Rotary Outhouse

A low maintenance six shooter.

We at RockCo proudly introduce the Rotary Outhouse. Six pits are augered in a circular pattern. A large wooden disk of sufficient diameter to cover all six pits is skewered on an axle mounted amid the pits, a la playground carousel [link]. An outhouse is mounted on the disk such that it opens onto one of the six pits, and the disk pegged in place. When the pit is sufficiently full it is topped with dirt and the disk is rotated to the adjacent pit.

       proudly?...   

       err, why not a continuous circle. Or completely free-range.

       I thought you were going to have each pit dry out for six months, whereupon you would recover the now sterile residue as fertiliser.

       Or, just have 6 outhouses...

       I thought about that but figured individual holes would be less likely to cave in than a trench.

       As a young girl, I had to use the outhouse when the pipes indoors froze in Winter. My brother would escort me out there, and then stand and wait while I did my doodie.   

       Hence, I know my outhouses and this idea is stellar. Love it. Yay. Ohhhhh yeah. +++++

       Given the proliferation of semi-automatic systems revolvers are not the standby they used to be for many.

       If the outhouse could revolve fast enough, you could avoid the need for a pit altogether. In fact, make the speed high enough, and put the seat on one of the walls, as a sort of Outhouse of Death.

       It's almost certain how it would work when it gets up to speed, but give it a few weeks.
