    Happy Birthday Thomas Crapper

    Saved more lives than Louis Pasteur, and made tall buildings practicable.
    He would be 177 today.

    The word, crap, did not originate with Thomas, by the way. It dates all the way back to Middle English, and has always meant basically the same thing: refuse, junk, ****, waste, crap.
