It bad enough terrorist bomb innocent people, do they have to attack poor defenseless Trash Bins; I used the word Bin to acknowledge our mean older brothers way of talking.
I regularly drop trash on the ground and take great pride in my creative ways of being a litterbug. I would gladly throw all my trash in a can if there is one within 100 meters, if not, let her fly…

I at one times considered a joke post, making a map of all the trashcans in the Khao San Road area of Bangkok. I am annoyed, the world wants me throw trash down, they must, or they would give me an easy solution to trash. Now, of all things, the super dependable 7-11 convenience stores of Khao San Road seem to have removed most of their trash bins.
The scoop is this, Terrorist put bombs in Trash Cans. I found this one off Khao San Road and was happy to find it; 7-11 is as far as I can figure to be one of the most trash responsible stores in Thailand.
There is the recycled tire trash bin that is cool, and I it find them in strange places, and Had Yai seems to be very up to snuff as a city.
As a rule of thumb, I only throw trash down inside a city or village, never in the countryside. Maybe I am helping the world to create jobs, however you do it, and if I drop it in the street somebody will someday come and pick it up, and go dump it in the river for me…
Popular places for trash, backs of trucks that almost hit me, in front of stores I do not like, hand to people, leave on the counter of the store. I for sure leave a lot of trash in front of the hotel, the hotel needs to have a trashcan or in front of the hotel is good enough for me.
I often hand trash to locals, here it is your country, you figure out what to do with it.
It is not good, terrorist are blowing up trash cans, I do hope they continue to blow themselves up, I like the trash cans, and the best justice in their cowardly deed is they die. I seen nothing brave about killing yourself up, fanatical yes, zealot yes, but brave no, I do think there is a Darwin joke here in this mix.

I just noticed this post. It makes me laugh.
I live in London, and there is a trash can everywhere, so long as you are in the STREET.
If you are using trais, especially the underground trains, there are NO bins anywhere. People are afraid the terrorists will blow up the bins as you say.
What do people do? King's Cross station now hires 7 members of staff to go round picking up litter, or if you see them you can give them your litter. They will check it is not a bomb, then put in their bag.
Most stations do not do this. So I drop and walk. Sometimes, I find interesting places to 'display' my litter to show the world how paranoid they are. Statues or vending machines are good places to attach coffee cups and newspapers to.
Increasingly I find that people put their used 'free newspaper' inside the metal box that dispenses the free newspapers first thing in the morning. By evening, they are full up again with the days free paper. This makes the people who give you the free newspaper have to deal with it before they can fill it with new ones next day. I like to think this is poetic justice.
Ash, Thanks, explaining clearly what I have been trying to say.
