anti-gravity custard-filled, genetically engineered perpetual motion device

Now with nanotechnology!

Genetically engineer some super-bacteria to metabolize starch from alcohol. Feed them some beer. Mix the starch with water. This is fuel, buffer, and coolant. Inside a tank of this stuff, use the heat from the metabolism process to constantly churn the beer-custard mix. Design the container so that it circulates in a consistant pattern. Put nano-particles of magnets into the churning froth. Use them to operate an ion engine that sprays ionzed beer. Use gyroscopes to keep the spray(jet) pointing toward the ground.

Now, the only question is how to get unlimited free beer. I leave that minor detail to my devoted readers.

       The choice of category is simple: [Voice] is amalgamating all of the HB's despised fantasy technologies and unprovable scientific theories into one idea in order to attract bones, just as a troll might. At the same time he's acknowledging this in the category to poke fun at those that use these technologies in their ideas, whilst winking at the rest of us.   

       [Voice] you really should have included RFID tags.

       Garr.

       Here's a bun, although you left out the LED sign.   

       Poor genetic engineering. Nobody knows how computers work anymore yet people are still allowed to use those in inventions. And both are pervasive technology.   

       Anyhow. I am currently drinking home brewed beer so I don't really have a lot to say, other then its tons better to drink it then read about it.

       you also forgot to include a "let's all" philosophy rant to the package. rework and return by friday.

       sp. consistent, ionized   

       [mylodon], though nobody knows *exactly* how computers work any more, that doesn't stop almost normal people from doing innovative things with them during their regular working day. Consequently, those people can reasonably speculate about realistic new applications of existing computer technology.   

       The same cannot be said of genetic engineering.

       does it poop out custard?
quantum_flux, Oct 24 2007
  

       I'm against pooping out custard, so.... [-]

       [+] for fusing several of the HB's enemies into a hybrid beast. Let's see how it turns out.

       This is similar in sentiment to two cups of jam and bees.

       This perpetual motion machine will need 'priming' with an energy input from somewhere - how about a gym machine?

       Hope that's what you wanted.

       (-) I wonder... what if you had *two* of them?
jutta, Oct 25 2007
  

       Ah, a huge improvement.
theleopard, Oct 25 2007
  

       HAHAHA!
k_sra, Oct 25 2007
  

       You forgot the piezo-electric devices.   

       Or is that too 2006?
dbsousa, Oct 25 2007
  

       You totally missed to incorporate time travel to your machine, honey...(then, hours passed by...)   

       We should have already brought this fire of your genius to our naked ancestors and be their gods, and should be living immortals this first wedding anniversary day darn you completely forgot! Drunken moron!   

       --------the wife said.

       [-] Like this.
Wrongfellow, Dec 22 2010
  

       Hang on. This idea is totally without foundation.   

       Surely, you need to start by pointing out that a team in West Samoa has found that iodinating starch renders it 400 times sweeter than sugar, and that this can be used to stabilize it against digestion whilst discourging paedophiles?
