Internet Via the Sewers

It really is Internet through the sewer:

“A Web connection via the toilet bowl may sound like Google’s most recent April Fool, but the University of Aberdeen plans to welcome students back with a high bandwidth internet network connected via the sewers.

The university tapped H2O Networks to provide a high capacity link for the next 10 years, enabling students to access the Internet from their halls of residence.”

And no mention is made about whether you need to install ‘sewer-ware.’ Sorry – I tried – but I couldn’t resist…
