My AntMiner S5 is report 2 FoundBlocks after just 15 hours running.
I'm using nicehash pool.
Does that mean that if I were mining solo I would have 50 bitcoins by now?

no, mining in solo would not have earned you those two blocks in the same way, because the work would be different if you were to mine in solo

*hash points your miner at who knows where.

They even include a hack in their cgminer fork version that allows them to do this without you even knowing and no log of it on the console in the normal running mode.

It was obviously mining an alt-coin if it found blocks.

... hopefully they paid you for that mining also ...

Yeah not a chance, sounds like they aren't currently mining Bitcoin but some other coins currently.

This will be a more probable explanation. The blocks are not bitcoin but other altcoin. If they are bitcoin, you are very lucky.
