In Alberta, nearly every beverage container requires a deposit, including milk and juice containers. All of these can be returned to a bottle depot for refunds. We see people looking through garbage cans, recyle bins, and dumpsters for empties to take back. One presumes most of them are homeless, and/or jobless. I guess it keeps the items out of the landfills (although we do have an excellent recycling/composting program in Edmonton) and provides some cash for those willing to do what it takes to recover them.
Even when I was a kid back in the 70's, we had this. We were horrified when we went to the States and saw all the glass bottles littering the highways.

I love little black dogs! My current and last pooch were black. While a good picture is not always easy (you need good lighting), there is no doubt as to their expressions! If my dog weren't anti-cat, I'd have a tuxedo kitty too.

Ooh, I like it! Wish I had known sooner, would have done something for today. (Who has school on Saturday?) Thanks for the list, I see there's a participating Indigo across town.

I used to work at a movie theatre (best job for a teenager ever!). I still love popcorn. When I go to the movies I sneak in my own pop, but blow the budget on popcorn.

I'm not an American, so this is just an outsider's opinion. I don't understand how anyone thinks it does not affect them. Maybe not today, but it will in the long run. Is your government representative getting paid during this "furlough"? Is it possible to find candidates for office that are there to do their job, not there to keep their job?
Not like politics are all rosy here either:(

Some of those people spent 8 hours a day, more with overtime, 50 weeks a year, for over 40 years, at a job that sucked the life out of them. Only to retire with their gold watch at 65, and die a few years later without a complaint. Oh boy.

People have the attitude that school is for entertainment, not education. Sure it should be interesting, but everyone has responsibilities, and a student's responsibility is to go to school and do their best to learn. Lack of personal accountability permeates all social classes, in all aspects of life. And not just in the US.

Hogwarts! I would have picked the library planet, but as much as I love The Doctor, who wants to be watching out for flesh eating shadows when you're trying to read?

I saw a program on TV like that. Their interpretation was that the babies stared at the puppets they thought were doing something unacceptable, but preferred the kind puppets.
