And now for something completely different…

Possibly the most unusual Airstream ever:
HowStuffWorks "How Fuel Cells Work"

I proposed a human waste methane gas generator on another airstream forum. the post was deleted and I was threatened with banishment. ;(

Seems the moderator there did not have a sense of humor. I thought the big appliance players, Dometic or Suburban would get on board and design new appliances that ran on methane. Or at least a methane converter for existing ones.

I think I went awry when I described making a slurry of waste in my garage and measuring my daily input. I didn't really do it but I thought i was on to an energy breakthrough that should shared in the public domain. i can't selfishly keep these ideas to myself.

Methane gas generators are not new technology. I guess when it's cow waste it's a different story.

Imagine the savings on fuel! Never dumping the black tank is just the cherry on top.

You can thus title a thread without incorporating the the 'and now for something completely different' nude organist? Doesn't quite work right that way in my mind...
