I googled it myself. Very nteresting!

Now we will never hear more about it, as some big petroleum company will buy the patent and all rights to it and bury it forever.

Wonder how long it is before Erdogan bans it as being anti-Islam or some shit.

I'm sure Erdogan hates bananas. They look so penis-y.
