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?


Spouse and kids are less likely to interrupt your prime reading/phone time if you are behind a door and 'busy'

cryinoutloud: snocone: In my career, I have cared for hundreds of nursing home patients and they ALL agree with you.
As a young stud, I had no concept, just smile and nod to the old fart. Now it is ME and I GET IT.

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.

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


ProTip: When some men are taking a while in the bathroom, they are really doing a number 3.

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.

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.

I don't multitask in the bathroom. I'm there to take a dump. That's it.
