http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/28/peanut-butter-landfill/7004653/ Nearly a million jars of peanut butter are being dumped at a New Mexico landfill to expedite the sale of a bankrupt peanut-processing plant that was at the heart of a 2012 salmonella outbreak and nationwide recall.
That's a whole lot of plastic in the ground. Unless you think they will scoop it out and re-use the jars. Yeah, that happens.

A million jars. So much for recycling. Some future civilization will unEarth this trove and come up with some interesting theories. Maybe we should include a note, explaining our massive screw-up.
A million jars. I'm still trying to fathom.
Yeah, no. I can't. All I can come up with is that this is far from an isolated incident.
What do I suggest?
Nothing. I got nuthin'. I just had to share. This is what we do. THIS is humanity.
That's all. Gather your own rosebuds on that one.
