Sorry, but that’s the topic for an article that popped into my
head while out walking with my wife.
The walk was my second workout that I’ve squeezed into today.
My first one was simply practicing my beloved karate… in my
man-cave, where no one could witness me “crashing through
clavicles to decimate vagus nerves, instantly shutting down
enemies with a single blow!”
Well, if you’re going to practice the same punch for over 40
years, you might as well visualize why a single punch might be
worth throwing properly… and understand why you don’t need to
learn a million different techniques in most endeavors… IF you
can MASTER one 🙂
My walk with my wife was to get exercise, to encourage my wife to
do that same… as we bonded a little, and because I get my
greatest ideas while out walking… which is why I carry an
iPhone or iPad to make voice or text notes when I get those
stokes of genius.
Today, I reflected on how solving ONE persistent problem made
hundreds of millions while saving untold trillions… especially
when the environmental impact was factored in!
So, what was the problem?
It was that humans, when their bodies process food, produces
WASTE, and sometimes you need a way to not haul that waste
On airplanes (and spaceships), the heavier you are, all thing
being equal, the more expensive it is to fly the craft both
because it can take more fuel to propel it AND because since an
aircraft can only carry so much weight, depending upon a fixed
set of circumstances, weight does weigh on the minds of aviators
and those who operate those craft.
Basically, you have to balance how much weight you can carry
between fuel, cargo, and passengers.
As you travel along, you burn off fuel, making the aircraft
lighter and therefore more fuel efficient.
IF you could make the aircraft even LIGHTER, it could be more
cost-efficient to operate…
butt what else can you eliminate on an aircraft in-flight to make
Well, on my beloved C-130, we had wall-mounted urinals, that when
used, simply had a flutter valve which turned the urine into a
fine mist as it exited the side of the aircraft.
That may, or may not have been rain you felt as we flew overhead.
OK, OK… I know that I can be long-winded.
The solution to making an aircraft lighter and therefore more
fuel efficient, is the same one that’s suitable for RV’s, boats,
and massive ships… and probably spacecraft Elon!
You INCENERATE the crap out of all of the feces produced by all
of those humans.
If done properly, it was very cost-efficient, and produced VERY
little pollution. It’s VAPORIZED!
So, someone asked little ole me, how do I get my “shit burner”
noticed by the right people, while protecting my patent, etc.,
and get it out there making its creator and the manufacturer
untold wealth as private individuals, industry, and governments
pay for this great idea.
I actually stopped following how this project unfolded when it
hit several hundred million, wanting to work on something BIGGER
Let’s leave our story off here for now… something for you to
think about on your next restroom break.
However, remember that you are limited only by your ability to
visualize solutions to common problems… often ones that have
been around as long as we have.
Maybe you should consider joining my mastermind group…
