« on: July 10, 2007, 12:01:47 AM »
Admin-

 ??? Ive got a question for you isn't it illegal to search in other peoples grabage is in a neighborhood. Because people through out social security numbers, credit cards etc. Ive once heard that searching though others people garbage cans is a federal law and that it is illegal.  ???



 ??? Just a question. ???


admin edit: I changed subject to something more useful than 'hey admin'

Theres a difference between asking if you can have an old pieces of electronics they throw out and sneaking up and searching through there garbage bin during the night.

Yeah but i meant was sneaking to take them without asking. I know that asking is legal way to search in the garbage.

No but apart from movies. Movies are fictional to the real world.

I saw something about that on TV... Alot of stores here apparently have dumpsters with compressors, that have some kind of sealing system... Kind of impractical to search through...

If I knew it wasn't illegal, and I found a good spot that I could see was full of electrical goodies, Yeah!
