yea but it probably short circuited lol because one part of the 20 pin thing could've touched before the other part did, and it couldnt get the electricity through

A lawn on which trees are grown outside your house. Do you actually know anything about anything? If you are just going to flame on things that you do not understand then it is time to move on and do something else, or become open to opinions and develop the ability to learn.

As for the legality of taking something from the street put out for collection, well that would be acceptable if you had permission from the original owner. Failing that, it is probably theft but the deliberate dumping in the street would show disdain on the part of the original owner i.e. they do not care as to whether or not the item in question is safe.

over here, when someone puts stuff in the garbage, they don't want it anymore. therefore i can take it. most of the time it has a "free" sign beside it
