    Quite the interesting idea if you ask me.

    Lets see what oozes out eventually.

    Sometimes I wonder about the junkyards all over the country. Would anyone go through them and take anything that's recycleable? That would reduce the yard a lot, I think.

    Probably the cost - benefit ratio is not worth it today. Oh well, we'll pay for that later.

    You never know. Ever so often here they bring up an old pre-WW2 shipwreck. The steel contains no Caesium since it wasn't in the atmosphere until nuclear testing started, so they can use it in sensitive medical instruments in a way steel rolled today can't be.

    So if things change in the coming years, there may be all sorts of niche stuff that would warrant looking through our old trash for.
