    I will posit that "a turd" can not be polished. Poop can be compressed, dehyrated, and then polished. A turd, as found, is unpolishable. The axiom holds true.
    That knife looks fantastic, by the way. :-)

    Coprolite qualifies as a stone.

    Dont want to threadjack here....but this is demonstrably counterfactual...check out the mythbusters episode.

    I saw that episode. They polished compressed, dehydrated poop, not "turds".

    Certain African tribes have been using compressed, dried, and polished poop for flooring for centuries. It's not new.
