Mr. Trash Wheel May Be Coming To Eat Your Garbage (Video)

We are actually more than a bit fascinated/entertained by watching work. Like all you city folk… Know how you take your lunch outside or by the big window and watch that new building construction across the street? Yep. Some folks even travel to gawk at a dam as part of a vacation trip. And while at college (The University Of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, ROLL TIDE), I would sometimes request window seating at a local by-the-river restaurant to have a view of the transport barges drifting by as I dined. Yep… even gazed at the garbage barges. Well, this is something like that. But the video on Mr. Trash Wheel above shows more than just an attractive contraption that draws a crowd as it works; it can do so sustainably, cleaning up the city while running on clean energy. Nice!

The adorable and insanely effective Mr. Trash Wheel may soon be eating your very own city’s trash.

Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water! (Video)

“It posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there’s a drought here in California, but because I co-founded; and we envision the day when everybody has access to a clean drink of water — and there are about 800 million people in the world who don’t — and so dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”

So…how about genuine toilet water? Ewww, right? Well, toilet water in the West is still cleaner than much water billions have to drink! Get it now? Great video showing Matt accepting the challenge…and challenging three friends to do the same. Clooney, Bono, Brady…it’s on you now!
