The Mind Wanders


Super Bowl is on and I have grown tired of pretending to watch. Too many time outs. I find them annoying. Most of the game I had a book on my ear bud, but I finished it and now here I sit, my mind wondering aimlessly.

I keep going back to that dried cat urine being used for yellow pigment in paint. I wonder who came up with that idea. Dog poop. There must be something dog poop could be useful for. I have plenty and it would be way easier to harvest than cat pee. Can't smell any worse that cat urine.

 Really, have you ever been house hunting and entered a home in which the carpet has been saturated with cat urine? You can yank that carpet out, but the smell will linger forever. Maybe the color lingers too and that makes it perfect for paint pigment ...... who knows?

So while there is only a minute left on the clock, I am trying to imagine what one could create out of dog poop. I am a frustrated inventor.

Like so many others who have been pondering the same thing I can say I too am stumped. :

Paperweights! Shellac those piles of dog poop and make paperweights for gag gifts. See what I did there? GAG gifts! I crack myself up.

Did you know that in ancient times they used human urine to keep their whites clean? And did you know that on the streets of ancient Rome they had pots for people to pee in for this purpose? How about many of the female hormone replacement medicines are made from pregnant mare urine? Or how about even today they use urine in the process of tanning hides? I could keep going and going but I think this is enough to ponder for now ;)

I did not even pretend to watch the Superbowl.

Inquiring minds want to know, and this is exactly how things are invented. Yellow paint...brown paint...think about it.
