You can earn $13,000 a year selling your poop - The Washington Post

This brings a whole new level of meaning to the term "crap-ton of money"





You can earn $13,000 a year selling your poop - The Washington Post



You can donate blood, plasma, eggs, and sperm. Why not poop? Yes, your feces are perhaps your greatest untapped monetary resource. Thanks to a nonprofit organization called OpenBiome, you can cash in to the tune of $13,000 a year -- and save lives while you're at it.....

And yes, they pay for healthy poop: $40 a sample, with a $50 bonus if you come in five days a week. That's $250 for a week of donations, or $13,000 a year.

I really like the look of the Guppie multitool, which turns a carabiner into a multidriver, adjustable wrench and utility knife (there’s even a pocket-clip that doubles as a money-clip if you want to carry it in a front pocket). Hell, it’s even got a flashlight! And a bottle opener! I…

What David Cameron just proposed would endanger every Briton and destroy the IT industry
David Cameron says there should be no “means of communication” which “we cannot read” — and no doubt many in his party will agree with him, politically. But if they understood the technology, they would be shocked to their boots.
