Looks pretty but, with the wind coming from the right direction you could smell it all over camp.

Sometimes you could almost taste it... Horrible

Just looking at it and I can still taste it!

I will never forget the smell, especially around 1800h when the wind turned. After the DEFAC what an aroma after supper.

Being picky now; this aint the shitpit, it is the pond beside the Jingly Market.... If it was the shitpit, you would see biohazard signs on the edge. I wonder if the rumour of the GI swimming in it for $50 is true ?????

Even though it does look like a nice piece of nature, this IS the shitpit. The biohazard signs are more to the left. I took the picture with the wind coming from behind me, otherwise it could have become pretty dangerous...

In April of 2007 the Dutch would pay 1000.00 and a bottle of Scotch to see it happen.

I remember they made people run around the poo pond during the 10K Run and people were getting sick and vomiting because of the smell.

Good planning.

The comments here are hilarious - and without knowing what it was, I thought it was a nice shot. : b
