google is your friend. :]


We pressed on. Shortly afterwards, we arrived in a poisonous, post-apocalyptic hell - a sprawling, toxic dumping ground stretching for a mile or two. This is the final resting place for your old TV, computer or mobile phone.

Anything I don't know, my first instinct is google it, or wikipedia it. I'll only ask if rephrasing 5 different times, and searching through about 10 pages of results for each doesn't answer my question (or i get lazy).
This is going in my sig. :)

Oh, good, it wasn't just me. I thought my mind was starting to leak memes of it's own will.
