Oznog: BronyMedic: That boy crawled through over a mile and a half of the foulest water I could ever imagine. Why he chose enchalada night, I'll never know.

What was with that movie, anyways?

Would a prison actually use a sanitary sewer emptying out into a ditch? Lacking a city sewer system, I figured you'd use a septic tank. But I dunno- what might a prison built in this era use? I know there was a time when it was fashionable to simply route the pipe to the nearest river, but the movie started in 1947, even though the construction of the prison would have preceded that.

Now a STORM sewer which carries runoff water would dump out somewhere. But that wouldn't likely run through a prison building. And in any case, the movie specified a pipe of shiat. And it wasn't flooded by the downpour depicted on-camera. Sanitary sewer.

Also, would a sanitary sewer have breathable air? It kinda seems unlikely. Sewer gases aren't just foul-smelling, they're toxic and you'd pass out very quickly. Sewer gases are hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides- and very little oxygen.

The toilet end doesn't inject any fresh air into it, even if the far end were strangely open as shown, I don't think there's be much migrating back up the length of it. And 1500ft is far, far too long to go holding one's breath for.


Mandatory vent pipes = vertical = chimney.... warmer air rises up vents, pulls fresh air into sewer pipe.

Biner: BronyMedic: Biner: Hell, I got my first piece of ass in The Tunnels.

That tapeworm said the same thing about you.

LOL. That might just explain why I've weighed 87 pounds all my adult life, despite being 6' 3" tall.


Would your nickname be 'weird Harold' ?

We crawled all over through LAs storm drain system when I was a kid. Near our house there was one large opening into the LA River that did not have a grate. Over the top, someone had painted "King Kong's Butt Hole".

Dimensio: I remember thinking that was probably the length of five Ping-Pong tables.

/Not so good with the maths.

Both the original novella and movie state that the 'Shank was built a long,long time ago, and that there were never any big effort to completely modernize the facilities, and the story in either case didn't take place any later than the early 60's. So, old prison, old times
