The Irresponsible Captain: Keep it on the shelf.

I always wondered about those. I mean, nobody wants splashback when you're dropping bombs on porcelain harbor. But just open-airing it has GOT to bring the funk. Do German bathrooms have better than average ventilation?

My grandfather taught me and my younger brother to play skat (which I thought was spelled "scot" because of his accent) when we were kids. It is very mysterious, and I don't remember any of the details. But trying to learn it at a young age made other card games easier to learn, such as euchre, which is also very strange and requires card-counting. And poker, of course, which the article claims you can play after watching it for 30 minutes, but to play it well, you have to know what's going on, on the table. I was a pretty successful poker player in friendly games.

Is it played with enthusiasm, slapping cards down like Caribbean dominoes players? I think I've seen it played.

It's very hard to remember much, because it was 60 years ago. But I think my grandfather did that.

/It's very hard to find toilets with a poop shelf now in the Netherlands
//have non-Dutch friends who went out of their way to find one.
///makes for easy poop inspection or taking samples for medical purposes.

No, but they have a scrub brush for you to clean it up afterwards.

No literally, first time I travelled there for business I got the "leave the milk out and scrub the toilet" speech.

Still not as weird as the Bangkok poop paper bucket.

Okay, can see that benefit. I mitigate splashback with some TP; though Aussie toilets aren't as full of water. Surely, the shelf results in a much larger poo smudge though? Doesn't seem like much fun to clean every time.
