“This sounds a wee bit nutty.”

“It appears to have started with a Sept. 9 story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, by David Templeton, about a researcher who developed a radio frequency generator intended to kill cancer cells. For some reason he touched a match to the water in the culture dish and found that it burned as long as the RF generator was zapping the water. Although some stories have referred to this as burning saltwater, what actually seems to have been happening is that the RF energy was causing hydrolysis, dissociating H2O and releasing hydrogen gas. The initial discovery apparently happened last May.”
Can radio waves liberate hydrogen from salt water? Is this a new energy source?, KSJT, September 13, 2007

Hmmm, but is it nutty?
