I know it's not what you want, but I'm considering getting a
construction outhouse - for workers at a job site, which is usually an
established home for my jobs. I'm thinking about one of the tent models:
I'm wondering about their "Foldable Commode/Toilet Chair". Do they mean
the tank folds up? Or does the chair just have a hole in it?
It's just something with a hole in it, and there are other options:
It seems like if the user had diarrhea, the legs of the chair would get
Obviously most or all of you guys never had the pleasure of using a Military
field outhouse or latrine.
Construction is similar to domestic outhouses of old but underneath the
seats is placed the bottom third of a 50 gal drum filled with diesel oil.
These drums were pulled out and set afire reducing the contents to ash and
perfuming the area rather uniquely.
Sometimes this process did not go as intended.
Ahhh. Fomenting a religious war, are ya, Timmy? Well, let's get it on.
Here's a little fodder:
Good ol' boy xian Missaurans murdered 120 Mormons, including women and
children, at Haun's Mill in the 1830's. The Lt. Governor of Missouri,
Lilburn Boggs, declared open season on Mormons.
Hasn't worked for me. The minute you start on a religious discussion,
you loose, they'll never give up. The only thing that works for me is
outright rudeness. The last time as I came to the door I saw the
'watchtower' sticking out of the briefcase, open door and say
instantely "I'm not interested in your cult, leave NOW!" They did
without a word.
In a certain southern college town around 1977, all you had to do was
tell them (the Mormons, too) you attended the church of Christ, and
they'd get out of the door as quick as they could. The Bible knowledge
reputation got around fast.
I am never bothered by them rapscallions no more ever scents
I installed a handy self-aiming, high-pressure lawn
"Self-aiming, high-pressure lawn sprinklers - only $99.95"
(Mormons and Catholics pay 5% more. Jews get it wholesale
I enjoy talking about Jesus. It is usually a good discussion -- even when
discussing with folks who have MAJOR differences of opinion.
One thing I've noticed about LDS / Mormons. We're seldom upset by others
having different views.
