Behold the pickle!
Look, it's food fueling food.
This is combining two of my favorite old-school science experiments. The potato battery, and the pickle light.

6 colors on lemon

Re: Fuel Your Hunger


I wonder if this would actually work.
I read that if you boil the potatoes first that they'll produce 10x's as much energy. And you can aggregate the voltage by chaining a bunch of them together in series.
I did read a story about a guy who used 500 pounds of potatoes to power a stereo.
So lighting a pickle should be a snap.

Thanks, k8edid3.
Although I don't think I want to invest in 500 pounds of potatoes to try it out.

You say either, and I say either.
You like potato, and I like...uh, pickles.
Let's call the whole thing off.
