Watch the Penn & Teller: Bullshit episode on recycling. It's pretty interesting. Turns out its actually worse for the environment to recycle plastic materials and glass because it takes so much fuel and electricity to revert them back into a reusable form. The only thing that's actually easier to recycle than remake is aluminum cans! :)
69- maybe plastic, but glass? Really? All ya gotta do is melt it down and reform it. In the ground, plastic takes up to 5000 years to break down, and glass up to 1 million years. Think of all the energy THE EARTH/SUN has to put out. You just went full retard. Never go full retard.
It's so funny tho... The lady could have just been pointing out that SO many people just throw these things away instead of getting money back for them with recycling. I think OP was just being self conscious about his appearance. So she wasn't necessarily judging anyone.. Could have just been making a simple statement!
People shouldn't judge others just on their appearance. Unfortunately they do.
Hey u should be proud! U can go that long without shaving, look like a hobo, and still keep a job to afford a place to live.... Otherwise if u don't have a job and u look homeless, it may not belong until that becomes true. you kind of brought that on yourself.
Ha my dad was at a BMW dealer and told he couldn't afford the car he was looking at when he asked about it because he was wearing a worn-out suede jacket. He's a doctor who made $300,000 a year at that time and the owner of the dealership was a patient of his. Don't judge people by their appearance...you may lose your job. :P
Or maybe she was really just commenting on the fact that people waste so much money on things like not recycling cans, and was not implying you looked like a homeless person.
