From my house, poo takes 2 hours to reach the sea after a 19-mile
trip along a route I'd never have guessed (into a completely
different watershed).

This seems to me to have potential for gambling on poo races - you'd
need to allocate the starting points somewhat randomly, but it isn't
at all obvious whether poo starting in Middlesbrough would beat poo
from Norwich: you could have a wait of some hours before the result
was obvious.

Why not drive to the sea in 15 or 20 minutes, and deliver it directly?

Did they calibrate the algorithm using GPS-enabled turds?
