Today, after I came home from Martial Arts training, I decided to take out the trash. When I got to one of the neighborhood's dumpsters, I unveiled about 5 boxes of what seemed to be untouched computer hardware and software. There was a rather large Half-Life 2 box, but unfortunately the game was not in it.

This is what I found in those boxes.

Computer Speakers x2
Logitech, and HP
Scanner x1 - Broken
Printer x1
Cord Phone x2
Palm Pilot - Broken
Lite-On DVD Burner x1 - ACTUALLY WORKS
DC Power Cords x5
Cell Phone x2 (2 old broken nokias)
Keyboard
Mouse x3 (none were better than my current)
Gameboy Color (split in half, no joke, does not work of course)
Routers x2 (Linksys)
Ethernet cords, phone lines, various other wires


I don't understand why a person would just come and take a huge hardware sh!t by the dumpster, it doesn't really matter either, I got the boxes, and starting messing with things.

Because they are mentally retarded?


Well in any case, congrats.

Are you sure he didn't dump them because they were disfunctional? Better be careful.

Yeah but even among the crap it seems there might be some good stuff. Especially if the ethernet cables work. If I found something like that I coulda saved myself $20 a month ago when I had to replace a broken one.

In any case you could see if those are repairable and then sell them afterwards. Free money, for the win!
