there are amazing similarities between the two, even though the dictionary definitions are opposed
|1.||any old or discarded material, as metal, paper, or rags.|
|2.||anything that is regarded as worthless, meaningless, or contemptible; trash.|
|3.||old cable or cordage used when untwisted for making gaskets, swabs, oakum, etc.|
|4.||Nautical Slang. salt junk.|
|5.||Baseball Slang. relatively slow, unorthodox pitches that are deceptive to the batter in movement or pace, as knuckleballs or forkballs.|
Both encourage hoarders and people become overly obsessive about both.
your junk is my treasure.
I collect them and look after them.
