Energy From Space Invaders

Harnessing UFO Power, Using Harnesses

If you're abducted by aliens as often as I am, you've considered using them as a free energy source. Wind a rope around a flywheel, geared to a generator. 4 trillion miles of rope should be plenty. Tie the other end of the rope to your waist, or to the UFO if it has an attachment point. You'll generate power with each abduction, by induction.

       you're just *asking* to get your teeth drilled you are.

       :-) How lucky! We have 4 trillion miles of fishing line rope left over from blackholeapult. Turns out we couldn't use it due to weight restrictions and have switched over to nanotubes.

       When those little guys figure out that you're running your stereo off their Abductotron, they're gonna make you pay in kind. And that means probing, and then some more probing.

       The real trick is to figure out a way to cook pork chops by getting anal-probed.

       Just eat them raw beforehand.

       Why don't you try to purchase their wireless power?

       Aliens. That explains our present condition.

       Somewhere, on another distant planet, there is some sort of communication starting, "If you've abducted [Amos Kito] as often as I have, you've considered using it as a free energy source..."

       And they said privatization of U.S. utilities was a bad idea.

       Personally, I avoid the whole alien-abduction thing by wearing my aluminum foil deflector beanie. If they can't listen to my thoughts, they don't know I'm here.

       Unless they monitor the HalfBakery, then the jig is up.
