    Something i've thought about are cars powered by our own waste. They're already doing it with pig waste... why not use our own... reduce, reuse, and recycle.

    interesting idea


    biomass is pretty esthetically disgusting though. i'd rather use waste veg oil than human feces. just think of the odor. ugh!

    Asthetics aren't important.

    I think it sounds like a good idea.

    hm, the only exposure i've had to biomass was a project a classmate did in science years and years ago, and it STUNK! bad.

    so, is this fecal waste fuel composted first? i need more information before i start to turn my nose up.

    Or we could just ride a bike or walk. It would solve both problems with one solution! Yay!
