Got something against other people, but want to save the planet? Then chucking bottles at New York's "Glassphemy!" installation is for you.Throwing bottles into recycling bins is not new, but throwing them at people at the same time is.Eco-minded artists in a gritty area near Brooklyn's notoriously polluted Gowanus Canal have set up a tower-shaped container made of bullet-proof glass and metal frames that allows visitors to do just that.Guests -- allowed by invitation only -- are encouraged to stand on a high platform and hurl bottles down against the glass wall.

Jacob, a loyal MR reader, asks me:
When I last visited New York City, I was annoyed that most restaurants there do not offer free refills on soft drinks. Why is this? An easy answer is that it is due to the fact that most restaurants do not have soda fountains, but this explanation is unsatisfying as it does not explain the underutilization of soda fountains. In Europe it has been suggested previously on the blog that this phenomenon is due to high taxes on sugar, etc. but I do not think this applies in NYC.
