Why Does My Neighbor Put Milk Jugs on Her Lawn with Water in Them?

If it was in her garden, next to plants, I would guess she was slow-watering them, with a small hole in the bottom of the jugs. In the middle of the lawn? Hmm, ask her! Get to know your neighbor! I bet she will be happy to teach you a technique she uses for something. :)

1. Help me edit this article on Environmental Degradation? ***10 POINTS***?

Industrial pollution and environmental degradation are widely-and rightly-considered one of the largest problems facing our late-capitalist society. The continued effects of industrial pollution and environmental degradation make our factories less efficient, poison our groundwater, poison our air, use up natural resources and generally make the world filthier, deadlier, and less pleasant all around. Nowhere are the effects of environmental degradation more evident than in the mysterious "Sea of Trash", one of the saddest legacies of industrial pollution and environmental degradation currently on display anywhere in the world. The Sea of Trash is exactly what it sounds like. Plastic refuse and improperly disposed trash is often dumped offshore even in comparatively environmentally-conscious states like California and Oregon. In the minds of the illegal dumpers, this plastic refuse just drifts away somewhere out of sight and therefore out of mind, eventually probably becoming waterlogged and sinking into the Pacific, someone else's problem. In reality, plastic trash almost never degrades naturally, nor does it simply sink into the water and out of sight. It continues to float on the surface of the ocean until it's picked up on the neck of an animal-contributing to extinction and the pollution of animal habitats-or until it reaches its final goal, the dark legacy of industrial pollution and environmental degradation, the Sea of Trash. Refuse tends to come to the Sea of Trash because of its position in the North Pacific Gyre. The Coriolis Effect causes ocean currents to swirl, forming massive vortexes in the sea. These vortexes slowly draw water into them from all bordering regions. The water will slowly leave the area through evaporation and the standard weather cycle. Anything carried along in that water, however, will remain trapped in the vortex forever as a industrial pollution and environmental degradation. The Sea of Trash is the largest complex of trapped industrial refuse in the world, with an estimated surface area anywhere from 700 thousand to one million square kilometers, nothing but floating plastic refuse virtually the size of Texas. It did not get that way overnight, of course. According to official estimates, trash takes roughly a year to reach the Sea of Trash from the east coast of Asia and five years to reach the Sea from the west coast of the United States. Reach the Sea it does, however, leaving the world just a little bit more ravaged by industrial pollution and environmental degradation than it was before. So what can be done about the Sea of Trash? The only thing we can do, it seems, is to try not to make the Sea any larger than it already is. Beyond that, all we can do is float amidst the plastic bottles and milk jugs, and hope that we have not already pushed the planet too far.

2. What is something I can fill milk jugs with that is heavy to use as weights?

a gallon of water / milk is about 8 pounds. it depends on how heavy you need it to be. weigh yourself then weigh yourself holding the jug filled with sand/ gravel. adjust as needed. i think something like bird seed or rice is not heavier then water.

3. I just made waffles. Poured milk. What are the chances of a bug or something that doesn't belong in milk jugs?

The chances are greater for a bug to fly into your mouth when you yawn

4. when i was growing up milk jugs had the words homo milk on them . why dont they have it now? hmmm.?

Did not they say "homogenized" and not "homo"? I remember them saying "homogenized"

5. Do you or anybody in your house put empty milk jugs back in the fridge?

Yes! And it drives me completely mad!!

6. If I fill milk jugs with tap water and cap them how long will the water stay drinkable?

Assuming that you sanitized the jugs ; a couple of years .If worse comes to worse just add 8 drops of household bleach per gallon to the water before you drink it. The problem with plastic is that on a microscopic level it's porous so the little buggers can get in.
