    Riding in total urban chaos.
    Nothing captures it more than the annual Uhaulakaust of Aug 31/Sept 1.
    Boston traffic, drivers, tourists, roads, AT ITS WORST.

    Embrace the doom.
    Ride, head strong, into the black Sunset of despair, freshmen, and Uhauls.
    Fuck Boston Strong. This is Boston Fixed.

    Anyone want to tour the mover's wastelands at some point on Sat or Sun afternoon?
    Demon masks/face painting highly encouraged.
    Wear black. Drink sin. Ride with the devil.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I've got a old-lady pushcart for groceries and other assorted items. Despite having a semi-broken non-weight bearing wheel , it would be perfect for the ultimate uhauloakaust scavenging tool. No more will you be bothered with the intense decision on what carry home when your arms become full, just take it all and ask questions later.

    Thought about even trying to make it into some sort of bike trailer.

    whisper if you want it.

    Allston Christmas is Sept 1, when BC/BU/NEU/ETC students move out of their apartments. They typically put a ton of shit on the curb that they haven't sold or given away. probably because it is too nice to throw right out into the dumpster or dumpsters are full. Some people go around collecting furniture and other junk that can be re-used or sold to scrap dealers, pawn shops, and craigslist. It's one of the worst days to be in Boston because traffic is crazy, people park illegally, and it's generally pretty chaotic. When I say traffic, I mean like 3 hours to move 1mi down Comm Ave traffic. It's quite a scene."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    It's people saying they should get together and roam around Allston on bikes, on Saturday or Sunday, looking at the ridiculousness of Sept 1 move-in and possibly wear dead animal skins and casting satanic spells in Juggalo facepaint.

    ETA: OtherBen's description is also valid. But very jewy.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    Ok, so I had the right idea for the most part. Minus the bit about riding around in animal skins and such. Hopefully I have staff available, so I can check this mess out. Thanks for the info.

    6kidz:Allston Christmas is Sept 1, when BC/BU/NEU/ETC students...

    It's not just students (but mostly), but anyone who has to move, as the vast majority of leases in Boston run on the Aug 31/Sept 1 cycle. Add to this a few over sized vehicles stuck on Storrow Dr, and a Red Sox game, and shit just gets CRAZY. It actually won't be AS BAD this year because it falls on a weekend, so all the Mon-Fri work commuters are removed from the equation.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    Metal, Dave. People sell scavenged metal to scrap dealers because you can get a decent amount per pound depending on what it is. That's why every abandoned house in Detroit is stripped clean of pipes. That's why dudes in trucks did rounds around LI after the hurricane. Copper's over $3 per pound right now. Brass is a buck fifty. No clue how much sheet metal is going for, but appliances go by the pound.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    He never said he did any of this, you no-reading-comprehension-having jagoff.
    And if you do the rounds you probably could get enough scrap to make it worth your while. It depends on what your time is worth to you. Some people collect cans for 5 cents a pop, bruh.
    Sure, Ben talks out of his ass sometimes but this time he was right and you got called out so just take it like a man and shut the fuck up.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    Davis, you don't know what you're talking about. I know you think you're the only person here who has studied environmental science, but you ain't.

    Have you never seen the guys who drive around Boston and Cambridge with shitty pick-up trucks full of junk metal? It's all melted and recycled for $$$. I see people driving around Boston all the time with broken bed frames, 40lb magna mtbs, refridgerators, fixtures, anything that's heavy but not sitting in poured concrete. When I was working in green building administration, I would routinely see guys smuggling supplies off the job site, like trucks full of new rebar and sometimes construction waste. I thin it's fair to presume this was not excess for personal use.

    Also, no one collects wood, except your mother."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    AND YESSSSS

    i have dealt with scrappers before at neighborhood bike works. but i'm just saying, unless people are snatching that shit up fast, i have not seen scrappable junk on the sidewalk. it's all bed-bugged furniture, vhs sex tapes of your mom, lps of your mom's o-face, 8-traxxx of your mom's open source bj sounds, and cd-r's of your mom's best bone gifs.

    I DON'T SEE WHAT THIS HAS TO DO WITH ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE. I'M NOT A SCIENTIST. I'M JUST AN ANAL-IST.
