Bill Gates, 1 Cup

Bill Gates has taken his humanitarian efforts to a new, and geniously disgusting, level.

BBC News reports that the billionaire has created a machine that turns sewer sludge into water and electricity. Just a reminder that “sewer sludge” is a really nice word for human waste.

The machine boils the waste so the liquid separates, and then cleans the separated water to make it drinkable. While this may seem gross, this machine is a game changer for providing clean drinking water for those who need it. 

Watch here as Gates takes an apprehensive sip of the machine made water.
