The Best Use of PVC Since ...

Another newspaper generously and quite unexpectedly weighed in on our desalination project. The City Link, one of South Florida's A&E weeklies, gave us this Resounding Endorsement:

SUCCESSFUL: Two Florida Atlantic University engineering students' realization of a device that will create cheap, drinkable water for Third World countries. Using PVC pipes, Eikei Martinson and Brandon Moore cobbled together the gadget from inventor Michael Levine's drawing. The desalination device has been named a finalist in the national Collegiate Inventors Competition. This may be the best use of PVC pipe since the bong.

Say it with me, readers: there ain't no such thing as bad publicity.
