I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but with plasma arcs

Ok, so you've heard of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, right? So, can you do this with industrial processes? I want you to connect 'Plasma arc' and 'Tropicana juice plant'. Ok, here's the solution: (From Slashdot.)

Geoplasma is planning to build a power plant in St. Lucie County, Florida that will generate electricity by vaporizing landfill trash and sewage treatment plant sludge with plasma arcs. It will be the first plant of its kind in the USA and the largest in the world. The power plant is expected to destroy 3000 tons of garbage, generating about 120 megawatts of electricity per day. The plant will also supply steam to a nearby Tropicana juice plant.
