Would it be awkward to walk up to someone giving carriage tours of the city and be like "how much for a bag of your horse's shit".
Like obviously I'm not asking mounted police I'm not that stupid but would it be a bad idea to ask a cabbie for some poo? I wouldn't be like "I'M TOO CHEAP TO ORDER FERTILIZER" obviously.

You can ask mounted police. Instead of asking how much up front, just ask if they want to give it to you first, then negotiate from there. Also make sure to tell them you're a botanist and that you don't have a scat fetish.

Also, your own poo will convert to finished compost after a few months I think.

Offer to muck a person's animal stalls or facilities in exchange for all or some of the fertilizer.

Just make your own compost with food scraps. Youtube it.

Ever heard of horizontal gene transfer?
In a nutshell microorganisms that live in our gut end up in our excrement. Those microorganisms can then transfer or receive genetic material via sex pillars to and from organisms that would be harmful for us just that they can't survive in our bodies. That in turn would create pretty dangerous stuff. And you want to grow stuff you consume on this?
It's the same magnitude of stupid that probably lead to the covid-19 outbreak.

A hot compost pasteurizes the contents, human manure is not more dangerous than the excrement of other mammals which are normally used.

It does to some extent but you can't rely on that for safety you want to sterilize all of it not just the patches where the conditions are just right.
The only way to do it safely is to sterile it first before composting which defeats the purpose of being for free.
It may even work in 99.9% of cases the thing is it takes only 0.1% to create something really harmful.

>human manure is not more dangerous than the excrement of other mammals which are normally used.
Read my post again. The microorganisms in our poop are specifically evolved to live in human beings. Poop of other mammals can be evolved to infect us to but nearly not as much.
Also that's the reason why we usually only compost excrement of mammal livestock that are genetically distant enough, like horses & cows, not pigs.

Stop defending being a retard.

Human manure has been used for millenia and is still used today, you've probably eaten produce grown on human fertilizer. The largest danger from manure are salmonella, e-coli etc. they will be killed in the composting process, if you want to be extra sure you can let it age longer so beneficial soil microbes can outcompete disease causing ones. As you pointed out these microbes evolved inside gi-tracts and are not suited for live in the soil.

Nope, it's illegal everywhere except in fucking North Korea.

Stop calling it "human manure" and stop defending retarded shit.

No it's not. You're ignorant bro. I bet you eat food grown with human fertilizer all the time.

In a sense, chemicals useful for agriculture are extracted from sewage processing sludge. The end product is completely sterile.
If you want an organic free phosphorous source for compositing use cow manure.

stop thinking humans are somehow seperate from nature and have qualitatively different poop. The risks are the same compared to other forms of manure.

depends on your definition of nature, either way it's irrelevant.
>and have qualitatively different poop.
We do, as has any other animal. Every species has their own "qualitatively different poop".

>The risks are the same compared to other forms of manure.
Nope, there's a difference if environment contains excrement of different species or the same species for a given species inhabiting this environment.
Our poop contains the genetic information on how microorganisms can survive inside us. Other organisms can "get access" to this information.
Consider it a biological infosec problem. If I get your dox it is a risk to you, not so if I get some third party's dox.

So you are ignorant. All you had to do was say so man. Composting toilets have been a thing since the 70s.

Don't just put fresh manure on your plants, human or not. It needs to be hot composted for months like the guy said.

Then it needs to be heavily diluted/mixed into your soil or it'll "burn" the roots.

In my experience, you can use it as a planting medium once properly composted, to properly compost it you have to 'dilute' it with enough carbon though.

Compost just needs time to cook. You can add extra organic matter like food scraps and stuff. the important thing is to cover with a medium like shredded paper to keep flies and other undesirables out.

You dont need to ask
look for ads in your area for people wanting to get rid of it
horses shit nonstop so they give it away for free if you come and get it

So? Bacteria learn from our poop how to become more well behaved to the point where they can survive in the gut for years without causing enough harm to provoke an immune response? That sounds awesome. It's like housebreaking but for microbes
