    No, you cannot.

    You can, actually. It just costs more to extract the energy from the
    (hydrogen in the) water than you get back in power, so there's no gain from
    using it.

    Well, you cannot run the engine on water instead of gasoline.
    Water or its vapours do not burn from a ignition spark or high
    pressure + temp in diesel engine.

    What you try to describe is running a car on a mixture of hydrogen
    and oxygen not running it on water.

    I think you listen to Obama's "yes we can" too much, Tegger :))

    "Yes we can" screw you over.

    "Change" back from your dollar

    "Hope" we didn't blow this one

    The RMS Titanic sank on April 15th. US income taxes
    are due on April 15th. Coincidence? I think not.

    Right, it's all Obama's fault. How long before you start calling it
    the Obama Depression?

  7. He may have stalled any depression but surely has planted the seeds for
    hyper-inflation ala Carter...

    That's why I said, "(hydrogen in the) water...".

    I'm really not happy with many of the bailout elements but I just
    don't know what else I would do. Could we let the "too big to fail"
    corporations fail? I hear lots of complaints but don't see much
    offered in the way of alternatives that make sense to me.

    We won't get inflation until people can afford to buy things. We can
    worry about it then.

    We have a system where I can't get more than 2% lending money (buying
    a CD), but no one seems to be able to borrow money. What we have is a
    very broken system.

  11. Right now, that sounds pretty good.
