    Although I know nothing about Bikes. I did step into Bicycle Heaven near Pittsburgh this year. And it was crazy. Could not make heads or tails of anything, but that was quite an impressive collection.

    I collect alkaline batteries. True or False...alkaline battery recycling is not a thing and you should just dispose of them in the trash. What do you do with your alkaline used batteries? I literally just have a few ziplocks full of used batteries in a cabinet. I've been doing stuff like "throwing two away per trash bag" so as to "spread the impact out". I dunno. It's a problem.

    Your city (or some place nearby) should have an "environmental services" department - the trash collection people. Call them and ask if there's a place you can dump them. Where I live, there is a collection box where you throw whatever batteries, hazardous materials, paint, styrofoam, cardboard, etc into it and they take care of it. I just replaced a heavy lead battery in my alarm system that I need to take to my environmental services site. I'm not sure you're really spreading the impact out much since they all probably end up in the same city dump. lol.

    Kitchen gizmos and old guns. They're more of an accumulation than a purposeful collection though

    Apparently, that is acceptable.

    https://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/batteries.html

    Alkaline batteries (AA, AAA, C, D ) and any other battery types not mentioned here. Most of the heavy metal has been removed from alkaline batteries, so it is ok to dispose of them in your regular household garbage. 9V and 6V batteries should have their terminals taped, then sealed in a plastic bag before tossing them in the trash.

    Now I feel better…:)

    I'd love to visit that place. Been trying to justify a trip to see my niece in Pittsburgh just so I could drop by this place.

    My local Interstate Battery shop takes them along with all cell/auto/anything batteries for recycling.

    I now have every English language variant of Risk. Variant meaning Star Wars Risk, Walking Dead Risk, Castle Risk, etc. Some I had to ship from Europe, one from Australia. There’s even a Peaky Blinders Risk variant that I discovered. The most valuable is Risk Black Ops, which only had a 1,000 unit print run.

    I Will Wreck You at Risk.

    I'd like to find a better game, at some point, similar but better.

    @MadMax it absolutely invited. It's the end of the Max as we know it...and I feel fine



    I love the end of that video, the dog nows.

    You really won’t.

    Take a look at Twilight Imperium (4th edition) or War of the Ring (2nd edition)
