Bill Gates posted a video about an initiative he funded to create a machine that takes sewer sludge and converts it to clean drinking water.

Farrah Abraham’s Gigantic Fake Lips
Farrah posted the pics online herself with the caption, “Girlfriends don’t say I didn’t warn ya ! #BOTCHED California #ER #fixit”.
