People always tell me to keep my chin up. But if I do that, how am I supposed to find all the loose change on the sidewalk? (Sometimes this approach also helps when I’m out of chewing gum. It also helps prevent the soiling of my Turd Magnet cross trainers.)

I do that too. For the lucky change (not cause I'm poor.) I used to recycle cans that people pitched alongside the roads when they had a machine for it at the grocery store. And I counted that as lucky change as well.

Why did they get rid of all the aluminum can drop offs? It makes me sad to think that we are recycling even less now than in the 1980s.

When I was in Hungary, they had places to recycle bottles and cans for money. In New Zealand they took just about every variety of plastic in the curbside pickup, and yet my city only takes #1 and #2 plastics. When I complained about it, they said it wasn't economically viable.

How is it viable in a nation that only has 3.5 million people in the middle of nowhere, but not viable in a city of 1.5 million in the world's most powerful---blah, blah, blah?

What an incredible crock of shit, eh?
