Friends list quote

The "modernist" practice of flushing poop with drinkingwater, drilling for heating fuel, ignoring the sun as a nuisance, and building with no regard for site or sustainability is already part of history. The dinosaurs walk among us, thrashing about.

Don't know what s/he's talking about?

Start here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composting_toilet

I so trust the bazillion authors of Wikipedia that I have not read the article to which I have directed you. That said, I have a Sun-Mar composting toilet new in the box sitting under the carport on my land waiting for me to build a bathroom to house it.

A properly built and maintained outhouse accomplishes the same thing, but they're illegal in most places now.

In modern parlance, an "outhouse" counts as a "cesspit."

"Micro-organisms doing their thing to turn poop into soil" equals "scandolous accumulation of untreated filth."

Yes, but somehow if we do all of that in a fiberglass container and *then* put it on the soil it's suddenly okay.
