>>Bacteria For Fuel? Maybe

(State College, PA) -- As oil supplies continue raise concern, scientists are working on a unlikely fuel source -- bacteria. Researchers at Penn State University are zapping bacteria that feed on vinegar or wastewater with electricity to test whether they could generate hydrogen fuel to power cars. The goal is to create a microbial fuel cell that can turn any biodegradable organic material into a zero-emission hydrogen gas fuel. Scientists are hoping the product replace hydrogen made from fossil fuels.

Banana peels did give movement to the O'Doyle Mobile.

I was one of those schmuck kids that bought "The Anarchist's Cookbook", and made "Bananadine", from the inside of banana peels. We bought 15 lbs of bananas, scraped the skins, boiled them, baked the paste and filled capsules (my bud worked in a pharmacy at the time and got a bag full of them) and ate them, only to get horribly sick an hour later. No hallucinating, what a load of shit. Turns out an easier method is to scrape a skin, let it bake in the sun, and roll it up in an E-Z wider, but what the fuck.

Ring Ring Ring, banana-phone (linger longer).
