    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Ok, so I came to a harsh realization. Below is a picture of this thing:

    Note the verbiage:

    It is kind of a trick GMAT question really. Since you have to load the roll on the right first you can conclude that the roll on the left that constantly gets replaced is not being rotated. For good measure I decided to go through with the plan though, but it proved very difficult. This thing doesn't actually come apart at all, it is designed to be sealed so I guess it is shielded from splatter and such. Everything has to be done from the bottom access. To make this more convenient for the custodian it slides off the wall very easily so you can flip it like so.

    I had to pull out the one roll in order to slide the divider over to access the larger roll to mark it.
    [​IMG]
    The larger roll is so damn tight in there I couldn't pull it out, another reason to believe this roll is there to stay forever. You can see where I stuck the sharpie in there and made a mark. Yes, that is blood where I cut myself from trying to yank the fucker out.

    The other side marked for good measure:
    [​IMG]
    You can clearly see one of the marks through the translucent plastic.

    And to cap the old times...

    Bite my fingernails would be an understatement.

    Listen. I'm being honest here. pB, if you had a Travel Channel show where you toured the world's bathrooms, I'd watch it.

    I would actually love to do that. I am sure it would be fairly interesting. Too bad, I'm not.

    Why would you want to do that? You'd probably end up getting raped in a Cape Town port-a-potty or wade through hepatitic diarrhea in Mumbai.

    There are also nice bathrooms that need to be toured as well. And some unusual ones. There's a bar I occasionally go to that has six inch screens in front of the urinal that play soft core porn while you urinate (no penetration).

    He could interview people about different bathroom manners...institute a bathroom rating system (3 and a half cheeks)...visiting the best and the worst and the weirdest that the world has to offer...investigating the story behind every one.

    Because if there is one thing we've learned from this thread, it's that every bathroom has a story to tell.

    awesome job. did you stay late / early to do it?
    could someone have walked in to see you hunched on the floor with the toilet rolls, bleeding and writing with merry abandon?
