Texas AG Cruelly Informs Us Water Can't Be Turned Into Gas

We don't know which shattered dream is more heartbreaking -- the fact that water cannot apparently be turned into gas, or that the guy who said it could was named Eyal Siman-Tov and not, as he said in his ads, "Ozzie Freedom."

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced today both of these startling facts as he charged the putative Mr. Freedom with violating the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

About 3,200 Texans spent almost $100 apiece buying the "Water4Gas" manuals and equipment Siman-Tov sold, Abbott said.

And then he went on to kill our dreams.

"The Attorney General's investigation revealed that Siman-Tov has no competent and reliable scientific studies to support his claims. For example, investigators have uncovered no reliable lab test results concluding that customers can expect the enhanced engine performance as described in the defendant's online testimonials," the announcement said.

Apparently, installing a gadget that would create "Oxyhydrogen" will not transform tap water into gas.

Shell, ExxonMobil and the rest of the country's energy giants can breathe a sigh of relief.
