I Like These Bugs

Usually I am looking for ways to get rid of bugs. Fortunately these aren't as annoying as the common house fly. What would you think of a genetically altered bug that excretes crude oil. As long as you keep them happily fed they will produce this much sought resource. Can you imagine eliminating the need to drill for oil with such a bug.
It doesn't sound quite as exciting when you realize you will be filling your tank with bug crap. The nice part is these guys don't need to eat food crops to give us this much needed fluid.

Scientists find bugs that eat waste and excrete petrol

As great as this news is, how come I had to read it in a foreign paper? It seems that our media is failing to report on the many great energy alternatives that our waiting in the wings. The goal is to promote the gloom and doom and not give America hope as we go into the political season. This one is in our own backyard. They have NO excuse.

Finally, a valid use for the pests! I know they are necessary for life, etc., but the girl in me still goes "IcKkk" everytime I encounter the litter "buggers." ;)
