Will Poo Month Never End??? February 13, 2019 5:28 PM   Subscribe

Poop month was January! JANUARY! And yet Johnny Wallflower and his nefarious assistant Fizz are turning February into Poop month 2: The wrath of crap! When. Will. It. Stop?

On a related note, I had a designer work up a draft design for the megathread challenge coin, and the plate of beans looks like a plate of poop.

Is there where I should explain that in my office building by the service elevator, there is an open room that the staff don't want people storing things in. So, it's got lots of signs up that say "No dumping!"

The janitorial staff has regular meetings in that room, so they have a bunch of places to sit that they keep there. The places to sit? Are portable seats with no backs, a.k.a. stools.

So, right next to the "No dumping!" signs, there is a very large stool deposit.

Yes, I giggle about this every time I walk past.

In fairness there have only been 26 poop-related FPPs so far this year. That's a frequency of roughly once every other day, which most medical professionals will conclude is insufficient. So it feels like there's far more poop backing up inside MeFites that's yet to emerge on the site.

y'all I am giggling to myself like a very satisfied hyena after one hell of a long work week spent fighting with my equipment. This is amazing.

I don't study poop, although I've been dying for one of my colleagues to collect some wild-caught feces from the singing mice for some time so we can find out what the shit it is they eat in the wild. Did you know that you can tell that from poop by sequencing it in a technique called "metabarcoding" that's more effective that capturing wild animals and dissecting the contents of their stomachs? That latter approach is vulnerable to over-counting certain types of things (in my guys, say, insect carapaces or woody vegetation that stick around longer vs. the soft, malleable grubs we know they like), and metabarcoding is also noninvasive which makes it incredibly helpful for conservationists. I'm sure Chura knows a whole lot more than me about it!

I am often sad that I feel like I can either choose between networking with other EEB folks online or sharing cool science in my field. There's so much neat stuff out there! But it usually feels just a little too close to stepping over that no-self-promotional line.

I'm not a total expert in horse body language but I think they were saying they didn't want such high quality manure getting in the hands of the Axis of Poop, which as we all know is Johnny Wallflower-Fizz-Wordshore.

This past summer, I had an abdominal surgery, which involved several days of clear liquids before and after, which is miserable for a gourmand such as myself. The key milestone to show that my bowels had resumed their usual course of action and that I would be allowed people food again was, um, the production of gas. I celebrated this by texting my now wife with a short video showing me exiting the bathroom in my hospital room to the opening of AC/DC's classic "Thunderstruck", with choreography based on me pointing to the appropriate anatomical region each time the song chants "Thunder!".
