Scrappers

by

Have you seen this show on Spike TV? It’s about one of the lesser-covered old school Brooklyn professions: scrap metal resale. This is truly trash TV. And in the vein of Jersey Shore, it’s also a study in regional vernacular exploiting the world outside of Brooklyn’s romanticism of the local accent. And since Spike TV is geared toward men, the show is super manly. Enjoy.

Thanks for the tip, Anthony.

In searching for Scrapper clips on YouTube, I also came across this intriguing documentary about the controversial scrapping of government explosives. People wait beside the fields where the military runs test drops of bombs, then run out onto the field to recover the remains of the weapons. According to this documentary, blowing oneself up accidentally is not an uncommon job hazard. Crazy.

    Shows how desperate people are to make a living. Don’t you think it’s sad that they are so poor they are willing to take the chance of being blown up?

    lol, that is crazy, people also rip wires out of the telephone exchange boxes for the copper – some met with an electric shock. Whats happening to the world!!

    You have obviously never had to live in a world where there is NO money. You need to come down to street level where the poor people live and learn how they cope. I’m not talking about the ones who suffer from alcoholism, drug addictions or mental illness. There are honest hard working people in North America who have a very difficult time making ends meet. They learn to do what they have to do. Perhaps you should look at what’s wrong with the system that people get that desperate.
