As available as salt water is, wouldn't it be kind of a pain to transport / store / use as its not very kind to metal and seals?

My apologies, I'm stuck on a pathetically poor dialup connection at the moment, so I'm not going to even try to view the video. Could someone summarize for me?

IF the video is talking about some system that in some way or another derives energy from "burning water," then it is a complete hoax and/or crackpot idea. Usually both, though on rare occasion the crackpot is also a True Believer who just hasn't quite worked out all the kinks yet that keep him from reaching a genuine net positive energy output.

Schemes involving "burning" water are quite old, and the water's salt content isn't going to make a lick of difference if you're trying to run a car on it. Do a Google of "Brown's Gas" to read more.

The video was this guy trying to solve cancer with radio waves, he then figured out that salt water burned when exposed.

Only thing is, he used a giant radio machine to burn a small test tube, so....

Ah, thanks. Then yes, crackpot and/or scam artist. On both counts. Radio waves almost certainly have no carcinogenic effect. That's another hobby-horse of crackpots, pseudoscientists and scam artists. No good evidence has been provided for the claim, and there's been a lot of effort (and a lot of pseudoscience claiming false positives). Even if EM radiation is eventually shown to cause some form cancer, it's crackpot to assume it does and seek a cure when the evidence is currently heavily in favor of the null, and no mechanism is known. Or, to put it another way, being a crackpot doesn't guarantee you're wrong.
