped like a bullet. It doesn’t look like the cap is separate from the rest of the shell. Is it pretty heavy?
This seems like a possibility. Like maybe it's meant to keep something at a specific height/thickness? But then those usually have two points like these: https://www.amazon.com/Rose-Levy-Beranbaum-Signature-Thickness/dp/B007MP38N2/
This one's gonna drive me nuts!
You can get 'Humane Traps' that they just walk into, it's like a box with a flap that allows them to walk in but not out. You can get ones that can catch 4/5 mice.
If you use these, remember to check them regularly and place something inside for the mice to hide in (but not too much otherwise you won't be able to see if you have caught anything).
You can usually find these traps in pet shops or online (Amazon has a few).
Try putting some bait like peanut butter, they usually love it.
I've used This One in the past, did catch 2 with it.
That’s a solar powered bird bath fountain. The beep you hear might be the impeller in the pump which can sometimes make a high pitch whining noise when run dry.
It probably won’t make the noise if you move it at night.
Edit: here’s a link to a similar one
Given what others have suggested I think I found this item's product page on Amazon.
"Sobetter HDTV Antenna, Amplified Outdoor 150 Mile Range Digital TV Antenna"
I know it's solved and the answer is correct, but just throwing it out there that it could have been for an under the sink reverse osmosis system for cleaner drinking water.

Combination squares sometimes come with a variety of rules. Sometimes a six inch might be the handiest and sometimes an eighteen inch. They can also come with different heads to put on the rule. See https://www.amazon.com/Fowler-Combination-Square-Set/dp/B00GCEP2H4 for more examples.
Its a replica of a medallion from the Hunger games. Scroll to the comments you'll see a picture:
It looks very similar to this thing.
Maybe try screwing the cap on and then pulling it straight off? If you get what I mean? I think the sharpening tip is meant to be screwed onto the longer piece, and the cap pulled off. Turning it has inadvertently unscrewed the tip, leaving it in the cap.
The logo is for MG Cars. It looks to me like the metal part of this style of keychain, with the leather long gone.
It's a wipe-aid
Here's an example on Amazon. Note the inside of the bulb. I used them for two porch lights during halloween. https://smile.amazon.com/Flicker-Flame-Dances-Flickering-Orange/dp/B000OGYC22/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1545511375&sr=8-8&keywords=flicker+light+bulbs+1+watt
