The Crapper Tank

A divice that burns up droppings into a smoke as power

The device would store up doo-doo in a tank until its big enough to burn into energy! (Gas mask not included)

       That's gonna leave a smell. Not a good one, either.

       Does it have to be big to burn? Is that the problem I'm having?

       Excellent, unfunny, idea. Oddly, yes, I think this is somewhat baked. Saw a program about a village in Africa where they used the leavings of the cows, people etc which was mulched into a big tank. Tank collected methane gas from the mulch giving the entire group 4-6 hours electric in the evening.   

       Sounds gross, but it was actually good; kids could read for school at night and still farm during day. The tank was located a bit out of the village. The villagers were paid a small amount for the leavings and could reclaim it after use to fertilize crops. <link>
