I am convinced that one day soon a scientist will come up with a way to turn garbage into fuel. Then landfills will become the new oil fields, and we'll all have a good laugh at those numbnuts...

If what #Debi says comes true do y' reckon the council will pay us to let them take away our rubbish? Whatever they do you can be sure the politicians will find a way to tax us on it - 3 times, and make out its for our own good. Bob.
