Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?

I had a brief period as the 'go-to Jock' on my University magazine.

Filthy rich: British poo could be worth £510m

joe.co.uk — "Where there's sh*te, there's gold", if you will. Boffins have discovered that precious metals like gold, silver and platinum can be extracted from sewage to prevent millions being literally flushed down the bog. Rooting around in human sh*t doesn't seem like the cleanest way to make a fortune, but the figures show it could be amazingly lucrative.
