Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin of the University of Georgia reports no difference between pit bulls' jaws and those of other breeds (The Pit Bull Placebo).

"Look how they're splitting up," said Lehr Brisbin, a University of Georgia researcher.
The animals are Carolina dogs, developed as a breed in recent years by Brisbin, who is convinced they are North America's most primitive dogs. He says they are even linked in type, or appearance, to the oldest known dogs on earth: canines that crossed the Bering Strait land bridge with the first aboriginal inhabitants of the continent 8,000 years ago. During the past two decades, Brisbin and others have discovered the breed's founder dogs living wild in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, subsisting on handouts, scavenging in Dumpsters or hunting in the coastal plain's isolated swamps and woodlands. The Carolina dog is the first canine breed ever created from Georgia stock, Brisbin said. "I'm not the first to create a breed, though you can count on one hand the number of people who have done it," he said.
Brisbin said wild Carolina dogs are shy and standoffish.
Although good at guarding, Carolina dogs rarely bite, Brisbin said. "For centuries, any dog that bit a village child went into the stew pot. Natural selection weeded out the biters," he said. Brisbin stumbled on the wild dogs during his 31 years at the University of Georgia's Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, located on the isolated 310-square mile Savannah River Site where plutonium for nuclear weapons was processed.
"Those wastes will boil in their own heat for the next 10,000 years but there are relatively few waste storage areas," Brisbin said.
Brisbin also noticed the dogs resembled those pictured in North America cave paintings, on primitive pottery and in early European sketches of Indian villages. "About 12 years ago, it dawned on me I was catching dogs that looked, like dingoes," he said. The dingo, a wild dog of Australia and New Guinea, is linked to aboriginal inhabitants there, he said. Brisbin, who calls Carolina dogs North America's dingo, believes their type survived on large, remote tracts where human influence is minimal.
Brisbin later identified the animals as wild Carolina dogs.
"With funding, I could get DNA from the fossils and compare it to the blood of Carolina dogs," Brisbin said. The unique behaviors exhibited by some Carolina dogs helped them qualify as a separate breed, Brisbin said. The females use their noses to scrape sand over their droppings, leaving distinct flower-like patterns on the ground. They also create "snout pits," shallow holes they dig for as-yet unknown reasons, he said.
According to Brisbin, there are still unknown numbers of Carolina dogs in the wild, though he said they are rarely seen by humans. "They are designed to blend in," he said.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF POOPING | Human. Nature., 22 Feb 2011 [cached]
"I don't often use the term 'life-changing,' but Quirk is."
I have a dentist appointment so I won't research the agricultural transition. I imagine that as population densities rose so did the requests for a centralized outhouse. Then we get to cities with actual sewers to carry the stuff out of town (or at least to the waterfront), perhaps from a bucket dumped out the front door. And then came the water closet, and the victorians who didn't feel comfortable with any body part below the ear. Which kind of set the tone for what we do now with our crap.
This occurred to me yesterday as I put a toxic substance into a toilet in order to kill off bacteria living there. To review: I poisoned the planet so that my poop would have a clean place to land.
Dr. I Lehr Brisbin, Senior Ecologist at University of Georgia's Savannah River Ecology Lab, and expert on Carolina Dogs, says that a feral Carolina Dog caught from the wild buried her poops when she was in estrus or had young puppies.
