One thing I really hate...or should I say gives me the s#its...while driving this meat puppet around that I'm living in for this lifetime is having to do number 1s and number 2s.

There is even a machine that makes poo (pictured above), although I didn't get to see...or smell it in motion the day I was there.
I guess if you are like me, you tend not to think too much about wee and poo, but I thought it was amusing that the site Hobart wants to build it's new Eden project on calls for moving the old sewerage works to somewhere else in the city.
I wrote about reading of plans for Hobart's Eden project in this post -
Ogoh! I Missed the Burning

I guess the South Park guys had a point long before Hobart though when it comes to the movement of a sewerage works to make a garden.

I was reading David Walsh's (owner of MONA) autobiography
'A Bone of Fact', where he wrote in a footnote that one of his favourite euphemisms for doing number 2s is, "going to do modern art", and he should know. :-)
The wasted potential of our faecal treasures
"Going to the toilet is an everyday event for most of us, but unlike other animals, we have a real aversion to our bodily waste. Inspired by her dog's love of poo, Cath Simpson set about investigating how we can use our poo for good.."
This is a good podcast about faecal matters, which was aired on Australia's national radio -
