Chapter 110: Walking Into Thousands of Homes

A long time ago, Uesugi Kiyoshi read a cartoon about fish, which clearly stated that these fish with legs produce gas inside their bodies.

If that's the case, then things would be much easier to handle and more economically valuable.

But later he found out that in Japan, all gases are actually referred to as "gas."

Research shows that the gas produced by these strange fish is not natural gas or biogas, and with current scientific technology, its composition cannot be analyzed.

So, directly introducing them into an energy station is not feasible.

However, the massive swarm of fish must be settled somewhere. If they are to be kept out of ordinary people's homes, the only option is to utilize underground space.

Japan's underground transportation has a history of nearly a hundred years and is at least in the top three in the world in terms of development. In just Tokyo alone, the daily passenger flow is close to tens of millions.

With the exact time of the fish attack obtained from his future self, Uesugi Kiyoshi began to renovate the underground space.

The main job was to dig a new tunnel, called the power layer, under the existing base. The entrance to the tunnel was located wherever fish could land.

At the same time, he relocated residents near the ocean and set up a research institute at the entrance of the power layer to develop a bait walker machine. This machine attracted schools of fish and allowed them to freely swim inside.

The newly installed power chamber of the subway was inserted in it. When the chamber was full of fish, the doors could be closed. Then, using the force from spraying gas, the power chamber could be pulled out.

High-pressure gas would continuously spray downwards, reducing the friction between the subway and the ground. The train driver would then open gaps in the corresponding positions based on the desired direction to move forward.

During this time, the air pressure inside the power chamber gradually increased. The pressure would crush the already decaying fish, releasing more gas until their bodies were completely consumed, perfectly matching the subway's start, acceleration, and deceleration process.

At the subway platform gaps, the power chamber would be inserted back into the power layer. The doors were then opened in front and behind, allowing the schools of fish to wash away the broken bait walker machine inside. After cleaning, the doors were closed to proceed to the next station.

This is the reason why running water doesn't go bad.

In this way, the new type of subway train would no longer require electricity supply, and the speed would significantly increase compared to before.

The sealed power chamber also prevented any odors from reaching the passenger compartments, making the riding experience more comfortable.

After the successful experiment, the remaining trains were also included in the improvement plan. Before that, each subway used over a hundred thousand units of electricity per hour. Just by saving on this, the cost would be countless!

It won't be long before the costs of construction and relocation can be fully recovered.

......

The biggest impact of the fish being brought ashore event two months ago on the Japanese people was that they didn't have fresh fish to eat.

Whether it's the sea of Japan or the Arctic Ocean, out of ten fish brought ashore, at least five or six have legs, and the rest have a faint smell of rot.

The government is developing methods to farm fish, but immediate solutions are still needed. Before that, sushi restaurants could only try to introduce varieties of freshwater fish slices, along with insect repellent, for sale.

In addition, everyday travel has become more convenient than before.

"Boss, fill up the tank with fish number 96!" as soon as he entered the fish filling station, Murayama Kezhi shouted loudly.

As the owner of a small company, today he was going to Hokkaido for business. Traveling by train seemed inappropriate for the occasion. To show his status, he decisively drove his latest model Lexus.

The business was busy, but the boss inside the house didn't want to come out. He impatiently waved his hand through the glass.

"The self-service fish adding machine is over there. Customers can put coins in by themselves!"

"Oh no!"

Swearing angrily, Murayama Kezhi had no choice but to wear a mask, get out of the car, put coins in, and insert the tube into the fish adding port on his car.

The sound of gurgling immediately resounded, it was the small fish being delivered from the power level, rushing into the car.

Compared to traditional fuel cars, this environmentally friendly fish-powered car has almost zero operating costs, so it was highly sought after as soon as it hit the market. As long as the sealing measures and exhaust filter measures are done well, you can't smell any odors at all.

The smell near the fish adding station was unbearable though.

Murayama Kezhi kept cursing the boss's family in his mind. Bored to death while waiting for the fish to be fully added, he could only count the fish in the transparent tube to pass the time.

"Anglerfish, sardine, needlefish, skate... wait, skate?!!"

After confirming that he hadn't seen it wrong, Murayama Kezhi was furious, stomping over to the boss and banging on the window.

"Hey, you dishonest merchant! The 96% fish you added has been mixed with 90% fish!"

The bigger the fish, the bigger the machine needed, which takes up more space. In other words, the efficiency naturally decreases.

The government-screened fish brought in from the power layer have been mixed by the boss for cheap gains!

"Please calm down!" The boss dared not argue and only begged in the room, "The prices have dropped too quickly, and I can't make ends meet!"

"Nonsense! Besides this building, where else do you need to spend money?"

The boss had no reply and could only force out a pained expression, "How about compensating you at triple the price?!"

"At least ten times!"

"Alright, let's make it ten times!"

Anyway, there isn't much money...

After Japan, other countries around the world also welcomed the arrival of the fish tide one after another.

Based on the number of fish and the speed of the currents, this tide of fish could last for at least twenty years. During these twenty years, humans won't have to worry about running out of energy.

The price of oil was suddenly halved, no longer being the primary source of energy. This black gold could also be used to produce many essential industrial products, but relying solely on selling energy for extravagant living was no longer realistic.

Watching the coastal countries enjoy free resources, the inland countries naturally refused to accept the situation. They issued appeals, demanding to share the rain and jointly develop and utilize fish resources.

Of course, nobody paid attention, after all, the major powerful countries in the world all have large sea areas.

Moreover, transportation was also a big problem, because if this thing accidentally leaked, it could cause quite a commotion.

People who were scratched by fish, if they didn't have an immune system, could also get infected by bacteria!

Just as countries around the world were arguing incessantly, a new oddity finally made its appearance.

In many people's homes.
