Dumpster


Lars Eighner writes about his life as a homless person and his struggles to make a decent
living at it. This consists in what he so properly calls "Dumpster diving". His essay
depicts the variety of useful objects one can find in a dumpster as well as helpful hints
on carefully selecting edibles. He goes on to also warn the reader on the potential health
hazards that can be encountered

while being a professional Dumpster diver.


As far as his ideas are concerned...I cannot say I am in complete accord with this form of
lifestyle, but then again, who chooses to be homless? Although I must admit that living
off the waste of others is possible and not completely intangible to everyone in this
world. His form of

writting seems quite calm, simple and surprisingly well expressed for a person who one may
unjustfully label as uneducated. The vocabulary used is common enough for almost anybody to
understand without the aid of a dictionary. From reading this, it seems that anyone can be
homeless and live from the mercy of other people's trash.

  • Sexuality and Television
    Sexuality and Television After viewing only a few hours of television I asked myself, “How is it that people can spend as many as 20 hours watching television per week?” A whole day wasted, and what has come out of it? More garbage that will further distort any real comprehension held about what it means to be a male or a female. What it means to be male or female in the American culture cannot be defined with simple words, but yet can be easily distorted when viewing any commercial on televisi

    adventures of pop and rock fashion THE 50S In the early 1950s, at exactly the time that the teenage Elvis Presley was making the first forays into clothes and music in Memphis, disaffected post war youths of Great Britain were granted the less colourful set of options. The homegrown pop music scene was still dominated by the big bands and dance halls, which had sprung up after the war. More excitement was generated by the far more stylish imported American acts such as Johnny Ray, Frank Sinatra
