Moonbat Tech: Servers Powered by BS

As we learned when the tech bubble burst, Silicon Valley is built largely on BS. So why shouldn’t it be powered by BS, in the name of enviromoonbat BS?

Researchers at Hewlett Packard Co.’s HP Labs presented a paper (download PDF) on using cow manure from dairy farms and cattle feedlots and other “digested farm waste” to generate electricity to an American Society of Mechanical Engineers conference held this week.

In the paper, the research team calculates that “a hypothetical farm of 10,000 dairy cows” could power a 1 MW data center — or on the order of 1,000 servers.

Oh is that all, just 10,000 cows?

But there are some practical problems, not the least of which is connecting a data center to the cows.

“What’s the reality of getting 10,000 cows in once place?” said Angie McEliece, an environmental consultant for RCM International in Berkeley, Calif., which makes digester systems. The average size dairy farm in the U.S. includes less than 1,000 cows; farms with 5,000 cows [are] quite unusual, she said.

This is where Big Government comes in. Our rulers have two options: a) mandate the use of cower manure to run servers so that no one who does it will be at a competitive disadvantage; and b) use taxpayer funds to purchase 10,000 cows for any company running a server farm, provided they have donated generously to the DNC. My guess is they’ll go with c) both.

If people ever get tired of BS, we can run the servers and everything else on nuclear power and the abundant reserves of coal, oil, and natural gas waiting right under our feet for moonbats to let us use them.

If only they could run the servers on the BS coming out of their own brains.
