Man Claims He Made Fuel From Salt Water

It's been a few months since someone tried to make a free energy claim, so here's a guy saying he got electricity from salt water using radio frequencies. Not sure if it works or not, if it does, it'd be quite the discovery. My bets are on us not hearing about this again because it turns out to be a fake or some previously understood phenomena.

"This sounds a wee bit nutty, but an article in Sunday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tells the story of an Erie, Pennsylvania man who created a 3,000-degree flame by exposing salt water to radio frequencies.

The guy, according to the story, was trying to desalinate seawater with a generator "he developed to treat cancer," when he noticed a flash in the test tube.

Within days, he had the salt water in the test tube burning like a candle, as long as it was exposed to radio frequencies.

His discovery has spawned scientific interest in using the world's most abundant substance as clean fuel, among other uses.
