I love that workers at England's Yorkshire Water are pouring large quantities of bacillus bacteria to help work through the extra fat built up in the sewer system after the [skipwords]Christmas[/skipwords] season. The fat was previously cleared using high-pressure water hoses, but it was found that the bacillus was more effective. It's a great example of biomimicry — our bodies naturally harness hundreds of different kinds of bacteria to break down food within our bodies.
