Wisconsin Is Known For Their Cheese, So Why Not De-Ice Their Roads With It??

Filed under: Tech TalkMama NatureFood

LOLz! It's like the punchline of a ridiculous joke about Wisconsin and how they make cheese or something — but we get the feeling they'll be the ones with the last laugh if they can pull this off!

They're going to use CHEESE to de-ice their roads!

Well, salty cheese brine to be exact! They're mixing it with traditional road salt, which is super expensive. Just last year Milwaukee spent about $6 million on that salt alone, and it creates a harmful runoff when the ice melts!

Plus it's SUPER hard on cars!

So the city has joined a $6,500 pilot project! The science is like this: for every eight gallons of cheese producers' leftover wastewater, it will be mixed with a ton of rock salt. The best kind of brine comes from provolone and mozzarella, as they don't need much preparation before hittin' the ice!

Apparently there has been no negative backlash from this yet — no reports of excess lactose intolerance, or gross smells!

Sounds like an awesome solution to us!

Why So Bitchy, Ashley?

Filed under: AwardzTwilight

As Alice Cullen, Ashley Greene is suppose to be one of the cold ones. Last night at the VMAs, she lived up to her character's namesake.

Sources on the carpet report that Ashley wasn't her bubbly, friendly self with the press and fans.

In fact, besides the obligatory MTV shout out, she refused to talk to any sources at all! Her icy 'tude was pretty shocking to those who cared, but what really baffled most reporters was rather than sneak inside the venue to avoid the constant heckling from the media, Ashley decided to kick it with her entourage in the corner of the carpet.

What's up your ass, BB? Did you get one of the infamous break up texts from Joe Jonas???

That wouldn't be so surprising!
