Superboat Burns Human Fat to Zip Around World



www.foxnews.com


A New Zealand-built boat that runs on biodiesel — and the fat of the captain —- is set to kick off an attempt to break the world speed record for circumnavigating the globe in a motorboat next year.

All I want to know is when will they make a "consumer-version" so I can zip around on my own fat and the fat of all my friends and family.

Very cool...

That's one of the coolest looking boats I've seen. I like the fact that it can "submarine" through big waves so it doesn't have to slow down as much in big seas. I'm assuming that would be some kind of ride.

So, 2 1/2 gallons of human fat gets you only 8 nautical miles.

It would take a whole lotta Soylent Green to get anywhere.

perhaps this is why americans are being fattened up by the corporations, though.

I guess this is one way to get the American obesity problem down. We just switch our navy over to this sort of propulsion and we're set.

That's one cool boat. Not what I expected though. I figured it'd have peddles.

He may need those paddles - and a crew of oarsmen. I mean, all the skipper got was 8 nautical miles from all the fat he could, um, "part with". I guess he can stop at every port along the way and visit cosmetic surgeons for some 'fuel'.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "...Fill 'er up with Ethel!"
