Dumpster Diving!

If you're visiting New York this August, you may have the chance to do a little dumpster diving. Literally. Pools made from dumpsters will be lined up on Park Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets. Each pool will be eight feet wide, five and a half feet deep, and twenty-two feet long. (Those are some big dumpsters.) There will even be lifeguards, changing rooms and portable showers!

I gotta say, this sounds pretty awesome. Though that particular stretch of street is literally the last place on earth that I'd want to be spotted in a bathing suit. (I used to work around there.)

I might just have to take the four or less hour drive to New York to do this. Although I have a perfectly fine pool at my house.

Yeah, I might not want to walk around NYC in a bathing suit. :P But the IDEA is great; who would have thought of dumpsters as swimming pools?

That's odd. :)
Has anyone heard of the chupacabras in Texas? Authorities killed two animals that some people say are the beasts that, according to legend kill goats and suck their blood. I think they look like hairless coyotes.

@ Kiki: If they've got 2 dead ones, have they figured out what they are yet? Then again, "authorities"...I'm thinking that scene in Indiana Jones with that warehouse full of mysterious objects...bureauocracies, sheesh.

About the dumpster diving--just whose bizarre, if hilarious, idea was this?

And knowing New York, no one will blink.

Speaking of New Yorkers not being wierded out by anything, I heard something about a woman being attacked and killed, in full daylight, on a busy street, and people were walking by and not helping? Sounds too awful to be true, but...?

I read the rest of the article and I honestly think that the whole thing about coveted and mysterious invitations given out to dumpster dive on a special blocked off street really should go into the next Kiki Strike.
