Paul Moran, 30 and living in a government subsidized apartment in Ireland, came up with the awesome idea of turning his craps into gold.
The idea was discovered when he caused $4000+ damage by putting his poop into his electric heater thinking if he heated it enough it would, yes, turn into the precious metal. That started a fire in his home and neighborhood. A smelly fire.
Mr Moran is now in jail for arson and endangering others.
