Ohio University researchers have discovered a way to create hydrogen from urine at a fraction of the cost of generating it from water. Thus, I suppose, if fuel cell powered cars become a reality, Starbucks could open branches next to the hydrogen fueling stations, thus providing a ready supply of urine.
Will urine futures start being traded on the exchanges with speculators trying to corner the market? Let’s see, if they forced the price of coffee higher this in turn could cut the supply of urine, thus driving urine prices higher too. Hmmm.
