Meet the Future of Plastic: 100 Percent Biodegradable, Organic Bags You Can Eat!

"EnviGreen’s bags will naturally degrade in 180 days and if they are submerged in water they disappear in a day. Oh and also – these bags are edible.

This means that when animals encounter non-degraded bags, they can eat them with no adverse effects..."

<p>Hegde founded EnviGreen and began to tinker with ways to make plastic-like substances that would be: “100 percent organic, biodegradable, and eco-friendly.”</p>

The race is on
As with every promising technology there is race going on who can buy the most promising start-up. The danger of inflated expectations both financial and with regard to the technology (AI) itself are there in my view.

An amazing and heartwarming story. These stories reach people who are alone, terrified, and in pain.

If anyone ever tries to tell you that television and comic books don’t have any bearing on the lives of real people, now you can tell them this story.

Abridged...
Wow, we came into this adventure late. The Chairman has already turned the police into chairs and wait, what? And Spider-Man's trapped and being interrogated about antique chair shipping schedules? I have no idea how the fuck we got here. And I also have no idea why this isn't celebrated by the Smithsonian as history's first Spider-Man story written by a grandmother filled with paint fumes. If they really did this many drugs in the '70s, shouldn't more of us be centaurs?

This is one of the rare instances where Hostess Twinkies foil a villainous plot by way of their physical properties, not their distracting deliciousness. The skin of a Twinkie is so slippery that if you didn't mind taking a few years off your life, you could suck one through a straw. Look closely at the fifth panel:

One of those golden sponge cakes landed up the barrel of The Chairman's gun! Do you have any idea how much grease you need to have on the surface of an object to slide it into a hole 1/8th its size from 10 yards away? I do, ladies. You should really see some of these X-rays.

AI is more artificial then intelligent but who cares?
An article which warns for the bubble of inflated expectations about AI. A valid point, still the article ends with the conclusion that machine learning, NLP etc. will lead to large and dramatic improvements. Which makes me wonder whether it's not a pure semantic discussion. If my whole world changes because of "narrow AI" , machine learning, deep learning etc. I don't care whether "real" AI exists or not ?

Google got its self-driving cars to make three-point turns, but instead of using the optimal path, they programmed it to use the path that minimizes the amount of time the car spends in reverse, so as to not freak out the human occupants.

Children of the '90s were aghast to hear there was a live-action Captain Planet film reboot in the works, courtesy of the producers behind the Transformers movies. Even the good people at Funny or Die...

The best thing about superhero fruit pie stories is that they don't have time for setup. This story opens with Norse gods fighting hillbillies in a space R.V. and fuck you if you can't keep up. If they made a movie version of Thor in The Ding-A-Ling Family, it would take 70 or 80 minutes to get to where we already are in one panel and critics would still complain about the density of the script.

I'm not entirely sure what's going on here since half the dialogue is in Thor and the other half is in Appalachian, but from the mentions of "thy familial bonds" and "cousin-power secret weapon," I'm guessing you'd need M.C. Escher to draw the Ding-A-Ling family tree.

What Message did this Ad Send?
What message didn't it send? I can't say enough about the elegance of this writing. In the middle of a fist fight, without a narrator, the author somehow explains to Thor and the readers that if you get your sister pregnant, the babies will be immune to hammers. This writer could adapt The Great Gatsby for a bumper sticker.
