(Mother Nature Network)   Instead of just throwing away your next bottle cap, why don't you turn it into an iPod speaker or glue it to your car?   (mnn.com) divider line 23

Because I'm not a hipster who finds quirky eye-catching shiat like that positive in any way.

\I'll stick getting my speakers on Amazon

My wife already does stuff with bottle caps, mostly turning them into magnets and keychains.

Why not take lil' metal bottle tops and nail them to your living room floor?

Land surveyors used to use them as reference markers in pavements or other hard surfaces by driving a nail through the center, sometimes adding a piece of survey flagging tape underneath and dayglow paint.

I think they now just use roofing felt caps ("shiners") from the hardware store or custom ordered discs with surveyor's license number stamped on them.

FFS. This kind of crap is why people who care about the environment aren't taken seriously. And I say this as the resident crunchy in my house and workplace.

Because I don't have an iPod or a car, subby. Cars pollute. I don't need a car. I have hiking shoes and a bicycle.

And the iPod?! Apple makes their stuff in Chinese factories using nearly slave-labour, out of poisonous, environmentally unfriendly materials. Apple is one of the worst polluters around.

Steam!? Steam is the result of fire, or combustion - like a car, that pollutes!
I use a combination of a bicycle generator and solar panelling, of course, like every moral human!

Because then there would be garbage glued to my car, and garbage glued to your car really hurts the bluebook value.

Nail them upside down to your living room floor.

Then you can have the sensation of walking on little metal bottle caps.

/+1 for the Flanders and Swann reference anyway
