5ยข a can/bottle in NY/HI. My mom runs a lunch joint and makes a pretty penny from recycled cans she gets back.

Maybe. I just naturally recycled, because I am a good human being. I don't have to get paid to do it.

1) I would recycle anyways, so I don't like your implications.

2) I'm not really getting 'paid' per say. You should read the wiki link I linked to earlier. It's more collecting back a deposit you already paid.

3) Its not about being a good or bad person, the whole program is a pragmatic one designed to encourage people to increase recycling, and it's been an overwhelming success.

I once filled my car up with aluminum cans I'd been saving up for like two years but ended up spending more on the gas to get to the recycling place than I got for the cans from said place.

I still save my cans, but less for the money and more for the fact that my building has this tiny container for recycling for all 8 of us and we end up filling it long before they empty it. I might just put an ad up on Craigslist for the cans, they're filling up my garage.

I don't even understand how this is possible. We save enough to fill a car, and when it's full, that's usually at least like ~$40-50 of cans. When we save enough to fill a van or truck, it can be more than $100. Are you driving to another state or something for recycling? Do you not have the equivalence of CRV in the state you're at? Are you an idiot who doesn't crush their own cans so that you drastically decrease the volume your cans/bottles take up?

If you had ~$40 of cans in your car, if your car gave you ~20mpg, you'd have to drive 200 miles round trip to make that a losing proposition.

We do not have CRV in my state. It was based on weight for the aluminum itself. I got $12 for the deal and had to drive to another county to find a place willing to take them.

I didn't actually do any real math to find out how much it cost for gas (didn't even really check how far I drove), but the whole ordeal took a couple hours to do, so even if the gas cost less the time I wasted did not.

Man. I would probably have waaay more to complain about in this thread if I lived in some backwards-ass places like Wisconsin.

Do you roughly know the weight of the recyclables you have stored up/how much that last time you saved up? The recycling center near me pays ~$1.50/lb of aluminum cans. So walking in with like, 50lbs of cans will net you like $75 bucks. If you only got paid like $12 here, you probably didn't even have a single full bag of recyclables.

I got a pay raise!

Kinda...

My employer raised wages finally. What nobody will tell you however, is that this is the first time in FIFTEEN years there's been a pay increase, and that the pay raise barely made up for half of inflation over that period of time.

Damn I gotta find a new job. :lol:

Stop teaching. They don't appreciate you. Become a mangaka.

If only life were that easy, cross.

It should be though. I could write manga better than the hundreds of hacks doing it right now. If I were to ever make a comic, first one I'd make would be a gag comic where the MC is the hapless mascot character. They'd have to continually work to justify their existence to the party, and keep from constantly shitting their pants, and always get the short end of the stick in any given scenario.

I can't believe that literally half a decade has passed since Lost ended and that shit still makes me angry to this day when I think about it.

Oh, also a couple days ago I woke up with a spider on my face. Fuck that spider.

The fact that it ended or the way that it ended?

The spiders are going to wrap you in a massive web and take you away.

The way. I'm actually so glad it ended. I hated it for all but maybe the first year I watched it (when I caught up with the first season or two after it had started) and then it was just a bunch of fucking garbage for the rest of its run.

I just emailed a quality comment to the company that makes the brand of tortillas I like to buy. I am so fucking old I can't even take it sometimes.

Was it a complaint or were you offering praise? What type of tortillas?

Complaint, man. That's the worst part. They're fucking flour tortillas and half the time I buy them they're stuck together like a fucking brick and trying to separate them rips them apart and makes them unusable, it's fucking maddening.

I can picture it in my head... narrated in Liquid's voice.

Dude these are literally the BEST tortillas I have ever had. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?


Edit - Aww a complaint? Hmm...

Dude these are literally the WORST tortillas I have ever had. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?

I like how thick and malleable they are when they aren't stuck together and they taste good. :(

Yeah, they're my favorite as long as I can get them to work right. Having them rip up like that fucking sucks. All the other tortillas I tried have texture like construction paper and they break in half when you microwave them for 10 seconds.

Correspondence with my tortilla service provider as continued. Can't wait to see if this leads anywhere. As a consumer I feel like I have a legitimate and justified complaint and at the very least I demand replacement tortillas.

It's been a week and haven't gotten a follow up from the tortilla people. They asked for my mailing address so I hope they're at least mailing me a coupon or something.

They better send you some pre-made tacos or something for all this effort.
