Yeah yeah I know...look I just "stumbled across" this site in the middle of the night when I went for a leak.

At first, it seems like the saddest place on the entire internet, but it's actually fairly interesting and the guy's written two books on the subject. Also, look how good the site looks.

Hey, I used to work with somebody who would collect the labels from apples. Any time he would have an apple, he would peel the lable off and stick it to his locker. He had hundreds of them stuck there.

I started collecting beer labels, but ran out of room in the house.

Yer can't beat Orchard Street for shopping. Uhmmm, taking a leak on the street isn't recommended though.

Do they sell leaks down there?

(I think a distant relative may have been sent to Australia for a very similar thing)

Collecting apple labels is way out of date BTW.

These days, people are collecting iPod labels, if they're collecting anything.

Wombat! Even out here "in the Dunes", we have WiFi these days, so one can sit on the "throne" and PPRuNe with the laptop;)

I stick the labels from my daily lunch time apple on the bin liner, it gives me a clue as to how often the bin liner gets changed. The record was 36 labels......:(
