Their intrigue into human feces begins with a story of an Inuit man who left his family and survived alone in a frozen wilderness. As the story goes, the family took everything away from the man to dissuade him from living outside the igloo settlement. He ventured out anyway, defecating, and then sharpening his feces with his spit. According to the book, Shadows in the Sun, (Davis, 1998), the Inuit man gutted a dog with his feces knife, fashioned a sled out of the dog’s rib cage, and disappeared into the darkness. The story is an adaptation from the auto-biography of Peter Freuchen, a Danish arctic explorer who allegedly dug himself out of a pit of snow by crafting a chisel-like instrument from his own feces (Freuchen, 1953).
Wanting to test these historic claims, the Ohio scientists put the feces experiment to the test. “Given the current ambiguity surrounding Davis' (1998) account of an Inuit using his own frozen feces as a knife, we conducted an experiment to test whether such a knife can function,” the scientists wrote.
Starting out, one of the scientists went on an eight-day, high-protein diet that is similar to that of an Inuit man. The scientists went to great lengths to replicate the consistency of the poop used in the stories. For three days the scientist ate fruit, vegetables, and carbohydrates. The remaining days, the diet was high in protein and essential fatty acids. By day four he began to defecate regularly for five days straight. The scientists preserved the poop at -20 degrees Celsius and shaped it using a variety of ceramic molds. They even “hand shaped” some of the knives from their fellow man's poop.
When it was time to put the poop to the test, they secured pig hide, animal muscles, and animal tendons. The animal parts were thawed at precisely four degrees Celsius before the cutting began. The scientists sharpened the poop with a metal file and kept the feces at minus 50 degrees Celsius before they did the “cutting.”
The poop could not penetrate the hide and was terribly ineffective as a cutting instrument. “Despite the hide being cold from refrigeration, instead of slicing through it, the knife-edge simply melted upon contact, leaving streaks of fecal matter,” the scientists remarked.
Not satisfied with the results, another one of the scientists volunteered to put his poop to the test. Trying really hard, the next scientist defecated. His crap, handcrafted into a knife, did no damage to the hide and couldn’t even cut into the subcutaneous fat on the underside of the hide. Grappling each other’s poop, the scientists continued to smear their feces all over dead animal hides.
The scientists lament, “Societal narratives and policies are often constructed from anthropological and scientific claims.” Even though popular, historic claims are readily accepted as the norm, they must be tested. (See more reporting on weird science at WeirdScienceNews.com)
Speaking of untested filth, what about vaccines? Vaccines are widely accepted as immunizations in the scientific community...
Can you really make effective immunizations from dead babies, monkey kidneys, heavy metals, and embalming fluid? Pharma continues to sell the public on the notion that vaccines build immunity to specific diseases, even though mumps and polio outbreaks are now linked to vaccine-derived viruses. It’s time for scientists to start researching vaccine injury, vaccine-derived viral outbreaks, and the long term cause and effect of injecting filth into the human body. It's time for the the Department of Health and Human Services to test vaccines against a saline placebo in a double-blinded, randomized clinical trail. It's time for an objective study that investigates the CDC's expansive pediatric vaccine schedule and compares it to children who have not been vaccinated. It's time to compensate the tens of thousands of people who have reported acute vaccine injuries to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting database.
