post-poc seed: the midden pool

The Midden Pool: a communal pile of e-waste

orig: outdoor municipal swimming pool

now: pit for non-organic, repurpose-able refuse

odd: a fungus consumes all bio-matter virtually overnight

This pit was once a blue-tiled municipal swimming pool, complete with depth markers and shallow/deep ends. These days, it’s used as a community scrap heap for tinkerers — if some piece of gear or rubble may have use to someone savvy, it gets dumped here, free for the taking. Only synthetic materials survive in the pit, though; some tiny fungus rapidly consumes all bio-matter. The fungus appears to be confined to the Midden. Might be a good spot to ‘store’ a body…
