What is that you ask? Why could this person possibly be floating in? I’ll tell you, it’s poop! Not just any poop either, concentrated poop. Australia doesn’t process sewage with chemicals, instead they gather up all the poop and let “natural” bacteria break it down into better things. Naturally, the poop pool is not the best environment for delicate systems and motors, they require constant maintenance. And that is where the man in the picture above, Brendan Walsh, comes in. He runs a company in Melbourne Australia called East West Dive and Salvage, they don’t necessarily specialize in poop diving, but it’s one of their services.
VICE did an interview with him and it’s a pretty interesting read. And their most pressing question, about the smell, once you see the suit that he’s wearing, you gotta realize that he won’t smell a thing, but as he said in the interview, the people who clean up after him, they smell it all.
