Fun guy chillin’ in South American rainforest finds plastic-eating fungi
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

I’ve been thinking about some of the great things that we have gotten from SPN recently and even more that are promised in season 10. To me, it seems like TPTB are listening to the fans (somewhat - they certainly can’t please everyone). Here is just a partial list of SPN…

"Nuclear energy isn’t clean! What about the spent uranium?! It takes thousands of years to deplete!"

Here’s a thought:

send it to the sun

that would be a very good idea. It would also be extremely expensive

My 6 year old son asked me if I could touch the clouds when I’m at work, so I showed him this…


Fuck. I want this.
