    Senator Bernie Sanders likes his hotel rooms cold and does not like slow flushing toilets, according to a leaked tour rider from his 2020 presidential campaign.

    For residents and storekeepers on one Neptune Avenue block between Ocean Parkway and Brighton 3rd Street, being close to Lincoln High School has been an unrelenting disaster.

    My order at my favorite Chinese takeout was taking too long. I stopped into the men's room. There I witnessed a common scene: the modern toilet disaster. An otherwise clean business had a restroom calamity on its hands, one so grim that I hesitate to describe it. The conjectural history is not difficult to reconstruct. The toilet apparently had trouble flushing. There was a plunger by the toilet, of course, as we see everywhere today. The toilet was plunged to get rid of the obstruction, while the obstruction itself spilled all over the floor and stuck to the plunger too....

    Full title of article: "A $350 toilet powered by worms may be the ingenious future of sanitation that Bill Gates has been dreaming about" Excerpt: Worm toilets require no traditional flushing and aren't hooked up to a sewer system — instead, worms compost human waste. More than 4,000 such "Tiger Toilets" have been installed to date across India, in homes of people who were previously defecating in the open. The worm toilets smell a lot better than a pit latrine, and don't breed mosquitoes either. Here's how a $350 toilet powered by worms could change the world and save lives.

    So I was at work today and a customer said he found pictures of Trump for sale. I said that I didn't know we had those available (clueless). He said, "Yeah, they were in the BATHROOM surrounded by a horseshoe frame." I said, "So, you are not a fan." He said that he wasn't a fan and that he had "the guy in the back" cracking up about his hilarious description of how his rump was exposed to Trump. I said, "Well, I guess no one loves everyone all of the time." What I wanted to say was, "Hey, you...

    How many plumbers does it take to fix an airplane toilet? It’s a joke with no punch line, as 85 plumbers on a Norwegian flight headed for Germany discovered Saturday when their plane had to return to Oslo because of a broken toilet, reported The Independent. The flight, which departed Oslo bound for Munich, turned back at the Swedish border. “We would have liked to fix the restrooms, but unfortunately it had to be done from the outside and we did not take the opportunity to send a plumber (out) at 10,000 meters,” Frank Olsen, a plumbing company CEO aboard...

    The Guggenheim Museum has reportedly turned down a White House request to borrow a Van Gogh painting, and has instead offered the Trump administration the use of a golden toilet. The White House had asked the Guggenheim, based in New York, to borrow Landscape With Snow, Van Gogh’s 1888 work depicting a man and a dog walking through a field. But the Guggenheim’s chief curator, Nancy Spector, turned down the request, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. Instead she said the White House could loan an 18-carat toilet – an installation by artist Maurizio Cattelan. The fully functioning toilet, titled...
