cool blog -

The standard spelling of feces is, well, feces, though British people sometimes do that funny thing with the extra a to make it faeces.

In zoology, a cloaca is an excretory opening for both urine and feces, and also serves as the genital opening for many species.

thanks for the correction. Unfortunately I cannot change the post title as it appears in the records but I can correct it as it appears on the page.
Thank you for the definition of cloaca as well. I certainly hope that Mr Delvoye's machine does not have genitalia function though.
