It came from beyond the blue box!

Ever wonder exactly what happens to your recyclables after the homeless guy picks 'em out of the dumpster and parks his severely overloaded 1988 Sears mountain bike at the bottle depot? The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has a neat infographic-type thingamy explaining the process. Hey, anything that involves both saving the planet andshooting aluminum through the air with oscillating magnetic currents gets my vote. (You're only shooting it three or four feet, though, guys? You've gotta do waaaaay better than that if we're gonna repel the invading armies of evil with a stack of crushed beer cans and some Tesla-grade mad science.)
