I wonder if this is the future of our auto industry...

Interesting story of a museum that plans to convert the energy that can be produced from its visitor's waste to produce electricity.

Could you imagine how cost effective our cars would be if we could accomplish this, rather than using gas?

Think about those kids in the backseat on a long trip! The parents wouldn't complain at all. Little, complaing Jimmy, who has to go "potty," would be happily told to pee in the "energy" tank.

On a trip to Vegas, passengers would drink lots of water, and eat a complete meal (without bathroom trip) before the meal.

Just think of the money that could be made by some entrepreneur to design some kind of contraption to keep the "waste collection" process discrete.

I'll bet the seats would look a little different...

My cousin Lewis from Georgia could produce enough natural gas on his own in one trip to provide 3/4 of the energy requirements for the world for a year. I can vouch for that because I remember having to ride with the windows down in 20 degree temps to purge the natural gas he produced and to replenish the breathable air supply in the passenger compartment to maintain life support.
