    We have a 95gal recycling can that goes out biweekly.  A compost can that is the next size down and goes out on the alternate weeks from the recycling and the trash is the next size down from that and goes out weekly.  When we have a houseful, we buy trash tags from the city that we put on trash bags and they pick those up.  I have no idea what we pay, but I believe it’s based on the size of the can for the trash only.
    We now have the special bags........10  dollars for five bags

    Just to toss a wrinkle neck into the punch bowl- in my college youth (granted many decades ago) if you were a member of a sorority or fraternity the fraternities and their boys were always referred to as fraternity (fill in the blank).  The frat boys term was reserved for the GDI's.  God Da-n Independents.  FWIW-
    And campus life is a whole lot different now-

    That’s not bad at all…depending on how big they are. The stickers here are $3-4 each, supposed to be limited to 33gal bag but I just put out the 55gal drum liners and they always take them.  They’re also supposed to hit you with an extra charge for overstuffed cans where the lid won’t close but it’s clear from watching the drivers they have zero interest in paperwork or charging extra.

    Yep, nothing like hooking up three phase in a torrential down pour. Been there, done that, and got a charge. 

    Though it actually doesn’t start transferring power until it is hooked up and your payment info clears.

    Found this to be a cool read, it gives insights as to where current research and understanding is...
    "In the Mind of a Whale"
    "How can we make sense of the biggest brains on the planet?"
    Longish read, notation at top of articles states: 4,200 words, about 21 minutes.  Took me about 25 min. but my brain is addled by age and abuse.

    Profile of a "Stone Skipping" tournament competitor.  Apparently in Britain they judge by distance, not skips, and refer to it as "Skimming".  A long read about a intriguing person...
    A video of his world record, at least 88 skips!

    @dbCooper Long read and felt like I should skim/skip along but interesting.  Thanks for the post.
    When my oldest son was 2-5 years old his favorite pastime was throwing rocks in the water.  Being a sailor, the water was always close by. Just had to find the right location.  I was always happy if I could get 10 skips.  No skills here.

    @alaskanassasin - The protagonist that is the subject of the article sources from the Lake Erie region in Pennsylvania, near where he lives. 
    My take is that the rules allow you to throw what you bring but, I have not researched the rules.

  • Lots of things that happen in politics are funny, fewer things are cool.  Regardless, we don’t bring them into this thread.  There are a lot of other threads on politics here in the OT section, so please put stuff in one of those or start a new one if need be.   We should have at least one thread in the OT section that’s free of sh!tposting, thanks.

    Guess John put you in your place fast… your just another minium in his eyes! You don’t have enough clout to defy the “great & powerful” JIC on here.  Do not piss JIC off, or you will be ridiculed and an outcast on this forum.  He will call you a drunk racist Nazi fish.  Don’t post things that he does not agree with, or make him look stupid.  Nor anything political for Gods sake. 

    Dude…fish… you deserve more respect than this…your a senior member of this forum, and have earned the right to post whatever you want.  Don’t let others on here try to control your posts!
