When I was a kid, my grandparents had an outside lavatory with a can...the can man would come weekly and pick it up.

When I was a teenager, it was reported that the can man had suffered a heart attack while walking along the trench at the sewage treatment plant.

He was found inturd.

Joking apart the origin of some words is actually very interesting since they have origins from Scandinavia, France , India etc. Maybe it's worth a serious discussion sometime?


My definition of an expert in any field is a person who knows enough about what's really going on to be scared.

It would be a long discussion as there are many words in many languages.

Did you know Dampier (explorer decades before Ctn. Cook) saw wall mounted fold down bunk beds somewhere in the western hemisphere.
The natives called them babacue, or some such.
Meat smokers used wall mounted fold down shelves and the word bar-B-que (sp?) developed.

I read a great book about Dampier.
