I imagine that giant catfish the world over will be attacking humans every chance they get now that we have offended them by killing there deity. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Mekong delta…

We dig Lincoln up, cover him with copper wire, surround his grave with strong permanent earth magnets. Hook some wires up and let him twirl. My simple calculations show that one single “Lincoln” unit could produce as much as 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year. Continue reading Lincoln to Power the Future
