A supermarket chain in the UK announced today that it’s going to power one of its stores entirely off food waste. It’s an attractive solution to two of the most gnawing sustainability concerns: waste and energy.

A Sainsbury’s in Cannock, a town in the West Midlands, will get all of its electricity from food waste through a process called anaerobic digestion. The process is pretty much what it sounds like: waste food is “digested” by microorganisms in huge tankers sealed off from the air, which Sainsbury’s compares to a human stomach.

Biffa, the waste management company working with the supermarket, explains that the waste is broken down into a slurry that degrades into an energy rich biogas, a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide.

oh no

*blinks bemusedly*

oh bless the OP’s heart.

I suppose it’s inevitable that the 90s would eventually get romanticized (I mean heavily, like this, beyond “retro is cool”) just like any other era, but already?

This is hilarious :P “when kids didn’t care about popularity” C’MON

Are we all sure this isn’t satire?

Who’s being used as Sirius here?

So, I’m trying to find a new job, and yesterday I went to an interview & then to another place to drop off a resume/application. And they asked me both times about my age or if I was 18. I was confused about why they were asking me at first, because I’ve always thought I looked about my age or maybe even slightly older, but apparently I get mistaken for an underage teen? Wow. 

Welcome to being some kind of elfything. :P

Someone else with better Elvish than mine can confirm or deny, but I sound-feel like this should undergo mutation: “I Daur” rather than “I Taur”…?

I call to Cernunnos of ancient bearing,
enthroned in the splendor of moss and stone;
all creatures of earth and air lay at your feet,
taking comfort and shelter in your presence.
Cernunnos of Gaul, Cernunnos of the scattered tribes,
O god of field and forest, broad-antlered one,
bearer of the shining torc, hidden by the years,
shadowed by leaf and branch, friend of the stag and doe,
granter of good, for a full purse and a full belly
we thank you. Cernunnos, lord of the wildwood,
vigor and vitality you gift to man and beast;
for all your blessings, all your works, I honor you.

    Hey, weird animal people, have you thought about how many wolf therians there are/that you are obviously human/that clinical lycanthropy is an illness/that totems are meant to be symbolic? Hah! I'm so clever!

  • Therian:

    Actually, yes, there are several essays on this subject in the community and it has been discussed in forums and mailing lists and blogs. It's a complex subject, but here, have some links.
