A Norwegian golf course has been the victim of a perverse kind of vandalism repeatedly since 2005. Someone is sneaking on the golf course at night and defecating in the golf holes. The groundskeeper claims the vandal is likely a man due to the size of the...droppings. Security lights were erected to catch the offender, only to be disabled by him. So, 10 years later, this nasty person is still using the course holes as his personal potty much to the dismay of the grounds staff.
Eeyeuw! Thank god I am not a farmer, driving one of those manure plows. On the other hand, that manure spreader is pretty awesome. More of a "manure blaster" really. I envision "borrowing" one fully loaded with the most liquid poop and driving it down Main Street to wreak smelly, smelly vengeance.
This was in the news a few years ago. But it was new to me, so perhaps new to you also.
It's a machine, called White Goat, that transforms office paper into toilet paper, in only 30 minutes. Unfortunately, at $100,000, it's not exactly cost effective. But it would have to boost employee morale to know they were wiping their behinds with company reports and the boss's memos. [via techcrunch]
In the past, if you wanted to send someone a package full of a pile of feces, you had to collect the feces yourself, put them in a box, and take it to the post office. But now the internet can take care of all that messy work for you. The website shitexpress.com offers "a simple way to send a shit in a box around the world." Right now, it looks like you can only send horse manure. But options will surely expand as the service becomes more popular.
Brightwater sewage plant in King County, WA is advertising its availability for weddings. Which sounds a bit weird until you see that it's actually a nice location (well, nice enough; I suppose it depends on how picky one is), and comes at less than half the cost of comparable facilities. So I'd definitely consider it if I were planning a wedding. Why not? However, some people, such as the wedding planner in the video, seem outraged at the mere thought of it.
