BioFuel: fuel cells of lesser god? Answered

I was just reading one of the biochemistry articles I have, and noticed that urea, the main componant of urine, has an extra, and not so tightly bound hydrogen atom attached to it.  

I am thinking renewable fuel cell fuel here, but other then smell, are there any other draw backs to using this?  I mean, I realize the salt content may or may not be a bit hard on metal parts etc. ..  Feed back welcome !

But if we hobble this now we could become lame and need put down. I'd hate to be stuck like glue for only horseing around.

Well if this isn't dressage(d) up a bit more, we may fall into the "hazard" and get all cavaletti about it.

Since we are at a full trot, the gallop polls may indicate that we should pull in the reins on this one.

Yeah, I am sure neither one of us want to become a gelding, because of this lame discourse, and "lunging" pun-ology. Do you think you can wean yourself from this? ;-)

NPR scientist said they make Oxygen and Hydrogen for lab experiments.
No more ice crystals passing by the down camera.

Years ago NASA would video the world as they orbited and show it on my TV.
Then the high speed thingy zapped past the camera and NASA said it was
ice or any other thing but what it looked like, and my pleasant observation
of our world from orbit was cut right out of my tax dollar.

You know how you have a great idea, all your own, and then find out somebody beat you to it?

Guess what?

Oh I doubted that I was the first to come up with it, I just hadn't had time to research it and see if anyone had. Thanks for that. I also today got my WIRED mag, and there is a blurb in there about this very use..... :-) tis the curse of not having a "school-style" education, but picking things up as you go.....we are normally LATE with great ideas....
