The Fatberg...

Sun May 24, 2020 8:53 pm

So looking at the Straight Dope I rediscovered Fatbergs, which deposits of fats, cooking oil, and grease, wipes, and other stuff that hardens up in sewers causing them to back up. Really expensive to remove...

Bright side. is that they can be used foe Biofuel... I thought everyone had the sense to not to pour grease and used cooking oil down the drain...

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

It's funny to think that 100+ years ago the fat used to be the most valuable part of an animal.
