I took some shoes to the shoeman for a re dye. I don't actually know the shoeman, but when I walked in the door he yelled at me – "the world is a fucked up place". Who am I to argue. I said – "sure is". He then read me an article from the newspaper.
Toilet home 'may have traumatised' compost worms
A New Zealand inventor has been forced to defend the use of worms in a composting toilet he has developed after officials became concerned that the creatures might become traumatised by the procedure.
Coll Bell was told to get an expert's report on the mental impact on the tiger worms being used after an official became concerned during a site visit.
He says the official felt that the worms were being unfairly treated, being expected to deal with human faeces, and that it could affect them in a psychological way.
Mr Bell was told he had to get someone with the necessary qualifications to say the worms were happy.
A vermiculture consultant was called in and she has found the worms are in excellent health and breeding happily.
Now that is pretty fucked up.
