Pumpkins. Random. Projects. That's what it's about.
October is "make an awesome pumpkin that takes an eternity to finish but is fun to make and admire afterwards."
Mostly you'll see random projects I do. Whatever involves me creating something, even if it's just an idea.

My Idea to Solve the Plastic-in-the-Sea Problem
Whenever I see any article about the plastic in the ocean, I say the same basic thing: Make a dozen giant blenders, dump it all in the blenders and make a powdery smoothie.
Plastic plastic everywhere. Over five trillion pieces floating in the ocean, to be exact. And together, they weigh over a quarter of a million tons. The findings were published in PLOS ONE this week.
Jennifer FulkThings would break down much faster if there was a giant blending facility that would first turn all that into powder. Watch as the Blendtec Blender turns a Chrome Notebook into powder to see what I mean:http://youtu.be/gOO1Z4u2Aq4?list=UUnFP0IU4gpnmcLnVzDLUtfw . But with the powder, it shouldn't be dumped into the ocean. It should be thrown into an active, flowing volcano. All that would be melted down in seconds. That, or we try to recycle that powder, melting it down to be reborn as the things they used to be.
