Slate is running a photo series honoring the tin can. Some interesting photos in there.

For me, this photo was the most powerful. Can’t really explain it, except to say it feels so… bleak. A harsh, bright light on modern life.

I don’t think that would have made it into my top 5 guesses.  Not only that, women are much more likely to attempt to steal meat than men (who tend to prefer Tylenol and batteries, often in conjunction with a drug habit, because of their street resale values.)
