    Ancient Romans: It speeds the process up. The food goes through both ends without having to move. No wonder the Romans usually reclined…

    Thomas Ava Edison’s (1847-1931) first successful light bulb shone for 13½ hours.

    I’ve read about the firehouse light bulb; the fact that the bulb has been working for over a century is truly amazing.

    Yes, his middle name was Alva. My middle school was named for him.

    So, I guess it would take about 1000 Darkling Beetles to make a plastic spoon.

    But why did they put the toilet in the kitchen? My toilet is almost in the kitchen, but there’s a wall in between.

    Now, that’s something we really need, more plastic! We need to figure out how to do a better job of making plastic from plastic.

    Ah, the good ol’ days before consumerism when products would last a long time.

    Up until the early ‘70s, Detroit Edison would replace burned out light bulbs free when they were given the the burned out bulbs in exchange. Other manufacturers of bulbs complained that they couldn’t make money and took DetEd to court. DetEd fought it and lost. DetEd explained to consumers that it was not their choice. Seems like not all corporations are evil.

    Somehow, I think you’re missing the point.
    The ‘plastic’ made from beetle shells is organic, so no actual ‘plastic’ is involved. The ‘fake’ plastic would theoretically be less damaging to the planet, obviously.
    What were your grades in Chemistry?

    Agreed. Thats the first thing that came to mind. With all the earthquakes and such.

    He probably didn’t take chemistry.
