someone did a very bad job at procuring shredders.
More worrisome, though, is that a DARPA challenge has now given us
OCR-assisted shred reassembly, good against cross-cut shreds. If you're worried about a large entity (nation-state, corporation, police department) reading your stuff, burning is the only way to do it. (Back when I worked at a facility with classified documents, there was a very rusty 55-gallon drum out back for precisely that purpose. :-)
