You can grind up and dissolve all the solids you want, but when you burn the liquid off, you still have the solids somewhere. It's like washing your windows with hard water in the sun and not dryng it. Try it.

I remember when locomotives had incinerator toilets back in the 60's and 70's . . . we called them "turd burners" . . . they were NASTY!

The slang term for "crapper" originated from the American servicemen stationed in England during World War I where they saw his name on cisterns and used it as army slang, "I'm going to the crapper."

Maybe that's why the toilet is also referred to as the "john".
LOL! This thread has been fun and informative. I think you are probably right - always wondered where the "John" came from, and that is probably the origin not only of "crapper" , but probably the term "crap" itself!
