Just think if you could run a bike on Lucky Lager. $4.50 a 24 pack for the 5 ouncers.



Or Steel Reserve, man that'd be like nitro...Brew 102 is defunct now, a shame. That's a 87 octane rating btw.

Screw that.



Fission/fusion reactors.



Build the Orion spacecraft and mine the asteroids.



How about some vision rather than bandaids that don't address the problem?

Dude, Brew 102 is only good for putting out campfires. Did you ever taste it?

I was thinking we could do wood powered steam; wood is a renewable resource like corn, and to make steam you don't even need to process it. Just light a match and off you go!

Well, let's see... I don't think a bushel of corn would spread very far, so maybe you can ride a bike on it for a few feet at most, and that's only if you have poured all the corn out on the asphalt and spread it out a bit. I think I will stick with riding on asphalt or concrete...

How much petroleum in the form of fuel and fertilizer does it take to make a bushel of corn?

I can't see much hope for change as long as apathy rules. Baxck to the 190 hp vs 178 hp endless debate. better yet helmet vs no helmet.

Actually, we're overdue for a synthetic vs. mineral oil debate...
