euchcar My friend Doug Pressman sent me this story from cable TV and news conglomerate Discovery, headlined “New Car Engine Sends Shock Waves Through Auto Industry.”

Problem: It turns out that that “Car Engine” is actually merely a still-hypothetical battery charger. (Note: As usual, you must read the comments to grasp the facts even here.)

As one commenter at the second story link aptly says, “There is one sure sign that this is a scam: they need government money to produce the prototype of something that would make its designer a billionaire.”

Meanwhile, it won’t be long before they start promising that God Himself will breathe fuel into your tank. It’s either that, or face the facts about capitalism. “Blow right in here, O Lord!”
