LR, I think Wallyworld stock just dropped several percent, just thinking about you as a greeter!



I'm gunning for a real hole in the market: cart pusher! Now they have those cool R/C cart mules!

Carbs have been outlawed by the EPA. You'll have to have a high-pressure fuel pump installed in your groin to feed the common-rail injectors.

So, to conclude, no one has come up with a really working solution to an alternative energy source for personal transportation.

I read a Yahoo blurb that was quite interesting. Around a week ago or so some college brains have taken aluminum "pellets" and gallium (i think) combinded them with water to make hydrogen. The reaction between the two compounds and the water apparently work and can power small engines (lawn mowers, chainsaws and stuff).

That said: as technology advances it's possible to buy these two items "off a self" add them to water and produce hydrogen to power varoius things. All we need now are recyclers that instantly wash, crush and compress aluminum into pellets outside of every gas station in North America. I expect it around 2015 or so. Happy riding.
