One of these things is not like the others, one of these things does not belong

Look at the picture. Find the item that doesn't belong with the rest of the items in the picture.

We can put people in outer space but we can't put a coke can
in the trash can 6 feet away?

In all fairness, Franklin Park at Purcellville VA is a beautiful, clean and well-cared for park.

It's just that humans are humans: messy. So here are these examples of what I see - often in much more quantity - in the course of seeking out beautiful peaceful outdoor locations.

What you pay attention to, you get more of. For the rest of the afternoon I noticed every little cigarette butt, every little scrap of paper. Many of these found their way into my trash bag on my way to the picnic table to grill chicken and re-string the banjo.
