Rather than hijack El Gato's serious thread, I've poised this as a new thread:

Yeah, Gato, what happens? Is it true that explosive diarrhea can disable a composting head
? And perhaps a whole vessel? This is one of the biggest reasons I like being alone. I don't want to know what's up with yer bowels. Really.
I've heard of incinerating yer poop. What's up with that?
Almost no one likes propane
because of the danger
. Seems like we could use the methane produced prior to, and often during pooping for human good. I'd think these $500 a mo cruisers eating beans and rice could well capture their methane in a homemade head/5 gal bucket/Igloo cube cooler, empty milk jug, whatever
, and sell it fer profit.
I've heard cow flatulence is stinking up the ozone layer. Couldn't we capture it in some flexible material, and sell it for fuel
? Like dime or nickel bags. Gasses are quite compressible. Think how much could be crammed into a scuba
cylinder! (Might want to have a special sticker for that tank to avoid confusion, or much worse.) Obviously, if it leaks
, it has a built-in safety odor
. My flatulence has an aroma of lavender and a hint of cinnamon most days. Other days, more like Texas
Pete hot sauce.
Also, I know we have to keep the urine separated from the "other" stuff. What about an old guy like me sitting there, meditating, who might have a tendency to drivel a little or even a lot?
Caution: thread drift: why do we feel sooooo much better after a BM? I happen to have dry, perfectly-shaped stools but do those with diarrhea also feel better er wot?
David, how does goat flatulence fit in yer life?
