I do this exact same thing.

Except I carry the jars in fur-lined asbestos bags and, when I'm done with them, I smash the jars on the rocks by the creek in the nearby wildlife sanctuary where I also make wind sculptures out of the plastic rings that hold six packs together and I snag birds by hanging the sculptures from trees that I periodically slash and burn using uranium-infused kerosene that I manufacture by hard-pressing vegans' souls in a device made from the bones of bald eagles, which I catch in webs made from dolphins' veins when I'm in my boat that has a hull carved from redwood and sails made from American Indians' skins.

Is this some kind of annoying performance art?

Glass jars for meat? Amateur! I find that I waste less by just coaxing my meat animals into the house where I strap them down and keep them alive while I slowly eat them over the course of a week.

kwirlkarphys: thank god.  i buy everything disposable and probably use about 4-5 bins per week worth of trash.  it's great to know that there are hippies out there working to offset my waste usage.  I've made 11 amazon purchases this week, and I go out of my way to order them one at a time so that there are extra shipping materials used.  someone, somewhere, is making a living producing these packaging materials, and it helps knowing that my binge shopping is creating jobs that these environuts are trying to destroy.  I like how the above comment started in one direction, and ended up somewhere else.  I wrote the damn thing and can't make sense of it.  I'm going back to bed.


Ambien.  Not even once.

And then you have to heat a bunch of water and then contaminate that water with soap and detritus to prepare your earth saving container for reuse.  Carry that stuff home in your bare hands if you want to be all green about it.

I know this is slightly off topic, but my great grandfather was a farmer in Matchedash township, near Coldwater, Ontario. I remember my grandmother telling me they never ever wasted any type of foods. What they didn't eat, or went over or was left over all went to the pigs. The pigs were the compost pile in those days.


My point, is we should just buy some pigs...or something. F*ck, I forget the point.

Oh. My. God.  I thought the extreme couponers were annoying.  If this catches on, someone will die.  Horribly.

American grocers are legally required to label all meat products, and have to meet certain packaging requirements. The standards actually got even stricter this year. If you buy your meat off the back of a truck in a dark alley, I'm sure this would work.
