Benoit St. Pierre drops one end of a garden hose into a large holding tank filled with liquefied cow manure. Pulling back on a syringe-like stopper attached to his end of the hose, he draws out a cup of clear liquid -- miraculously, given the brown sludge at the surface. The tank and its unappealing contents are more valuable than ...
