    there's probably like 2 bombers there of 10% + stuff, most of it is 5-7% six packs.

    They don't do recycle pick-up where you live? It's like garbage pick-up, you just have to pay a little extra. By the amouth of bottles and cans you have, it might be worth it. HELP THE PLANET!

    No recycle pickup, don't live in-town.
    I do take the 6 mile trip to the recycling center myself though. I take my cans to a different place where I get some money for them(granted very little).

    Damn some of you are being harsh. Everyone lives differently you judgmental naive people. I'm one of the tidiest people I know and when my four 6 packs get full I take the case and dump it in the recycling and repeat but if there is nothing to contribute to a thread than to bash a dude because he has different habits than you and claim alcoholism (which is absurd based on a picture, youre on a fucking beer website dont forget), and hoarding which you can clearly see is not the case, than I feel sad you live your life in such a negative mindset. You're all so perfect huh! Anyways..

    I feel like it's a sliding scale. On one side is alcoholic and the other is hoarder. If he drank all this in a month, has problem is with alcohol. If it's 5 years worth, the problem is with hoarding. Probably somewhere in between.

    The real focus should be on what has been obscured in the first picture with what looks like MS Paint.

    Why are your cans still in their 6-pack holders? Are you sucking those things dry using a straw?! I think there is a problem of some sort here that needs to be defined and corrected.

    I noticed some silkscreened bombers in your collection. BM me if you still have them. We might be able to work out a deal in which I could take those off your hands.

    Ha! This is great. If it makes you feel any better, I do hoard any bottle that works well with my bottle capper. Meaning I have 13+ cases of 12oz bottles, and 28+ empty 22oz bottles for homebrewing. My LHBS will sometimes give $10 store credit for a case of clean/unlabeled bottles.

    Once I painted a door black, had class cut to fit, and set it up as a desktop and put old postcards under the glass. But beer labels would work, with the black background. The six-pack cardboard is so 3-dimensional-- but I guess flattened they would make excellent pinups for garage or brew room. I was at Modern Times in SD and they use old encyclopedia pages with nice engravings for their wallpaper.

    Yea man I was thinking something like that, but I ended up using bottles caps I have doing my first real DIY project and came out with this after I moved to SD a couple months ago. Cut the middle out and stained to match my 4 stand-up speakers. I was thinking maybe labels underneath the caps, but there's really not much room to see anything and would just clutter it up I think.

    I keep pulling this thread back up just to look at the picture. It's awesome. It's like what a picture of beer storage would look like on Ridiculousness or something.

    You can usually tell how miserable certain people are by the way they put other people down over the internet. Almost like they are offended this guy had the audacity to post these pictures. I do agree that the fact he hasn't rinsed those bottles out are kinda nasty, but who am I to judge how someone else lives their life.
