Default Went on garbage trip today...john123 is owned

Here's what I found:

A prefectly working Stero system:
1 CD
Phono
Dual Tape
Radio

2 Speakers with it
A Tape drive system with the two pointers
HP Deskjet 500C
HP Deskjet 682C
A random Keyboard
A chair

I guess that's enough

No offensive but why do you do this? Seems kinda trampy to me.

Here, you can make lots of money selling these stuff. A guy who takes metal and sells it makes lots and lots of money. It's like his job.

You can find me doing it when it's on display, but in a bag, nope.

There's one guy, who drives around with a trailer on heavy garbage day and picks up stuff. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

Heck yeah....if you don't want something just set it out by the road in the evening, it'll be gone by morning.

Some people throw away some perfectly good stuff, you can pick it up and sell it for a few bucks, they're throwing it out anyway, they won't care.

Good finds LH
