Better Cover Your Head...!

I know we are all familiar with the term "when the sh*t hits the fan", right? Well, in this case that saying is taken to a whole new level.

Falling Poo Over Canada

The city of Kelowna in British Columbia has an unusual problem on its hands—poo is raining from the skies.

This all started on May 9. Local resident Susan Allen and her son were stopped at a red light when a brown, smelly liquid started falling onto their car. Unfortunately for them, they had the sunroof open, and both mother and son were pelted with the foul fluid. They made an emergency stop at the nearest car wash to hose themselves off.

Allen waited for weeks before coming forward, as she was embarrassed by the incident. Eventually, she decided to share her story after becoming convinced that authorities were giving her the runaround.

Kelowna Airport officials said they received and reviewed a complaint but that there was no aircraft in the vicinity at the time of the incident. Allen disagrees, saying she saw an airplane flying over shortly before the feces started falling.

Since then, several other people have come forward with similar experiences, and Transport Canada has launched an official investigation.[1] Some experts believe this is the result of the phenomenon known as “blue ice.” It happens when sewage or other liquids leak and freeze on the outside of the plane mid-flight at high altitudes. As the aircraft descends, and temperatures get warmer, the blue ice melts and falls off.

What ever the cause, I don't think I would driving around with the top down for a bit, ya know...just in case.

Coffee out on the patio one more time.

Back in the old days some military aircraft urinals went directly to a hole in the outside skin of the aircraft.

Sure could mess up the shine on a car, not to mention what it would do to a hair style.
