Those pesky scientists, always getting up to something clever. Apparently scientists in the UK are developing a battery that runs on food scraps. They claim to be able to run “a 40-watt bulb for eight hours on about 50 grams of sugar.” Save your leftovers, people. When the oil runs out and the anarchy reigns, we’ll use them to microwave the giant rats we catch.

Just kidding about that last bit. Still, it’s a brilliant idea. About the food scraps I mean.
