Guess why the Gates Foundation bought a crapload of fake poop8/11/2012
We don’t know how you become the “experts of fake feces,” but we imagine it takes a s**t-ton of research and, uh, development. But there is demand: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation needs the imitation poop for its “Reinvent the Toilet Fair,” an initiative to build better toilets worldwide. Next week, it will test prototypes built using Gates Foundation grants, and they need testing materials. Since real poop isn’t an option, they needed a crapload of fake s**t -- 50 pounds' worth. Enter Maximum Performance, a company that distributes faux poop to nearly all the world’s toilet-makers. Yes, a monopoly exists even in the synthetic feces industry. [Source]
