So what do you do when you’ve flushed — but the toilet’s not? Or when you just wanted to help clear the table but accidentally put something bad down the drain? To bail you out of these awkward situations, we consulted the experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing for some professional plumbing tips. Their insight might just help you prevent a plumbing catastrophe before it begins! Ever notice that plumbing issues like clogged toilets or backed-up garbage disposals always seem to happen around the holidays? That’s because your bathrooms and kitchens are working extra hard to keep up with all the company you invited over. Extra food and guests in the home often means extra use of plumbing systems, which translates into a heightened number of service calls for technicians to deal with the ugly aftermath of Thanksgiving feasts ,” said Doyle James, president of Mr. Rooter Plumbing, a Neighborly Company.
When it comes to being in a long-term relationship, there are quite a few ways to bond with your partner , as well as several boundaries you should never cross. And, when you think about it, a lot of them occur at home — especially when it comes to sharing intimate spaces, like the bathroom. From brushing your teeth together, to being more open about your bathroom habits, that tiled room can serve as the perfect place to talk about boundaries, while also providing a space to feel more comfortable around each other.
Hana Michels, who is based in the US, tweeted out a funny bathroom selfie she used on a dating app. She did so to reveal that after seeing the.
Although I have been on the receiving end of her anger many times, we manage to maintain our relationship. She lives across the country now and, unfortunately, suffers from a major debilitating illness. She lives with a man she argues with often, in his small apartment. They struggle financially, and she recently confided that when they argue, she dunks his toothbrush in the toilet to get even.
Obviously, it is without his knowledge. I have never met him, but he is very nice to me when I call. I want to tell him what my friend has been doing. I feel he needs to know the health risks he’s facing when he brushes his teeth. Of course, if I do, I know I’ll incur her wrath once again as she’ll know I ratted her out. And he will undoubtedly evict her from the apartment. She doesn’t have the finances to get her own place, and the eviction may result in her becoming homeless.
I’m struggling with which is worse: his health risk or her homelessness. So far, I have kept my mouth shut, but each day I know he is brushing his teeth with bacteria. Should I continue to remain silent?
What’s UN World Toilet Day?
World Toilet Organization was founded on 19 November and the inaugural World Toilet Summit was held on the same day, the first global summit of its kind. We recognised the need for an international day to draw global attention to the sanitation crisis — and so we established World Toilet Day on 19 November. World Toilet Day has continued to garner support over the years, with NGOs, the private sector, civil society organisations and the international community joined in to mark the global day.
A world body on toilets — are you kidding me?
Meet someone today!
I had been dating Andrew for 33 days and had been constipated for four. I looked three months pregnant , had spent the last two days at his apartment, and was sitting on his toilet, giving it one final push. And all of that— all of it—had yet to leave my bowels. As far as doing my business goes, I am generally pretty regular. I love routine and therefore have my mornings down to a science: I make coffee at home , go to yoga, get to work, have a breakfast of oatmeal or yogurt, and about half an hour later, have a bowel movement.
A few highly specific things throw me off, and I can name them all on one hand: lack of a morning coffee ; travel by plane; inexplicably, eating a bagel on a weekday; and men. When Andrew and I started dating, I felt the constipation looming. I tried everything to get myself to maintain a regular bathroom schedule. I took fiber supplements , drank green juice , and guzzled coffee to no avail.
I asked if he would buy a Squatty Potty, which has previously proven to be life-changing for me , as I have short legs and he has a high toilet. Once in an act of pure desperation I dragged a residual box from his coat closet to the toilet, attempting to turn it into a makeshift crouching device. I sat and focused hard for 10 or 15 minutes with the tap running to mask out any errant sound effects , and nothing happened.
Hurry up and poo at your boyfriend’s house
Ideas if you’re looking to shake up the usual bar venue for meeting guys: bookstores, dog parks One creative London-based company is arranging a singles night that will haunt my nightmares worse than the time I went speed dating and a guy really creepily handed me a Hershey’s Kiss as a weird, sexually charged greeting. Like, you know, that romantic thing where you lock eyes across a germ-infested bathroom stall while smelling the faint stench of hundreds of people’s past excremental functions.
OK, to be fair, I actually think this isn’t maybe the worst idea ever.
There’s no longer that weird pressure to do so to impress someone. getting ready to go in the shower together, just sit on the toilet and go.
Men’s usage is markedly larger than women, with many utilising apps in the midst of work meetings, at weddings, or in the gym. In an attempt to address these mindless browsing habits, Once was created: The act of swiping and scrolling is fast and this does not provide for considered decisions. By reducing the number of matches to one a day, users of Once avoid wasting hours scrolling.
Instead, they can choose to engage with their match or simply wait for tomorrow to see a new one. As well as saving time, it’s believed the app will be better for users’ self esteem — traditional apps can leave you rejected up to 50 times a day if the person you swiped ‘yes’ to didn’t chose to match with you back. As I like to say: Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.

