TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27TH., 2016
Lift you foot high. Then bring it down quickly! This
is September 27th. It's "Crush A Can Day."!
People crush cans for a number of reasons. For some it
relieves stress! They stomp on the can as a way of dealing
with the frustrations of the day.
I, on the other hand, do it for financial gain! I can get a lot
more cans into a garbage bag if they're crushed. More cans
equal more weight.
When I get a garbage bag full of crushed cans I take it to
the recycling center and trade them in for cash! It's better than
working! Last time I made nearly five bucks! If I only drank
more I could get rich! (Soda by the way!)
While the "holiday" itself surprised me I was just as stunned
to learn my method of flatting the aluminium is not the only way
to do it. And the other is rather impressive!
Here is the way it is described on one Web site:
1. Fill a large pot with three quarts of cold water.
2. Put one tablespoon of water into an empty aluminum soda can
and heat it on the stove until it boils.
3. Let it boil for 30 seconds and then carefully remove it with tongs.
4. Invert the can and quickly dip it in the pot of cold water.
The can will collapse immediately, impressing women,
captivating small children and frightening the family dog.
I may have to give this a try..although we don't have a family
dog. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
Anyhow, which ever method you decide to use, I encourage you
to celebrate by crushing all the cans you can find.
Hope they're empty...and that all your NEWS is good!
