Making my own fertilizer

Hi. I'm new to rec.gardens. Lately, I have been lurking and reading many of your posts with keen interest and have finally decided to jump in and ask a question to all of you seasoned gardeners out there. Is it considered safe to use my own feces for fertilizer? Before you all sigh a collective _gross_ hear me out. I'm an avid gardener and an ordained member of JR Bob Dodds sub genuis organisation. My name there is Reverend Gas Fartus Maximus. Here is a link to his website if any of you are curious or bi curious. http://www.subgenius.com / Being a minister, I frequently have to evacuate my bowels because most of us eat a lot and are full of waste. One day, my plumbing was backed up in my flat and I found myself without a lavatory for a couple of days. When nature would call, I would wander out into the backyard, squat down and pass mud (mud being stool.) I noticed that my garden did fairly well within a matter of days and then it hit me. People fertlize with cow manure all of the time. Why not human waste? Am I onto something here? I would appreciate any of your comments.
Sincerely,
Runnnerr
PS- Will Miracle Grow do anything to make my penis grow? I can apply it in the shower. It makes a blue mess but Lysol cleans it up spic and span. Speaking of spics, how many of you employ doemstics to work in your gardens?

Cows dont eat near cow shit, Sheep dont eat near sheap shit, they will both happily eat near each others shit.
Any pathogens in your fecies are by definition ones that can live in you. I'ts probally a poor decision higine wise.
There may well be laws against these sorts of behaviors as well.
And I've never heard a sub Geinii refer to the church as an orginisation before. Disorginisation sure... But orginisation? you sure you paid your $30 and schismed to form your own church after you were ordaned?

Yep. It has been used for thousands of years, and still is. The main safety issue is about different people contributing, when some individuals have infections/parasites. You need a long time-frame, and, preferably, hot-composting, with the right proportions of ingredients, and the right total volume.
I recommend the Humanure Handbook:
http://www.jenkinspublishing.com/humanure.html
BTW, for those folks out there who think that this is soooo primitive, consider that a major commercial compost supplier in my area includes "biosolids" from the municipal sewage plant. Totally legal and legit.
I aspire to live in a rural area, with solar electric, rainwater, etc. And the toilet issue will be solved quickly, simply, and in an environmentally-friendly manner. That means Humanure feeding my veggie garden.

There's no prob with "Bob." So I expect that he would approve of Humanure.

Yes, that is common. I expect that Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swagert would agree.

Yep. See the above URL reference.

No. For that, you will need to buy those pills from spammers. They aren't as entertaining as trolls.

No, I *am* my own cheap foreign labour.

if you took your hand off it long enough you may be surprised what happens.

if/when the bird flu comes as a pandemic and if the sewerage/reticulated water goes down you will need to consider this question seriously. http://www.jenkinspublishing.com/sawdustoilet.html or you can simply bung an old bog seat on a 10l paint pail and load it with composted saw dust, straw or even soil if nothing else is at hand.

Those spics are covered in ticks and they shit on the sprouts. Good way to get e. coli like on those soggy green onions at Chi-Chis. Your urine, applied to your garden @ 1 cup per gallon of water, works great. I bottle mine and sell it as plant food. See the assco website for all of your bottled bodily fluid needs.

Sorry, Beatle fans, didn't realize i was crossposting until too late.
It was JUST A JOKE, I don't really send my pee to people in the mail. Please call off the Homeland Security Department now, thank you.
If you want to buy pee from me you'll have to wait until I'm thirsty for beer. Have your cash in hand at the men's room door. Thank you again & I'm sorry.

Generally, good fertilizer doesn't come from meat eating animals.

You might try sprinkling your penis with those Chia Pet seeds and see what happens.

One technique promoted by a nineteenth century vicar was the "earth closet". Simply a pan in a box you shit in, then pull a lever to cover in dried earth. It was expected that one would then take the pan out to the midden, empty, and allow to rot. He found this made a highly effective fertiliser, and was less smelly, for self and neighbours than the w.c. and cess pit arrangement it replaced. He proposed this as a cheaper and less wasteful alternative to comventional plumbing.

he could recycle the soil 7 times before it became a nuisance. One farmer who experiemented with dump fertiliser grew swedes 1/3 bigger than those which did not use dump fertiliser.
