Weird Post of the Day: 500lbs Potato Battery

We're not sure how to categorize that one. "Weird Science Project Gone Too Far", maybe? Or "Alternative Energy" and "Food", to be literal about it. From the website: "I built a potato battery out of 500 pounds of potatoes. It powered a small sound system. With the help of the Red 76 crew I installed the battery and sound system in the back of a U-Haul truck and drove it around town inviting people to enter the truck and take a listen." And a final warning, "Don't eat potatoes after using them for a battery." We'll remember that... ::500 lb Potato Battery, via ::Digg.
