    He encouraged you to do you (aside from the part where you made up nonsense, that is).

You do what you want.
    Most shelters have privies nowadays.

    Using a shelter can have it's own perils.

    Leptospirosis, a blood infection germ spread by rodents via urine (fresh or dried), which can be transmitted to humans through the skin, mouth/nose breathing, or direct ingestion via fingers or preparing food on surfaces with rodent urine present. This can cause flu like symptoms but usually fades away in about 7 - 10 days. Since symptoms are vague and clear up in a week or so, it likely is unreported in the majority of cases. However, a severe form of Leptospirosis can fade away but roar back as Weil's Disease that often requires hospitalization.

    Sweeping the shelter releases this germ into the atmosphere where it becomes easy for it to enter the body in several ways. It's a dangerous world out there.....

    It's a bad world period. Ahhh maybe you'd best stay home and be safe from mice, turds and the danger.

    Closed the thread. It is turning into a big argument to say it mildly.
