Strange problem here. No matter how clean my toilet bowl is, poop sticks right to it. My friends have confirmed that it’s a problem for them as well but only when they use my toilet. I don’t have this problem using any other toilet.
Im tired of having to use toilet paper to smear the poop off the bowl every damn time I poop. Its absolutely disgusting.
How in gods name do I make my bowl more slippery?
Edit: It’s a brand new toilet and has been thoroughly cleaned. There’s no reason for the finish not to be intact.
My husband’s brother (my BIL) and his two kids (13/m and 8/m) were staying with us for christmas. They’ve had a rough year because his wife died in March. The kids are a handful because of it, but I’ve been trying to be gracious. Yesterday was my last straw, and I need a gut check for if I overreacted.
I got home from work yesterday and discovered the ground floor toilet is cracked and leaking water. It’s a mess and after shutting off the water, I ran upstairs to get extra towels and discover the upstairs toilet is cracked and leaking too. At this point I’m pissed. I go to the basement and, yup, the basement toilet is even worse.
I ran into the kids on my way up with extra towels and asked wtf they did to the toilets. The oldest said “maybe it was the boiling water bandits.” I said that makes no sense and we get into an argument. BIL came along to ask what was wrong. He was taking a nap. The kids start saying the boiling water bandits did it. As we’re arguing, it comes out the kids were trying to do a prank because of home alone. They dumped boiling water in all the toilets and tried to blame it on burglars who go around breaking toilets.
At this point I’m saying that’s ridiculous and they’re old enough to know the difference between a stupid movie and real life. BIL gets upset at this because the kids have imprinted on home alone because it’s about a mother and her kid being reunited at Christmas. At this point, both kids start crying about missing their mom.
I told them they need to leave because I need to fix my house. BIL says “you’re throwing us out?” I explain there’s no functioning toilets in the house and if anything they threw me out of my own home because I’m going to have to stay in a hotel.
Husband is not speaking with me because the kids’ feelings are upset. He’s staying with BIL and I’m at a hotel alone while trying to find a plumber who can fix all of this. AITA
Hey everyone. Everyone's got their eyes on meme stocks, but I have been working on this long thesis for a while and I wanted to share it as this company's earnings are on Feb 4. With that being said:
Tl;dr: Propane demand is at a multi-year high due to outdoor dining and hoarding. Suburban Propane Partners ($SPH) represents a massive opportunity as the stock price has stayed flat among the rapid hike in demand. This is a sleepy company and Wall Street has overlooked these developments. The company reports earnings on Feb 4 before market open. I believe call options represent the best risk/reward for this overlooked stock.
Disclosure: I am bullish on SPH and hold a large position in call options. This trade thesis is for entertainment purposes only! I am not an investment advisor. Please do your own research and seek professional investment advice for your portfolio. None of the following statements should be interpreted as financial advice or investment recommendations.
In August of 2020, I released a document outlining a propane consumption trend, following the outbreak of COVID-19 in the U.S as well as the record natural disasters in 2020. I highlighted Suburban Propane Partners as the most effective trade in the space. I bought call options and sold several months later for 16x my original investment, moving on to new trading opportunities.
Last time I released research on this trade, a lot of people requested more detailed information on what specific trades I made. I hold no shares, however, I've included the six options contracts that I am purchasing. I am playing the February and May earnings reports. Please do not follow my trades. Again, do your own research. I am not a financial advisor and this is not financial advice!

This stock has a low float and low daily volumes which influenced my decision to play this with calls.
Due to COVID, outdoor dining has caused an explosive demand for propane patio heaters and fire pits, which are still backordered with many retailers for the next month and have been extremely difficult to get since September. This has created a panic in the propane market and has many businesses and home owners desperately attempting to buy and store as much propane as they can. After e... keep reading on reddit ➡
Thick toilet paper rips way too easily and proves to be less accurate. Thin toilet paper allows you to easily get everything clean effectively and precisely. Charmin is shit because it’s way too thick and tears so easily, often getting stuck. Any toilet paper thinner than, say, a piece of paper is ideal, maybe 1-2 ply. I want my ass to be clean and free of pieces of toilet paper, so I much prefer thinner, coarser toilet paper.
I mean I'm sorry (actually, no I'm not), but it just makes absolutely zero sense to me. The amount of times that I've been lectured by family members or friends about this because one of the women fell in or almost fell in the toilet is absurd. If a woman falls into the toilet because I did not put the seat down, it is absolutely not my fault, she's just an idiot. Why am I expected to put the toilet seat down for women as if it such a burden for them put it down themselves? Anytime I have to go take a piss after a woman uses the bathroom, I have to put the seat up myself, so why should I be expected to put it down for them?
And I know that people are going to say things like "it's just the polite thing to do" or "what is so hard about putting the toilet seat down?" If you give me the bullshit argument that it's not a hard thing to do, then I would throw the same exact argument back at you, why is it so hard for women to put the seat down themselves? I also know that some people like to argue that it's the polite thing to do, just like opening or holding the door for someone is the polite thing to do. I totally agree that opening or holding the door for someone is the polite thing to do, however, it is not comparable to men putting the toilet seat down for women. Why? Because when I am opening or holding the door for someone, it's benefitting us both as we are both going to be entering or exiting from the door at the same time. However, I'm not using the bathroom at the same time as a woman, when I use the bathroom it's obviously alone and on my own time and I'm going to do what is beneficial for me which is putting the toilet seat up when I have to piss, and women should be expected to do what is beneficial for them when they are taking care of their business in the bathroom, which would be putting the toilet seat down for themselves.
Edit: this got me thinking that if I ever get a place to live with a woman and they don’t agree with me on this (which they probably won’t because it’s clearly unpopular), I will strongly consider implementing a urinal into my home bathroom.
We’ve all been there, you’re taking a you know what and you realize you’re out of tp. What do you do when times get tough?
Last year I fell ill and doctors advised me to walk every day for my recovery. Long walks are not possible, because then I have to pee! Because of The Virus, all cafes, coffeehops and restaurants are now closed, so peeing outdoors as a woman in Amsterdam is almost impossible. When asked around among friends, it turned out that actually every woman in Amsterdam experiences the same problem, so some of them advised me to start a petition.
I also wrote a letter to the mayor, not sure if I can post it here, but a copy is on my blog.
Would you please be so kind to sign my petition for MORE PUBLIC TOILETS FOR WOMEN AND OTHERS IN AMSTERDAM?
