One of the hosts of Mythbusters turns his eye on new ideas for energy sources, from grape juice to used tires.
"On the Discovery Channel's MythBusters, Jamie Hyneman slays urban legends with the greatest of ease. Since he's also a weird-energy enthusiast (he once powered a small rocket with a salami), we asked him to help us separate the big ideas from the duds on the energy frontier."

BUSTED: JH: "Are you really going to be able to isolate diapers in such huge volumes that you're running your entire country off of gasoline powered by diapers? No."
