Bill Gates Turns His Attention To...

... the toilet.
Yes, the John, the Dunnie, the Crapper, the Commode, the Cludgie - and some other, more colorful euphemisms. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced the prizewinners of a contest to come up with a workable toilet for the underdeveloped world (about 40% of the world's 7 billion souls), where running water is often not available. It's not a laughing matter unfortunately, as the side effects of poor sanitation are dreadful, and claim many millions each year who succumb to cholera and similar maladies, many of them children.
