    Nur vom Titel her hätte ich gesagt, dass hier von "konzentriertem Unsinn" die Rede ist (as in "utter nonsense", haha...)

    Könnte man das auch in dem Sinn im Englischen verwenden?

    Actually, in BrettUSA's sentence "compact" is used as a verb, not an adjective. The title of the thread could have read: to compact garbage; but the "to" is sometimes left off of infinitives.
    Granted, "compact" can also be used as an adjective, but that doesn't work here, at least not in your interpretation.
