    Also, if improperly positioned, your dump will just land on that porcelain shelf part. And then it stinks to high heaven. My encounter with this stupid contraption is what made me realize how much water cuts the smell of a dump. Perhaps this shelf is there from olden days when maybe royals had their dumps inspected by a royal dump inspector (see History of the World Pt 1 or The Last Emperor).

    i encountered that as well.


    And as powerful as the flush can be, it just doesn't do a great job of cleaning the streaks. On more than one occasion I had to go back after the first flush and wipe down the porcelain with some toilet paper and then flush again just to get rid of them (note: this step would be skipped were I ever in public).

    My girlfriend way back said to me, "isn't it weird when you poop and it doesn't smell, but when you wipe and get it on your hand it smells horrible?"

    I was like :uhoh:

    I told her I have never gotten poop on my hand when wiping. I also told her she was single.

    30 mins ago i walked in to the men's room to do a #1 and *BOOM* I was immediately hit by an awful odor thanks to some guy in one of the stalls. It's a big bathroom with lots of air, and I have never encountered this before. I left immediately and still haven't peed.

    did you read the part where I have never encountered that before?? I've dealt with lots of shit in there, but nothing like this. I'm pretty sure the air was thicker, and another second I probably would have tasted it.

    Our bathroom is small. I hate the knowledge that when I smell that stench it is its particles getting into my olfactory receptors...

    I think the fan is broken in the men's room on my floor. It's not that the place smells like poo (though it usually does), but today the air is super thick and moist feeling, and there's a really potent smell of mold in the air. And it's really hot in there, you can smell the stale air as you walk near the door in the hallway.

    Not a good experience and I feel like my performance in there struggles as a result.

    It is like that on hot days in my building too. I think the humidity and the toilet water and stagnant air just doesn't mix well.

    This is my third summer enjoying said bathroom, but it has never been that bad (leaning me to believe that there must be a fan broken). Never has the stench worked its way into to hallway. No doubt that the heat and humidity brings it all to another level.

    I'm wondering if this explains my experience from 2 weeks ago with the wall of smell.

    If I was Mulder in the X-Files I would definitely want to investigate this bathroom.

    I don't know what that means. Must be a generational thing.

    You know we are the same age?
