Shmaltzy air force

The US Air force has plans to save the planet by converting all of its planes to run on a 50/50 mix of conventional and bio-fuel by 2010.

Among the bio-fuel possibilities being discussed is shmaltz. Chicken fat can, it seems, be converted into jet fuel. It can only be a matter of time before we see the first chicken soup powered helicopter.
