Bateman’s dad evidently became enamored of garbage receptacles equipped with motion sensors, and the novelty hasn’t faded. “Day 1: Father discovers bins with sensors that trigger when he walks by, laughs every time,” Bateman writes. “Day 2: Dad begins greeting bins as if they were loyal, eager dogs. Day 3: Dad creates infinitely triggering bin cycle, laughs ass off.”
There’s a lesson here: be the dad cackling at trash cans that you want to see in the world.
