Now there really is a start-up for everything

I dare you, dare you, to tell me we’re not in a tech bubble.

There’s a new startup called TrashDay — and as far as I can tell, this is a real thing — in San Francisco that will take your trash cans out to the curb for you on trash day.

You fill out a form, tell them where your trash cans are … and I guess you never have to worry about it again.

Ten bucks a week, four to six cans. 

I’m kind of hoping it’s a joke, and I just missed it.
