carbon di-fucking-oxide

Okay...it's really hot here on the East Coast (the better one) right now and its starting to bug me. I've hardly been outside for a few days except to workout (I actualy ran on a treadmill today!) which I have to do in the dark while fending off pedifiles that hide in bushes.

Yeah, thats kind of a diversion but I just want to take a moment to make fun of overprotective mothers who are convinced that if they let their kids outside at night they'll get raped or eaten. Maybe its just because I live in an exceptionaly boring suberb, but its really not that dangerous out so relax. Kids can deal with a little adversity, remember in your day when you'd get rocks thrown at your head just for fun. Just carry a knife.

Anyways, its really hot and I hate it. I'm blaming global warming 'cuz I'm a stereotypical sci-fear (hee hee) mongering liberal (ish). So yeah, I'm really angry with carbon dioxcide right now. I think the shadow government should collect it all and convert the atoms into useful ozone (O3) and huge piles of charcoal (which is carbon).

I say we boycott drugs!

Does that help?

...which is exactly why im gettin a Prius baby!!!!!!!

not only is it a SULEV (super ultra low emissions vehicle) which will reduce the deteriorization of your precious ozone layer and release less CO2, it also gets a kick ass 55 mpg, which means not only will i save big time on gas, but by not buying gas, i will not be giving my money to corrupt and unfair governments, thus, creating less terrorists!!!!

another thought I had today on the subject: the chemical reaction they use in engines- it can go two ways can't it? what if they made engines that could run on a compressed form of what cars emit and emit something cleaner or more natural? this way we'd be cleaning up the environment as we drive, and when it got too unbalanced in the other direction (which would take decades at least) we could just try and get people to switch back.

(ok wow that sounded really stupid in writing....it was worth a shot)

um....i say we legalize drugs. and hey, that's my over-protective suburban parent your talking about, so shut it! (but hold on...if there were rapists about wouldnt they be in corwded daylight areas where they can find people...not hiding in the woods at night?)

crap that was a long post

oh, and stop complaining you have air conditioning

The reaction that drives engines is combustion, which as far as I know can't be reversed. Even if it could, the reason it drives engines is that it is an exergonic reaction (meaning that it releases energy) so reversing it would require an input of energy (to restore the potential energy stored in the chemical bonds of the hydrocarbons) and therefor couldn't be used to power cars. Theoreticly, that could restore oil supplies but it wouldnt help since a lot more energy would have to be put back in than we'd get out (due to the 2nd law of thermodynamics).
Maybe we could invent a car that runs on drugs...

THE WEED MOBILE!!!!

...and the second hand smoke we emit could make everyone happy!
