CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

While you were sleeping, the Internet never stopped. And it's amazing what the Internet comes up with. Check out what people are tweeting, sharing and talking about.

'Poo bus' hits the road

A bus powered entirely by human waste and food hit the road this week in the United Kingdom.

The "Bio-Bus", also nicknamed the "Poo Bus," can travel up to 186 miles on one tank of gas, which takes the annual waste of about five people to produce, according to the BBC. A single passenger's annual food and sewage waste would fuel the Bio-Bus for 37 miles.

The waste is generated into gas by a treatment process known as anaerobic digestion, where impurities are removed to make the emissions odor-free. Compared to conventional diesel vehicles, 30 percent less carbon is emitted by the gas.

According to Mohammed Saddiq, GENeco manager, the bus is actually "powered by people living in the local area, including quite possibly those on the bus itself."

100-year-old woman gets wish granted, sees ocean for first time

Ruby Holt had one wish for her 101st birthday: too see the ocean for the first time.

Holt spent much of her life working in Tennessee and raising four children with no time or money to take a trip to the beach. 

"I've heard people talk about it and how wonderful it was and wanted to see it, but I never had the opportunity to do so," Holt said.

When workers at Holt's assisted living facility found out she had never seen the ocean, they partnered with Wish of a Lifetime organization and sent her to the Gulf of Mexico. 

"When we got to the room yesterday she was just pointing out the ocean and, you know, her facial expressions and ... she was just speechless," said Mark Davis, the executive director of Holt's living facility. 

Cameras were rolling as Holt stepped on to the sand for the first time and the video has melted hearts across the internet. Watch it below or here if you're on a mobile device.
