    I can remember being told a very long time ago, thet according to the laws of physics, under the right conditions anything will burn. "even Ice will burn if contained in the right ennviroment". Here is a guy that proved this by building a car the runs off of pure water.

    :bs2: But MY two inventions are surefire winners:
    1. Tap the energy from the all the burning souls in Hell!
    The fire is ETERNAL! Even if folks stop sinning today, the souls already there will provide plenty of fuel. I can't believe the Bible put this idea right in front of us, and we didn't see it. Color me embarrased (and rich).

    2. Too complicated to explain to you laymen, but it involves millions of dead dinosaurs and a very long period of time.

    This is the oldest con in the book.

    Interesting. Even if people say it would take more energy during the conversion process to split the H and the O up, who says that energy used for such a conversion has to be fossil fuel? They could hook it up to windmills, or hydro stations where all they would do all day is convert water into hydrogen. And water is much easier to transport that oil I would imagine.

    Yes, but Hydrogen is decidedly not easier to transport than oil.

    It takes more energy to split H2O into 2 H2s and an O2 than you would ever get in useful energy from just burning the H2 in the first place.

    It's far, far, far more efficient to just take the electricity from your hypothetical windmills and hydro plants and store it in electrical batteries, or just transmit it across power lines to where it could be used for better things than electrolyzing water molecules.

    Yes... and hydrogen is notoriously difficult to store for widespread commercial purposes. Highly corrosive and volitile... but so was gasoline when we first started using it on a mass scale.

    Another thing about hydrogen is that because it is such a tiny molecule, it tends to leak out of even the tightest containers, further compounding the long-term storage woes.

    Which is why they only gas up the shuttles just before the launch, not the day before.

    Disagree, selling creme promised to make your cock bigger was around first.

    When cars run on water becomes a big deal, I'm sure my e-mail will be flooded with the shit

    I invented a car that can run on baby seal blood, but everyone thought it was a bad idea.
