# 9 Vintage Mexican Jewelry
In Bel Air, California a couple who had just moved into their new house found a surprise in their bathroom. Underneath the vanity in their bathroom, they noticed a strange area in the tile on the wall. After pushing and removing a pseudo tile, they discovered tons of pieces of vintage jewelry from Mexico. That’s probably the best surprise to find in a bathroom. Much better than going into your bathroom after a family dinner in a shady restaurant.
# 8 $51, 080 Dollars
One couple found a 50-year-old safe in their bathroom wall. It was filled with $51, 080 US dollars mostly in 100 dollar notes, a 1960 bottle of bourbon, and a book called A Guide For the Perplexed by E.F. Schumacher. There definitely seems to be a story behind this hidden stash, but if there is, it’s probably lost to history forever.
# 7 5 feet
It’s easy to assume that whoever is hiding behind this stall wall is doing something naughty, but if you look closer you might think twice about that suggestion. Look at their feet! What positions would they possibly be standing in? Maybe these are just the limbs belonging to a five-legged being? On second thought, I don’t want to try visualizing this
# 6 A Carp
Someone decided to make this McDonald’s employee’s day a little bit more interesting/annoying. While cleaning up the bathroom, he found a gigantic dead carp pushed up against the bathroom. First of all, who managed to sneak this huge fish into McDonald’s without anyone noticing. Secondly, why did they do that just to leave it in there? How rude do you have to be just to drop a carp on the floor of someone else’s workplace? They probably do not pay this employee enough to clean up someone else’s dirty carp.
# 5 Chopped Red Onions
Someone at this public high school decided it would be a good idea to bring a bag of chopped red onions to school and then throw them loosely into the toilet. Unless this is the beginning of some new fangled teen trend, I think that this was done by a comical genius. Or just a jerk with too much time on his hands. If there was anyone who would spend their time chopping up what looks like several red onions just to make some stranger’s life inconvenient, it would be a high school student.
# 4 Pig Head
This fun find was discovered in the bathroom of a rowing club in Amsterdam. One might be inclined to think this is the result of a bad case of food poisoning. Okay maybe not that, but it is definitely some sort of weird alternative satanic sacrifice right? Actually, it’s nothing too esoteric or bizarre. This is apparently one step in a series of hazing rituals in which new recruits to the rowing team. In order to join they must dine in the club, piss over the lady’s dressing room floor and put a pig’s head in the toilet. So it’s not some kind of cultist thing, just some careless youths making life hard for everyone.
# 3 A Rat
A guest at this hotel heard a mysterious scratching sound coming from his bathroom. Having learned from the mistakes of countless horror movie main characters, instead of investigating he called the hotel staff to investigate for him. What they found was a creepy, crawly monster. A huge rat had crawled its way up and gotten stuck inside of the pipes. Apparently, it's a common occurrence for rats to crawl up into toilet piping, but if I was staying at this hotel I would be checking out faster than that rat crawled into the toilet.
# 2 Snake in the Toilet
A patron of a Starbucks in San Antonio walked in to find this nightmare in the public toilet. Of all the things found in bathrooms, this might be the most unnerving. A small snake was coiled around the rim of the toilet, seemingly waiting for its prey. How did this snake even get in this Starbucks? I thought their bathrooms were only for paying customers. Seeing this snake crawl around a toilet really invokes a vivid image of a snake attacking your precious undercarriage. Makes you wonder what else might be lurking in the shadows of a public toilet.
# 1 Yo-Yo Ma & A Wombat
In 2011, world renowned Cellist Yo-Yo Ma was found lying on the bathroom floor with Wilbur the Wombat. So why was Yo-Yo Ma, a multiple Grammy-winning, 2010 recipient of the White House Presidential Medal of Freedom, horizontal in a public bathroom? Well apparently, Yo-Yo Ma had requested a meet and greet with Brookfield Zoo’s Wilbur the Wombat. So the wombat was brought out to a dressing room in the venue the famous cellist had been rehearsing at. When he took a break he was so excited to see the Wombat, and he did not hesitate to get right down on the ground and hang out. A World famous musician and a wombat might be the most surreal thing to find in a public bathroom.
Every once in a while we hear about some weird creature that was seen or caught somewhere in the world: a fisherman almost caught by chance a monster, or someone saw a giant human footprint in his garden. However, we tend to take it with a pinch of salt, because, you know, some people just love to make this kind of jokes. But the authors of the next videos were lucky enough to have a camera with them to catch the monsters on tape. So maybe scientists can give us now some logic explanation of this alarming footage, otherwise they would have to admit that these unknown creatures actually exist. So, here are 5 mystical creatures that were captured on camera.
A rat's ribs are hinged at the spine, enabling it to easily squeeze through the tightest spaces—like the pipes draining your toilet. And rats are great swimmers too; they can hold their breath for up to three minutes. See how quickly a rat can go from the city streets to your bathroom.

