It seems that anyone can Patent anything these days, especially in America. I'm sure someone will patent walking upright one day. Or breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. Or sharpening the edge of a piece of metal and using it to cut things.

So, here's another idea. You can't create nor destroy matter - that we all know - but you can convert between matter and different forms of energy. Well, as we all know, dark chocolate (which is not related to dark matter) is considered to be an energy food, not to mention it increases blood flow to the brain, increasing alertness and performance of certain tasks.


As we're producing more and more powerful computers which use more and more electricity, turning this energy into useful work (such as adding two binary numbers together) and wasted energy (as heat), why don't we build CPUs that convert electricity into useful work plus waste dark chocolate? There's a few benefits to this - it will decrease Global Warming (less heat, less warming) and it will give us a waste product that is directly usable that, as a bonus, increases our alertness, meaning we're less likely to vague out during our work times *and* the drive home - we'll be more productive, and it will reduce overall electricity consumption (no need for CPU fans as they are no longer getting hot, therefore we also need less air conditioning in the office).
