We'll look into experiments later when the weather is warmer -but for now, this is how the toilets are used.
Because, infact, your flush toilet is really nasty....you just think it's normal (just like the parts of Mexico which have bad plumbing and cannot throw the toilet paper in the toilet ).
How is your flush toilet nasty you ask???
If you only knew!!!
....well, okay, I'll tell you, just don't be mad cause every time you use that nasty thing, you'll remember this and get a little queasy.
Have you ever noticed when you take a dump in your toilet how bad that smells??? aaaaahhhh, that's the part that's nasty.
Because the reason you're smelling anything is because little particles of that item is inside your nose, brought there by the air you breathe.
That means when someone makes a stinky doo doo in your porcelain throne, you smell it cause you have their shit up your nose! Yep. Like that. feeling superior now???
okay then, do you smell pee when you pee in your nice porcelain throne??? Yep. Same thing. Pee in your nose.
Now you know you want your toilet to be negative pressure so the air from your butt (and everyone who uses your toilet) never gets near your nose!
Aaahhhh, but guess what? you aint' gonna get a nice porcelain throne with negative pressure!
So whatcha gonna do with all that poo, all that doo in your nose???
Build a good willow bank like ours, silly!
Anyways, tomorrow I'll talk about food at Wheaton Labs.
