    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years already.

    In larger quantities, you get paid for it up here. It's still oil, it has value.

    Back in the farmer days I'm surprised anyone would bother to dig a hole and fill it with gravel.... it's OIL... it burns. Squirt it in the fireplace or the furnace tank or save it for camping. Dump it in a paint can, set it on the driveway and let it burn like a candle.

    All depends on the use. Explosives can be fun, and they can be deadly.

    Some of the large farms in the area are recycling theirs in waste oil burners. So the risk of contamination can be alleviated since they are the persons dumping it. For the average person a waste oil burner isn't practical, but if you have a large quantity it can be. Jarrell

    He showed me pics of his new house and property and I was wondering what all those bare patches in his lawn with gravel in them were all about........

    How that dude at work taking the news of the election results in VA?

    We can get rid of oil the first Saturday of the month at the old landfill site in town. They are very picky and only want oil. Same issue of getting mixed stuff and having to pay to get rid of it. Auto part stores and Walmart take it also. Anti-freeze, brake fluid, transmission oil are a problem. There is a once-a-year hazardous waste pickup day in the next town but we always seem to miss it. So that stuff is starting to build up. Then there is the ten gallons of gas that I drained from the Manta gas tank five years ago. I guess I should try to burn it in the lawn mower but I don't want to screw it up.

    He's an idiot, a former best friend. He's moving away from Jersey where all the people he knows are to move to nowhere in Virginia where he doesn't know anybody and they hate northerners. Dumbass.

    Haters in Virginia

    We should clear this up, from my viewpoint anyway, where I live in Virginia a large part of the population is retired military who have lived all over the US and the world and I don't think all of them are Dumb-asses but they chose Virginia as their place to retire, and a lot to them came here from the north. My daughter-in-law is from JERSEY (shore) and I love her dearly, granted she has been here long enough that she is re-programed, and I have several other friends that began life north of the Mason-Dixon line. I came here in the military originally from the mid-west and liked it well enough to spend the rest of my life here, so.......my vote is, if you are going to be a dumb-ass and do dumb-ass things no matter where you come from some people are going to treat you accordingly. We had a saying on the Police Department (when you got promoted to Sergeant or above you had a gold badge) that if you put gold on a person and there was any mental problems in their family it would come out in 30 days
