I was invited to see a guy called Dennis Lee this week.  He's supposed to be one of those free energy gurus.  You've heard the type.  They have this fantastic invention that would take care of all of our energy problems, but the government and big business has squashed him.

He has also invented a paint that would insulate the inside of your house, engines that run on 80% water (don't know how he mixed it with gas), cutting torches that used 80% water, laundry cleaners that use magnets instead of detergent (ionizes the water), and a paint that would melt ice and snow on contact.

He said the government had thrown him in jail for 2 years with no charges.

When I heard all this, I smelled a scam.  I didn't bother to waste my time.  Then I did an Internet search.  The guy is a total scammer, and he is looking for dealers.  His 2 years of jail was due to pleading guilty to 8 counts of a 47 count indictment in California.  He is banned in 4 states and has restraining orders in others.

So, when you see some of the solutions, they just might not be what  you bargained for.   ;)
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The Pits. A Traverse City grower reportedly sold 800 tons of dried cherry pits last year as an alternative energy source for home heating in wood stoves. The cherry pits from Traverse City area producers, reportedly sold from$135 to $250 a ton.
