Idea came whilst eating a bad batch of calamares: How about replacing the rubber components in car suspension with over cooked calamares or snails? Not only would the physical attributes be very similar (rear roll bar bushes are about as chewy as the squid I had last week), but these items could be sourced
without the use of expensive hydrocarbons, reducing our reliance on petrochemicals in these troubled, uncertain times. It would certainly allow the Italians to make something useful for once....Ance the car is scrapped, the organic bushes can be fed to pigs or re-cycled via the local italian eateries... It'd save a mint on the scrapping of cars...
