My son Max was watching the The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy on TV just a moment ago when I heard Mandy state the opening line:
This statement is false.
What a beautiful phrase. This statement is known as a Liar’s Paradox. Is this statement true, or is it false? You decide…
When I heard that statement coming out of a cartoon, my jaw dropped to the floor. I wonder if any of the kiddies are pouring over that thing at this very moment… 😉
I think if we all band together, we can realize our dream of world peace through beer:
Beer: the energy drink for bacteria – Los Angeles Times
Scientists and an Australian beer maker are teaming up to generate energy from brewery wastewater and bacteria.
The University of Queensland was given a $115,000 grant to install the experimental microbial fuel cell at a Foster’s Group brewery near Brisbane.
The fuel cell is a battery in which bacteria consume water-soluble brewing waste such as sugar, starch and alcohol. The battery produces electricity and clean water, said Jurg Keller, the university’s wastewater expert.