Why do some men take so long to poop?
Nothing makes you realize how much you love your boyfriend or girlfriend than when their gross morning breath somehow isn’t that gross, or when weight gain in particularly unattractive places doesn’t make you cringe. Eventually, the stuff we worked so hard to keep hidden comes out — literally. The beauty of a comfortable relationship is that you only need to shave if you want to. There’s no longer that weird pressure to do so to impress someone.

Pooping and farting are loud, messy, smelly activities The guidelines are informed by personal experience from two people who, FWIW, abide by two extremely different Butthole Bills of Rights in our respective relationships and the Golden Rule: You do you You can try if that makes you feel best! Well, the first time it happens, it will probably be an accident. Which is actually perfect! How someone treats a person they care about when that person feels embarrassed is a good gauge for what kind of partner they are.
Swiping, small talk, splitting bills, and generally trying to navigate love or maybe lust — while obvs playing it totally cool — can be a complete minefield. How and when do you get up and go? And is there a polite way of doing it, or is it best to bolt and apologise later?

The picture of a fly in the urinals at Schiphol Airport has been touted as a simple, inexpensive way to reduce cleaning costs. Where does it come from, and how effective is it really? At first glance, one might be forgiven for thinking it real. Then one notices that all the urinals have one, and the fly is always in the same position, just above the urinal drain and off to the left.
It turns out that men, in their urinal behaviour, cannot resist peeing on things, especially if they look as though they might wash away. As any mother—or for that matter long-suffering wife—will tell you, men often lack a certain precision when aiming into the toilet bowl. This is bad enough at home, but in public conveniences such male carelessness can be multiplied many times over.
There have been splashback screens that let urine in but not out, rubber floor mats, curiously shaped urinals in which the stream ricochets off concave walls into rather than out of the urinal, and ribbed urinals. The urinal fly was introduced to Schiphol in the early s, suggested by Jos van Bedaf , manager of the cleaning department. But, according to Klaus Reichardt , who invented the waterless urinal and now runs a company that sells this technology, nothing works as effectively as getting men to aim in the right place.

Guys, We Need To Talk About Pooping & Farting In Romantic Relationships
Finding love, connection, a spark at the best times is rough. Finding it during a pandemic has its own challenges. I went on a run the other day.
And honestly, I am kind of curious now as to what makes a toilet among the most interesting bathrooms of a city. So I guess what I’m saying is.
Everybody poos, and that does not stop people from being attractive. Because if it did, not a single one of us would be getting laid. Just look at that story of the woman who got stuck upside down in a window to understand just how far women feel they need to go to hide evidence that they poo. It would kill the romance. Which begs the question — why does admitting you poo, meaning just admitting that you have a human body, ruin the idea of romance?
That would disrupt our allure. We know this is absolutely ridiculous, and yet even as confident, feminist women, loads of us are still holding on to the idea that pooping while in the same building as someone we want to have sex with is deeply wrong. Do a poo.
