Poopers

alice liddell on pooper lid by ~cannibol

"The Boerum Hill stoop pooper has struck. After getting stoop pooped twice last year, I have been struck again by the 'Mad stoop pooper that poops at midnight!!! (or sometimes in the wee hours of the night).' Last year I caught her in process twice, once on my stoop and once between some parked cars in the middle of the day. The latter time I called the police who arrested her. She is a mentally disabled black woman, a little heavy set, with dirty hair. I have a feeling that she was probably receiving the help she needed but was discharged and is back in the hood!!!! Granted I am just assuming it is her again but given that she uses her own toilet paper and some was left on my stoop. I would have to eliminate a random person that just HAD to go. Keep an eye out for her."
Excerpted from Return of the Stoop Pooper

There are some funny comments on the thread such as this one:
11233..."She has some mental health issues but so do a lot of "normal" people."

I hope your not referring to anyone posting all day on an inane blog about about poop that's soon to reach 100 posts!!!

Unscheduled Toilet Stop

Hat tip to Wagga for this find:
THE run of bad luck afflicting Qantas took a graphic turn last night when a fully loaded 767 flying from Sydney to Perth was forced to stage an unplanned landing in Adelaide so its toilets could be emptied.

Flight staff on QF571 told passengers that Sydney ground staff had forgotten to empty the toilets on the 767-300, which originated in Honolulu.

By the time the flight had been in the air for an hour, three of the toilets had ceased to function.

"They told us that under any reasonable calculation, the rest of them would go pretty quickly," one businessman told the Herald during the plane's cleaning stop in Adelaide.

"Four out of seven toilets were not flushing so for the comfort of our passengers we diverted to Adelaide," a Qantas spokeswoman said.

Passengers were "exasperated", the businessman said, but otherwise resigned to the delay.

"All this discussion of toilets triggered an urgent need to go in just about everyone," he said.

"We did ask for more red wine to be brought on board, but it was felt not to be a priority."

The unscheduled Qantas toilet stop comes only hours after the national carrier was forced to delay Sydney-bound QF2 from London for more than 15 hours after a problem with its rudder.

Casey Serin's Toilet


Hat tip to our namesake Edgar for the image upload, because I have exceeded my limit and Casey’s new blog will probably implode soon enough.

WARNING: Never turn to Casey Serin for financial advice. In fact, it is generally best to assume he is a barometer of sorts to remind you What Not to Do.

Crap on Mars?

Hat tip to Wagga for this find:
HAVE they found poo on the Red Planet?

Space websites around the world are abuzz with speculation about what NASA's latest Mars probe may have found.

The excitement has been triggered by a report in the journal Aviation Week that the space agency alerted the White House to "major new Phoenix lander discoveries concerning the 'potential for life' ".

Jon Clarke, a geologist with Mars Society Australia, a group dedicated to Martian exploration, said the report had triggered a frenzy of interest. "Chat groups are all speculating about what it is," Dr Clarke said. "We have had emails flying backwards and forwards. Something is certainly in the breeze."

The magazine reports that the discovery was made by a Phoenix experiment package called the Microscopy, Electrochemistry and Conductivity Analyser, or MECA, which is designed to mix Martian soil with water brought from Earth.

In June NASA revealed the instrument had found Martian soil was not toxic, as had been thought, and could be used to grow crops such as asparagus.

Asked to speculate yesterday on what it may have now found, Dr Clarke said the instrument was designed, among other things, to spot dissolved ammonium and nitrate salts.

"On Earth, if you have a lot of ammonium and nitrate it usually means there is organic activity. We excrete it as waste and other organisms use it."
