"Experts call for end of flushing toilets on World Toilet Day"

some facts from the article (emphasis mine):

* The average person spends three years of their life on the “john”.

shouldn't this say the "average MAN"?

* The average person flushes a toilet about 2500 times a year, while using about eight sheets of toilet paper per day.

EIGHT SHEETS? EIGHT SHEETS? not if you spend three years of your life parked there!

* An estimated 2.6 billion people worldwide do not have access to proper toilet facilities, particularly in rural areas of China and India.

soooo, they're way ahead of the rest of us in the "fertilization" process?

* Lack of suitable toilets and sanitation kills approximately 1.8 million people a year, many of them children.

as opposed to "unsuitable" toilets?

* According to Jack Sims, a further 500 million toilets are needed to bridge the gap in sanitation.

sounds like a bunch of crappe to me!

* The first flushing toilet was invented in 1596 by Sir John Harrington, a British noble and godson to Queen Elizabeth I. He only invented one, as he was ridiculed by his peers, but he still used it for himself.

stingy butt!

* Most toilets flush in the key of E flat.


* On average, a person will use 22 litres of drinkable water every day flushing a toilet.

bottled or tap?

...oh boo...
