British town runs on its own poop

Shit power's better than shit in the faceThe power of poo has lifted a town in Oxfordshire, England, into a self-sustaining haven of the British countryside. The BBC reported that Didcot has become the first UK town to power itself completely on its own sewage.

The Beeb also diagrammed the poo-powering process, which should look familiar to long-time agents of Handshake who saw our video on how to create electricity from cow crap.

To think, just 200 years ago these people were throwing their shit out the window. Now the entire town’s running on the stuff, and the poor sap who would’ve gotten a lumpy dousing from a chamberpot can instead enjoy some quality time laughing at scatological humor on the interwebs instead. That’s progress for ya.
