Final post for the year –

Posted: December 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

I’m very much enjoying blogging on Everybody Poohs… and the questions that are arising with it. But it has come to crunch-time to get my master’s thesis completed and need to focus 110% on it. I am taking a short break from writing blogs and will just be posting links to other things I find interesting. And in January I’ll be back full of urine power!

Speaking of urine power and interesting articles: this article has been sent to me several time over the past two weeks: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/urine-powered-generator-unveiled-international-exhibition-234718329.html

There is a lot of criticism around it, so my first post in the new year will be on the facts of how much energy 1 L of human urine can actually produce.

Thanks for reading and sharing and commenting.

Hope all is well and happy holidays (when/if they come to you…)
