Pot of Gold

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is so flush with cash, they’re funding toilet research as part of the sixth round of its grand challenges project. The Washington Examiner has the poop on this and other unusual new initiatives:

The foundation on Thursday announced 88 new $100,000, five-year grants for unusual research, including a number in a new category for the program: sanitation. It’s a topic that doesn’t get a lot of attention — financially or otherwise — from charitable foundations, said one of the recipients of the grants just announced.

Hopefully this isn’t just money being thrown down the drain.
