2015 Shorts

2015 Shorts are thoughts that popped into my head during 2015 that didn't merit a post on their own. Each year, I set up this post and jot down whatever pops into my head and whatever isn't a link. (Those go into Link-O-Rama) Each time I update this post, it rises to the top of the front page; I'm sure that this throws the Google bot off during its biennial visit. At the end of the year, this post moves into the Dec 31st spot and serves as a signpost of my dementia. Let's get started!

Freaky!

Two psychics doing their thing.

While bored, quiet, and inconspicious in a local Tim Horton's, I closed my eyes and screamed "HELP!!" in my head as loud as I could to catch out any unsuspecting psychics. When I opened my eyes, a table of four in the corner, with two men and two women, were intently staring at me.


Coma.

Toilet Roll.

sTEpHan hOPpE's toilet roll

Getting up at 5AM every morning is sometimes tough. This morning while going to the bathroom, I noticed that I was out of toilet paper. So, I flushed and then grabbed the empty roll, bobbled it, and it went straight into the flushing toilet. Reacting like a cat I stood stupidly staring at the roll dancing around in the water. By the time I finally reacted by plunging my hand into the toilet to get it, it had disappeared out of reach. A second flush confirmed what I expected - that the cardboard roll is stuck in the toilet’s p-trap.

Luckily an hour later I had completely forgotten about it and I used the toilet again, only remembering about the stuck cardboard roll just a fraction of a second after I flushed, overflowing the toilet completely.

So…how long does it take for toilet roll cardboard to break down in cold water?
