Preparation of energy storage material derived from a used cigarette filter for a supercapacitor electrode - Abstract - Nanotechnology - IOPscience
So it seems that used cigarette butts reduced via pyrolysis to a dense carbon foam doped with nitrogen,beat commercial carbon used for supercaps and possibly going toe-to-toe with CNT/graphene.

Fission-free Fusion Explosion by Chemical First Stage
Physicist seems to have found a way to achieve a fusion/hydrogen bomb with basically no fallout (a bang, x-rays, and gamma rays). Using a boron laced HMX chemical explosive sphere imploding on a liquid deuterium-tritium core, you can theoretically achieve 1000x gain over the conventional explosive (assuming a 30cm sphere yielding a 25 ton explosion. Not big on the atomic bomb scale in terms of gain factor or raw explosive power, but the no fallout part is kinda attractive from certain applications, such as Project Orion or Medusa class space propulsion.
