    If we could harness all the hot air from politicians, we would have no NEED to burn fossil fuels again ! Everything could be powered by thermal dynamics.
    Wouldn't THAT make the Bunny-Huggers happy (probably not, they'd find something else to whine about)

    Ant the politicians would also add moisture to the existing air.....

    we need to think about this a bit :headscratch:

    My perpetual motion machine is based on captured and recycled flatulence. Which is actually better than a politicians hot air.

    That would have been SUPER back in college....a never ending source of supply if you will !
    Only problem would have been regulating it to a useful level.:dunno:

    Who've you been talking to. In college, that was my super power. I discovered that a small bowl of yogurt could keep me percolating for days. So did my fellow dorm members.

    Yogurt never had that effect on me.
    A sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onion, & green pepper pizza and a 6 pack, however......

    Never thought about it like that before, but it does make sense. Something to get things started until the natural fermentation takes over. A booster if you will ;)

    I'm trying to get a patent on a strain of flatulent Lactobacillus paracasei. They can increase your methane production, in most cases, by up to 40 percent.

    If you can patent that, I've got enough contacts that would be interested that we can BOTH get rich ! ;)

    We could market it as a brand of 'energy creating' probiotics. I'm working on a name. Any ideas? :rofl:

    Well, to market it to college students, we could go with "Frat Flat", or for graduate students, "Grad Gas".
    To the general public I'm not so sure, that will take some more thought, as we need to make it acceptable to all 27 genders out there right now.....something along the lines of "Thunder Water"
    add 15 grams of sugar per serving (not high fructose corn syrup) and sell it as an energy drink ?

    Here's my best three (and don't ask about the losers):
    Max Flatch
    Lasting Adora (say it out loud three times, it gets funnier)
    Methane Magic (not an air fresher, but a crowd clearing device).​
    Very visceral. I like it (except when it happens to me).
    Sugar you say!! Then, sugar it is.
    Genius!
    Derivative ... establishes closure. Excellent. Uses an existing memory loop. Repeat if necessary, eh?

    "Lasting Adora" has a nice ring to it ! That just might work !:headscratch:
    Do we still have anybody in Marketing to czech if it's infringing on anybody else ?

    My earliest citation of that was in a Three Stooges episode. We'll have to check and see if it's public domain yet.

    Here's one I'll bet you've heard....

    Maybe that's how Albert V managed to survive.
