Yea, you heard me right. Forget robbing a bank. There really are bacteria that POOP gold.
And with this new-found knowledge, I can’t help but wonder: what would I do if I could poop gold? If each time I plopped down on the toilet, it was payday?
It’d be this weird version of Midas that, quite frankly, I could go for right now. Because I’m a WRITER, and writers don’t really make much dough.
But … back to these awesome, little gold-defecating bacteria.
Not only do these babies excrete the mula, they do it by eating toxic material! You can thank the reputable, respected Washington Post for alerting me to this handy tidbit: “Bacteria that poop gold? Yep, that exists, and it’s in an art exhibit.”
It’s art, too? (Laugh) … this can’t get any better.
Well, I take that back. I guess life could get MUCH better if I knew how to get my hands on some of these nifty little money-makers.
