Silly and Beige: Enough Anti-Matter to Juice a Light Bulb
According to this columnist, we should consider anti-matter as a source of energy. It's the most expensive substance known to man - $25 million per gram - but 2.2 pounds of the stuff would be the equivalent to 345 million gallons of gasoline.

Geesh... we can do that with a "flock" of hamsters running on wheels. What do these physicists get their fancy degrees for anyway?
