    New Hybrid Corn Produces More Gas

    By STAN JEFFERSON, Disassociated Press Writer

    BAKERSFIELD, CA. ¬-- A farmer in Bakersfield California has come up with a new hybrid by crossing corn with pinto beans. Julius Marx calls his new plant Beorn.
    “It provides a significant increase in crop yield for corn,” Marx said. Industry leaders are excited about the new hybrid. Alternative fuel researcher Larry Feingold sees a real future for Beorn. “This new corn has a great potential for producing more gas,” Feingold said.

    The problem with these kind of solutions is that it requires a huge amount of land to meet the demand. What would be better if it worked on trash or discard. Or if it worked on something abundantly available, cheap to process, and with a fairly clean byproduct. Like Hydrogen or solar energy. Although neither of these are easy to process in an efficient way.

    Additionally, now you're feeding into two very large and influential lobby groups (corn and energy). If the two merge it could potentially hold our government captive to their influence, but I'll stop this part of the conversation here citing the 'no politics' rule.

    And I'm sure a hybrid of corn and pinto beans produces more gas. Was I too subtle or is it just not funny?
    There are other hints here but I can't tell you everything. :scowl:
     
  9. These were all my first thoughts as well.

    I have experienced power equipment failure recently in the form of corroded fuel systems, which causes a green buildup of gunk caused by the ethanol in gasoline.

    I say save the beans and corn for food and drill baby drill for more quality motion lotion.
     
  11. Yup. Who needs that pesky clean environment, and all the wildlife (the nuisances that THEY are) when we can simply destroy everything with an oil slick. Maybe we can drill in my back yard. That way I won't have to cut the grass or trim my hedges anymore... or deal with seeing those ugly deer, rabbits, ducks, etc. back there. Coat 'em with crude. That'll learn 'em!!!

    Kill them all we say! :rollno:

  17. Beans and corn give me gas... This seems legit!
     
  18. ...but does the corn come out whole in the exhaust?
     
  19. Further research is required. I will stop at a taco wagon and find out.
     
  20. Excellent! Please report back. Oh, and, pics or it never happened. :bag:
