Someone is going to make a fortune off of this! But ... they’ll probably piss it all away.

Four African girls have created a generator that produces electricity for six hours using a single liter of urine as fuel.

We finally have a good use for that unending stream issuing from Washington.

The sewer lines go right to the power plant. Obama voters might actually become useful.

P power is intriguing, but I’d want to know if it consumes other material such as zinc metal. There’s no need to use P if its power is really coming from the consumption of an easily oxidized metal.

You're confusing urine with methane...

just sayin.

The whole, what comes out of Washington.

The end result is we get pissed of, or is is pissed on?

Perhaps a duality of outcomes.

None of which are good for us/US

Well, you need less that 1.5v to power it, (and they are in Africa) so you could use a photovoltaic cell.

Obama made aqueous chemistry exempt from conservation of energy laws. Didn’t you get the memo?

Now, I am not going to read the article yet.

I have to guess, first.

Is it a urine powered water wheel?
