"Who run Bartertown?"
2002-07-07 10:29:33 PM  
seriously, is this thing for real? why can't they take human waste and use it, too? or is all of the aspartame and neotame(?) too complicated for the power grid to handle?!!
2002-07-07 10:30:45 PM  
So who is watching Star Tek?

Why would the Federation assign their top captian to such a dangerous mission??


I don't get it.

Umm.. yeah! What he said! And what about all the corn too!
2002-07-07 10:32:06 PM  
Pancakes with shiat dressing!
2002-07-07 10:32:27 PM  
I don't see how shiat and piss can turn anyone on.

And I consider myself pretty freaky.

2002-07-07 10:35:09 PM  
You've got to be shiattin' me!!
2002-07-07 10:36:12 PM  
Two digesters will then produce methane to power engines to make electricity.

That is not a nice job to have
2002-07-07 10:39:26 PM  
Well I have to say it just shiatty this didn't happen to be crapped out sooner.

Darn shame that they can't harness all the hot air in here...
2002-07-07 10:43:32 PM  
Hee Hee. He said poop.
2002-07-07 10:45:34 PM  

Shiat happens.

2002-07-07 10:49:20 PM  
Is Britain part of the 3rd world now? Why is that woman harvesting wet cow poop with her hands? Is that really how they harvest cow poop? How many bowls of poop does it take to run the fridge for a day?
2002-07-07 10:51:56 PM  
(obvious) something smells (obviousity)

LongDuckDong: "Who run Bartertown?"

mad funneh.

Now I gotta go watch the movie again...
2002-07-07 10:54:12 PM  
IF we didn't have an extension of the Fossil Fuel industry representing us as "president" maybe our country would seek out creative and renewable sources of energy like this one.


Oh wait, I forgot, oil and coal will last for ever and ever and ever and never (ever ever) have any harmful effects--like asthma.
2002-07-07 10:55:24 PM  
Dennis! There's some lovely fith over here !
2002-07-07 11:11:32 PM  
In other news, property values downwind of Devon, GB plummet severely and inexplicably...

Oh yeah, and LongDuckDong I laughed so hard at that picture I almost made an energy contribution in my pants.
2002-07-07 11:15:53 PM  
Locobot, right on. Other harmful side effects include despot oil scum in Middle East funding terrorists.

Set up a poop power plant in the US. You'd have enough shiat in Washington to light the Eastern Seaboard forever. ;-)

How do you know he's King? He hasn't got shiat all over 'im.

The proper joke to make there would be, "That must be a shiatty job."
2002-07-07 11:28:14 PM  
Quick1 - I'm in awe of your superior humourosity
2002-07-07 11:37:14 PM  
And what does your daddy do Jimmy? He produces methane!
2002-07-08 12:41:40 AM  
Holy shiat!
2002-07-08 12:47:56 AM  
Need a "smelly" tag here...
2002-07-08 01:15:17 AM  
What a crappy idea! Notice that "Witness the Event" tagline at top? No thanks!
2002-07-08 01:29:41 AM  
It's a nice power station... a very nice power station...
FOR ME TO... wait... nevermind.
2002-07-08 01:41:48 AM  
Here's my crap. *Drives a dump truck over and dumps all the crap out*. Now you owe me 10 bucks >B-)
2002-07-08 01:59:40 AM  
Cool. shiat on oil, we got poop power now!

1334 times. Cool.

Dung-fuelled power stations are already popular in Germany and Denmark.

Yeah, thjose Germans are into Scat.

Am I the only one who finds the choice of picture strange? (A woman's hands in very soft, moist cow doodoo)

Pity that this probably wouldn't fly here. It'd be great for a state like NC, which has mucho large-scale industrial pig farming. As a homage to this, I offer this bit of dialogue:

Aunty Entity: We call it Underworld. That's where Bartertown gets its energy.
Mad Max: What, oil? Natural gas?
Aunty Entity: Pigs.
Mad Max: You mean pigs like those? Bullshiat!
Aunty Entity: No. Pig shiat.
Mad Max: What?!
The Collector: Pig shiat. The lights, the motors, the vehicles, all run by a high-powered gas called methane. And methane cometh from pig shiat.
2002-07-08 04:56:09 AM  
Why can't they use something *other* than their hands to pick it up?
Maybe a large vacuum cleaner or something...

And this form of energy STILL releases toxic gases into the atmosphere...
2002-07-08 04:59:47 AM  
All we need is another mismanaged BSE/FMD-induced mass slaughter of livestock and this project will go down the pan...
2002-07-08 09:18:06 AM  
I work at LG&E, the power company with its HQ in Louisville. We were recently bought by powergen, with the HQ in england. since that, they are going to turn a plant here in Kentucky into a chicken-shiat burning plant which basically works the same way. I have been laughing at that since I first heard about it
2002-07-08 10:26:55 AM  
7.7 million pounds for a power plant... comes out to about $11M American. This may just be me, but that sounds like a pretty cheap power plant.

If it actually works, more power to them. (No pun intended.)
2002-07-08 11:40:09 AM  
Kind of makes the whole purse from a sow's ear thing look kind of pathetic, eh?
