A revenge tip from Wirecutter

Do you have a neighbor that you just absolutely hate (if not, you can have 4 or 5 of mine) and want to fuck with?
Go to your local market and buy a bag of birdseed. The more kinds of seed in the bag, the better. Wait until the middle of the night and scatter the seed EVERYWHERE in their yard, especially in their little flower gardens alongside the house.
In just a couple of weeks they'll have some very bizarre & noxious weeds growing.
By the way, if you've got some serious White Trash neighbors, this won't work. They'll never notice new weeds.

I'll go you one better, buy a box of copper nails and drive all of them into the base of the biggest tree on their property, within a year the tree will be dead and they will be stuck with the tree removal cost.

It's actually easier (and quieter) to go buy some sewer line root killer with copper sulfate and scatter it around the base of the tree. Not only will it kill the tree but nothing will ever grow there again. But that was going to be a future post.....
I do like the way you think, though.

I need a bigger notebook to write all this stuff down....

Funny, I don't have any problems at all remembering stuff like this.

Corn seed scattered on their lawn produce stalks even I would notice.

Marijuana seeds are even better.

I love automated phone calling devices. Oops, don't lose that PIN for your neighbor. http://www.idoc.state.il.us/subsections/vicservices/vicservstory.shtml The feds use the systems too.
