We could eliminate nuclear and replace coal & oil burning power plants with Taverns.

I see a future for this technology.

I'm waiting for the Mr. Fusion engine promised at the end of the Michael J Fox time travel documentary "Back to the Future". Head scientist Doc Brown fueled his flying car with spoiled milk, egg shells and a banana peel.

Generators will surprisingly look like toilets in the future.

Sure, all you'd need is that electrolysis machine, the water filter, the gas cylinder, the liquid borax cylinder, and a generator that runs on hydrogen.

No problem.

Pushed, pulled, entered. electrolysis, are the key words in that article. Borax is significant as well. Physics. Stuff doesn't race around measuring and pushing itself automatically. Energy is being consumed during the process.

As a junior grade World War II in the Pacific history buff I read accounts of resistance in the Philippines and coast watcher islands where young men with strong legs were used to pedal bicycle generators that would power Hallicrafter short wave sets to send spy messages to Australia. I don't know what the transceivers demanded in watts of energy but there are accounts of natives getting so beat after several minutes of hard pedaling they literally fell off the bicycle and another jumped on and kept pedaling. Today's solid state stuff is a lot more efficient but still...

Buried cattle dung supposedly gets hotter than hell and produces methane.

But an untapped source is The Campfire.
Gather round and listen to tales of titanic fish that shook the hook and how many miles Mr. X gets with a gallon of fuel and that's worth several watts? A hundred?

Gives a whole new meaning to "piss on it".
