    mind you, i’m thinking of clearing mine up – those aliens don’t know whether they’re coming or going.

    heya

    i just remembered a trip to manitoba about 15 years ago
    and something tangetically related to the close encounters
    trash mix … i don’t know if the containers still exist, but
    i remember the signs saying Put Your Trash Into Orbit,
    5 minutes, followed by others, 3 minutes, 20 seconds,
    and finally a spaceship-shaped, roadside trash container

    i can’t locate my photograph of the container and a google
    search was fruitless, but i did find a government document:

    HIGHWAY TRAFFIC H60 — M.R. 264/88

    Orbits (MI-23)
    11(1) An “Orbit” sign may be used on highways at selected locations to
    indicate the approximate time required to reach the location of a trash receptacle at
    maximum permitted highway speed.

    11(2) An “Orbit” sign shall

    (a) be rectangular in shape and erected so that the long dimension is horizontal;

    (b) be not less than 2700 mm in width and not less than 1200 mm in height;

    (c) be bordered in blue and divided by a diagonal line from top right to bottom
    left, colored white in the upper half and yellow in the lower half and displaying
    in blue characters not less than 60 mm in width and not less than 200 mm in
    height the words and figures “Put Your Trash Into ‘Orbit’ … 5 Minutes”;

    (d) be displayed so that the figure “5” referred to in clause (c) may be varied to
    indicate any other number in minutes;

    (e) be reflectorized so as to show the same color and shape by night as by day

    seems to me that there may be a business opportunity for the remix,
    creating musical icons on spaceships? or maybe on-screen alerts for
    trash receptacles in space?

    creating musical icons on spaceships… sign me up

    on-screen alerts for space trashcans sounds like a smelly business, though
