Cars are a fantastic invention. They make our first-world lives even more carefree by getting us from place to place quickly while eradicating the need for legs altogether. Instead of walking that two blocks to spend seventeen dollars at KFC, why not drive there? You get there faster and can start eating sooner; it is a lot easier to shove those Double Down sandwiches down your throat behind the wheel of your Suburban than while hobbling down the sidewalk. There is no doubt that the benefits of driving from place to place are exponentially great. However, all that driving takes an awful lot of fuel, and everyone knows that fuel for cars isn’t the most plentiful (or cheapest!) of resources.
Flip the script. Remember that guy you stepped over on your way into the office this morning? Remember the faint smell of urine that lightly brushed over your nostrils as you carefully avoided disturbing his peaceful slumber, as to avoid his aimless requests for spare change? That man is part of an incredibly high population of homeless citizens in America; the amount of homeless is roughly estimated to be between 2.3 million and 3.5 million people. That’s approximately 1 in 10 people living without a home. That’s approximately 1 in 10 people living on the streets every night with no job, no car, and no responsibilities. If only there was a way to supply the population with a cheaper, more plentiful alternative to gasoline that is so desperately needed. If only there was a way to give those millions of homeless Americans a job and a place to stay. If only we had camps that housed the homeless in return for nothing but physical labor. Wait, what?
Homeless people are rich in natural oils. The absence of showers ensures that the street dwellers will not be ridding themselves of their daily, natural human secretions that the rest of us rinse off every night and day. What plagues teenagers with acne can power the cars and trucks of tomorrow if we could just harvest these oils the homeless are practically bathing in. How do we reach these oils? When we shower the precious secretions are mixed into a useless batch containing water and soap, and that is no good for cars. It looks like this idea for the future is unrealistic after all….
Human’s pores are cleansed through a very basic, natural process that everyone goes through: sweating. The bloodstream carries excess heat in the body towards the surface of the skin, which triggers the sweat glands. These glands then produce sweat – a combination of water, salt, and amino acids. The sweat then escapes through tiny holes in the skin. These holes are known as pores and produce the natural oils of the body that are usually left undisturbed on the skin of the homeless. The sweat, while passing through the pores, carries the oils out and allows the body to produce more gold. That’s right – the sweat of the homeless is an endless...
