fatal fungal disease infecting bats in michigan

This is awful! And so sad!

A deadly infection that has killed millions of mammals who eat mosquitos has been found in at least five bats in Wisconsin and Michigan collected back in February.

The fungal disease is discovered when bats have a white-nose syndrome, which you can totally see on the bat (above).

The discovery could have a huge detrimental effect on

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!

Wisconsin Man Orders A McDonald's Sandwich With Everything On The Menu!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoodFast Food

man order mceverything at mcdonalds

Have you ever gone to McDonald's and had a difficult time deciding what to order??

Well here's a simple solution: Order everything on the menu and combine it into one great big Frankenstein sandwich of goodness!!

Ok, so it sounds a little ridiculous, right? Well not to this guy!

A food enthusiast and blogger known simply as Nick came up with the diabolical creation for his bucket list a couple of years ago, and he finally decided to put it to the test! Luckily he decided to document the historical moment so future civilizations would know about the sandwich he titled, the McEverything!

In case you were wondering (you know you are), the greasy tower consists of 43 burgers and cost him $141.33! But before you gasp at the alarmingly high price, remember that a dollar of that was for a Diet Coke!

Hey, at least ONE thing from this meal has to be healthy, right??

Thankfully, he did NOT attempt to eat the McEverything in one sitting, but he says he DOES have a plan:

Jetpack Set To Soar In The U.S.A.'s Most Exciting Location!

Filed under: InspirationTech TalkScience!

WISCONSIN!

LOLz!!

That's right, guys! Swiss pilot Yves "Jetman" Rossy wears jet-propelled wings on his back and flies around like it's the future or something… and he just made his first public flight in America!!

The flight was at the Experimental Aircraft Association Air Venture in Wisconsin, which seems like an odd place to have anything experimental, unless you want to do it in a place that has the least amount of activity to interfere as possible!

Ha! We're just messing with you Wisconsin! You and your cheese are just fine in our books!! Plus, the Venture has been happening for 61 years and attracts a half million people from around the world, so Wisconsin is actually the PERFECT place for this!

Check out the flight and a little more about Yves in the video (above)!

P.S. — Where's Rob Lowe?? He would LOVE this!
