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.

The business owners and the manager at my job are refusing to buy us new five-gallon jugs for our water cooler. They are blaming us for drinking too much. The next delivery isn’t for two weeks and our cowtown-located warehouse doesn’t get good tap water.

What YEAR is this?

look up the business code for employee water usage or go to city hall and inquire as to worker conditions laws.  if they have to provide it they cannot refuse, especially if the tap water is sub-par.  also the tap water and/or plumbing may not be up to code and could get the business fined, so i’d do some research.
