winehouse1.jpgWhat’s better than urine, human sweat, and Amy Winehouse? Rarely anything! Unless of course, it’s Amy Winehouse causing the sweat, which increases the urine, and ultimately helps power a nightclub! Go team!

Reports are streaming in that the less-than-healthy Winehouse has signed on to sing at the September opening night of Watt club in Rotterdam, Netherlands. As one source explained, “The energy will come from urine and sweat from the visitors. Toilets will be flushed by rainwater.”

Basically, the entire dance floor will be one large energy-generating system. When the music starts to rock, vibrations from people jumping and grooving will create electric currents to charge a battery or other devices. Granted, I’m under the impression that this probably won’t be enough to make the entire club energy independent, but it certainly is a fantastic use of human power.

Back to Winehouse — don’t expect her to be christening this club because she’s into the environment. There’s also a ridiculous paycheck on the table for her services in the amount of $700,000. Granted, unless you have Winehouse stapled to the stage, it’s almost a given that some “crisis” will cancel her performance at the last minute. Watt owner Aryan Tieleman thinks otherwise saying, “It’s as good as certain.” Yea, ok. Pour us an organic beer, Aryan, and we’ll tell you another one.
