Stupidest Criminalization of Innocent Activity Ever

Stealing rubbish.

  1. Aren't we supposed to reduce reuse recycle?

    And man I don't mind saving the planet, but not if it means more materials flowing to China! Isn't it enough that they still our manufacturing jobs?!

  3. "Still" works in that context: a bit poetic, perhaps, but still...

    We used to have "recycle bins" in my old community in Connecticut. I'd put the bin out streetside of my semi-rural on Thursday night, and awaken on Friday about 4:00 by a loud muffler and bottles clanking, damn poachers! My sleep was an expense I would not bear. I started bringing my recyclables to the dump after a few months. I believe I was sending them to the "waste to energy" pile, instead of re-use. Oh well. I'm happy that I have no state mandated waste programs where I live today. I enjoy the looks on visitors' faces when I tell them to just throw the bottles in the trash can... "we don't give a shit down here," I tell them.

    I don't know much about carbon emissions and global warming, but I do know that there's a lot of vacant land out there available for land-fill. We ain't running out of space, don't let them shit you.

  5. Someone doing this at 4 am should be ticketed for disturbing the peace, but not "trash theft."

  6. Woody -

    Does this unwillingness to bear mean that you have ceased sleeping? (Those better qualified than I to evaluate your posts can probably answer this without your input.)

    Perhaps my English, is... inelegant ( a nod to the Simpsons?) "My sleep" was intended to mean a period of time that is generally used for sleeping. Back in those days I used to set my alarm clock for 4:45, which was early enough to commute "comfortably" to Manhattan. I you woke me up at 4:00, you effectively stole 45 minutes of my sleep. Give me, say, $150 each event, and we're even.
