I seem to have amassed quite a collection of them lately...

Should I just pitch them in the recycle bin, or are there good uses for them?

Plant them in people's offices you don't like.

Stand back and watch the hilarity unfold.

Video the event and you will soon go "viral".

ditto. Lots of empty red wine bottles. Particularly the Chateau St. Michelle
bottles.

We had a 10 year company anniversary party at our office years ago and I thought I'd be funny and do that to a few co-workers. Guess they had the same idea because I had a few wine bottles in my desk the following Monday.

Fill one with whatever you drink when you play tennis, use food coloring to make it look like either Chardonnay or Cabernet, and chug from it on changeovers.

They can be thrown into the recycle bin and reused to make other glass products.

Always feels good to break one rather than a tennis racquet when your angry. Now you have a whole stock.

I would strongly suggest a .223, or best of the batch, a 22-250 Remington varmit round..1/4 faster than a .223.

Have .224 Weatherby Magnum, very pretty...

Always wanted 22-250...

Some day.

Was looking at the M77 Mark II, but could never bring myself to buck up for it knowing how little I would actually use it.

LeeD actually knows quite a bit about guns, he used to be a professional target shooter. Did you know he was trained by the great BobChow?

See the line "Bob was an all around sportsman and loved Motorcycles"

He fet right in with LeeD and gave him free guns in his shop he had in SanFran.

I visited a winery up in Kelowna and they cut their bottles in half and wired bulbs through the neck. They were some of the coolest hanging light fixtures I have seen.

Go pick some fights at the bars J011y. They will help you with that goal of losing 15 pounds :)

When tearing up and throwing out an old concrete path from a neighbors backyard, we found about 40-50 empty wine bottles which were just dumped under the concrete probably 20 or so years ago when it was put in. Just a thought
