There was a special in 60 Minutes or one of those other newsmagazine TV shows several years ago about a profession called Garbology. It's part archaeology and part cultural anthropology. People go to landfills and dig through trash bags to study our habits based on what we throw away. Occasionally when I throw something out I'll think, "I hope a garbologist doesn't go through this bag." They would think I'm pretty pathetic from this Chris O'Donnell movie and a half-filled out journal. The only thing worse than a garbologist going through my embarrassing garbage would be if 60 Minutes did another report on the profession and they opened my trash bag on TV.
