I agree when dealing with things like metal objects...but what about things like pumpkins? Sending a few pounds of shredded pumpkin around the desert isn't a bad thing is it? I only mention it because we had a huge pumpkin shoot last November after Halloween and we had about 175 pumpkins...great time, but not a lot left to clean up!
Pumpkins will decompose in short order, and if the "meat" is not too terribly contaminated by the tannerite (or whatever), it will be devored by the local residents (Javelina and such).
But "hardware" (like the last video of a dryer going kablooey) being splattered (and left) all over the desert is not only criminal, but highly offensive to those folks who enjoy the outdoors for its natural beauty too.
If folks want to do stuff like that, they need to go back to Chicago, or Buffalo, or where ever they came from and trash those places...
