It's no Bruno Mars, but I thought this was an interesting read...

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/16/scientists-accidentally-create-mutant-enzyme-that-eats-plastic-bottles

...the practical applications of this are amazing.

Not the least of which being we're now one step closer to creating fantasy-slimes that can instantly eat through people's clothes.

Oh, wait. >.>;; I mean, recycling...of the Earth's...waste plastics...um, yeah.

Haven't even really nailed 3D-printed housing and we've already got termites for them.

Nah it really is exciting. I know some care must be taken when transplanting species, but I wonder about letting the actual bugs lose in our landfills, and if we can genetically modify the bugs to have the superior enzyme.

Imagine the bugs being able to crawl through the tiny little pathways in garbage, into trash bags and the like. It'd be great if they could and would eat the trash bags too.

It would be mimic_irl.
