    IOR landfills?

    I believe that only pyrolysis could work if the process was optimized.  Then will still end up with a bunch of glass melt in addition to the recovered hydrocarbon mass from the resin.  The other less friendly alternative to landfilling is waste to energy plants where it's ground up and then...

    SpaceX Sn9 and 10

    Murphy 's Law is typically cited as something like "If it can go wrong it will."  Although an alternate early version which has faded from use is that "IF anyone can do it wrong, he can".

    Trumpeachment Part Deux

    At some point Pelosi is going to need to get on with actually conducting the People's business instead of her own, and that of her "con$tituency".  Certainly a poster child for term limits and a deep forensic audit.  How many more years of Waaah Waah Trump?
