Friday Weird Science: Fatty Feces or Gassy Guano?

Does your poop float? Does it sink? Do you have floaters and sinkers depending on the day?

Maybe you're one of those people that never looks to see.

Nah, don't lie. You look.

So if you have looked, surely you've wondered...what makes poop FLOAT? I seem to recall asking my mother this once as a kid and she told me it was fiber and that fiber floats. Since I have now found out that, chemically, that's a dirty lie (she didn't know, so it wasn't intentional, and she always has promoted a high fiber diet), I continued to wonder...why does some poop float while other poop sinks?

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. As it were.

I just made up 2 quarts of my infamous tomato, black bean & corn salsa - 2 serranos, 2 jalapenos, 1 habanero and 1 bhut jalokia, along with 1 large nasty yellow onion and some Korean garlic that could bite your face off all by itself. Also cilantro, parsley, lime juice, etc.

Good stuff :D

I can think of several Neowin community members who deserve to be stuck with Type 1 for the rest of their life.
