Nah, that's not as fun.

Did you ever see/read "A Scanner Darkly"? You must surveil yourself, the paperer is you.

That movie was overrated. Waking Life was awesome.

Anyway, the message is still there like nine hours later. I wonder if it will stay overnight and be cleaned by the people who go in there at 6. All I know is I am going to get my hair cut at 5:30 and it is going to come out crooked as a neckpoint on a vintage A&S because I am shaking so badly on this.

It wasn't entertaining enough to justify a daily regimen

Judging by that weak-ass folding job, you're just not psycho enough for this gig.

It would clearly tell him if it had been used in his absence - when the door is opened it will fall to the floor, most people probably do not pick it up from the floor, and certainly wouldn't replace it. How this benefits him, beyond some kind of fetish, I am not sure. Perhaps he only likes to use toilets he knows no one else has used and 'primes' several around the building every morning to guarantee he has a supply of un-violated cubicles for his use. Of course this presumes they are cleaned every night, or at least that there are enough cubicles to plausably get him through between cleanings. In old spy novels the protagonist would often stick a single hair, using a bit of saliva, between the door and door frame of their hotel room when they go out for a bit of espionage. If the hair has fallen they would know if someone had been in their room. Perhaps he is a rather clumsy John Le Carre fan.

Bathroom habits - one of the many reasons why I do not miss corporate America.

No it's not OK if you don't flush, blow your nose directly into the sink, and clip your toe nails at work leaving them on the floor for the janitor to sweep up.

I don't even understand how or why you would do that. Is there any advantage at all to putting paper there? When you open the door, it will fall down, right? And the paper can only be put in from outside...

Doesn't make sense though. pB said the same stall is re-done later in the same day. As you can see in one of his pics, there are 3 wads of paper in the same stall, from the same day. The stall has been used by others and the Wadsmith doesn't care.
