No I think the peeing sections in swimming pools is more like some of the mean assed stuff that goes on in these threads. Invisible to most, while spreading threw the entire pool of unknowing innocent swimmers with viral infectious filth. Designed to poison or sicken insidiously those who refuse to dive into the deep end. A stupid thing to ponder indeed.

They were used for other things or simply were not popular. In the old days, when pharmacists made their own medicines and remedies, these concoctions were assigned letters or numbers to make future identification and identical prescriptions possible. So rather than say, "You know that stuff you made up for me last week..." you could give them the formula number.

That is the same reason why there is a Formula 666 cough syrup. It apparently did a Hell of a job (pun intended) and everyone kept asking for it. One blogger harassed the company over the name and even drew the attention of their attorney. After a while, the blogger had the attorney laughing too.

Of course, some think the H is for where it is to be applied, since it "prepares hineys."

They can be. Sure, the smoking is mostly contained to one section, but the fumes still travel. Urine in the water would be about the same since it would disperse into the rest. They could do a better job at containing the smoking section and using thick insulation, adding a transition room, and using a separate ventilation system. But then, the smokers would still carry the odor on their clothes, and the entry doors would need to be opened. I guess they can give all the servers hazard suits with full respirators.

In 1850 there were about 10,000 horses in NYC. Who cleaned up?

At that time, it was the Irish and "Italians*".

Little known made up fact - The Chinese were put to work on the railroads so they could be shipped to the east coast just to clean up after the horses.

The invention of the automobile caused a scandalous flip-flop of national policy of H1B visas for "Horse sweepers" from China. It was in all the papers.

*Italy didn't become a unified country until 1861.

If you observe the earth rotation from the equator, it revolves counter clockwise.

If you observe the earth's orbit from the equator of the sun, the earth orbits counter clockwise.

This leads me to conclude that the clock was invented by someone south of the equator of the earth and the sun.

Therefore: aliens established our system of timekeeping because they approached the solar system and the earth from the south poles.

Which might explain their rumored preference of examining us from our "southern" orifice.

Orange with the apple? Hmmm. That is like the story of what an angry father allegedly did. The son borrowed the family van and went out and smoked pot in it with friends. The state confiscated the vehicle as used for the purposes of drugs even though it was technically stolen. The father tried in vain to get his van back. So being a biochemist he decided to attack one of their state symbols - the orange plant. He supposedly engineered a retrovirus to insert THC-producing genes into the orange genome. Then he distributed the seeds produced by his oranges. While nobody could charge him with anything, this did earn him a visit from the US Attorney General. Janet Reno supposedly showed up at his door. She and the feds asked him to stop distributing his pot orange seeds.
I liked his rationale. You would not be able to tell a pot orange from a regular orange just by looking at it. Oranges are legal, and so is eating them. So a person could get high in public without scrutiny, since ingesting a pot orange is no different than eating any other kind. So the only way to stop people from getting high that way would be to ban every orange.
As for apples, maybe they could splice in genes from the coca plant or the poppy plant.
Awesome!
