Yikes

While reading a primitive--from Skins's island, of course--I've learned that an "average" human colon stores as much as 25 pounds of, uh, solid waste matter.

Whoa. Imagine what a mess that would make, if someone were to be surprised in a manner that he loses control of the muscles in his alimentary canal, involuntarily spurting out the contents.

Seriously though, is this realistic?

I dunno if it is; if it is, it seems to me it would be commonly used as a trick to quick-reduce one's weight--going from 175 pounds down to 150, for example--simply by sitting on the commode and thoroughly unloading the bowels, leaving not an ounce behind.

But it doesn't appear to be a common technique for losing weight, so I'm skeptical. One, or at the most, two pounds, of it is my guess.

1. I've had

a colonoscopy and the most I lost was a couple of pounds. The prep cleaned me right out.

But who knows maybe some people are full of shit.

3. Oh now, don't be getting on my case, sir, because you don't know how this

transpired.

I was reading an ancient thread from Skins's island, 2003, about the matter, in which the statement was made.

And the primitive kindly provided a link, to which I went, and saw it'd verified what the primitive said.

However, because the link was to a left-wing web-site and hence untrustworthy, I went and googled it....finding that lo and behold, the source hadn't lied at all.

If you would read my original posts more carefully (or better yet, not at all, if one's going to be sloppy in reading comprehension), you'd be less likely to make a fool of yourself by jumping all over me.

You're better than that, sir, you're brighter than that, and I encourage you to be so.
