Well... Kent Sharkey! Praise be upon you.
My favorite so far is (I star the ones I like in my inbox):
Wikileaks founder Assange reveals his next target: Google Free information gets its latest teaser trailer.
If Kent Sharkey does visit upon this thread, tell me sir, do you write the serious line followed by the funny line? Or do you do all the serious lines first and then a day later add the funny line? I want to know....
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I'd suggest concentrating on the middlemen whose forged documentation lets them pose as responsible recyclers to buy ewaste from places where there is a mandate to safely dispose of it and who then smuggle it to the 3rd world to create an environmental catastrophe. Increasing the number of places with requirements to safely dispose of it won't do any good when its impossible for the companies collecting it from consumers to be sure that the people they sell it to aren't crooks.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Wish I could find the article I read a few years back but even electronic recycling programs are not always what they seem.
Long story short, company charges you to take your e-waste, tells you it will be recycled responsibly, loads them into shipping containers, dumps them in poor areas and then buy the scavenged raw materials for cheap. In the end they make profit on both sides of the process with no real 'recycling' going on at all.
