...just how DIFFICULT it is to "give a shit" while out on the Playa, I invite you Campers to review this brief article from last year's Piss Clear:

http://www.pissclear.org/Articles/2003/ ... ecast.html

I nearly pissed my pants, but them I thought...no...that's about nails it.
I'll be in my blanket fort until further notice.

unjonharley - I snort 'em as an alternate energy resource when the main brain cells get tired. Do you put your gerbils up a significantly lower orifice? I've never tried that, but then again I try not to think with that end. ;-)

Also, unjonharley, please say you're giving colored/non see through plastic bags out as part of the kit. I think it's a safe bet that the general population really doesn't want to see a little bag full of used wet wipes and ??? when said people leave the pottie.

Captain -are you firing a tor-poo-do? Is this a new game ....poo fetch? You know you can't leave the projectile where it lands - that's not LNT. Please, please, please say you are not bombing (or would it be considered gifting) an active Coprophagia Camp at BM.

While we are on the poo subject.... here are some turdlets of thought from my research for cards to entertainment the poo liners:

Aug. 27, 2003 — For the first time, scientists have both witnessed and photographed a whale gas bubble, suggesting that flatulence is just as common for ocean mammals as it is for humans and many other terrestrial animals.

Why are hemorrhoids called "hemorrhoids" instead of "assteroids?

"There are only two reasons to sit in the back row of an airplane:
Either you have diarrhea, or you're anxious to meet people who do."
-- Henry Kissenger (former U.S. Secretary of State)

In the medical profession, feces are referred to as stools. This comes from the Anglo-Saxon word stol, which means "seat". The word stool was originally used to describe the seat one sat on to go to the bathroom. So, the expression was that they were "going to stool." By the end of the 16th century, the word stool was used to mean the same thing as feces.

The Remains of the Day
Children of the Corn
The Running Man
Lord of the Flies

So I sent that last message and then read the tagline for BAS and read he is in Wisconsin and then thought...where's captain from.....and then saw Seattle. My first thought was how impressed I was by the Captain's long-distance projectile abilities. My second thought, which was far more important, is that Captain comes from the land of Bon Marche....which sells Frango Mint Milk Chocolates, a source of much oral pleasure and satisfaction <heavy, longing sigh at just the thought of placing one of them in my mouth>. Is there room in your heart (and boat) to forgive me all mah previous disparagements and bring a box ....say, quarter pound...to BM so that I can introduce/share an immeasurablely pleasurable moment with you and robbidobbs? I'll bat my eyes at you from here if it will help improve the chance of this happening. :-)

What is truly amazing is the fact that I am indoors :!: Not only is he launching them more than halfway across the North American continent, they are penetrating through the roof and top floor of an apartment building! :shock:

I always kind of thought that "hemorrhoids" were androids from the planet "Hemorrh". :? :P

Anyway, I don't like mint in my chocolate or chocolate in my mint..., so it is a good thing that bit was directed the Captain's way! Good luck! 8)

Ah, corn poopies... I really did need a good dose of potty humour...
Interesting poo facts- dunno if this is already common knowledge but everyone I tell seems to be fully ass-tonished.
You are supposed to "pass" 16 inches of poo per day- this is preferrably supposed to be split in 3 shits... otherwise you are constipated.
Good-for-you-poos:
Ghost poo- nothing there when you wipe, means your diet is bang on
bunny poo- little chocolate almond sized poos, same as above.

Post by robbidobbs » Thu Jun 17, 2004 4:43 pm

:roll: ok, I'll think about these as sign possibilities.
Butt as we say in the pottie-art biz: thank you for your contribution.

On Playa, I get a lot of stories about dehydration constipation.

So I'd say that 16" would be quite spectacular, considering the overall situation that a given Burner is in.
Bottom (so to speak) line:
Stay hydrated.

16"! :shock: I am NOT bringing a tape measure into the bathroom! Besides, what am I supposed to do when it comes out as a mound? And is it a good sign when it forms a little "poo island", rises up out of the water? Or is that too much?

About the only time I have had a "ghost poo" is when I was trying really hard to get fit, and was eating a high protein diet, with six small meals a day (some of which were meal replacement shakes), taking various supplements, and taking an ephedra/caffeine/asprin stake. I probably should get back to working out and being careful about my diet. I don't know about the ephedra, now that those products are illegal..., although I think that it helped my depression as much or better than the legal stuff! :?

I only seem to use the pottie for poo twice a day. Dunno what to make of that, except that it seems to be the best fit for my schedule. Hmm. Maybe 2.5 times a day is a bit more accurate. I haven't been exactly keeping track.

Hmmm.... Actually, most of the waste exits your body via the breath. Thus, when you are really huffing and puffing while working out, you really ARE exhaling the fat from your body. Speaking of fat, I am sitting here, feeling fat, and eating fudge.... :oops: I'll start my diet next week! Honest! :roll:

We now return you to your regular poo-topic!

Why are we on this subject???

Post by robbidobbs » Sat Jun 19, 2004 11:24 pm

Why?
I'm the Shit Queen, and I'm not interested in this subject.

Let's talk about adopting a cluster, and you are welcome to discuss feces statistics to the people waiting in line all you WANT.

Or are we that bored?

Yep.
SO to stretch this one out a bit further...
In regards to the 16", my source said nothing about girth, so maybe fatties count for more... like if you lines up 16 1" cubes... it's realistic anyhow. And i think the three times a day thing is more like an estimate based on the average amount of full sized meals consumed per day... I suppose if you're a grazer like me 2 might be more poo to life.

nonononono.
its 16" total for one day divided between 3 times...
so you could have an 8" and two 4"s, or two 6"s and a 4"...

but about the potty garbage dumping problem- I dont think its unreasonable to get people to leave their extra belongings (heavy beer cans, whatever) outside the loo... enforcement is probably the problem though, coz there's always going to be people who for some reason can't follow rules. damn. those potty garbage dumpers who are caught should be made to clean the potties or something.

Make the offenders hold their tongue against the toilet seat for 30 seconds. That ought to quickly and affectively solve the repeat offender issue.

As for leaving the non potty items outside the potty, that doesn't sound realistic - the items might get blown away or spilt or just left behind because the person forgot they set them down.

Well, yeah, none of the solutions is very realistic coz there are so many variables that can't be controlled coz we are dealing with people- creatures with free will... blablablavblav.
We just need to do a spell on the potties so anyone who dumps their garbagio down them or around them gets teleported back to their home with all their stuff and something gross has to happen but i havent figured that out... the licking of toilet seats was disgusting though...
