Actually, they were just a bunch of homeless dope fiend kids, but I hung out with them quite a bit for awhile, so yeah I've dumpster-dived.
But it's been a pretty long time.
We lived on campus (although we weren't students), so every time a semester ended, we'd score some hella good stuff out of the trash, because the students would move out and throw all their stuff away, some of it brand new, even still with price tags.
Right after Christmas, too, we'd get some pretty good scores.
