It's World Toilet Day! And they could use some in Haiti, where families and schools have none. That's why we donate every year to Youth Haiti which teaches young people to build sanitary composting toilets and pays them to improve their communities. I hope you'll donate to the toilet charity of your choice!
"For every $1 invested in basic sanitation in urban areas, an average of $2.5 is returned in saved medical costs and increased productivity. In rural areas, an average of $5 is returned for every $1 invested." (Hutton 2015)
I never realized that so much went into the basic porcelain toilet!
I was watching one of those murder mystery shows the other day, and a woman died by drowning in the toilet. So the police brought in a Forensic Plumber, and he told the police it was impossible for that to happen. Toilets by design do not let a person drown in them because upon passing out, a person's body weigh pulls them out. And people cannot get their shoulders into them, so you can get your nose wet, and your mouth wet, but can never get your nose and mouth into the water at the same time. Basically, the lowly ole toilet is well engineered.
As for why the woman did, let's just say that her husband is now spending the rest of his life in prison.
