I've had lots of stokes in the bathroom. Particularly as a teenager. Never found it that bad. A bit uncomfortable, sure.

This reminds me of a seminar I once attended that talked about water quality, and for some reason they found toilet water was often cleaner than the water from taps.

First time I saw a little bottle labeled 'toilet water' on my aunt's dresser, I was one confused kid

Of course that alone isn't so bad. That's why it would be worse to have to then spend a week drinking toilet water.

If you're going to have a stroke in a country that borders the United States and be forced to drink toilet water for a week, you'd better pray to God you're in the one with Tim Hortons.

I just can't imagine how, paralyzed on one side or not, one doesn't at least try to crawl to a phone for a whole week.  But then I've never had a stroke.

They'd find me dead halfway through the bathroom door, clearly.

Sign of someone having a stroke in the bathroom: lots of toilet paper has suddenly been used.

Define 'cleaner'. A lot of cleaning chemicals are put in toilets, there is a good chance that is has less bacteria than tap water, but there might me other stuff in there one wouldn't want to drink.

I don't understand how he had the energy to unscrew the toilet and tilt it but not to take off the lid and drink from the tank.  Whenever you're in a situation where your water is turned off you can always get uncontaminated drinking water from the toilet tank (or the hot water heater).

Truth be told, I cannot provide a definitive answer, because I was not the one giving the lecture, and it's been a few years now, so I wouldn't be doing anyone any good trying to remember the specifics of their claims, I just remember that was what the speaker claimed.

The water in your toilet is probably still cleaner than the water that 90% of the world's population drinks every day.

He removed a bolt cover and used it as a cup to dip into the bowl. He couldn't get up off the floor.

Sure, the "water coming in" might be perfectly fine. It's the condition of the interior of the bowl that I would think questionable. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not gonna fark you up were you to ingest it.
I get that In desperate times people do desperate things but it isn't always without consequence.

Ohhh...that makes more sense then.  That is a horrible way to spend a week.

That must have been a seriously massive dump to induce a god damn stroke. I've gotten light-headed before, and even had some blood vessels burst around my eye during a couple power shiats, but never came close to having a grabber.

If you drink it right after you go, yeah, that's bad.  After a flush, it's probably still cleaner than the standard drinking supply in a lot of the world.  But of course, there's always a line coming from the wall to the toilet that's a pretty much endless supply of fresh and clean water.

Splish: But of course, there's always a line coming from the wall to the toilet that's a pretty much endless supply of fresh and clean water.


That sounds good but you still have to get the line disconnected from the toilet. I just checked mine: it does have a big plastic nut you can unscrew by hand, but some don't. But yeah, that line even has a whatchamacallit that turns the water off from the wall so I wouldn't have to disturb the guy downstairs with a flood through his ceiling while I lay there dying.

Anyway. Till this thread I'd have used my cupped hand to dip water from the bowl, or something on the floor nearby; if the little bolt covers were still there it still would not occur to me. I'm not sure unscrewing the line from the toilet would have occurred to me either, so if something like this ever happens to me you'll have only yourself to blame if I don't die of thirst. That is, if I remember that: from people say having a stroke might addle my brain worse than it already is.

Most likely I'd just lay there hollering and banging on the floor till the guy downstairs came up to yell at me. He might eventually figure there might be something very wrong.

Anyway. It just occurred to me that living in an apartment building in a city might perhaps make it harder to die alone. This might be another argument against "the idiocy of rural life."

Dying.

I call BS.

Toilets tanks are often filled with sediment, corrosion, and algae.

Not drinking it. Gonna die.

I don't know about where you live but where I live all of the water comes from one central place and is distributed to my abode via one central pipe so the same water that goes to my faucets is the exact same water that goes to my toilets.
That in itself is fine and dandy and I'll drink the water from whichever tap it comes from, be it kitchen sink, bathroom sink, garden hose. I do draw the line at drinking it from the business-end of my toilet.

We all die alone, even when we're surrounded by the people we love.  No one can come on that journey with us.

So are the pipes that bring the water into your house in the first place. Well, they have sediment and corrosion at least, not so sure about the algae, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Sure - you just gotta kill em at the same time.  The death bus comes every 5-10 minutes, so as long as you die at about the same time, you can go together.
