The science of horizontal bird shit

By M Davies   /     May 27, 2006  /     The Pre-Dooce File, The WTF File  /  

When you climb the steps to get to our second floor, there is a small crank window at the top of the steps.  The crank window opens on an outward angle.  The first 3 days this week (Sun-Tues), it was really cold so I had pretty much all of the windows in the house closed (including the crank window).  I woke up on Wednesday morning and there was bird shit on the crank window.

I am not talking the white kind, I'm talking diahrea type bird shit in about 4 different areas on the window.  The window was closed the previous night, so I'm really puzzled as to how the bird shat on it.  The only 2 viable solutions I could have come up with was that the bird was sitting on the roof, and pooped and then when it fell, the wind blew it onto my window. Crystal also had a theory that the bird maybe have been flying toward the house at an upward angle and shat in mid air and the wind blew it onto the window. Either way, I have no idea how I'm going to get this bird shit off of my window.  It is an angled window, so I can't clean it from the inside.  I could splurge for the windex that you can hook up to your hose, but I'm not totally sure that its going to reach because the window is on the 3rd floor. 

Anyone have any creative ideas how to clean my window?  I am all ears.
