    I’ve been working less than two miles from the location of the vehicle found for almost 20 years. I have driven by the location thousands of times. For nearly half that time the vehicle has been there. This is along a major through road servicing millions of vehicles. The pond containing the vehicle has three fountains that should have been serviced several times during the past nine years. The out building on the Northeast edge (corner?) of the pond was not yet built nine years ago, to my knowledge. It is my understanding the lights were being hung on the pine trees near the out building. Truly weird that nobody found this vehicle and the owner until recently. Needless to say it was quite the talk at our office the day of the discovery. Keep on keeping it weird.

    When I was in Uni, the concept of charging for plastic bags was taught as a free-market solution to the “tragedy of the commons” associated with waste. Since bags were essentially free, there was no limiting factor for overuse or waste. It was a hidden cost we had to share.

    By charging a small fee, consumers would treat it as a scarce resource and incorporate it into their behavior. You might set the price to correlate with the environmental cost (another commons), but you really just wanted it to be a slight burden to consumers.

    Jesus, guys, that Windows PING at 2:50 really confused me.

    Keep up the great work! 😉
