If you’re a long time Mac fan like I am, you probably remember a time in the 90’s when you would have paid anything to watch then Microsoft CEO eat shit and die.
Of course, since leaving Microsoft, Bill Gates has become quite the humanitarian… one who is especially concerned with the problem of getting clean drinking water to the rest of the world. So these days, I have no interest in seeing him eat shit and die.
But drink shit and live? Sign me up!
In a new video on his official YouTube channel, Bill Gates tried out the Omniprocessor, an ingenious machine designed and built by Janicki Bioenergy which can turn human waste into water and electricity.
And Gates, sport that he was? He actually drank water that came out of the machine. Water that came from poop. And when all was said and done, he was impressed. “It’s water,” he says in the video, with a noticeable sound of relief.
Laughing aside, this is great work that could have huge repercussions in the developing world. Or as Gates himself notes, “In places without good waste treatment plants, it could be a real game-changer.” Maybe even more so than an iPhone.
