    "So Biobot is based on a very simple concept. Everybody pees and poops every day." "How do you know that?" You laugh, but when I first got to boot camp, the environment was such a shock that no one in our division took a dump for _three days._ Of course then we adapted, and took _one_ dump that made _up_ for it, so... 🤷

    Looking in the comments, and some of you are really thirsty to be talking about beautiful she supposedly is. She's average and okay but she certainly isn't the prettiest. This pandemic and quarantine has definitely got people thirsty. Besides if they interviewed her again it should be for whatever knowledge she has to share about their research and findings. Not for looks. The world we live in is getting sad.

    Yup. Sewage analysis. Sounds great. Until your employer can purchase the test results from your house. Or more realistically & tragically, your health insurance company. In ten years if there's too much meat or Cheetos in your diet. "We can't tie that back to an individual person." Yet. Welcome to the future unless YOU do something to change it.
