Flush with success

Ain't progress wonderful?

AS the world celebrates World Toilet Day today, sanitation experts have called for the end of the flushing dunny to save water and provide fertilizer for crops.

Leading health advocates have called for the use of "dry" toilets which separate urine from faeces and remove the need to flush.

Speaking at the recent World Toilet Summit in Macau, World Toilet Organisation founder Jack Sims said the concept of the flushing toilet was unsustainable.

We will save the planet by reducing all societies to third-world status. I'm kind of rushed for time -- aything else I'm supposed to feel guilty about today?

OK, Leo...explain to me why I'm suddenly feeling one fo those "WTF?" moments...puh-lease!
(maybe I just need to take a dump?)

And isn't human feces for fertilizer rather a "no-no"?
...But if it were to become the next "alternative fuel", then maybe I'd get onboard with THAT...maybe.

Wow, now that's progress. In the meantime though, could you get me an address for the proponents of this wonder machine? I'll send my waste to their address until they get congress and the Obamaettes on board and force me to buy one.
