Don’t lock the three common screws in the basement. No matter who they are, kidnapping is still a crime.

Coupled with Unobtanium Batteries, it will power your house for 10,000 years.

Unobtaium is made by bombarding Titanium with Ununnoctium using ground up Ytterbium as a catalyst. This produces Eszalntorium. which is no 264 on the Atomic Table, and has an Atomic weight of 6,184. Making it 30 tims heavier than lead. This is the problem of course. Each battery weighs 30 tonns.
