The only comment I have right now is that I don't see any numbers about efficiency, or how much garbage can be processed, etc.

A very smart idea. It'll probably be quite expensive, especially to start with. Could be a good option for remote work camps etc.

You know what is really scary to think about - this might just all come true one day. I look back at 48 years of life, and who would have figured that there would be more than 13 TV channels, let alone color TV's in every house!

And computers. at one time IBM predicted that the entire world market was about 10 total computers. Yes 10! Now we can't even wake up in the morning without some kind of logic chip as a alarm......

Even farther back - my dad remembers as a little kid the day the power company drove up and installed ONE light in the middle of the main room. And that was a big thing. Guess they clicked in on and off for days until they got used to the instant light.

WOW David
