    “The photobioreactor is a completely new biotechnological solution for air purification and the production of oxygen. In an aquarium of six hundred liters of water, we have algae that bind carbon dioxide and produce pure oxygen through photosynthesis. The project is designed to be multifunctional. LIQUID3 is also a bench, it has chargers for mobile phones, as well as a solar panel, thanks to which the bench has lighting during the night. The municipality of Stari grad has decided to support this project which directly contributes to improving the quality of life of our fellow citizens, public health and cleaner environment through using smart and innovative solutions ", said Bojan Bojić, head of the Department for social affairs and development projects in the Municipality of Stari grad.

    “The microalgae in "LIQUID 3" replace two 10-year-old trees or 200 square meters of lawn. The system is the same because both trees and grass perform photosynthesis and bind carbon dioxide. The advantage of microalgae is that they are 10 to 50 times more efficient than trees. Our goal is not to replace forests, but to use this system to fill those urban pockets where there is no space for planting trees. In certain conditions of great pollution, trees cannot survive, while algae do not mind that pollution”, pointed out Dr Ivan Spasojevic, one of the authors of the project from the Institute for Multidisciplinary Research.

    As he explained, the Institute used single-celled fresh water algae, which exist in ponds and lakes in Serbia and can grow in tap water, and are resistant to high and low temperatures. The system does not require special maintenance - it is enough to remove the biomass created by dividing algae, which can be used as an excellent fertilizer, in a month and a half, pour new water and minerals, and the algae continue to grow indefinitely. This project aims to popularize and expand the use of microalgae in Serbia, because they can be used in wastewater treatment, as compost for green areas, for the production of biomass and biofuels, as well as for air purification from exhaust gases from the factories.

    So - localized air quality improvement, and then dead algae slime gets used as a fertilizer?

    According to the website for the liquid3 thing, the benefits include "attractive ad space", and "promotion of social awareness" so, yeah, sure, it probably does that well enough.

    Edit: And fertilizer gets turned into food and food gets turned into CO2 in quick order.

    Edit2: I'm going to drop it now, I just wanted to emphasise that "growing things" does not and cannot reduce CO2, unless you sequester the resulting product which is the real challenge. Trees kinda do it themselves on a time scale that could be benefitial. Nothing else does. I know that they claim they can't grow trees in belograde even though there are trees next to and behind the tank

    It's also, you know, a university research project

    I'm a little less concerned about the implications when it's as likely to be real someday as the aircraft simulator I worked on ten years ago that is still struggling with the full scale concept build

    I'd be interested to read more from their white paper or whatnot on the design but I couldn't find it in a cursory Google

    Bozo cannot die because Bozo is a mantle like Batman. There will always be a Bozo.

    You have to throw a ping pong ball into the furthest bucket without stepping over the line.

    the officiant was his mother and this was a harry potter themed wedding

    y'all ever think about how mount toba should've finished our asses before we even got started?

    This is weirdly similar, in terms of thematic content, to the fake-podcast clip above, but tells a slightly different story about online context collapse. I first saw this controversial wedding vows exchange in the video in the tweet above. Though, the video, itself, is a clip from a user named @gemma2e dueting the original TikTok video, which was posted by a wedding photographer that goes by @lensculture. I’m unclear if @lensculture was the wedding photographer that actually shot the wedding or not, but either way, I’m not sure blowing up a couple’s wedding is a good way to advertise your services.

    The video went so viral the bride actually had to reply to @lensculture’s video and also post a video defending her husband’s (very bad) vows. She’s also currently using the video’s virality to sell vibrators. And just in case you wanted some more psychic damage, all of this apparently happened at a Harry Potter-themed wedding barn wedding.

    Look, if a cringe Snape wife wants to have a lame Pinterest wedding with her misogynist soyjak Reddit husband I actually don’t think that needs to be a trending topic. I’m sure they’re a fun couple to go to Buffalo Wild Wings with. And if it was her actual wedding photographer that kicked all of this off in the first place, I would literally consider suing him for emotional distress. Though, I suppose using said distress to sell sex toys complicates things. But I honestly just don’t think we’re meant to live this much in public. Weddings, like most big moments in people’s lives, are weird and personal and complicated and probably not really meant for this level of mass consumption.

    what

    i hope you've learned your lesson about helping grifters go viral
