My first rocket attack, and I eat algae

Well, after getting lost in the wilds of Israel, we arrive at Ashkelon. We're going to see a proof of concept where Seambiotic uses algae to produce biofuel.

I didn't quite get how close it is to Gaza. While waiting for security to clear we hear a siren, and the guards rush us to a wall. The siren alerted them to a rocket attack which probably landed far south of us. They ushered us up against a wall, which presumably protects against shrapnel from one side.

(first time I've ever needed to write "shrapnel.")

For your own rocket attacks, I recommend the Qassam.

Anyway, they showed us the processes used to grow algae used to produce biofuel on a possibly industrial basis.

The resulting dust is also an excellent source of Omega-3 nutrients.

Us health food advocates have been eating algae for years! :-)
Great source of plant protein and fatty acids.
The trick is mixing it with things that don't make it taste like the bottom of the lake in august.
Smoothies are the answer…
Try banana, blueberries, coconut water, and some spirulina for a great morning drink.
Let me know how it turns out!

Consider the physics – the direction the rocket was coming from was on the other side of the wall.
Rocket lands in front of you, wall protects you from shrapnel.
Rocket lands behind you, the shrapnel will (generally) continue continue in the direction of travel, away from you.
