For all the people saying she has wasted her time discussing where our poop goes post flush and the resulting high level of detail being indicative of her supposedly low level of maturity, get over yourselves.
Here is some advice: thank your parents and not some magical fat man for getting you gifts on Christmas; corn is cheap because the government subsidizes the crop; and poop doesn't just disappear into the other side of the looking glass.
The word 'poop' is looked upon unfavorably and even its mere mention in topics incites giggles and the averting of the eyes. If I showed you how poop could be turned into gold, I bet a lot of you be laying on your backsides at this very moment, frantically digging at your own personal mines. Nope! Poop is dirty and waste by definition. Poop alchemy is relatively unknown to most of us and the process of turning it into gold remains just as elusive as it were to the commoners of yester-year...
It's high time we as Humans removed all the fantasy involving our consumption habits. The public perception of how we receive food is often glamorized ie. is it really just sunshine and a caring heart that brings steak into our homes and available on our menus?
Where does the meat come from? How are the animals raised? How are the farmers able to feed the animals? Does the food chain end when we are done eating the animal?
Thank you Miss Shimer for an informative close-up on something I have personally overlooked (and Mr. Ryan for a snazzy diagram).
Just because it is out of our sight, does not mean it is out of our lives and ironically, even when we turn our noses up to it...
its presence only becomes stronger.
