Excuse Me, Where Is the Men’s Fueling Station?

First we had the jet-powered bus. Now we have the poop-powered bug. The Bio-Bug is a British invention that runs on human waste. It appears that this is not yet self-propelling with the driver actually supplying the fuel but you can load up with waste from the local sewage works.

It turns out that the toilets of just 70 English homes can power the car for 10,000 miles. It is not clear if results will vary in other countries.

Of course, this makes accidents materially worse, but then again it gives people a feeling that they are contributing to the nation’s transportation grid.

Eventually, one can imagine a truly symbiotic relationship between driver and car.

  1. Ah but Pete,

    Would it give any more propulsion? Or would it be like…..well, maybe wearing…oh well….that all depends..

  2. W=c,

    The spider did indeed die. I’m not that much of a pacifist.

    The bite, however, lingers.

  3. It’s strange that this post has inspired my poetic sensibilities:

    A Bio-Bug Quatrain

    When yer engine starts to sputter,
    There’s no time to waste.
    Just pull yer drawers down—
    And fill ‘er up…post haste!

  4. haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, tooooooooooooooooooo toooooooooooooo funny…………………

    Buddha !
    did the spider die?

    feel better…

  5. Well Buddha,

    Good to see you and I hope that you are feeling better. I would suppose Milk of Magnesia would help clear the system quicker or you might try a suppository or a fleets….I wonder in the New Car of the Year Awards will be an Enema….

  6. I have a question.

    Is Ex-lax an appropriate fix for a clogged fuel line or does one call Roto-Rooter?

    Just curious.

  7. I wonder if the age of the vehicle has anything to do with the velocity of speed?

  8. So, if that car get in accident and the content get spilled, does the clean-up requires people to be certified in haz-mat? Ugh, no thanks, the last thing I want is to get in an accident with open wounds being splattered on with those fuel…

  9. Hope you’re better, taking care, Buddha.
    Hope the shit doesn’t hit the fanbelt, AY.

  10. Buddha,

    Check your email. I hope you get back soon. I hope you are gonna do better and quit being a recluse….

  11. AY,

    It’s not the horizontal that’s the problem. It’s the vertical. I’ve been sleeping a lot. In fact, as soon as I finish this chicken noodle soup, I’m back to bed.

  12. Dang, Pardon me?

    I should just hang it up and call it a day…that was just dandy…..

  13. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the Louisiana Recluse comes ah crawling out.

    So how are you Fat Green One that happens to be Horizontally Challenged…..
