Take a dump and drive further! No, not really. The Toto toilet cycle actually uses waste from livestock and sewage. On a full tank this vehicle can go 180 miles. (NY Daily News – Toto) We actually wrote about the man who travelled Japan in this same bike. (GR – Toto)
Panda Poo fertilizes tea that will become the most expensive in the world. $200 a cup. It’s not as if you’re drinking panda poo, but supposedly a lot of nutrients get passed through a panda since all they do is eat and sleep. Yes, it reminds you of the coffee, kopi luwak, but this isn’t tea passed though an animals body, it’s merely in the dirt. Imagine… what fertilizer is being used for the tea or coffee that you drink now? (Reuters – Panda Poo)
It’s not the actual poo. We thought we’d break that to you, but the nutrients from the panda excrement is being used as fertilizer for a special tea that definitely soaks in the goodness from the panda’s diet. It’s said that panda only digest 30% of what they’re eating, so the excrement is actually filled with nutrients. An Yanshi, below bought 11 tons of feces from the ass of a panda and is growing this specialty tea. What do panda’s eat? Bamboo! What’s Bamboo associated with? Long Life. It all comes at a price. $35,000 for 18 ounces and might be a hit with someone in China… it’s higher than the high priced Kopi Luwak which are made from coffee beans...
TOTO, the powerful toilet company has developed a trike that runs of feces. It’s outfitted with a pooper as the seat and we suppose, if you ever see the driver pull over and continue down dark alleys, then you know what’s going on. The toilet trike offers no privacy and where’s the roll of TP? Is it a use the left hand clean and right hand to throttle situation? We’re sure that the vibrations can only help the drop rate. Either way, they’re proving the point that poo can now pay. Also what’s the gas milage? Ok jokes are done now. (wireduk – Toto Trike) Follow the travel with Toto blog as well.
