Okay, even if it isn't frozen there is still moisture. Not to mention stuff comes off the turkey. The oil immersion only works if the oil is clean. If the oil breaks down (as it does when heat is applied, or food is cooked in it) bad stuff happens.
Have you seen the PSU we're talking about? Do you really think that we're serious? lol
Just pointing out an obvious flaw in your dreams :)

Thats why we do curly fries after the turkey. The fries will suck up alot of the nasty stuff in the oil and make it cleaner.

I don't think it works that way lol. Most potatoes do fry cleaner, but they definitely don't absorb stuff the way you think they do. lol

Strangely enough, this device actually exists.....

The Egg shows this PSU as: Deactivated Item

Quote:
What is a Deactivated Item?

When a product is out-of-stock, it may show as "Deactivated" on the item page. This could mean that the item is no longer available and we are searching for a new supplier. However, if an item has reached the end of its product life cycle and will no longer be available at all, the deactivation will be permanent.


Now this is likely because they were hard pressed to find people to buy the things. I don't know of too many people that actually have need for a 1 KW PSU let alone a 2 KW PSU. Unless of course bragging rights exceed common sense? :?

Considering these things cost upwards of $600 EA. you will need about $3,000 just for PSUs. Now I may be wrong but I figure the money would be better spent seeking medical help if you get my drift. :lol:

yeah, its real
but when you power it on
it bends the space time continuum around your pc
therefore removing you from this plane of existence completely

why on earth would anybody need this for a home rig? well maybe staypuff but he is on a mission to melt the polar ice and that would probably do it

still can't beat the flux capacitor:

1.21 Jiggywatts, bro.


if we as a community banded together, and found a way to put all of our PCs together to create a really nice super computer, it would be amazing! then Crysis will run very well, like DOS games in XP or Vista. and folding power would thus be phenomenal.

Though I agree in principal I don't see the Flux Capacitor as a viable solution. The source of power should be available or available soon for our commercial power needs. I have the following in mind.

First we start with a double unit, each capable of producing 125 MW of power:

A single of this dual looks like this:

Then a better look at the single unit itself:

Fully self contained and runs 5 years before needing fuel. I see this as a viable and practical solution.
