That’s because the video features Bill Gates challenging Jimmy to a taste test — whereby two glasses are marked with No. 1 and No. 2 on them — and Fallon has to guess which glass of water is the so-called “poop water” from the Omniprocessor, a process helmed by Gates that turns sewage “poop” into clean drinking water. Published on Jan 22, the YouTube video is getting a strong reaction from viewers, perhaps because in the end, Bill Gates has placed “poop water” in both glasses — therefore, no matter which glass Jimmy would’ve chosen, he would’ve always been drinking “poop water” from the Omniprocessor, which has more details on the Gates Letter website. Gates explained to Fallon that cleaning water the way countries like the United States perform the process takes more money than necessary.
“It’s way too expensive the way the rich countries do it.”
Fallon seemed hyped for the challenge, and joked about knowing which glass most likely contained the “poop water,” in reference to a running joke about going number two.
“You changed it into drinkable water and you drank it.”
Gates described how sewage is manipulated via electricity and turned into water. Two glasses of water were present, and Fallon allowed Gates to select the specific glass that Fallon would drink from. Although he initially acted a little grossed out and stuffed tissue in his mouth, Fallon seemed like a good sport throughout the whole experience of drinking poop water.

Lo still hopes to find love.
