how many germs are in your mucous when you blow your nose while enduring a cold?
What if those germs could be harnessed — or rather, what if the powerful effects of those germs — could be harnessed to do something positive, like power a Roomba or a hairdryer? Or serve as vanquishers of other germs, in, say, dirty water? Or hell, what if they just cleaned your toilet? This is a potentially repurposed power source that’s going to waste, I say.
Science, the gauntlet has been thrown. Take the hell that is the common cold and turn its tiresome evil into good.
You may all thank me later for this inspired idea.
