    Now that the high voltage problem is solved its time to put this baby on Kickstarter or GoFundMe and raise some money to get make this project a reality. One potential problem I thought could be an issue is the water. Not really a problem in most states but can you imagine the effect in drought stricken California of a few million people filling their tanks with water every day. Then last night I saw this video about a device that makes water from the moisture in the air. The one in the video makes up to 600 gallons a day but costs $70,000. But cars don't need anywhere near 600 gallons and if a much smaller device were to be installed on cars the price would become affordable soon enough because of mass production. It also solves the problem of where to refill while traveling. After all, when people stop buying gasoline all the gas stations will have to close down.

    It's called a dehumidifier. I used to get about a half gallon every couple days.

    it was more the pure vacuum he created more than his sewing thread filament if i recall. but like anything else. we've all had great ideas to some extent. never doing shit about it. the dude who overhears it, patents it and takes it to the bank is the actual smart mf. edison was a liar and a thief. but smart to be one.

    If Bear Gryll had had one of those on the raft he wouldn't have had to hydrate rectally

    I've also heard that the Wright Brothers weren't the first to fly an airplane and that Columbus didn't discover America

    And it wouldn't do much for the ratings if all he did was drink a glass of water.

    The second law of thermodynamics has not been solved. Reality has nothing to do with your fantasies.

    I have been on this world two days short of 63 years and one month.

    I made it that long without reading Hydrate Rectally in a sentence.

    Kind of wish I had made it a bit longer. Was not to be I guess. Thanks.
