Wet ones of ass production

Expiring European patent:A device for collecting flatus gas from a human or animal subject, the device comprising a gas-tight collecting tube … for insertion into the rectum of the subject and retaining means comprising a pair of O rings … locatable in the subject’s inter-sphincter groove….”

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this is not this old fart’s idea of “in the groove.” Maybe you can sell it to Jumpin’ Jack Flash.

    I think I’d rather contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer.

    How well does this gas burn as fuel?

    Methane is equivalent to 120 octane, but collected in this form the impurities (is it still a gas if there are lumps in it?) may be detrimental. It is common practice for municipal sewage treatment plants to run their pumps off sewer gas-fueled spark ignition converted diesels. I did some tooling development for Cat Lafayette for the spark-ignition cylinder heads for their really big diesel engines.
