15 ways to recycle plastic milk jugs

Sep 15th 2007 10:17AM Hey Deputy Duh-dawg,

So I want to float my kids on, say, a rusty metal board, that's OK, b/c I, as the Parent would be right there w/ them?

Using your logic, why not let your infant children play w/ sharp objects near electical outlets. I mean, after all, I'd be right there w/ them, what's the worst that could happen?
Heck, why not encourage my teenage kids to have as much sex as they want, as long as it's under my roof. I mean c'mon, it'll be OK, b/c I'll be so close by. I'll even provide the music, low lighting, and condoms, etc.....

And while we're at it, why don't I let my kids bike near an interstate. No doubt my mere presence will prevent any undue harm, right?

Heck, let you kids hang out w/ pedophiles while your at it. Just keep'em w/in earshot, eh?

DeputyDawg, you're do you understand why your logic is so flawed? You don't respect an opinion merely b/c it fell out of someone's mouth who's well intentioned. The article's ideas were ludicrous, and people rightly pointed out the dangers associated w/ some of them. Get it?

Now back to the real world - I'm not denigrating creativity. But lemme ask you, can you think of any LESS creative than using those friggin' milk jugs as piggy banks... or bird feeders... or, God forbid, a friggin' toilet bowl brush.

Bottom line, there really isn't much you can do w/ these. The fishing ideas were the best I heard, but once again, that's, what, about .00005% of the population who'd use'em that way? Just recycle the damn things and be done w/ it.

Pfffft indeed!

15 ways to recycle plastic milk jugs

Sep 14th 2007 8:01PM To CamCam: I dunno, let me see... storing milk jugs w/ dog poop in them until they're full of dog poop... is that white trash?

Hmmm... I mean, sure, it smells great, and the flies have an excellent place to plant their larvae, and when you ultimately throw away the milk jug containers full of poop instead of recycling them you fill up precious landfill space... but is that really white trash?

Ding ding ding! We have a winner. Yes, Mr. CamCam, you ARE indeed white trash. Not only that, you're witty to boot! Thank GOD you're 're-using' the container for such a purpose i/s/o recycling them or creating a compost heap. You're making me wonder if anyone has ever seen your wife and your daughter in the same room at the same time.

To Smarteepantz: I don't understand your logic. What do you mean 'double the trash?' If you recycle all the milk containers you buy, where's the 'trash' aspect come in. I'm all in favor of child creativity, and if you think decorating a milk jug enhances such creativity, God Bless Ya. I'm just off the opinion that they're a lot more creative ways to get you kids brain firing on all cylinders than slicing and dicing a milk jug to create - what else - a friggin' piggy bank.

To Karen: Not that was funny!!! :) Very cool.

Bottom Line: Just recycle them. All the other 'uses' I've heard, ESPECIALLY THE DOG CRAP ONE FROM CAMCAM, are obviously a cry for help from a certain segment of the population.

15 ways to recycle plastic milk jugs

Sep 14th 2007 3:27PM In other words, there really isn't much you can use plastic milk jugs for. Honestly, you need maybe 10 of these for what the average person would possibly use them for.

A seed starting container? OOOOKKKKKK. Yea, I'll jump right on that.

Ah yes, the good ol' white trash bird feeder. Classy

A scope? Yea, b/c the sturdy plastic handle ones which last a lifetime are just too inconvenient.

Sweet Moses on a Pogo Stick - a Piggy Bank?!? NNNOOO. Have we learned nothing as a civilization? Please raise your hand for how many of us had those as a kid... and it collected about a 1.37 in change before getting tossed.

Toilet Brush? TOILET BRUSH? Yea, it's soooo stable to put your toilet brush in an ol' plastic milk jug... and ain't it fun to keep picking that oh so clean brush off the floor?

Flooters for your kids... Do I even need to comment on this? See 'white trash look' above.

Rock n Roll!!! The funnel! Yes!!! By all means, go work on your car with one of these as your funnel. Go ahead... I dare ya.

Permanent marker for plants? Harmless I suppose, but unless your garden is the size of Idaho, exactly how many do you need? And does anyone see the irony of planting plastic sticks into fertile ground?

I could go on and on, but you get the point. It's time to be realistic here. Of course everyone wants a clean environment, but right now, efforts should focus on recycling. 99.9% of the population simply is not going to utilize any of these idea. They're just silly. And before you dog me, honestly ask how many juges could you possibly use for this? Just recycle them and move on w/ your life.
