    This poop-powered bus story is fuel for so many jokes, I don't know where to begin...

    Regardless, what do you think of this alternative energy source? Super efficient, or just taking things too far?

    I'd rather see the leftover food go to something like this than just become part of the giant hill of a landfill. As for the poo, well, why not use it as well? As long as they don't expect me to start bagging it.

    I have to admit though, I scanned a headline about this bus and I pictured it running off of the poo that was deposited in the bathroom of the bus. This isn't JUST poo, but I like that everyone's billing it as a poo-powered bus.
