The fuel of the future?

This vid has been floating around the internet recently, take a gander...

Water Fuel


The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.

This guy can be a billionaire, I bet you some oil company bought his invention and are hiding it or something. This can change the way we live.

Saw it a few days ago on another forum. Pretty cool stuff.

I wonder how the performance of the car is affected.

My only question is where all the electricity comes from if he's using it in a car, and how it is that more energy is created by the burning of the HHO than is used in electricity to turn it into HHO. Unless that process is more than 100% efficient, I don't see how a water-only engine is possible without frequent recharges.

Yeah, I don't get how it works either you would think it has to be 100% efficient, which is impossible... CrAzY!!!!

thats impossible.
That guy is spliting Hydrogen gas from water and igniting it in a controled flame using electricity. Well where does that electricity comes from? Fossil fucking fuels. Yes, ladies and geeks, We're back to fossil fuels.

Actually, he is doing electrolysis which is an endothermic reaction, meaning the system takes in more energy that it puts out. I'm sure to get his blow torch as hot as the sun Con Ed is the one who is getting rich.

BTW...to put this technology in a car you would need a hummer. beacause all the parts for the electrolysis would need alot of fucking space and a big eneough vehicle to carry te extra wieght. Also you would need 4 oz of water for the power source or the fuel cell, but you would also need at the same fucking time 12 gallons of gasoline just to power the batteries and provide energy to activate the fuel cell.

Energy Engineering Rule #1: Hydrogen, as a Fuel Cell, is only a "carrier" of energy and not a fucking source!

I spent an entire semester learning that shit! And no oatmeal eating grandpa with an '84 ford wagaon and a lot of damn space in his garage is gonna make me give back my A+ and my fucking tuition money...

by the way hydrogen ONLY becomes a source of energy when it provides a large fucking release of energy from fusion AKA combining the individual atom of Hydrogen and it's rare isotope Tritium to get another powerful isotope called fucking Deuturium and a freed Neutron!
Nuclear Fusion:


Nuclear Physicists call that release of energy from fusion, "GOD's Orgasm"

In fact Nuclear Fusion is what creates the stars, suns, planets, matter (this will be us and our fucking BMWs) and the foundation for all radiation and energy in the universe. The Big Bang is suspected to have also happened in a similar way, fusion initiated it and the weak and strong forces (with gravity and electromagnetism doing so later on) guided it to become the universe we see today



Nuclear Fission is what we use now as Nuclear power and bombs. That is when you rip apart a Uranium atom to get alot of dangerous shit (fission product) and a little bit of energy (that fucking free neutron) in the process!

Ladies and Geeks, I present to you Nuclear Fission:


what that old bloke is doing is not any of this...and anyone can do that shit with a lot of time, electricity and a 3rd grade chemistry book.
bah....

Call me a liar...BMW's been doing this for a while guys (not that I would know or anything)
They call it their CleanEnergy Program...the first Hydrogen Car was a 750hL
