Feces by mail

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 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.

Get married at a sewage plant

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.

Golden Wipe

My German grandfather often used to say, "Ich bin kein Dukatenscheisser." (I don't s**t money.) But if he had this roll of toilet paper, he could have wiped with money. Or rather, gold.

It's 6-layer toilet paper embossed with 24-karat gold plate. It comes in 2 versions: either with the words 'Happy Birthday' or an Alpine rose embossed on it. Yours for only 178.50 Euros ($245, according to my desktop currency converter).

What’s in the pool?

CDC researchers recently published a study of contaminants found in public pools (in the metro-Atlanta area). It's worth reading if you plan to take a dip in a public pool this summer. Here are the highlights:

During the 2012 summer swimming season, filter concentrate samples were collected at metro-Atlanta public pools... Escherichia coli, a fecal indicator, was detected in 93 (58%) samples; detection signifies that swimmers introduced fecal material into pool water. Fecal material can be introduced when it washes off of swimmers' bodies or through a formed or diarrheal fecal incident in the water. The risk for pathogen transmission increases if swimmers introduce diarrheal feces...

The detection of E. coli in over half of filter backwash samples indicates that swimmers frequently introduced fecal material into pools and thus might transmit infectious pathogens to others... A single diarrheal contamination incident can introduce 107–108 Cryptosporidium oocysts into the water, a quantity sufficient to cause infection if a mouthful of water from a typical pool is ingested.

The frequent occurrence of fecal contamination of pools documented in this study... underscore the need for improved swimmer hygiene (e.g., taking a pre-swim shower and not swimming when ill with diarrhea). This study also found that the proportion of samples positive for E. coli significantly differed between membership/club and municipal pools. This finding might reflect differences in the number of swimmers who are either diapered children or children learning toileting skills.

Swimming in sewage

I'm pretty sure Chuck has reported on other cases of people found swimming in the human waste pits found beneath outhouses, so I'll just offer this recent case as yet another example of how this scenario might occur. An elderly man visiting Carters Lake in Georgia must have thought the outhouses there were some kind of newfangled way of going to the bathroom. Because of sitting down to relieve himself, he stood on top of the toilet seat, slipped, and fell down into the sewage pool below. It was over an hour before people realized he was missing and started looking for him. [Dalton Daily Citizen]

In one end, out the other

Apologies in advance for the crappy post. I'll let the artist, Gabriel Morais, explain his project:

The idea behind this project, is to show how much the food we ingest affects our body, therefore the colour of each poop was not manipulated on photoshop. To achieve the result, the quantity I ate for each picture was:
4.5kg of beet root in 36 hours.
3.5kg of Froot Loops in 30 hours.
4kg of sweet corn in 36 hours.

So in the photos below, he shows what he ate first, followed by what eventually came out the other end.
