One of the best comedy bits I've seen in a long time.

For a moment or two, I thought it was a Monty Python sketch!

I found this at the same place. Is this a scam, or a real advance in technology?

running electricity through water breaks the molocules apart into hydrogen & oxygen. These can then be burned. I remember doing "experiments" along these line way back in my junior high school science class.

The torch is a new (at least I haven't heard of anything like it) application of the technology, not a new technolgy.

It takes more energy to break the molecule bonds than you get from burning the hydrogen.

Google "HHO gas". It's just another scam.

Did you catch the part about running the car for 100 miles on four ounces of water. Then after that the news story says he doesn't have a car that runs only on water.

It can be convenient if you need hydrogen and/or oxygen and have plenty of electricity handy (for industrial processes for example, especially if demand is unpredictable; it can be more practical to make your own on the spot).

But yeah, it's an equation that always comes up in red numbers energy-wise.
