Talking Trash Cans 

Have we forgotten the terrible lessons of the 1980s? I still recall the feeling of panic and frustration I felt every time I heard someone's Chrysler LeBaron tell me "A door is ajar" 5000 times in a row. I thought we, as a species, had moved beyond this.

But now the BBC is reporting that the city of Berlin is planning to install trash receptacles that say "Thank You" when you use them. I can hardly imagine what uses the German equivalents of Beavis and Butthead will find for this new "feature."
