MBZ321: A bathroom is a nasty place.


None of mine at home are. We keep them clean. I never take a dump in a public restroom unless it is an emergency.

REO-Weedwagon: Jesus Christ, if it takes more than about 60-90 seconds for a bowel movement then you have serious nutritional deficiencies happening.


I wish it would only take that long. Except for a few choice occasions, I almost always take at least 10 minutes to get it all out.

rooftop235: In 2003, at the Venetian in Vegas, a guy was in the stall next to mine trying to talk to someone on the phone. I swear he said 'can you hear me now', and then 'I am in a meeting'. At that moment I flushed, along with one or two other people.
That moment was priceless.


The german "Sitzung", session, can be used as meeting or as sitting on the can.

I once said on the phone that my boss is in a "private Sitzung". The co-worker opposite almost exploded with laughter.

wildcardjack: Social networking is very specific.

I'd predict that 75% of smartphone users have fired off a round of Angry Birds while on the can.


That seems like a reasonable percentage. In my experiment, 100% of people played Angry Birds on the toilet this morning. Admittedly, my sample size was 1: Me... But numbers don't lie.

I have no problems using my smartphone while taking the Browns to the Super Bowl. I won't take any calls, though. It just doesn't seem right.

Cold_Sassy: I could never understand why people would prefer to sit on a toilet for some length of time, when there is a sofa (or at least a more comfortable chair) within a less than 60 second destination. Seriously, what is the deal?

back when i was a overworked drone in the system multitasking my way through a high pressure day often the only time i had to relax for a few seconds was during a visit to the Men's. sure as shiat, taken away from a non-stop stream of head smashing pressure I would often have incredible epiphanies and massive juicy rationalizations during my brief seconds of clarity. this phenomena is not only worthy of a thesis, it should be studied by scientists and psychiatrists. there is untapped potential in toilet time. mark my words, when the day comes that someone realizes the meaning of life, they will be sitting on a stinky throne with toilet paper clenched in one hand. simply stated, we've messed ourselves up quite greatly by pretending to be civilized and socialized. potty time is one of the few primal pleasures still left to mankind, and even then we've mucked it up with hygienically necessary bathrooms. books will be written on this, you'll see. you read it here first, kids.

There's wisdom in the that old adage, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." One of life's great joys is being on a regular defecation schedule. Seriously, when you're taking a good regular sh*t at the same time everyday, you're living the high life, my friend. You're strolling downtown.

Sometimes you just want a nice relaxing dump. No need to rush.

And sometimes the best place to get away is the bathroom (people tend not to interrupt you much and the noise level is usually lower). I make full use of this at family gatherings.

Obviously you don't linger in a disgusting hole of a bathroom, but a nicely maintained one is perfectly fine.

Actually, not all XKCD strips are supposed to be funny. Some are simple observations regarding life, other very personal in nature. Even some of the humor isn't intended to be gotten by every single person reading the strip--unless you happen to be part of the Scientific American segment of the audience (people who read and understand all the articles in Scientific American the way normal people read and understand Time magazine) or you are one of the fictional members of the cast of "Big Bang Theory" not named 'Penny'. I personally admit to having to Google a couple of scientific expressions used in the strip and found myself learning something...perhaps the author's intent all along.

Whatever the case, it ain't Garfield. Thank goodness.

Wouldn't it be a given that the only way to text/tweet/Facebook from the bathroom would have to involve a smart phone and/or tablet? Unless they are considering yelling at the person in the next stall or setting up a complete computer system (or laptop- but then again, that could be used like a tablet), how else would you be able to update your social network? That being said I think that the 32% being part of the total population or the "people who have smart phones & etc" are the same group. I am just not seeing another method of Facebooking.

I knew an old guy who ended up in the hospital because he hadn't pooped in like, ten days. My friend and I were baffled. How could such a thing happen? How can you poop your whole life and then suddenly not be able to poop? he wasn't a big fat man either.

We poop because of regular progressive contractions of the bowel call peristalsis. This keeps first food, then waste moving from the stomach through the digestive tract as nutrients are absorbed. Fully digested food (aka feces) collects in the lower colon. When enough collects, stretch receptors there send a signal to the brain to evacuate the colon (aka take a dump). Peristalsis ceases while we sleep (which is why you don't fart when you are in a deep sleep). Aging can slow peristalsis significantly and decrease the strength of the contractions. Certain drugs, anesthetics and surgical procedures can temporarily halt the process. When this happens it is possible for the colon to become impacted with feces and blocked.

I don't understand rushing when you don't need to. I take my time. If I rush, it feels like I still need to kind of poop and I feel uncomfortable. Even if it all comes out immediately, taking time to decompress after is a way better pooping experience. Plus, this is the only time where you are completely alone more or less and can play on your phone no matter the occasion.

Carn: vice_magnet: I'm actually doing this right now from Stall 1 of 3. Quick question: this is the first time in three weeks of visiting this stall that a co-worker has NOT already occupied the middle stall in an otherwise empty bathroom. Is this a breach of social norms and etiquette?

No. The every other rule only applies to urinals. Unless one of you starts trying to play footsie under the stall wall, then there might be a problem.


But but but I have a wide stance!

I for one avoid close proximity to other men when taking off my pants, even in crowded airport restrooms. Heck even Mrs. Magnet won't poop with me in the same bathroom.

I'm not saying you can't grab the farthest stall if you want some privacy, but keep your feet in your own stall! And, there are no negative guy points for taking a stall next to another guy in a three stall arrangement. However, if there are more than three stalls, I think guy rule comes back in to play, unless the one you are going for is the best aka the handicap throne. Then, all bets are off.

Actually, I read about it many years ago in an article re: workplace psychology. Gist: many office types saw the bathrooms as a place of quiet solace and the ONE place in their work day where they could have some thoughts/time to themselves and not be harassed.
