DailyDirt: Spare A Square..?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Toilet humor might be funny to a wide audience, but to some folks, toilets are not a laughing matter -- it's business. Here are a few projects that are attempting to improve toilet technology. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Toilets

    I had the good fortune of attending a party back in the late 70's in honor of Buckminster Fuller. At one point it was just the two of us sitting at the kitchen table. For half an hour all we talked about was toilets. He said if you could figure out a way to get rid of human waste without water, you'd be a hero.

    I thought the Chinese did a pretty good job by turning communal waste in Methane gas to cook with, and compost the rest!
