Ain't no Baby Ruth...code brown! CODE BROWN!


Memorial Day weekend is coming up and with it the opening of public pools around the nation.

While Ryan Lochte has been singled out for creating a Code Yeller now and then, it's hardly a big deal when compared to the dreaded Code Brown.  It's number two that's public (pool) enemy number 1.  Read more here.

“Let’s imagine 1,000 kids go to a water park. They have as much as 10 grams of feces on their rear ends,” she said. “We are now talking about 10,000 grams or 10 kg. That translates to 24 pounds of poop in the water.”

Bullcorn!!  10 kilograms of doodoo is only 22 pounds of poopoo.  Get yer danged conversions straight!

    agreed.

    probably the number one number two story we've managed to squeeze in.

    we're flushed with pride here at the texas swimming blog.

    I think what really disgusts me is wondering how they collected data to figure out the "10g/bum" figure. Before you can extrapolate, you have to collect a statistically significant sample.

    Gag me!

    might not have been such a messy study.

    could have gathered info indirectly:

    'toilet paper use at the water park is down about ten percent this year'

    This is still a crappy story. You need to stand on a stool to get out of it. This must be the number 1 story on number 2 on this blog. Just flush it. It's not worth clogging up this blog. Some folks would die eria to see it. Please wipe the slate clean.
