it does exist. the idea being that certain appliances could be run on bio-fuelcells that run on flies or mice. part genius, part dr. frankenstein, i love it.

Flies you say? Wow, finally a use for the clusterflies that were imported here and have become quite a nuisance by the literal ton. (seriously huge biomass here, probably rivals that of the ants by this point). I have always been amazed by their limitless energy and durability. Thing is they eat pollen, not meat. Well their larvae eat meat (worms - the reason they were imported). I suspect the clusterfly pollen consumption competition as a factor in domesticated and wild bee population declines.

I could be rich! Rich I say! Muahahahaha!  ;D :crazy2:

Forget flies and mice.  These would be great for disposing of my enemies and saving money on electricity at the same time. ;)
