Well, no. Aside from owning a zillion cars and using the occasional power
tool, I'm actually a very good neighbor (meaning almost never seen or
heard) and I'm environmentally friendly. I recycle everything I can,
including motor oil, and I hold onto the stuff I should be able to recycle
but can't find a place to take. I currently have a stack of metal,
including Volvo brake rotors, that nobody wants. All of the shops I've
talked to say they just throw metal parts away. Aarrgghh! Some poor bozo
had to dig that stuff out of the ground! There's a limited supply! One of
these days, we're going to have to find bozos willing to mine that stuff
I just think it's funny when I have all of the characteristics someone is
complaining about and _I_ know I'm a good person. It makes me wonder if
_other_ people know :-0. I didn't mean to belittle your ex-neighbor
problems, especially since I'm having some myself. Just this morning, I
put up a plywood noise-break to cut down on the nighttime harassment from
the people behind me and I'm just about to order 12 trees that can be
planted right next to each other and will get 45' tall in three years.
That'll teach 'em to piss off the person who is due South of them and owns
the land right up to their house.
