"I'm just going to look this one thing up real quick on wikipedia"

I can't believe there are people who see shoplifting from big corporations as a bad thing

Hypothesis: Anything a philanthropist can give the world as a gift, the world should have had by rights

Boss makes a dollar

Plant Microbial Fuel Cells let you enjoy both plants and solar energy at the same time!

Plants use light to produce sugars, and some of those sugars get deposited into the soil via the plants' roots. There, the plant sugars nourish soil bacteria, and with some clever use of electrodes, you can steal a little of the metabolic energy from those bacteria.

Essentially, you're using a living plant as a solar cell. It doesn't give you very much electricity but it's cool. πŸŒ±β˜€οΈ

- Decision-makers can’t reliably learn the information they need to make decisions, even though someone else has that information.

- Systems that are broken in multiple places so that no one actor can make them better, even though some magically coordinated action could move to a new stable state.
