Seldom am I this stupid:

Andrew was over last night watching the Pistons game. During a break I went to take laundry out of the dryer. I lamented that my dryer didn’t seem to be working very well and I had to run it several times per load and things would still be damp. He suggested cleaning the lint trap. “Wait, there’s a lint trap in this?” I asked.
I’m familiar with the concept and purpose of lint traps but I honestly thought this older model didn’t seem to have one, that lint just went out the vent and disappeared into the aether. Once said trap was located I discovered this.

Keep in mind I’ve been in my apartment since November. It’s literally like a core sample of the earth.
