How good are you when it comes to throwing things in trash cans? Whether it be paper wads, erasers, or anything.

I know I'm terrible because just yesterday I was hanging out with a friend at the mall and we got some icecream. So I had the idea of throwing my spoon into the trash can. It was about three feet away. I tossed it, it somehow flew upwards, went over the trash can, and almost hit this couple on the other side of the trash can.

If you have any good stories of amazing shots or misses or a good technique for throwing them (I've seen people get really serious about this, so I bet there's a technique somewhere for it), post it all here.

I can be two feet away and still miss. Let's just say that I miss the trash that is right next to my bed when I am in my bed.

I somehow misunderstood the thread...anyways, I can throw a crumpled piece of paper pretty accurately from a far distance, not that I use a certain technique.

My garbage always bounces on the side of the bin and then....falls off. :(

I believe once I threw a paper cup in the garbage and it landed standing up. But other than that it usually hits the side and falls.

i found a box of condoms and threw them into a trash can as a lady watched me do it. I felt really weird after it.

I thought this was going to be a litter/recycle thread lulz.

When i'm studying i usually procrastinate by scrunching up balls of paper and playing hoop with my trash can.

I haven't really worked on my skills, so I usually fail epically at throwing things in a desired direction. Basketballs, footballs, trash, frisbees, I usually feel like someone's going to be in the hospital after a game a catch.

I don't usually throw out papers (kind of lazy), so that's why my backpack looked a little bit like this...

I usually don't bother throwing things into trash cans, unless they're meant thrown in anyway.

And as for performance, I'm alright at throwing things in.
