Last Post on here – See for More

I think it’s about time I stopped duplicating material on here. It’s seems that there is a good chance the duplicate material hurts my Search Engine rankings, so for now for more of me and my blogging, please see THE FATTY TALKS (.com)



Recycle Your Electronics in Manhattan September 9th through NYCWasteLess

(Copied and pasted from my environmental blog: The Fatty Cares) 

Recycle Your Electronics

If not donating unwanted electronics for reuse, drop off your unwanted or broken electronics for recycling. Only the following items will be accepted:

  • electr-icons-orange-200 computers & laptops
  • monitors
  • printers & scanners (desktop only) 
  • keyboards & mice
  • TVs
  • VCRs & DVD players
  • cell phones

Other kinds of electronics won’t be accepted. Only NYC residents (no businesses allowed*) may drop off material (limit five pieces per vehicle). The first 100 people to drop off electronics will receive a $5 Best Buy gift card.

All dropped off items will be recycled through contracted vendors and all data on hard drives will be destroyed; no scavenging will be permitted and no tax-deduction receipts will be given out.

While safe to use, electronics contain hazardous materials, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. Recycling your unwanted electronic equipment keeps these hazardous materials out of the waste stream and the environment.

Sunday, September 9, 2007
8am – 2pm
Union Square North Plaza (southeast corner of 17th St. and Broadway; cars enter at 16th St & Union Square West).

An FYI About my Postings

Just so everybody knows I am all about being a fair and balanced Blogger when it comes to advertising/pushing/social-bookmarking/diggin/etc… I haven’t and will never submit Non-Original Material postings to anywhere. Ever. I only submit my Original Material posts to Stumble Upon, Digg, Reddit, etc. Also, I will always include the proper link-back.

So, enjoy all that is The Fatty Talks!

Announcing The Fatty Cares

I have created a Spin Off of The Fatty Talks (.com) that will focus primarily on the environment called The Fatty Cares (.com). As the environment is an important issue with me and should be for everyone else. This is from my first post, an Introduction:

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out the implications. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that these changes are already happening. It doesn’t take a genius to look at the Climactic changes of the past millions of years and realize that while we are in the most unstable era of our time, the temperature increase is happening at an ‘alarming’ rate.

So, this blog will be a record of:

  1. Proof of the Global Climate Change Phenomena
  2. Proof that there are People out there trying to Stop this and/or make a difference
  3. Proof that there are People and Governments out there who don’t care

Once again, thanks to Josh for the Logo Header Design:
