William, I checked around that japanese water car and some reporters
believe [1] that this japanese car is nothing special. It seams that
is uses some sort of catalyst that is used during the driving and
needs to be replaced from time to time.

If they make a cheap and ecological catalyst that would be a
revolution. We would get a green eco-friendly car and that is cheap to
drive.

Still "Joe Cell" [2] seams not to be investigated by real scientists, too bad

Yeah, exactly. And if you buy in the next 4 hours, we'll include a
fantastic solar powered clothes dryer.

Careful - there are sound useful reasons for solar powered clothes driers
that go via electricity or steam first.


Jeeez, Alan. I'm impressed that you know that steam is a major source
for heating industrial dryers! Tip O' The Wayward4now Hat! Ric

p/s hot oil is more popular nowadays.
