    When nature calls; beats a minimum hour round trip to accomplish same.
    You know, before she starts hollering....

    I'll bet the handwheel connects to a gate valve, top might have some kind of seal, and composting occurs elsewhere. Pretty sure methane isn't a welcome addition to mine atmosphere.
    Being a two holer, you could comment to your adjacent workmate; Nice seats! Aren't you glad they invented flathead screws?

    Yep sometimes when you got to go you really got to go.
    Once when I was about 16 taking my morning constitutional in our 2 holer outhouse a visiting Aunt burst in and flopped down on the adjacent hole Saying sorry but I just couldn't wait.
    My cousins later made jokes about what could I have been doing in there with their mom

    I reckon the hand wheel is a multi task one. Emptying the compost, & For holding on when there are great explosions in the mine... & for when there are tremmors from explosions and the dunny carts brakes fail.
    My dad told me of a friend with a motor bike who ran into the back of a night soil truck in the middle of the night and was hospitalised for days.True story!

    He must have been deep in ..it. Reminds me of the Decameron.

    cheers & off to lunch ...later.
