A heat exchanger apparatus that fits on the forehead of theologians * when they are feeling a bit under the weather, due to an infection from germs.
The apparatus conveys the fever heat to a Sterling engine, which generates electricity.
Theogermal units can be arranged in parallel, series might
be a bit iffy.
* preferably Anglican as they aren't that prone to violence

||It's been a while since I've seen a good Sterling 1/2bake.
||This is necessary because you cannot utilize the
blazing fires of hell, although Samuel Clemens aka
Mark Twain reported about a nice try at it.
||I've also been told of Rabbi Meimon who at a
fundraising dinner with people of the justice
department in Warsaw told of a case that reached
the heavenly court. Due to the heat and flames, a
large crack appeared on the wall between heaven
(the garden of Eden) and hell (the Gehenom and
Sheol). The heavenly people said it was clear it was
the other sides fault, with their fire getting out of
hand. Obviously, they should pay for the repairs.
||There was a long discussion, 7 days and 7 nights and
finally the Gehenom won.
||The crowd asked: Wait, why!
||Oh. Said the rabbi, I thought its obvious. All the
lawyers are on that side.
||How is this offensive? I'm a devout Christian and find
this quite funny.
