Are these the byproducts of your putting the world's foie gras stocks beyond use with powerful chemicals TM?

Maybe Councillor Barber took Cameron's Big Society thing to heart and did a Liberal tidy-up?

You see that's when I'm shocked.

Dopamine1979 has spent an unhealthy amount of time on some of the most awful threads on this forum, and then comes out with a timely and witty gag.

Just received the Jan newsletter from the South London Urotherapy Recreational Partnership (SLURP).
Apparently this months meeting has been cancelled as their entire stock of refreshment has gone missing.

+1 for taxi driver urine. Seen a local cab driver dumping one in the gutter (not a number two...) along with his take away litter. That Worlingham Road spot looks a classic quiet spot for a cabbie to take a break.

Surely it's too dark to be pee?? If it is then it must be coming from some malfunctioning kidneys!

Yes, if that's piss then somebody is either extremely dehydrated (though surely they wouldn't be pissing that much in that case) or extremely ill, I should say. Not that I have any medical knowledge at all big grin

I'm in hiding today following a heavy weekend - hopefully they will still be there tomorrow!

It looks dark because it's in a large container. If you poured out a thin trickle it would be very much paler.

And I think urine does colour with age. It's actually used (was used) for fixing dyes - maybe we have a local craft dyer operating in ED?

Urine is Photochromatic and turns dark when exposed to Light (also air)

It has been used by POW's with Home-made Pinhole Cameras to take Secret Photographs.

It is a natural 'crude' photographic Developer

Looking at the photos of the bottles all lined up on the green box, the variation in colour is quite pronounced.
Do you think this could be a way of measuring Climate Change?
Hot days = dark liquid?
Cool days = lighter?

Bit like Dendrochronology (tree rings) we could use them to plot the temperature fluctuations in Worlingham Road.
3 x dark bottles could mean the hottest weekend in January since records began. (3 weeks ago???)

Fabulous! a wee thermometer?! Whatever next winking smiley

wasn't urine also used in the past to set colours in fabrics?

plus I'm sure I saw a film where a guy peed on a cotton sheet which apparently made it stronger so he could twist it round the bars of a jail cell to bend them and free himself... or did I just see that in a weird dream?!

oh and it's also apparently good for jellyfish stings, but it has to be 'donated' by someone else... so I'm told!

Ode of a plastic bottle.


Plastic bottles seen on a Worlingham Road wall,
placed there now, they totter a bit and tend to fall.
To see or not to see? That is the open question,
their fluid contents is now open to a suggestion.

The contents colour and shade varies quite a lot,
could it be the sun shining on them in this spot.
Now some have been rested on these boxes,
I don't think they belong to those local foxes.

Could it contain a new fuel that I can put my car,
if I chance it, and its no good, I wont get too far.
The weather is changing now getting very cold,
the bottles contents do not freeze, or so I am told.

I thought I might save some money with this liquid,
so this is the use I put to strange colour orange fluid.
I put it in my cars radiator to act as an anti freeze,
might be good idea of mine, might be wizard wheeze.

The car seems to be O.K. It still goes good like hell,
only thing now, inside there is such a dreadful smell.
I cant complain it has saved me just a bit of money,
soon got used to the smell, but others think its funny.

If you need anti freeze then take what your car needs,
I don't guarantee the fluid, will work at high speeds.
Remember to replace back your empties to be refilled,
think of others who can use it, who like you are chilled.

re. the colour - don't forget that when you look at what you've done in the loo, it's diluted by the water in the pan.

Mystery partly solved!!!!. My neighbour actually saw someone leaving the latest collection at the top of Worlingham Rd. She said it was a mini-cab but unfortunately didn't get the nunber.
Is there nothing that can be done about it?

Why on earth would a cabbie dump wee bottles in the same place? Unless it's some kind of urine-based vendetta? Somebody has to knock on the door of the house and raise the matter. Any volunteers? One for Councillor Wotsisname?

Some of those bottles have a very small opening. The mind boggles at how the cab driver does this - do they use a funnel?

Actually, I don't want to know!

Or worse, a catheter? crying smiley

Teddy the Taxi driver is known to be a bit small,
he was seen putting those bottles on the wall.
He said he got held up in the Blackwell Tunnel,
lucky man keeps in the car, his Antifreeze funnel.

It does make one wonder what happens in the future,
why he does not think to use and empty a catheter.
Think of the sights that we might have to endure,
will there be a sighting of a home made Manure?

So he certainly takes chances, and has the bottle,
slows right down then foot off of the throttle.
Nips to the wall to place his fresh product there,
then back into the car and drive off like a Hare.

Because it's a quiet spot on a route he does every day, maybe on the way home or back to the minicab firm. He doesn't want to take the indoors so leaves them on the street.

if you think about it - it's practically impossible to park near public toilets these days
always way too central with red routes etc

I just don't buy that as a theory. You've been watching too much Piss Marple...
