MANILA, Philippines – It isn’t everyday that you see Bill Gates drinking sewage water on television – but he did, along with Jimmy Fallon.
It’s for a good cause though, when Bill Gates explained the reason behind the special water. His goal was to inexpensively take away the sewage from the sewage water they collected – through an Omniprocessor – and turn the separated water into potable water. This is envisioned as a start towards a solution to problematic systems in developing countries.
“It’s way too expensive, the [filtration system] way the rich countries do it. Make something that we can put throughout Africa and get rid of all that sewage,” he said.
Jimmy presented him with two glasses afterwards – one with bottled water and the other, what was previously sewage water – to which Bill added, “This is the ultimate taste test. We think you’ll be able to figure this out.”
They both chugged it down, after which Bill revealed the glass with the sewage water. Which did you think it was? Glass one or glass two? Find out. – Rappler.com
