I guess this accounts for the unusually high volume of rat cr*p we found under
the floor of the old telecine "submarine" at Editel, when we finally performed
a mercy killing of that "ageing facility" in true Kervorkian fashion.
If I'd seen tidal waves of 1,1,1 trich. bearing down on me in that confined space,
I would have sh*t myself too.
