Computers Get The Boot

Anyone want to network these bad boys together and play a round of Scorched Earth?

So, I gave my two old computers the boot. But not just any boot. No, these nearly-obsolete pieces of once fine equipment were not sent to the curb, not picked up by Joey Joe-Joe Jr. Shabadu, and will not find themselves slowly rusting in some municipal dump. Nope, I gave them a very special boot into the world of recycling.

Recycling computers is awesome. It saves the world from, well, a great big pile of trashed computers. It also creates a large range of jobs which Canada so desperately needs.

Except Alberta. Rotten, filthy stinking rich Alberta…

*Ahem* Anyway, it reminds me of something Suz taught me. Now, I’m the kind of guy who can’t fall asleep if I so much as accidentally drop some garbage on the ground – and leave it there. But, to help me feel better about it, Suz taught me what her friend taught her. It’s a line which holds a lot of meaning if someone challenges your decision to drop trash in a public place. A simple reply is all that’s required: "I’m keepin’ jobs in Canada."

And it’s totally true. If crusty people didn’t litter, then the prisoners who clean it up wouldn’t have jobs. And if big tattooed muscley dudes with a penchant for stabbing can’t focus on holding down a prison "job", then how can our system rehabilitate their bent minds?

Yep, garbage is good. If it weren’t for garbage, I think the overcrowded prisons would be more… uh… overcrowded.

I assure you, us Albertans would gladly trade some of these jobs and a lot of these "riches" for some decent housing prices, more space on our roads, and Tim Horton's that aren't under-staffed and can actually stay open 24/7, like in the good old days...

The Timmy's around here are struggling too, so that's one worry you can wipe away. Line-ups are out the doors half the time. And they don't even have good donuts anymore!

Would recycled computers be considered "born again"?
