Which Victorian prognosticator was it, who, observing the build up in London's traffic, stated that, if things carried on as they were, by the middle of the 20th century London would be knee-deep in ****?

If it was deliberate I think they could have mustered a bit more than that. I see that sort of quantity fall off trailers all the time, especially when maneuvering. Nobody could notice that amount falling out of a tractor trailer, remember that they often tow several tons of the stuff.
