I think shenanigans are definitely involved with cahoots.
And often in the company of rapscallions...
rapscallions and scallywags (if you're on the ocean)
Any room for rascals?
It's a big tent...why not?
Do we leave the never-do-wells outside in the cold?

Scientists discover plastic-gobbling enzyme that can break down trash in 24 hours: ‘Revolutionize how we deal with waste’ (msn.com)
Awesome discovery coming out of UT.
I can see a Sci-Fi movie coming.
UNTIL...it escapes containment and finds either newer cars OR the strip clubs.
Marvelous; how many of these crap deals do we have to go through before people learn that they are not fiscally reasonable and don't work - see also the wonderous bio-fuels plants.
Those plastic bottles can be reduced back to oil, carbon black, and methane gas, BUT it has to be done below below 500 degrees F. The wax on the bottles with gum up the process unless something is added to the feedstock like tires; then you need 85-90% tires to 10-15% bottles.
Only one process in the world has done this successfuly - successful as in both environmentally and fiscally.
Chop discovers creatures that will break down your trash overnite...
He'll disappear from the news (and probably the planet) soon.
Looking for a fixer upper???

These new TikTok "beauty filters" give me a really bad feeling, especially when I see how women react to them | Not the Bee
An ultra-realistic TikTok beauty filter is coming under fire — for being too good. The filter, which convincingly alters facial features to look more conventionally attractive and simulates a soft glam makeup look, has some users freaking out that it conveys unrealistic beauty standards without viewers realizing that the look comes from software.
This is crazy. More about this species at Britannica.com:

Macclesfield Canal at Astbury Congleton, England
This is a form of roving bridge (aka changeline bridge, turnover bridge, snake bridge) — it allows a horse towing a boat along the path to cross the canal when the tow path changes to the other side of the canal. A clever bit of engineering.
Changing towpaths without unhitching the tow line:
1. Failure to consider the issue
2. Tow line passing through a slot
3. Running the path under the bridge
4. Using a dedicated roving bridge
First it was snakes in the ceiling, now.....
