If you are digging in a dumpster with tons of hardware over you and you 
dig out some weird looking cards it'd be handy to know what they are ;-) 
How many times did I bring back home tons of cards to find out they are 
4/16 chokenring or other bizarr stuff that had it's rightfull place 
inside the dumpster.

I really would appreciate google inside a dumpster but I would not know 
how to start an proposal to the trash company.
