You have to check a box that you believe climate change is real to submit a photo. :)

I have no idea how these people got their poop wedged into their scanner, or why.

stool for posterity

Add an s to the first noun and you officially have the best band name.

I read this as two directives. Go to seed.com and poop on your phone.

I'll contribute, and generally support the cause, but I am also in A Mood right now and will comment that this is another private venture that relies on the public doing the heavy lifting*, much like Amazon and Yelp rely on volunteer reviewers for their private profit.

*Or dropping, as it were.

I guess the Bristol stool scale is too old school.

Is this something you'd need a German toilet to understand?

I'm surprised to discover that the Bristol Stool Scale, a simple diagnostic tool requiring no technology, was developed in 1997, not 1897 or 1797.

I was at a talk about community internet stuff, and a young angry activist asked a lot of questions, very good but after we rode the elevator and they were amazed that mood or feelings could be measured. My example was how relatively recently (historically speaking) temperature was not measurable. Wish I'd known about this scale... well I'd still have used temp as an example.

(had a more topical comment but nooo, just can't)

Ah yes, then you give your doctor a data dump.



I am so sorry I'll show myself out

Oh I wish I'd known about this a week ago. That movement made a splash bigger than Beethoven's fifth. Srsly, I was sitting higher when I was done. The lid barely closed. I think it had a head.

> You’ll be prompted to enter your email address and whether you’re on a morning, afternoon, or evening poop schedule.

I do not understand the question.
