Remember the Ty-D-Bol man in his tiny boat?
Maybe we're all just floating in some giant cosmic toilet?

Naw, that's stupid. We'd have been flushed by now.

Now that Ron has brought it up, maybe there is a market for poop dye?
You guys with above the waterline poop discharges could make things much more interesting with different colors of poop. Red and Green for Christmas, Red, White and Blue for July 4th, Pink for Easter, Green for Earth Day.

Send me a thousand dollars and I'll send you a share of stock in my poop dye business.

There's no business like the poop dye business since everyone has to do their business.

Holy Crap! I thought I was kidding about poop dye. Seems California is going to mandate it.
Mandatory Dye Tablets for Your Black tank??

The price of a share in Poop Dye Inc. just went up to $2000.

In Avalon (CA) the harbor master flusher a dye pellet in each of your heads upon arrival. They can effectively mark almost 100% of boats, since you can't get a mooring without checking in. The irony is that water quality looked great but still has a very high bacteria content. They finally figured out that the city's sewer system was leaching into the harbor. That may have been fixed in the last few years.

My Bride was a world class knitter (9) books and now is a weaver.

She has been dieing yard for decades , but when washing an item for the first time always uses a loose die absorbing sheet.

Works ,, It catches the loose die and her new fabric doesnt.

Sounds like a product that could be dumped before hand into a holding tank that eats BLUE DIE would be a big seller.

Any chemists on the board???

"Does poop dye show up at night?"
Poop Dye Inc. will produce a dye that becomes clear thirty seconds after you flush.
Don't tell the Poop Police.

It's hard to imagine someone walking around a marina all night looking for "poop dye".

Allowing someone to board your boat and put chemicals in your head(s) seems pretty intrusive to me. It's the government out of control.

But officer, that's not Poop Dye, that's bioluminescent plankton.

I've got a couple of jars of industrial dye tablets used for leak testing and tracing. Magenta and vivid yellow.

With those and a slingshot, I could keep the poop police busy for weeks.

One time, when the Avalon Harbor Patrol had come on board to flush the dye down our heads, a drill we have been through a bunch of times, we got to talking and he told a funny story.

It seems that he went aboard a boat whose owner was completely unfamiliar with even the concept of the dye, so the officer explained that they need a mechanism to discourage people from contaminating the harbor waters and that they dye is very obvious if it gets in the harbor. The boater didn't seem to understand that the procedure was to flush a dye tablet down the heads, so the officer decided to have some fun. He explained to the boat owner and his family that they must each swallow a pill -- that was their poo and pee would be marked and if any ended up in the bay everyone would know instantly. Before the officer could stop the owner, who had been inspecting a pellet, the owner swallowed the pellet. Apparently, no harm done.

Traveler, I don't know if that's a true story or not but it doesn't matter. It's a great story.
