  1. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced that it has awarded Delft University of Technology a grant to develop a new type of toilet.

    This new device would process human waste much differently, especially without the use of water

    If you do a system restore, wouldn't it mean what I think you think it would ?

    It just might put everything back up inside you, and rearrange things up on in you and make sure it's all in order. If the restore was successful, no need for the toilet. If the restore was a bust, grab the toilet paper, for rebooting the poop out of you is going to take a while! :slurp:
