Welcome to the 21st Century

No matter how small we make our buses, we'll still have to fuel them. And lord knows that our increased efforts to use biofuel has played hell with the availability of corn.

But a Purdue University researcher thinks that we can get get more biofuel from yeast. Specifically, "mutant yeast." I don't imagine that this will end well. Genetic manipulation, mutants, people rendered into biofuel, SOYLENT GASOLINE IS PEOPLE!

Sorry, got a little carried away there. Still, I'm proud of myself for making it through the entire post without making some kind of monster vagisil joke.
