Teen creates bio-plastic from banana peels

Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.
The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.
“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.
“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”
Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.
In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.


Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?
Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.

When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.

Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands
basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them

or that one time a girl found the cure for cancer that we could be using in 15 years

But nah, girls and women just suck at math and science and have never invented anything worthwhile. Sure. Right.

How to spot a fake gamer guy:

  1. They complain about other people enjoying something they like.
  2. They make a complaint that is completely unfounded and wrong.
  3. They don’t like this badass Foxy cosplay.

Hi I am the Foxy cosplayer up above. I have a few words to say about this.

Okay um wow I had no idea this was even on here, let alone there whoever this person was had a problem with this. SO LET ME ADDRESS A FEW THINGS HERE.

1. The hook, as far as I know, is on the CORRECT arm. Every single reference I have seen of Foxy has shown with the hook on the RIGHT ARM. CHECK ON IT IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME. Plus the armor arm (which belongs to Rima) that I borrowed can only fit on the left arm so even if it was the “wrong” arm I had no choice. Ps seriously you’re going to bash me because I got a little detail wrong?? Lol wow you need to get a life.

2. Ah yes. I am a woman therefore my cosplay sucks. Make SO MUCH SENSE RIGHT???? And wow, it matters to you, LITERALLY. ONLY YOU. BECAUSE YOUR OPINION. IS SO. IMPORTANT. See this is why I am a feminist, because it’s shit like this that really irritates me. Because it’s totally cool if a guy were to do whatever kind of cosplay from FNAF, but as soon as I, a woman, even try to have fun with a game (FYI I HAVE COMPLETED THE ENTIRE GAME) that I like I suddenly am seen less of a person.

3. Oh I’m sorry my cosplay was bad?? Wow you should tell that to literally the DOZENS of people who complimented on my costume at Anime California. For making that costume literally the day before I would say I did a fucking fantastic job. But obviously since I’m so bad, I would LOVE to see you try and pull this off better than me. Lolthatwasajokenobodywouldcare.

4. IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO EVERYONE IN THE WORLD: RESPECT ALL COSPLAYERS FOR WHAT THEY GIVE OUT. NO IFS, ANDS OR BUTS. IF SOMEONE TOOK THE TIME OUT OF THERE LIFE CREATE SOMETHING, THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS GIVE THEM THE RESPECT THEY NEED.

TL;DR Hook is on the correct arm. I’m a woman, fucking deal with it. I don’t care what you think about my cosplays, I’m still going to love myself! And give respect to all cosplayers.

PEACE I’M OUT. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

The long awaited sequel to this previous comic. Otherwise known as ‘Why You Should Not Booty Call in Front of Your Granny’ by Aoba Seragaki

playbunny:

ok i currently take back what i said before about the pxs comic

i am loving terezi’s current “i am so tired of karkat and his fucking bullshit and i want to punch him in his face” attitude 

this is what i enjoy

Thats the literal best type of karezi tho
Terezi just getting tired of his bullshit and calling him out on it
Or reverse
Just angry teenagers
Hell it doesnt even have to be shippy even friend arguing bullshit is great
Idk im passionate about these two, friends or otherwise, they’re just fun and dumb and entertaining, im sorry
