    *** South Korean Tech Breakthrough Could Change Biofuels Forever ***
    Key part:
    ^^^ So far, however, biofuel just hasn’t been as efficient or affordable as it needs to be to be adopted on a wide scale. A breakthrough like this, however, could go a long way toward tipping the scales toward a greener future. ***
    Up till now, none of the hyped stuff has worked out. I’ll be surprised if biofuels are ever as inexpensive as synthetic liquid fuels.

    *** Hawaii Telescope Project, Long Disputed, Will Begin Construction ***
    The presence of 13 telescopes already on that “sacred” mountain makes a mockery of the religion claim. 72% of the state’s citizens have no problem with another glass eye. And the legal objections are a total joke.

    *** Florida city blasts Baby Shark song to drive away homeless from waterfront ***
    Despite the existence of some other dirt-ball states, Florida tops the list of places I don’t want to live. And with any luck at all, I’ll never visit the place again.

    *** These valuable pennies are worth up to $200,000—and they might be in your pocket ***
    Pure clickbait. Though some 1943 copper Lincolns were minted, the chances of finding one today would be in the range of winning the Powerball two weeks in a row. 544 million of the 1969-S cents were made, and since both individuals and central banks have been removing pre-1981 cents from circulation (Copper!) the odds are once again in Big Lottery territory.
