Agreed. My wife grew up by a pig farm in ND. Awful stench.

Agree about the Swine farm.
Nothing in farming reeks worse than Pig guano.
That stuff could be weaponized... Makes cow chips seem like parfum.

A buddy and I used to deer hunt private and public land in the Bellaire/Mancelona Michigan area.
One of the land areas we had access to bordered on a large pig farm. It was an unbearable stench and I have an IRON stomach. If that was the ONLY area we had to hunt, we still would not have been back.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

Default The Talking Outhouse

Many years ago, in the summer of 1975 or 76, my buddy Harold and his dad took me to Lake Cumberland with them for some water skiing and camping. Listening to late night radio, likely out of Nashville, we heard this humorous piece from Charlie Douglas on the subject of outhouses. It's a worthwhile 10 minutes and 36 seconds

Out houses still in use in Alaska for remote cabins, even some that are close but "dry", meaning no running water. When visiting a friend near Talkeetna, always check the Styrofoam seat by lifting first. His is fancy, not only Styrofoam seat, small woodstove for winter, has great big window for viewing Mt. Denali. Talk about a picture window...

I live Nikiski, Alaska. Middle of town. Have city water but no sewer service, septic tank only. 4-risers located in yard.

Of course there is a story about a bar with a two-holer from many years ago. Two customers were going at the same time, customer one reached down to lift the seat and a nickel fell out of his shirt pocket. Looking down, he reached into his pocket and grabbed a handful of bills, threw them down the hole. Customer 2 asked," what'd you do that for". Cust 1 replied, "You don't think I'm going down there just for a nickel do ya?"
