Million Dollar Outhouses.

I nominate the one at Panorama Point, about 3 miles and 1500 ft of elevation gain by trail from the trailhead at Paradise, Mt. Rainier National Park.  It's a thing of beauty, a natural hollow in the rock face enclosed by fine stonework, now a solar powered device dries the waste so only a small amount has to be airlifted out.  All construction materials, except the local stone, had to be helicoptered in.  Lovely handmade hinges and latch.  The inside is about 8 x 10 feet, except irregularly shaped.

What's the most disgusting bathroom/porta-potty you've been in?

The men's room at the intercity bus station in Chihuahua City, Mexico.  Second place goes to the men's room at the Greyhound station in Chicago, Illinois.  What is it about bus stations?

Dingleberry removal techniques

Removal

Wet a washcloth with warm tap water and use it to wipe the anus and surrounding areas.  Rinse the resulting brown streaks off the washcloth.  Repeat until streaks are no longer visible on the washcloth before it is rinsed.  Do not use soap, since it will irritate the skin around the anus.  For best results, do this during a shower, with a washcloth separate from the one used for soap application.

Prevention

Stools showing the greatest propensity to leave bits of fecal matter clinging to hair around the anus have a sticky, clayey texture that is comparable to Play-Doh or used chewing gum.  This typically results from stool overconsolidation as a result of too little water, too little dietary fiber, or both, and can be effectively prevented by maintaining fiber intake at 100% of the RDA (minimum) on an ongoing basis, and drinking at least eight glasses of water daily (each glass containing about two cups).

About the only one I can think of in usage is "nth", such as the phrase like "to the nth power".

When people pronounce NHTSA as a word, the hairs on the back of my neck stand straight up because it's an acronym; not some jarring, sneezing sound.

Well, if it is an acronym, then it is indeed pronounced "nit-suh."

I suppose "initialism" was the word I was looking for ; I thought all the time "acronyms" meant any word or spelling-out of initials.

Huh.

One I'd like to see but I don't think we'll get; Historic National Park Road Maps.

Extracts are available here:

http://npshistory.com/brochures/index.htm

The NPS term of art for these brochures is apparently "site folder."

My own brochure collection (less than a shelf foot for over 20 years' worth of park visits) is all post-Unigrid.  These days it seems to be more common to fade the 100-point black strip at the top into the cover photo, and there also seems to have been a change in house typeface (formerly Helvetica, now something that looks very like Roissy; I have two different editions of the Yellowstone brochure, one before the change and one following it).
