#idea: I think a good way to get manufacturers to reduce #packaging might be to come up with a standard for packaging vs product ratio. Based on weight or volume, not sure whats best. They could be placed next to the new #recycling labels. Then people can compare similar products.
Also frozen pizza manufactures should label boxes with the diameter, that way they don't have to make their boxes unnecessarily bigger to compete.
Stop using #CryptoCurrency, Horrible for the environment, extremely useful to criminals and sanctioned countries. Most new cryptocurrencies created are scams, multiple major exchanges(banks) have been hacked loosing tens of millions. Causes blackouts in major cities. Increases energy costs. It is a currency with no stable basis and bubble will enviably crash. Just stop using it. It is a investment in a thing with no substance and the only way to stop is for people to stop caring about it
pretty amazing art created by bruising bananas
really cool roots
A funny #quote i just read
"The #dragon looked a little contrite. Ah, well, I have difficulty reading the tiny books you little people make, so I invented something I call an #audiobook.
Oh? A sort of magic? Booksie wondered. Library magic always fascinated me!
Likewise! But no. An audio book is when you find someone that can read and translate a book at the same time, usually a scholar, and then kidnap them so that they can read to you."

This is a present I made a while ago, but i just can across the photo, so thought id share, feel free to copy the idea. They are all natural #minerals in vials
#patentTrolls just suck, they offer no benefit to anything, except to themselves. Nothing. I just read this, where #Intel owes $2+ billion to a company that doesn't produce anything, except the law suit, that is. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-02/intel-told-to-pay-2-18-billion-after-losing-texas-patent-trial
So i was thinking, they should make a law so that a #patent is considered abandon(ie can't sue), if the owner has no plans on producing anything using the patent concept or anything derived from the original idea. Seem like a common sense solution.
Here is a better way to slice a #pizza, in my opinion. It is thinner even width slices, easier to fit in mouth. Cut to be more like appetizer.
[#science/#climateChange] This one made me feel like crap, when i learned it so i thought i'd share. Rice production is one of the largest producers of methane by humans. It also produced nitro-oxide, another #GreenHouseGas. So i guess ill try using orzo, or quinoa alternatively.

[#idea] I know its a bit on the late side but businesses should put out #TipJar for customer service workers, like grocery store workers. Businesses aren't going to give hazard pay for increased risk of #covid, but a tip jar may help. I doubt they even get payed time off if they get covid.
[#art] Miniature houses for mice installed all over Europe.
This is kinda neat. It claims a restoration, but allot of it is rebuilding from scratch. Including making screws. All using fancy professional machining tools. It's a bit long but if you play it in the background, while doing something.
