I alway buy the egg white in the milk like carton and when I use them, I mix with one whole egg just to give them something.

Not ridiculous at all because I was beginning to wonder the same thing recently :)
I found this website: http://www.fortysomething.ca/2010/04/recip es_to_use_up_extra_egg_yo.php
That lists info on how to freeze them, and recipes for using up egg yolks. Unfortunately, most of them look like very unhealthy recipes mostly for desserts, but there might be one or two in there you can work off of, or save for a special occasion or for something to make to give as a gift to someone else :)
I give them to our dogs. As long as your pups aren't fatties, it's perfectly fine for them and great for their coats. And they'll love you even more!

It depends. If you would use them, you can freeze them in a little tupperware. Just mark it so you know how many there are. They'd be great for cookies, custards or adding to some lucky jerk's eggs is s/he needs calories. If you're not going to use them, chuck them.
WE eat about half of them... occasionally toss them, though I hate to. And they can be frozen to add to sauces for a bit of richness that goes a long way.

I eat the yolks because I eat two eggs a week and love the yolks. They are also good for you in moderation of course. When I have some yolks because I am baking an angel food cake, I whip them up and put them on my hair. Yolks are pure protein and so is hair. I massage them in, put a towel around my head and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then, rinse with lukewarm water (or you will fry the eggs) It leaves hair healthy and shiny.
Throw them out. Don't give them to your pets as all you are doing is adding calories to your dog's diet and there is an epidemic of obesity amongst pets (just like people). An occasional yolk is fine for a larger dog, but even one egg yolk per day can be a significant amount of calories to a small pet (20-30% of their daily calorie needs for a tiny dog). If you give the yolks and reduce the amount of dog food you feed your dog, you will be unbalancing the diet of a small dog (replacing a food that is balanced with all the nutrients they need--dog food--with egg yolks, which are not balanced. In a small pet, this could lead to nutritional deficiencies over time. Treat foods should be limited to 10% or less of a pet's diet. Dogs don't actually have trouble digesting egg whites, but there is a substance in raw egg whites (avidin) which can bind up the biotin in egg yolks, possibly leading to a biotin deficiency if enough raw eggs are fed. But, the avidin is inactivated to a large extent by cooking.
I rarely just use the whites, but if I do, I give the yolks to the dogs.

I usually buy the egg whites in a box, but if I have to separate . I give them to my daughter. She feeds them to the dog and to my grandson. Apparently dogs and babies have a hard time digesting the whites. I personally have problems with the yolks...they give me terrible indigestion

Honestly, I chunk them. :) I use egg whites so rarely that it's not a big deal.
However, if you use them frequently, you can get egg whites in a container at the grocery store so you don't waste them.
Okay here comes a really random, possibly silly question. What does one do with egg yolks if the recipe just calls for egg whites? Or if you just want an egg white omelette? I know this is probably the most ridiculous question anyone has ever heard, (Or it has already been answered). But, just in case it hasn't and maybe someone else wants to know. :)
