A question about proper disposal of unwanted items with an unhelpful answer [The Old New Thing]
On an internal mailing list about home maintenance and ownership, somebody asked:
I have a handful of items that I need to get rid of and probably should not toss into the regular garbage. Any thoughts?
- Older TV — 32″
- Propane tanks (full)
- Lighter fluid
- Carpet glue adhesive
- Lawn fertilizer
The best reply was an unhelpful one.
You’ve pretty much got all the components you need to build a bomb. Why dispose of them?
Clever. I guess that’s one way of disposing things.
A bit of humor in the Tumblr Terms of Service:
You have to be at least 13 years old to use Tumblr. We’re serious: it’s a hard rule, based on U.S. federal and state legislation, even if you’re 12.9 years old. If you’re younger than 13, don’t use Tumblr. Ask your parents for an Xbox or try books.
As legal documents go, this one is particularly clear and well written.
