    I took an old box out of the closet this AM looking for an extension cord and thought I'd take a minute and clean it out while I was in there.

    Seems I had some items in there that are ancient, antiquated and absolute junk.

    Some of that I do not even know what it's original purpose was. The odd shaped silver thing was, I think, an antenna I used on a laptop from 2006 that had a TV in it or some such thing.

    I'll probably bring that stuff down the Hospice Thrift store and see if he wants it; if not I guess it is trash.

    The laptops I'll destroy as I am sure there is proprietary information on them.

    One does not turn on anymore and the other one turns on and just sits with a black screen.

    And I am good at destroying them; we should open a business and call it, "Laptops, We Repair and Destroy Them!"

    I believe it is called berber carpet but I'm not entirely sure. It was here when we bought the place and my wife likes it so it will be here for some time which is great because I'm cheap.

    I had my repair shop for 2 years, i fixed electronics. Most ungrateful job ever. You have to know everything but still cant charge much. Trend of consumer electronic prices declining kinda made it bad business model.

    Stress release shop where people can destroy things with baseball bat on other hand was my dream. I've seen it exist several years ago. I actually did break few things out of anger . I can say that destroying keyboard with overhead smash was best thing ever. 100 keys just splashing everywhere

    A few months ago, I took some of my old, but working electronic stuff down to Goodwill. The woman told me it was trash, and said that if I wouldn't give it to a relative, I shouldn't give it to Goodwill.

    I told her that I would give it to my relatives, and that my relatives would take it; therefore Goodwill should accept it. She thought I was being a smart alec, but I was serious; they like old computers components.

    Aw that's too bad. I was looking for a nice wireless keyboard to do some writing while sitting on my couch that is a few feet away from my PC.
