Heh heh heh, I had to post this after I watched the video — hopefully CBS will keep the video link up for a while. Here’s the deal: Some highschool kids from Philadelphia have built sports car that runs on soybean bio-diesel. Zero to 60mph in 4 seconds is p r e t t y good! Considering that these students “weren’t exactly the cream of the academic crop” this story has raised some interesting questions along the lines of “why the h*.* haven’t the big auto companies done anything like this yet?”.

One of the students who helped build the car addressed that question (a CLASSIC quote if you can see the video):

Kosi thinks he knows why. The answer, he says, is the big oil companies.
“They’re making billions upon billions of dollars,” he says. “And when this car sells, that’ll go down — to low billions upon billions.”
