  1. Yesterday I did something I didn't think I'd ever do in my life- I pulled an unopened copy of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire from a dumpster. A group of my friends and I got together and decided to go dumpster diving at a plaza in the snow. I checked the laws, and dumpster diving is legal in my town, so I went. The plaza contained a GameStop, and that's mostly what we looked for. To my surprise, we found five Xbox 360 games (three of which were scratched and unusable,) some of those cardboard cutouts they set up, about 12 DS game cases without games, and a Wii Remote. But that's not the half of it. I discovered a bag which contained a brand-new, unopened, perfectly normal copy of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. It was like it came straight off the shelves. (Granted, it smelled like poop, but some Febreeze fixed that.)
    Anyway, I was pretty impressed by what you can find in the trash. I don't think I'm ever going to do it again, mostly because it smelled like moldy pizza (due to the Chuck E. Cheese's next door) and because I accidentally touched some other gross stuff. I saw some videos on YouTube of people actually pulling full consoles out of the trash. Really cool, but I think I'll pass next time.
    Do any of you do dumpster diving? Have you found anything cool? It would be interesting to know.
  2. Interesting :p
  3. I work for a retail establishment and I must say dumpster divers are the bane of my life. I prolly throw 4 or 5 out a week.
  4. I have heard that dumpster diving at large colleges is a good way to get nice stuff. The idea is that it is cheaper for foreign students to just repurchase stuff in their home country rather than shipping it all back home.
  5. I understand why, it's not fair they get all sorts of free stuff while everyone else pays.
    That said, i'd like to keep my Pokemon game, please :p
