Q: Why do you waste your time collecting garbage?
A: We don't feel it's a waste of time. We're proving the adage "One man's junk is another man's treasure", spending some quality family time together both by collecting the treasures and by working on this web site, and we're cleaning up the streets a little in the process.
Q: What does all that junk smell like?
A: Well, not good. It mostly smells like the air fresheners that are in there, so it's kind of sickly sweet mixed with grimey coin smell. No perfume manufacturer will ever come out with a fragrance named "Treasure Jar".
Q: How big is the actual jar?
A: It's approximately a one gallon size jar.
Q: When you fill the jar is the project over?
A: We filled the first jar on September 25th, 2003, second jar on September 25th, 2004 (Yes, as hard as it is to believe, exactly one year to the day. We didn't believe it either).
Now we are rolling on filling another one. We plan on continuing the project until it isn't fun anymore. No sign of that yet!
Q: What is a UFO?
A: A UFO is an Unidentified Found Object. It's something cool but we don't know what it is.
Q: Do you mind if I make a Treasure Jar of my own?
A: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Go for it!
Q: Where do you get your animations from?
A: They are drawn entirely in Windows Paint and then assembled in ULead Gif Animator.
Q: Do you guys really eat at all of those fast food places?
A: Not as frequently as the journal makes it seem. We sometimes drive through the parking lots when we pass by, just in case there are a few pennies lying around.
Q: Do you buy any of the treasures that you put in the jar?
A: Nope. It's strictly stuff people have dropped that we find lying around town.
Q: Can I post a link to your site on my webpage?
