BOSTON, MA – A study published in the Journal of Excremental Studies this week reveals new secrets from a timeless tool. In 1997, the Bristol Stool Scale forever changed the way that we think about stool and, thus, life. Distilling thousands of years of observation into a simple chart which encompasses the whole range of human experience, the Bristol Stool Scale, discovered by Dr. Ken Heaton, is the crowning achievement of the University of Bristol and stands as a testament to human progress. In it’s original form, the chart made simple observations about the character and spectrum of feces, offering useful terms to help with categorization.
New advances in modern medicine, however, show that the Bristol Stool Chart is more than just a catalog of waste; it is the essence of human nature in material form. Based on rigorous scientific speculation, the Expanded Bristol Stool Chart was created to demonstrate that the inner workings of our psyche are revealed through fecal study.
Lessons learned from the Bristol Stool Chart have spawned a novel field of medicine, known as Gastrology, which attempts to predict the future based on fecal analysis. Peruse the new chart and allow its wisdom to renew your faith and interest in humanity.
