If you ever wondered...
If it was worth it to cut up the rings that hold sixpacks together, here's your answer.

Holy CRAP. Every time I do that I wonder to myself if it's pointless. Wow.

Awww man that guy must have had that thing on for a while. Do turtle ever completely lose there shell or does it just expand and add to itself? I wonder if it will ever reshape back to normal.

The shells just keep growing. I don't know if that one will ever be right.

I always cut mine. If I see an offending uncut one, I'll take it and cut it up. I hate to think about all those uncut death traps floating around the ocean.

If anyone ever asks you why you bother, there are plenty of pictures to explain it.

I worry that by cutting it I make it look like a jellyfish which a lot of sea creatures consider good eating.

Plastic bags are a considerably greater threat for consumption. I'll keep cutting the rings, though lately I simply haven't been buying anything that uses them. FWIW, I also use re-usable shopping bags whenever I can.

How did you find this? It was posted five days before your response, and we don't have a single friend in common.

Plastic bags get used to dispose of used kitty litter here. We only get them when we forget the canvas bags. Have a HUGE garbage bag full of them.

You posted in guns about Irish organized crime from Schneier's blog. Decided to look to see if you were in NH and read the first page of your LJ before clicking on user-info. I read unixronin's Friends page for guns and motorcycles. May I just say OUCH! about the lost radiator coolant?

That makes sense. I read a number of communities but don't post in them often. That issue struck a cord because I am Irish on both sides if you go back far enough and I wrote a couple papers on Sinn Fein during my college years.
Fortunately, we were both so geared up that pain wasn't a factor in the coolant incident, though it certainly could have been in other circumstances.
