Recycle Bin?

Was watching "The Screen Savers" on TechTV Friday evening, and Leo Laporte came up with an interesting Windows, why is the label on the garbage can icon on the desktop "Recycle Bin"? After all, when you send something there, you aren't looking to "recycle" it, your intention is to get rid of it! That said, he showed how to go into the registry(telling everyone to be extremely careful not to accidentally delete or change anything else, it could really screw up your computer!), and change the name of the "Recycle Bin" to anything you wanted to. He renamed his, "Garbage Can". I followed his directions, changed the name of mine to....

Kind of stupid, ain't it??
