Fuck, it was bin night on Monday and I was going to post something funny about it and forgot.
In Germany real binnists spare no expense to protect their bins from thieves, or worse: rain.
In Germany, you can tell how important bin culture is by Thier use of the word 'bin'.
'Ich bin' literally means 'I use a bin and therefore exist'
Radio 3 just gave a shout out to Bin day (one of the listeners) - 1017 (Tues am)
Bins due out tonight. Grey and very, very full. Almost unbearable tension.
Last night my wife put the bins out, but bin night is Wednesday. I'm just so embarrassed. Who have I married?
in some ways that's a re but in many other ways it's not been posted enough times
I bin therefore I am.
ironically, it is we english speakers who have the cumbersome and wordy construction to express such a beautifully simple concept
Why is that ironic? Because you once again think you are the center of something? Is the English language supposed to be the language of bin culture? Self-important pricks, the lot of you.
no, because german has the long words. long, long words. so many of them.
you're an english speaker anyway, you're up to your ears in this
I know right. And we beat all around the houses (mixing metaphors!) when they have it stated so simply
Perhaps some Thread t-shirts in the offing?
Up to my belly button, at best Wurst.
Yes, perfect to go with the PBAS hats, the LFGSS Summer Cap, and the "Cycling in the time of Corona" snoods & facemasks.
Something like 'Ich Bin: LFGSS Bin Owners Club'.
Although has that point been covered? Do we own our bins or merely look after it for the next generation?
I had a nightmare last night. Dreamt the lorry came early and my bins were missed. The worst bit was looking everywhere on the street for my bins which I thought had been stolen before I realised they were still in my back garden.
I filled the brown bin with soil and rubble this week, unaware that they’re not meant to take that. Bin weighed half a ton.
They took it anyway. Legends.
nietzsche famously asked: "whither Binnkultur?"
yet are the last two posts not a resounding confirmation of the existence (and indeed existing-ness) of Jung's Abfallmensh?
the bin persists, truly in and of itself, while bin night is just one of an infinite number of bin states that simultaneously are, and are not
Blimey, not far from me.
Some kids sometimes take a blue paper bin from our road and burn it in the nearby woods. This is much worse than that.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
