    Standing in Skips

    May sound trite but for newbies watch out standing in any sort of skip or dumpster
    with soft soled footwear.
    Have twice been up casualty for tet jabs after rust nail jabbed foot!
    Also take great care pulling out anything stretchy-thecatapault effect to face.
    couple a misses with bungee cord hooks

    Always wear boots. Just like a trades job. You dont show up to do mason work with patio boots aka flip flops

    I dived into one dumpster i had got some good stuff from. And found a few 1/2 gallon plastic containers with liquid in them.
    I took the cap off a few to sniff whats inside it & none were proper solvents so i left them there.

    The next day i was back inside it, but during daylight and i pick up the container to read its label, and it reads...

    [ Hydrofluoric Acid ]

    Yeah. Be carefull.
