Farce-Side: Also, why in the hell does he need THREE tanks?
Marcus Aurelius: $20k seems a bit steep for a shiat hole.
markie_farkie: Marcus Aurelius: "I said, 'When you're out in the woods, where do you go to the bathroom?' " Huyett recalled. "He couldn't answer me."Well that's pretty obvious, isn't it? First you find a bear, and then you watch where he shiats.NO NO NO NO NO..You follow the Pope....
Dadoody: What's wrong with the outhouse?As long as the ventilation is proper and its not polluting any ground water, seems fine.As far as the environment go, the feces from a lone 77-year old man will probably be an improvement to the environment vs all the other fertilizers and fracking that they do in other communities.
nekom: What I don't get, all of this mandatory stuff these day
Pocket Ninja: Unless it can be definitely proven that this outhouse is in some fashion causing harm to his neighbors or the larger community, which seems unlikely, this is probably one of those situations where some sort of specific, individual grandfather exemption from the rules is appropriate. Not that I'd expect anything appropriate to happen as a result of this, of course.
nekom: Farce-Side: Sounds like a money grab to me. Who's to tell me where I can and cannot shiat? I'm pretty sure that's in one of the amendments somewhere.Also, why in the hell does he need THREE tanks? My one family house has only one tank and it works pretty good.There's a LOT of wacky new regulations to that kind of thing. What we had prior to sewage being forced on us was a single concrete tank, same as the old house we lived in had and same as the house I recently bought has. Just a big concrete tank with a concrete lid, and a spider web of leech beds going out in various directions. I can assure you that it would NOT be sufficient to modern code, though it worked perfectly fine, just needed sucked out once a decade or so. We filled one in because it was exposed on the surface and may have posed a hazard (6 year old running around here), my parents old one is underneath their deck, and mine I will probably just get a piece of thick sheet metal and cover it back up once I get sewage dug.What I don't get, all of this mandatory stuff these days, is how in the everloving fark poor people are supposed to live around here. We are rather well off, but the median family income here is only $35K. It's getting to the point where it's against the law to be poor.
