FTA:
Typical laundry detergents today come in liquid form inside plastic jugs or in fluid-filled pods.

How is this new? Have people forgotten that you can buy powdered laundry detergent... that comes in a cardboard box?

Sadly, Kristi Noem is still coming here, around the corner from me, at The Villages, Monday. I'm sure some retiree MAGA fanatics here will buy a few books from her.

Governor Noem dropped her book tour after meeting with Kim Jung-il and another potential running mate for the failed former president could not answer a simple yes or no question on if he’d accept the results of the next election.

I've seen the Northern Lights on several occasions and they never fail to impress. Of course you can't dance to them like you can Jimmy Cliff's Reggae Night(s).

That underwater bicycle desperately needs a toroidal blade. It doesn't seem to be that effective, even in their best videos. I'd love for something like that to be a reality though. I believe the true breakthrough in high-speed, human-powered, long-distance water travel will involve some form of hydrofoiling. Maybe something like a bicycle (this) but only the blade and hydrofoils are in the water to reduce drag.

If I won a major lottery jackpot I'd absolutely buy a hydrofoil and a hovercraft for sure. Never ridden on either but always wanted to. They are still two of the most amazing vehicles ever made IMO.

Tide launches new form of laundry detergent without any plastic — here's how it could rattle the industry

That's actually pretty cool. I've tried most brands of detergent for my workout and gardening clothes. Tide really does work best. Most others don't remove the odor. In addition, Tide dominates the list at Consumer Reports. It will be interesting to see how this one performs, but it's neat that they pulled out the stops to make it so environmentally friendly.
