Why Civilizations Die

City Cracks Down On Counterfeit Trash Bags

When the Massachusetts city unveiled its new $2 purple trash bags that all residents must use when disposing of household waste, the word 'official' was deliberately spelled 'offcial.'

What? You have to use an official purple trash bag to throw out your trash? Are they insane? Is there a stronger word than insane? Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think there would be mandated, overpriced ($2.00?!) trash bags. This is what happens just before a civilization dies off.

The Incas tried this, I'm pretty sure.
