Like the Great Barrier Reef, New York City has its own critters that come and vacuum up our waste. Meet the freegans! They have fun dinner parties, where they eat things from the trash and talk about the errors of capitalism, and they scurry out of their caves at night to take away that Ikea crap that surrounds the N.Y.U. dorms. Gosh, it'd be so easy to make fun of them for being so totally gross, except they're gonna be the ones to survive the apocalypse. And who'll be laughing then? And unlike the "no impact" green fools, at least they probably scavenge for toilet paper. See you in the dumpsters!
