A question about proper disposal of unwanted items with an unhelpful answer

Raymond Chen

On an internal mailing list about home maintenance and ownership, somebody asked:

I have a handful of items that I need to get rid of and probably should not toss into the regular garbage. Any thoughts?

  • Older TV — 32″
  • Propane tanks (full)
  • Lighter fluid
  • Carpet glue adhesive
  • Lawn fertilizer

The best reply was an unhelpful one.

You’ve pretty much got all the components you need to build a bomb. Why dispose of them?
