Hey, I see some sinks in there. That is just not kosher.

Always separate your sinks from your toilets when taking out the recycling.

Like you've never not given a shit about the difference between a toilet and a sink...

Slightly off-topic, but I've always wondered if those figurines made out of 'porcelain resin' were made out of ground up toilets and plastic.

When I was a kid, the phone company was encouraging people to switch from rotary to touch-tone phones by offering credit on a new phone if you brought in your old, rotary one. One day my dad and I went on a walk along a small creek that ran through the edge of my town. After a nice walk, and about to turn back, the view suddenly opened to an enormous hill of rotary phones, in all shapes and colors. We guessed the area was being used as a temporary dump by the telco. We clambered our way to the top and looked around in utter disbelief.

I'd like to take this opportunity to direct you to "Perfect Time To Take a Crap In The Sink" from MeFi's own ORthey. Since it... relates and all.

No doubt one of those ideas was,

"I should photograph that giant hill of broken toilets and post it on the Internet."

Our apt building just replaced all of the tiolets in our building. I was there when they did it. At first I was excited at the prospect of being the first to get to (ahem) use our new tiolet. As far as I know I've never been afforded this opprotunity. I stepped out into the hallway midway through the process and was met with a hallway lined with everyones old tiolets. The smell wasn't that bad. I assume everyone had cleaned thier old tiolets in anticipation of having a complete stranger touching and eventually wraping thier arms around and carrying away these things we had all spent so many years depositing our filth into. as luck would have the dumpster where all of the old cammodes were being tossed, was parked below our balcony. Seeing them all together like that.. wierd.... Kind of reminded me of the cumlulative impact of waste. Like when I see an ashtray full of cig butts.
