Headline of the day, surely?

“..Biodiesel from liposuctioned human ass-fat powers race boat..!”

Xeni Jardin:

Here’s some video from a Current TV segment about a biodiesel boat race to circumnavigate the globe. The boat featured in the video runs on a mixture of fuel from various sources — 4 gallons of the stuff was produced from liposuctioned butt blubber (a hundred grams of that came from the captain’s own backside). Welp, there’s a renewable fuel source America has plenty of. Here’s a blog post with more info. (Thanks, Jay)
