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

Filed under: Tech TalkMama NatureFood

cheese brine wisconsin roads

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!

Science Finds A Way: Breathalyzer Detects A Whole Range Of Illegal Drugs!

Filed under: DrugsScience!

breathalyzer drug detection safer roads science stockholm

Gone are the days of quickly popping in a piece of gum to hide whatever illegal thing you were doing from cops, because science just found a way to breathalyze that shizz! LOLz!

The good news is that the new technology is a super computer that isn't portable and costs a half a million dollars to build, right? WRONG, the scientists in Stockholm used a cheap, commercially available monitor called the SensAbues. Your driving under ANY influence days are numbered!

This new technique forgoes having to take blood and all of that, and only needs you to breathe. It detects not just weed, cocaine and amphetamine, but also prescription drugs such as diazepam and the painkiller buprenorphine! The roads already feel safer!

How does it work?

To that we say… whatever he's super hot and he's got Bane muscles and a seksi beard and he's super hot. LOLz!

A new Discovery show called Driven to Extremes is going to take A-listers, like Tom Hardy, Adrien Brody, Henry Cavill and more, to some of the most extreme places on earth.

The Netherlands Says YES To Glow In The Dark Highways!

Filed under: Etc.YouTube

Ever been driving on the highway and thought to yourself - wouldn't it be cool if this was like Tron and this highway was totally glow-in-the-dark?

Well, if you live in the Netherlands - that just became a serious possibility!

The idea behind it is that during the winder roads can become very dangerous.

The glow-in-the-dark designs theoretically eliminate this danger by making everything easier to see when temperatures decline.

Wow - so cool.

Road Congestion Wastes 1.9 Billion Gallons Of Gas

Filed under: PolitikTech Talk

Roads Are Shizzy

That is such a sad number.

Seriously: according to a new study, road congestion wastes 1.9 billion gallons of gas.

To put that in perspective, we pay about $4 per gallon for gasoline in this country, and we're wasting 1.9 billion gallons of it annually in traffic jams.

So. Gross.

Not only that, but
