There’s something sad about a nearly 200 year-old science museum resorting to shitology to stay relevant. Philadelphia’s Academy of Natural Sciences is opening an exhibit entitled, "The Scoop on Poop: The Science of what Animals Leave Behind." From the exhibit website:
Visitors are invited to listen in on an animal’s digestive system,
learn the language of poop in countries around the world, examine fecal
samples in a veterinarian’s lab, compete in dung beetle races, track
wild animals by clues left in scat, see how long it takes an elephant
to poop their body weight, improve their "#2 IQ" in stool school, and meet a dinosaur dung detective.
I can pay $10 to learn how long it takes an elephant to manufacture its own mass in manure? Perhaps this is a sign that the free market is a failure when it comes to museums and education . . .
