An opinion by show listener: 'Bill'
I heard you comment on your show last week with Ben Moss about ‘What ever happened to the guy who ran his car on water?’ You may have been thinking about Stanley Meyer, who got some main stream media attention over this. He died suddenly in 1998. The conspiracy side of the story is that he was poisoned after a restaurant meeting with Belgian investors. (His brother claims that during the meeting Stan ran outside saying “They poisoned me”.) The official coroner ruling was cerebral aneurysm. Officially, ‘there is nothing to his invention, his patent has expired, and anyone is free to reproduce his experiment / invention, but no one has because it doesn’t work’. However, some believe differently.
Stanley was not the only one to come up with an invention that allowed an automobile to run on water, although he may be the one who has received the majority of mainstream media attention. But others have achieved the same thing.
