Back in the day guano (bird shit from islands) was a large source of nitrogen fertilizer.
Imagine a voyage on a ship literally full of shit that you make your living.
[edit to add]
Just a possible side-line money maker while taking time off from that tiresome organic chemistry .

... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

I fear that's fake.
  • terribly botched sky
  • reflection of nearby trees in the windowpanes
  • nothing to support that very long deck
  • not a ripple in all that "water"
  • pine (?) trees don't grow with their feet in the water
  • different version, so it's already manipulated:

But perhaps that was evident? :notsure:

This looks like a job for ed!

He's an expert in rotation.

Oh wait, nevermind. This is reflection, not rotation.

Ed don't know shit about reflection. :mrgreen:

https://wwmt.com/news/nation-world/port ... -mans-home
Over the past year or so, one man built all of it in some woods off Airport Way near Northeast 138th Avenue. A two-story wooden compound with a kitchen, bedrooms and even a walk-in closet. The home is complete with vinyl windows, standard sized doors, solar power and, of course, a doorbell.

The man who built it only wants to go by the name Mikey. When asked why he built it, he simply said, “Somewhere to live. I hate tents.”

But there is nothing simple about Mikey’s “house.” Prior to its demolition he allowed us to tour his home. The rooftop decks (2) are reached by stairs that were carefully and creatively cut from wooden wire spools. It is fully furnished with several couches, chairs, side tables and coffee tables. A clock hangs, where a clock would hang. He even has fire extinguishers. Mikey estimates the total home size at 2,500 square feet.

“It is like normal living without plumbing,” Mikey said.

↑ I'm sure the acoustics are fabulous. :)

(Which reminded me of a stay in Lesbos, of all places, in a third-rate hotel with the window opening on a small inner courtyard and a lady somewhere having a very noisy, albeit pleasant, night…)

I can also see laundry hanging out a few windows. People aren't actually living in those, are they ?
