You do realize what the point of shredding things is, right?

Attention humanity: when you have a document that's in landscape layout for Godknowswhat reason, and you put it through a typical shreds-in-one-direction-into-strips shredder, it often makes strips of completely readable text.

When you look into the shredder bin and you can clearly read names, addresses, diagnoses, and entire sentences about people sitting there in the shreds, your shredding wasn't very effective, now was it?

In case this is too hard for you to figure out independently, folding the paper in half and shredding it perpendicular to the lines of text, as God intended paper to be shredded, will solve this problem.
