“Let a homeless person use a computer and he’ll search through the recycle bin”

A computer’s “recycle bin” doesn’t contain cans and bottles like other recycle bins, but there are jokes. “If homeless will sit on computer,he’ll go on recycle bin...lol.:DDDDD” was posted on Twitter on April 13, 2011. “I once gave a homeless man and old computer, the first thing he did was look in the recycle bin” was posted on Twitter on January 29, 2012.

“What does a homeless person do the first time you let them use a computer? Searches through the recycle bin” was posted on Twitter on October 16, 2012.


Wikipedia: Trash (computing)
In computing, the trash (also known as the recycle bin in Windows and by other names in other operating systems) is temporary storage for files that have been deleted in a file manager by the user, but not yet permanently erased from the file system. Typically, a recycle bin is presented as a special file directory to the user (whether or not it is actually a single directory depends on the implementation), allowing the user to browse deleted files, undelete those that were deleted by mistake, or delete them permanently (either one by one, or by the “Empty Trash” function).
