Answer a question to continue reading the page? I thought we didn't allow links to that sort of crap.

Or is this supposed to be a symbolic representation of what a field full of human-generated crap looks like?

ABP/NoScript fixed that for me, here's the text of the article

ROCKLAND, Maine - The high level of fecal bacteria on the grounds of a popular Rockland park is from humans, not dogs.
http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fbangordailynews.com%2F2014%2 F 07%2F11%2Fnews%2Fmidcoast%2Fsinkholes-combine-with-e-coli-suspected-fr om-dog-poop-to-force-closure-of-rockland-waterfront-park%2F%3Fref%3Dse arch&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNG9-UIzkpiZ4wX1RcoJOXgPmJ8dgA&ref=inline">Sn ow Marine Park has been closed since July 10 because of high levels of E. coli, suspected of coming from dog waste, discovered on the grounds.
Tests conducted by the city, however, show that the E. coli comes from humans, City Manager Tom Luttrell told city councilors during their meeting Monday night.
Where that waste is coming from, however, is still unresolved, though suspicions have now turned to three homes whose sewer lines are hooked up to a storm drain that dumps into the harbor.
The city had earlier figured out that high levels of E. coli in the waters off the park are the result of sewage coming from the three homes via the storm drain.
Wastewater Plant Director Terry Pinto told the BDN Tuesday that 60 years ago, all sewage went into the harbor. The problem was that when the sewer plant and pump stations were built in the 1970s, it was not known that this storm drain was connected to a sewer line and thus was not connected to the sewer system.
Pinto explained that at high tide E. coli-contaminated water from the harbor could be washing up on shore or seeping up from underground into the park.
Repairs to fix the discharge from the three homes now are nearly complete, Pinto said.
The director said once the repairs are done, the city will wait two to three weeks and test again to see if the problems in the water and on the grounds have been resolved.
In the meantime, Snow Marine Park will remain closed. The city had workers pick up considerable dog wastes and then spread lime on the ground before it tested to determine the species of the E. coli.

Perhaps your random clicking leads to surveys reporting reality TV and Justin bieber are good things.

Study it out. You could be the problem.

As for the story...it was Frank. Poop is funny.

My cats poop is already so big if a friend did that I wouldn't even notice.

So, bottomline -- the poopage didn't get there because the town had a mad shiatter running around pinching off loafs on the park grounds.  It got there because a couple of houses were tied into a storm drain that washed the turds out onto the park grounds.  Okay, then everything is all right then.  Carry on.

No, but I used to imagine how hilarious it'd be to see my cats' reactions.  I know the one of them would slink around with his tail poofed out six inches in diameter for WEEKS.  "OMG WTF did that ???"

FTA: "The problem was that when the sewer plant and pump stations were built in the 1970s, it was not known that this storm drain was connected to a sewer line and thus was not connected to the sewer system. "

So, are those homeowners getting refunds for their sewer taxes they paid since the 70s? Because we all know THAT bill never failed to show up.

I don't need to read that book.  I go 2-3 times a day everyday like clockwork.  When I was a kid however remember being constipated quite often.  Sometimes only going a couple times a week.  I think because I'm eating a lot of whole grains, fruits and vegetables in my adult years.  When I was a kid, Mom made more traditional meals of meat and potatoes.  All I know is now I spend lots of time on the bowl.
