If by glass you mean meth, then sure.

Yogimus: "Glass dust"... pardon me, but isn't that called "sand"?


No. Sand has a crystalline structure, but glass is amorphous.

The_Homeless_Guy: Ivo Shandor: [...] glass dust, which they believe blows over from the Strategic Materials glass recycling plant next door, is making them sick.

Shouldn't a recycling plant be, um, recycling the glass into new products instead of just dumping it in huge piles? Seems that even filling a sinkhole or dumping it on a hurricane-eroded beach would be better than their current plan.

The problem with recycling glass is that turning back into bottles is dumb, it takes just as much energy as it would to melt sand into new glass. About the only use for recycled glass is as a filler in other substances where you don't actually remelt the glass down. For example, recycled glass countertops and whatnot. It's not like aluminum where traditional recycling actually makes sense.


I would argue that it takes less energy to recycle glass, because you don't have to mine any raw materials.  Recycling also keeps it from filling up landfills.  Glass can be recycled infinitely without slowly degrading over time, why wouldn't you take advantage of that?

You're just homeless and pissed off at the fact that it's a lot easier and more profitable to pick up soda cans on the side of the road than glass bottles.


My car has about $5 worth of glass beer bottles in the back, waiting for a nice day when I have time to haul them to a redemption center. I honestly don't know what they do with those but I like to think maybe at least some craft brewers buy them to refill. Plus I can buy more beer :D

first thing I thought of....... does that make me a bad person?

Holy shiat!  Those tits must be older than she is!

Given who that is ... well, I probably shouldn't go there, or even admit that I know who that is, at least when that picture was taken.


I used to know what her name was. Anyone care to refresh my mammary? Memory!

Am I the only old stoner who read that as mountains of GRASS?

Well, that explains why no one from Florida can locate a glass when they need one.
