Self Sufficient


“Uh, hi. I’m Biofuel.”

“Biofuel, huh? And what can you do for us?”

“Well, I, uh, I…excrete a liquid that can power any internal combustion engine.”


“You know…urine. I can pee in the gas tank of any car and it will go.”

“…gas or diesel?”

“Either. Ethanol, too. Doesn’t work with natural gas, I guess ‘cause it’s a compressed gas and not really liquid.”

“Huh. Ok. Um, how much do you…produce?”

“Depends on how much water I drink, but usually half a gallon a day.”

“Hmm…and can you do anything in a battle situation? Project this in a fiery stream, maybe?”

“Oh, no. Geez, that sounds like it would hurt!”

“So, you…go…in a gas tank. That’s it?”

“Just about. I thought I could help with the team vehicle or something.”

“Uh, not really, we use a fusion powered hovercraft. Listen, I’m sorry, but I don’t think you’d be a very good fit at this time. But, hey, at least you save at the pump, right?”

“Ah, sure. Thanks for your time.”
