QotD: "NZ does not really have landfill sites. It has storage sites for future recycling."

  1. Crampton is always right, except he banned me over language. Anyway I was onto it before him.
    I have sent the following proposal to the PM of Thailand.
    >> General, the garbage Bangkok Post says each Thai makes 1kg of junk per day. That's 65 million X 365 X 10 = 250 million tons. I can put all that Thai junk in a 250,000 cu metre compound. This is 5 km square by 10 metres deep. Assumes junk is 1 gram per cc.
    Now General, Thailand also pulls in all the computer and cell phone waste from everywhere and Bangkok idiot Post is crying. They blame you. News outlets should be controlled by yourself General.
    The minerals in the computer junk is worth a fortune in ten years,
    a fortune. Leave me in charge of it all. I'm good at junk. .
    By the way, If you put me in charge of the Army, I can hold Yala, Narathiwat and Songhklia for you. If it goes wrong you can blame me. Malaysia is not going to like it.
