Germany's Bild newspaper reported on Tuesday and Wednesday that inventor Christian Koch had come up with a new form of biodiesel that's 1/5 the price of regular diesel fuel. And it's distilled from the remains of dead cats. Koch denies the deceased feline claims, chalking the whole thing up to tabloid sensationalism. "I use paper, plastics, textiles and rubbish," Koch explains. "It's an alternative fuel that is friendly for the environment. But it's complete nonsense to suggest dead cats. I've never used cats and would never think of that. At most the odd toad may have jumped in." [Thanks to Jason for the tip.]
