pipelines to pipe dreams


trash.jpg  Japan has to scrap its futuristic system of underground garbage tunnels.  The subterrainian passageways aren’t bringing in the private revenues they once did and thus have become waste themselves (Look out Minneapolis, the Skyway’s days are numbered). 

The tunnels made news earlier this year when some kids from Osaka got stuck inside one.  Of course cash, not safety, is what finally shut them down.

No word yet on whether this will simplify Japan’s complex garbage collection and categorization methods.

Perhaps they’ll just go back to burning it all.
