Re. the pH stuff. This is an odd one, I won't go into details but some time ago in Poland my shit was testing pH 13 on litmus paper. What initially alerted me, aside feeling fecking weird, was Polish toilets having a kind of shelf that your shit just sits on until you flush it away and it reeked acridly like bleach. Is this in any way normal..I never got a proper medical analysis done...of the shit...had one done of me, inconclusive as to cause.
I read that as APDS and thought, "**** me, that was some pretty thick card!"Ah, the heady days at AAC Harrogate in '75 punching cards during ADPS (Automatic Data Processing Systems). The "computer" was the size of a truck with lights flashing here, there and everywhere.
