NYC and DC Get $4k Bomb-Stopping Trash Cans

So it appears that the latest weapon against the war on terror is a 2,000-pound, steel bin of....trash. Dubbed the BlastGard 101, the new trash can is being rolled out in parts of NYC and DC for its bomb-stopping capabilities. So aside from its massive weight, the steel trash bin can quench fireballs and stifle blast reverbs. Not bad for a $4,400 trash can. But if all that bomb-in-the-subway talk makes you weak in the knees, you'll be glad to know the BlastGard will come in a variety of colors including Juarez Flower and Mystique Blue.
