About Eucan megabins


Behold the small megabin (not quite an oxymoron; perverse official name: EcoMupi) in front of the 7-Eleven. Is it really worse than the store’s own sign?

Four-foot-high billboard with garbage receptacle on the edge sits at curb, while movable 7-Eleven sign, held down by bricks, reads SPECIAL BIG BITE HOT DOG 2 FOR $2.99

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
