    You misread this:

    No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house...
    What the founders meant was that no soldiers could be sliced into four roughly equal parts in your house. Which makes sense: that has to be really messy.

      it was kosher for him or her (or at least 1/4 of him or her) to be stored in my basement?

      Since presumably he or she (or at least 1/4 of he or she) would have already been nicely and sanitarily wrapped in saran wrap, aluminum foil (or even tinfoil) as the case may be and not have been objectionably messy?

      OK, that all makes good sense.  But points out another flaw in my Kansas education - they never taught me * any * of that.
