So you go to the dump, and come back with stuff

Your friend was bullshitting you. Not that I'd know much about these sort of things but...
Everybody knows @nal Cum Sluts only went up to 5 releases - not 7.
The young folks nowadays have all the porn they could ever ask for on the internet, not like when I was a young man and had to have the integrity to walk up to the counter-jumper in a seedy little video store that had a red "XXX" neon sign in the window, and say "I'm looking for 'All Tit-******* Ass-worshipping rimjobbers" with a straight face.
 
You seem to be forgetting the two braille versions.
~Little known fact: Sir Ronald of Jeremy can read braille, and once rubbed his hand across Stephanie Swift's arse.

Although the makeup dept did a good job hiding them, The small spots and pimples quite clearly said 'Facial finish'.

Or, proudly march into the naafi and order a Razzle and multipack of bogroll.

It was so much easier buying the 3 packs of Private, from the German sex shop. 1 with big minge perms, 1 with weirdish porn and 1 normal. Perfect for the plate pocket on the front of your CBA
 
You have to chuck your stuff into bins that the staff look after like hawks. No chance to nick anything
That's also what our tip is like and the staff are like ******* nazis and don't miss a thing. Amazingly, the signs say that stuff should be in bin bags but once you've lobbed it in they rip the bags open with a long pole so as to check you've not dumped any contraband. ******* Council Nazis, the lot of em.
 
The new lot of this country (bbc4) has one of the lead players getting a tip police job then getting sacked for skip diving

In my friend's case back in the 90s, he wasn't so lucky. His face was a picture as he took the phone call from the video rental place as the girl on the end of the line said that he had accidentally returned "a personal video tape". He lost his prized cassette of **** Cum Sluts 7 as he refused to go and ask for the tape back and wouldn't show his face there for weeks.
Imagine my surprise a few years ago when I went to rent A Bridge Too Far and ended up with a video of some hairy arsed bloke doing a bird up the bum

He may have been mistaken and confused A nal Cum Sluts 5 with A nal creampie compilation 7.
 
Field Marshal Model:
What can you see?

General Ludwig:
Nothing. But they're going to do it up the bum.

Field Marshal Model:
It will fail.

General Ludwig:
Of course. But what do we do if it doesn't
 
Brigadier General Gavin:
What's the best way to take a slapper?

Maj. Julian Cook:
Both ends at once.

Brigadier General Gavin:
I'm sending two lads across the city by taxi. I need a man with very special qualities to lead.

Maj. Julian Cook:
Go on, sir.

Brigadier General Gavin:
He's got to be tough enough to do it and he's got to be experienced enough to do it. Plus one more thing. He's got to be dumb enough to do it... Start getting ready.

Maj. Julian Cook:
Well someone's come up with a real nightmare. Real nightmare

Worse than that.Small village in Powys.”I would like a copy of Private Eye please” Stern old biddy behind the counter told me “We don’t sell those sort of magazines here”

I've been upselling from car boots for some years.

I'm currently out of work thanks to the IR35 law changes, so it is now my only source of income.

Notwithstanding the time it takes, I generally average 5x - 10x return on what I pay. But I have also sold things I've bought for £1 - £5 for hundreds (zeiss binos, 60s guitar pedal etc)

Most of the charity shops are now very switched on to the value of stuff (which is a good thing in my book), but it does make me smile to see customers browsing with one hand whilst the other is checking eBay for the value of the items.

Last week I went to the big indoor Car Boot at Stoneleigh nr Cov. It was a 4am start for me but the storms had put off a lot of the usual 'competition' and I spent £180 in 20 minutes before heading home.

£100 of that was on a diagnostic machine for HGV/Commercials. It is missing a few bits but identical models are over £8k new.

A similar one went at auction for £1600 last year. If I can get even half of that, it'll help keep our head above water for a little longer until some work pops up.

The local tip near my late parents' home was run by a franchise. They had a healthy attitude to selling stuff that might be of use to new owners - I got a fire surround for £5 - but lost their contract as a result. It is now council-run and clearly much more corrupt in terms of taking anything of value secret stashes to be collected by local traders.

The scrap metal skip always makes my eyes water to see what people are binning. Without fail, I always see vintage Record or Marples vices which are worth a fair amount.

Good for you mate. Hope a decent job turns up for you soon.
 
That reminded me of a former colleague who had been a crab at one of the RAF stations that was being closed down. They spent weeks packing up stuff for shipping on to somewhere, and then it was a case of waiting for their posting notice.

One morning around 11 there was a tannoy message along the lines of "This is the MT officer, I have just completed the task of scrapping all of the tools from the MT workshop. All personnel are to stay away from the three skips which are situated round the back of the MT yard until the local scrap merchant has emptied them. The local scrap merchant will be arriving at 15:00. End of broadcast..."

Needless to say every man and his dog descended on the back of the MT yard and hauled out anything useful, my colleague still had several tools in his kit that had crows feet on....
Knew A Zimbabwean years ago , REME . His dad still had a garage in Harare. When any of the tools broke, were written off . He was over them like a tramp on hot chips.
Just sent them back , dad would or boy would weld, fix bodge them back to working order.
 
Have you come across the postie bike challenge? This years is from Brisbane to Darwin. I’d imagine there’s a fair amount of piss sunk on the way!
Heard about that, would love to get my bucket of bolts out on the road to do some travelling. It's doing well as a farm bike though.

We are both an incredibly wasteful society and one that has no appreciation of it's past . I have come across all sorts of memorabilia and valuable artefacts , including a Battle of Britain pilot's log book plus other mementoes ( I tracked down relatives and gave it to them ) and quite valuable Turkish and Afghan carpets .
I thoroughly recommend you try it .
My wife’s grandfather dumped his RAF log book a few years ago. He was a sneaky beaky type and wouldn’t even say what Sqn he was on. He mentioned 100 Group and he used to fly Wellingtons, being shot down over France in one after D Day. We know the type of work he did during and after the war and his log would have been of great interest.
