Since countless tires are stored outdoors, rainwater & snowmelt gathers
in tires; providing a breeding-ground for mosquitoes. Furthermore, it
is difficult to empty tires of water.
One solution to discard water from tires is to cut-off the sidewalls of
tires; which can be done with basic knives available at any
hardware/home improvement stores.
Since the sidewalls of tires do not contain steel belts, companies that
buy recycled rubber may also find sidewalls valuable since Nylon is far
simpler to deal with than steel-belts.
Recycling programs that buy-back the sidewalls of tires from the
public, as well as scrap-tire handlers are excellent incentives in
spurring both tire-recycling and mosquito abatement efforts.

THE FACTS OF LIFE AS IT PERTAINS TO USENET
1. Usenet was created to bridge distance and promote discussion. As
such, it can be thought of as a network of bridges.
2. There are people who live underneath these bridges - they are called
3. Trolls believe that their message or presence is important enough
that you MUST know about it. Hence, they crosspost to any group they
have the slightest interest in.
4. Acknowledging a troll in any form is only rewarding his behavior.
Tell him to stop doing something, and he will only do it twice as much.
5. Do not feed the trolls. If you don't want to talk about a subject,
ignore it. As the saying goes, all things will pass.
6. If you have a killfile and choose not to use it, then you have
nobody to blame but yourself.
7. If you tell someone to "respond accordingly", fully expect at least
one person out there to define "accordingly" as posting detailed
descriptions of what you can do with your garden vegetables, and which
orifices you can use in the process.
You now know the facts of life. Go forth my child, and use Usenet
I was addressing my response to a few of the first replys to the
orignial post; that deviated away from the focus of the original post
(most of us in these newsgroups don't want thoughtless, off-topic
posts). I thank the people who posted a couple of thoughtful responses
to the orignial post.
Sorry that my previous response to "respond accordingly" was
misconstrued! "And yes, I apologize to the people in the rec.gardens
group for putting them though all of this crap!"
Like the adage goes "If one doesn't have anything important to say,
then don't say anything at all!" "Talk about the facts of life as it
pertains to newsgroups."
