    But... but... isn't the point nutrient production the point of having farms? You are just delaying the problem with that one.

    Oh, wait, I see. This will increase local crops at the expense of having 3rd world crops producing cheap fuel instead of their own food, just like biofuel.

    6 kW-h for a million usbux? I'm showing better than that with my salt water osmosis system. ( per calculations, that is)

    Oh - but about a tenth the energy density.

    Is there a market for models of hypothetical energy storage systems? If so, I'm there already.

    There seems to be an eternal demand for new junk news stories about them. If one could figure how to cash in on that one could avoid all the bother of actually building anything.

    I'm starting to think that the "news" is at least half-FOS.

    Perhaps a useful new invention would be a reliable device for indicating which half.

    Simple technology that seems stupid until you see something like this. The first time I saw one I recoiled automatically in horror.
