You can't deny that which we all do.


We do it all day long, and even while we sleep.


A quart or more each day, every last one of us.




We need to capture all that methane and put it to good use heating homes and businesses, maybe even generate steam to turn turbines that generate electricity. Think of the industry that would spring up. People to manufacture the devices for capture of the gases, stores where one could purchase said devices, services that would collect the 'product', utilities that would generate and distribute the energy.


Collection devices could also be developed for cattle. Livestock are the single largest emitters of methane worldwide.


The impact in the economy would be quite positive, I'd venture to say.


Certainly not a pursuit of primary school boys.

Been quiet because I'm in the hospital long story that ends (so far) in 20 " of intestine being removed. No I'm waiting to fart so I can have water
Gosh Eddie. Not fun. And I know all about the "waiting to fart" business. Being able to fart after abdominal surgery is a major milestone! (And not understood by anyone other than those who have had abdominal surgery. )
I had high-fives from the nurses after my first fart post surgery. It took more than a week.

We do it, the primary school boys seem to have an obsession with talking about it. Therein is a difference.


The rest of your post about capturing it seems to be predicated on the idea that the proper way to use energy is electricity distributed through the grid after being generated somewhere else. That is, something which is made available for sale by one of the current suppliers. I have noticed this thinking in relation to solar power too. Must be converted to electricity to distribute for use in stand alone plug in appliances.


Why do we not think of a fridge as part of the house.
In summer powered by an absorption type chiller with the hot side outside in a panel catching the sun, the refrigerant piped to the cold cupboard inside, and in winter, when outside air is cold enough use that cold air piped into the house to chill the cold cupboard, and if it is cold enough this would even work for the freezer. So some of you guys would have virtually zero cost fridges for some months of the year. And have a relatively conventional arrangement, perhaps using the same equipment, for the times when pure thermals effects are not good enough. The fridge would then be three separate parts, which could be replaced separately - the cold cupboard, the outside kit, and the plumbing between them.


I have thought, during winter how ironic it is that I pay for gas to warm the house, including the kitchen where the fridge is. Then I pay for electricity to cool the fridge down to a temperature like it is outside for most of the winter. The only advantage is that the waste heat discharged by the fridge is delivered to my house and so slightly reduces the gas needed to get it to thermostat temperature.


Who loses in this model? The house removalists, who no longer need to shift the fridge, a significant volume of stuff for which they will no longer be able to charge for shifting.

In other news.
Our nearly 10 year old yellow lab broke a tooth chewing on an antler chew.
Extraction next week, with teeth cleaning included, $584.
Thankfully she has shown no signs of pain.
Bert, guess what time her appointment was yesterday.
2:30, I kid you not.

I dated a gal years ago whose father was a dentist. They had a Doberman. It liked to chew on rocks. Off course the rocks, being harder than the dog's teeth, had worn down the canines. So her dad, being a dentist and all, sedated the dog, and gave him gold crowns on all four teeth.


It was awesome when he barred his teeth and snarled.

Our family dentist lives in a subdivision next to ours.
I thought about asking him if he did side jobs.

I was about to comment on how you're smarter than that Polish man who went to his recently dumped ex-girlfriend/dentist with tooth pain and woke up from anaesthesia to find she had removed every single one of his teeth in revenge, but when I looked for a link to the story (which had been run by multiple reputable news outlets at the time!) it turned out the story has since been exposed as a hoax.

Leave it to reality to ruin all the funny stories ...
