Or self-installed. Could be a rental and mounting the dish on the building isn't allowed. I see them all over like this one or worse. I'm guessing the equipment is pretty cheap and expendable. Once we found one new receiver in the box on the road that fell of the truck. We called the dish company to return it to them and they didn't even care about it.

Common practice with many companies like cable, telephone and dish installers is to lay the cable on the ground to be buried at a later date. Although this one must have been done by the home owner since the dish is not mounted on a pole, looks more like a temporary installation.

There is a very similar "temporary" installation at one of the apartments here that has been there for several months. In this case I believe the apartment management forbids hanging a dish on the building so it makes some sense. At least the one here is nestled close to some shrubs and isn't in the way of anything or in anyone's path but it has the cinder blocks holding it in place much like the pic shows. Whatever works I guess. Of course a neat and tidy installation is the best choice but tech hardware has become so cheap and expendable that none of this comes as a big surprise and people these days don't seem as concerned with doing things "right the 1st time" anyway.

our famous disposable society. when it's broke you toss it out and buy another one instead of trying to fix it. handjob

Disposable society is great for me. It allows mew to buy things for next to nothing fix them and resale them for sometimes more than double my money. I have gotten laptops for $10 and reformatted the hard drive, reinstalled OS and sold them for $200. I have gotten VCR's for $5 cleaned the heads with q-tip and alcohol and sold them for $30. These economic hard times are good also because people bring things to me for quick cash much like they do at pawn shops because I pay more than pawn shops do and sell them cheaper than Game Stop or Game Exchange. If you want to try this just don't try to make a killing on every deal and the deals you can make a killing at will come along.

i have 4 vacuum cleaners dug from the dumpster or equally goofy. all have had nothing more than broken belts. (*facepalm*)
$2 @ Home depot and bingo!
one was actually a $400 Dyson. it had a crack in the canister...silicone inside and out, and Bingo! sold it to a friends wife for $75 instead of holding out for $150. and the list goes on and on and on.

A friend of mine at the market dives dumpsters and picks stuff off the roadside people put out for trash men and sells the stuff. He has found all kinds of treasure including a working Xbox 360, laptops, desktops, wire welders, lawn mowers and even a generator that just needed a pump bulb.

i should clarify that dumpster diving is not what i do on a regular basis. i just see stuff left outside the area dumpsters and sometimes pick them up.

Nothing wrong with dumpster diving as long as it's legal in your area.

I know people have been at least cited for trespassing.

It's illegal here apparently, but you can get away with it.

I know someone that used to work at pizza hut, their dumpsters almost always have perfectly good, in the box, still warm pizzas in them...over twenty years he's gleaned countless pizzas from several different locations.
I've known a couple other 'divers' over the years too and have heard of their 'scores' similar to those already mentioned...while I can't recall ever pulling anything worthwhile from the dumpster, I can say that I've thrown away alot of perfectly good stuff that really should have been donated to charity but I was young and didn't give a fuck about anything...

years ago I lived in an apartment next door to a cute thirty-something milf, our doors were just a few feet (a meter) apart, one time we both opened our doors at the exact same moment, both headed for the dumpster with our bags of trash, I thought to offer to just take hers with me on my way but chose to have a couple minutes to chat while we walked together instead, I know, how romantic right? ya gotta seize these she and I and her two year old son get to the dumpsters and throw in our shit and the kid says, OH! he bends down and picks up a used condom and tries to throw it away...all I could do was laugh..

I don't care how good it looks, I still can't do it...if it's been in the trash, it's trash spinning
smiley sticking its tongue out
and in the trash there's used condoms...thumbs up

When I lived in Corvallis (OSU town) some of the folks I knew would go wild at the end of the school year because the college kids leaving for the summer would pile up all kinds of stuff around the dumpsters like furniture, beds TVs, stereos, little refrigerators, just about anything you could imagine being in a dorm or student apartment.

We have a big christian university here and it is getting to be time for school to be out so my friend is preparing. Mommy and daddy buy these kids everything for their dorm room and when school is out most everything goes in the dumpsters because mommy and daddy will replace it next year computers and laptops included. Seems like christian universities are the worst for this practice, they throw out everything except their drugs.
