What a great thread, and so funny.

Well, as for the pee. The active ingredient is urea which breaks down into ammonia. A fellow gardener in my area told me to douse my pile with store-bought ammonia, and cover the pile with black plastic. This will heat the pile up in a hurry. The hot weather will help. But I think the peeing outside idea is much more fun.

Who mentioned a sawdust toilet? What is this? With 3 kids and 5 adults in my house, I would love to save on my water bill!!!

You guys rock!!!
