Daily Weird #38 Using the toilet leads to rich discovery.
Are you done in there yet??
After discovering phosphate in the toilet area of an expedition in Australia, the geologist exclaimed, “And we thought we were on sterile ground!” ,,,proving once again that global warming is a farce, and scientists are out of touch with reality.
I’ve used my restroom more than once, and can say with certainty that no matter what I might find in there, I would never consider it “sterile ground.”
It appears these really bright men and women, who no doubt were often bullied in school for their lack of ability to identify sterile items, were searching in Australia for a certain something of a valuable nature. They put up their campsite and promptly dug a hole for use as a toilet. They may be out of touch with reality, but even brainiacs recognize the need for a potty hole.
All was going along as usual, until one of the geologists, while availing himself of the luxury bathroom accommodations, got bored and started moving rocks around with his feet while waiting for the evacuation to occur. It’s important to note that the following may never have happened had the geologist had an issue of National Geographic, or Redbook.
Suddenly he realized that the rocks weren’t rocks. Or rather, they were rocks, but very special rocks. Pulling himself together, and promising his colon he would finish what he started later, the scientist ran and grabbed a spectrometer. Now, due to the fact that Jimmy Neutron is a very informative show, I'm pretty sure a spectrometer is a hand held device that can tell you if you are seeing what you think you are seeing, or maybe it's a portable DVD player... I'm not 100% positive.
The spectrometer said, “Good job Mr. Pooper, you have discovered phosphate, along with other useless rocks and some excrement. (See my confusion. I've known DVDs to say stuff like that)
Sadly, the company that sent the geologists out to scour the land, Rum Jungle Resources, explained to the group that they were out in the outback to look for new rum sources not this phosphate crap. They were all chastised severely and sent to bed with no dinner.
The scientists did, however, move their toilet site in case someone else came along who wanted to harvest the useless phosphate. Sadly, however, the team was never able to find any rum. Also, because I know you're wondering, the geologist who made the discovery did finally get to finish his business.
