No problem....

We just made sure the thread had both a belt AND a set of suspenders for support.

No termination cap, just a down pipe? As RVers we all know DOT rules require one. It seems like this would be a violation at annual inspection time for a commercial bus. I'm not implying it didn't happen with the Greyhound though. Perhaps 20 years ago I read an article in a newspaper where this woman found a softball sized chunk of "blue ice" in her back-yard in winter-time. She put the chunk in her freezer and phoned the local university for identification. The responders quickly decided she found a rare chunk of airplane dump tank contents. They were never supposed to make it to earth from 30K feet.

Coming out of a bus is a new one for me.. but I sure don't doubt it ... not one bit

As for AIRPLANES... YES !!

They have had accidents while flying that allowed frozen blocks of raw sewage to be dumped from plane..

This type of accident has happened several times in my lifetime that I remember.

It was all over the national and local television news as well as many local and national newspapers across America.

That frozen sewage landed on houses causing major damage twice that I remember..

I can't remember where the others landed or how much damage was done..

Imagine sitting in front of television in your living room and a 50 pound block of frozen sewage crashes through your ceiling and lands only a few feet from you..

Bet that'll get yer attention !! huh ?

They should have a manual cap of some sort and a unpowered switch with the ignition turned on.
