    It's possible to completely incinerate everything without leaving a mess and recycle all elements. It just costs $$ is all.

    Gotta be cheaper than loading it aboard a ship and transporting it a few thousand miles, unloading it, etc.

    And I'm not counting the source-end "sorting" operation. Our own curbside recycler now is very picky about what they'll take. For example, they won't accept yogurt tubs or plastic jars.

    They already don't take glass, so I figure that our only alternative is to forget about wasting time washing containers and just dump it all into the trash.

    That's essentially what the Global investigation found. The markets for recycled material are getting far more picky and a good portion, 25% to 50% of what is picked up to be recycled now ends up in landfill.

    But I'm not surprised. Dirty money pervades the world economy.

    The Toronto Raptors just got their asses handed to them as well.

    Only Drake can save you now!

    What is the Toronto Raptors? Never mind - I looked it up. They are a bunch of tall USans who play that stupid game invented by that fellow from up the river by Ottawa. They were hardly handed their asses in losing in overtime in a series that now stands at 2-1.

    And that is me on that subject for the next very long time.

    Damn you, I had that third game recorded ready to watch tonight. My ass-handing was a reference to the second game.

    Common, I know you're a secret baller.

    I am proud to state that I don't even know which kind of ball the "Toronto Raptors" use in their sport. A big orange sphere, a smaller white geodesic spheroid, a dark brown oblate spheroid with pointy ends, little yellow dayglo bouncy balls with fur, hard plastic heavy balls with fingerholes .... I remain blissfully ignorant, although contextual clues lead me to guess that they may be using the big orange sphere. I wonder how that works on an ice rink though.

    Like al I take pride in my disgust at all professional sport. If the wind is good I sometimes make an exception for the finals in foiling catamaran races, over 100 ft.

    He's not ours. He renounced his citizenship in order to accept the peerage. He's British. (Although I understand he has a work permit in Canada. We don't mind that if he actually does some work.)

    Hmmm, maybe we could convince DJT to do likewise. He seems to like the name "Baron".

    Not to make light of the above, but isn't this getting a little ridiculous?
