When Nerds are at Their Best

This little Canadian dudebro is basically going to change the world. He found a way to have bacteria break down plastic bags (which we produce about 500 billion of a year) in a complete natural system that only produces water and tiny amounts of CO2 as waste. The bags would eventually decompose in nature after about a thousand years but he's got his bacteria chowing them down to nothing in about 3 years. My favorite quote from the interview is 'all you need is a fermenter . . . your growth medium, your microbes and your plastic bags.' America take note. The next thing this kid does is probably going to be finding a completely natural a renewable fuel source to run his country on. Then he's going swallow up our oil dependent, recession denying, non-universal healthcare asses and take over the world. Say hello to your future Supreme Ruler.
