Nice Job! Can I have your old one??

Brought back memories of "Gomie Picking" in Japan. It is almost a national sport. The night before trash pick up you wander the neighborhood, looking at what your neighbors have set out for the next day.

I just about furnished my apartment that way (sofa, CD player, phone etc) and I was not the only one doing it. And most of us were NOT Gaijin.
