I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.

 


The biofuel cell implanted into the snail by a team led by Evgeny Katz, the Milton Kerker Chaired Professor of Colloid Science at Clarkson University, was able to operate continuously producing electrical power for most of the snail’s six month lifespan, using only the snail’s physiologically produced glucose and oxygen in the snail’s blood as a fuel.

I’ve seen analysis of systems like these say that the amount of sugar in a typical can of soda could power the equivalent of a 60-watt bulb for something like three hours. Maybe we’re moving towards a future where they’ll just sell tvs that hook up to your bloodstream and burn off your excess blood sugar before it converts to fat so you can just consume all the pizza and beer you want without adversely affecting your health. (I’m kidding of course) (but only kind of) (Never doubt potential weight loss fads) (remember when people used to willingly consume tapeworm eggs to keep trim?)(Oh wait apparently they still do that)
