Let's face it: keeping things clean is a tough task for anyone. When you get home after a long day of work, it's easy to just let the laundry and dishes pile up, or stack as much trash as you can on the bin before you have to take it out. For some of us, it keeps getting pushed back, and pushed back even further. Then it reaches a point where we just wonder, "how did this get so bad?"

Now, apply that mentality to entire sprawling metropolis.

With so many people living in cities, there's bound to be buildups of trash. As it turns out, data is indeed collected about the amount of trash that grows.

Unfortunately, two cities in Texas have definitely failed to take "Don't Mess With Texas" to heart, and we can smell 'em from miles away.
