Road Kill May Help Solve the Energy Problem

At least the German inventor who came up with a machine that produces cheap (less than a fifth what is paid at the pump there) diesel from a mixture of garbage and dead cats claims that all the animals he has used thus far were roadkill.

Yes, you read that right. Cheap diesel from garbage and dead cats. The inventor claims he has already used his homemade fuel to drive more than 100,000 kilometers.

Naturally, animal lovers in his native country are not amused. The German Society for the Protection of Animals claims federal law specifically prohibits dead cats or dogs from being made into fuel.

Hmm...I wonder what other weird things German law specifically prohibits...

Sheesh. This gives a whole new meaning to, "Put a tiger in your tank," doesn't it?

I wonder how far you could get in a car fueled by dead lawyers? Nah, they'd probably just gum up the engine.

Bumper sticker idea:
Got MEAT Gas?

Tigris Growlies: Actually this is a small scale plan that has been proposed byt the University of NH. All our sewage plants can be turned into biodiesel production facilities using oil producing algae. You would have a wide already in place distribution center that is decentralized over the country so no point will affect production overall nationally if there is some "crash" event. The big plus is easy potential to make all fuel consumption domestic within the countries borders...this would include all road traffic as well as electrical generation facilities. However...the DinoPetro Oil industry is so far resisting the idea of home grown fuel production, it will probably drag us over the edge with it when its time for extinction arrives.

Tigris, I think that University of NH plan is really crappy!



Of course, that is the whole point...

(Wondering how followers of the Flying Cat Avatar would feel about dead cat diesel...)
