Dumpster Diving Pics (March 7, 2007)

Dumpsters are gift givers. This is one night's worth of treasures as presented in a pictorial review.

A dumpster that we raided pretty well. Wanted to take a picture of Moira in the dumpster or at least emerging from it like Oscar the Grouch, but my flash kept acting up.

Books that we found at an undisclosed location. The ones that don't sell at this particular store are thrown out, but first the cover is ripped off them so they can't be re-sold. They should have donated them to kids or some type of literacy program. But then again I don't make the rules in the world. I just point out the messed up ones.

This was all from one local super market. Everything was closed. The bagels had expired that day.

The last four pictures are of the things that Moira found on this same night. I should also note that this was the first dive that Stormy has come on with us and it was really cool. Above is some more food.

Lemon juice. Karate belt. 3 Apple Pies. Canned goods were also found, but I cannot recall what type of food they were exactly.

Snowboarding boots found at a local 'use it again' type store for sporting goods. Several pairs were in the dumpster, and Moira grabbed a size 8. I also have to note that there was an exercise bike out at this dumpster as well.

This picture pretty much sums up the amount of electronics that we found that day. I am not sure how many of them are working. Moira was going to test out what worked and what didn't. There is an atomic clock, an mp3 player, a rice cooker, halogen light, and 2 wireless mice.

Justices hear 'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' case...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A high school senior's 14-foot banner proclaiming "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" gave the Supreme Court a provocative prop for a lively argument Monday about the extent of schools' control over student speech.

If the justices conclude Joseph Frederick's homemade sign was a pro-drug message, they are likely to side with principal Deborah Morse. She suspended Frederick in 2002 when he unfurled the banner across the street from the school in Juneau, Alaska.

"I thought we wanted our schools to teach something, including something besides just basic elements, including the character formation and not to use drugs," Chief Justice Roberts said Monday.

Dumpster Diving Items In Use...

Here is a picture of a pair of New Balance sneakers that we found one night. They were in great condition. My friend Kaylee and I gave them to another firend of ours who wears them all the time. Just a reminder that dumpster diving does have a purpose.