Top 11 list of the most amazing alternative ancient weapons you might recognize from popular culture like Zena or even X-men.
Subscribe to Hectic Express http://goo.gl/PTUyyV
6. Shoge Hook
This Japanese weapon is a form of Kaginawa which is characterized by a rope or chain attached to a hook. Technically, Kaginawa is a class of grappling hooks, but this is a highly dangerous and weaponised version of a grappling hook. The shoge hook has a ring on one end of a chain and a hook dagger combo on the other end. Much like the meteor hammer this weapon is meant to be used from a distance and swung around to gain speed and lethality...
5. Finger Claws
This alternative weapon is not exactly practical for humans outside of science fiction and fantasy, but it is one of the most aesthetically pleasing weapons on the list. This weapon will likely never see a dip in popularity thanks to the awesome examples that some of the animal kingdom give us for claws. Someone will always want tiger claws. You can find some pretty ornate claws throughout the internet, most notably etsy, which makes this weapon a fashion statement all on their own. Our favorite example of finger claws being used is in X2: X-Men United when Lady Deathstrike more than holds her own against Wolverine with her adamantium fingernail claws.
If you learned to love double edged weapons from watching Darth Maul in the Phantom Menace then this ancient Indian weapon is for you. The haladie is a double ended dagger that was typically used by warriors in the Indian Rajput clans during the 6th century. This blade was useful for both stabbing and slicing and the blades of the dagger could also be serrated to inflict even more damage and make wounds from this weapon even harder to heal. The blade was big for a dagger too. Each blade was 8.5 inches and the whole weapon measured in at 23 inches long. It’s also one of the earliest examples of triple edged blades. There isn’t really a modern representation of this weapon, but it definitely deserves to be showcased.
Staffs sadly don’t come with magic powers, despite what most pop culture would have you believe. Quarterstaffs were hugely popular in England for quite some time, but it was at its height during the late middle ages and the post-classical period. It’s essentially just a stick made of hardwood that measures in at 6 to 9 feet long. Traditionally this weapon was also tipped with some kind of metal like steel or iron to make it more effective in combat. The staff was used in stick fighting which was big in historical European martial arts. The weapon was excellent at defense and it was also used a lot as a thrusting weapon. It wasn’t exactly made for hacking and slashing. The technique when using this is a lot like fencing with a lot of footwork and flexibility. The most famous modern example of this weapon being used is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Rey which is one of the main characters in the movie.
Move aside brass knuckles, the is more awesome than you could ever be. These stealthy weapons were favored by ninjas and kunoichi. The weapon was a ring that had one to four spikes protruding from it. Despite what it appears to look like, these spikes weren’t worn with the spikes facing outward. They would actually be worn with the spikes facing the inside of the palm so that they could be used as a surprise attack. The spikes would pierce the opponent's flesh when they were slashed across the face or choked. The spikes were also sometimes dipped in poison to make the spikes on this ring even more deadly. They also sometimes had a hole in them so that warriors could thread a rope through the ring so that the rope could not be pulled away from them. There aren’t a lot of modern representations of this weapon either.
This is a weapon that actually predates recorded history, it has such a long tradition. This was the most common weapon in the world until guns started to be manufactured and you can find a history of archery in pretty much any culture in the world. The first evidence of bow use is during the Mesolithic period where archaeologists found evidence of stone tipped arrows in the skeletons of different animals. Archery is still popular today, but it has become an antiquated weapon in recent history. Bows are still used in hunting and the sport of archery. Being an accurate archer takes a lot of skill and practice and it certainly isn’t for everyone. It’s still popular in today's culture, though, almost every fantasy or dystopian work has some kind of character that uses a bow. Our favorite examples of famous bow-wielders are Hawkeye and Legolas.
Take a peek into the beginning of your favorite animals lives. Here are 19 Womb Photos.

If I didn’t mention already that these were bats, could you have guessed? The wings look similar but the head and color seem totally uncharacteristic of what think of when we see a bat. Their heads are similar to army helmets but they will certainly grow up and creep you out when they get chance and maybe even fly around in your hair.
The fastest land animal in the world can reach speeds of over 70 miles an hour in quick sprints. Seen in the photo we can remark its humble beginnings. On average the mother will give birth to 3 baby cheetahs at one time and will remain with its mother for couple years to it’s ready to hunt on its own.
Since snakes are reptiles, they don’t develop inside a womb but inside an egg that will be hatched when it’s mature. With no vertebrae, the snake is able to coil into a spiral shape and take up less space. Eventually it will grow so big that it pushes up against the walls of the eggs and breaks it open. Here were can see through it head and it’s growing circulatory system.
The internet is littered with tons of cat photos and I’m sure you’re wondering, “Hmm, I wonder what a cat fetus looks like.” Well don’t worry, HecticExpress has you covered. Cats can even be adorable even when they are covered in embryotic fluid. This little guy might grow up to be your pet!
9. The Tiger Shark
The tiger shark begins to look like the fierce predator in the ocean that it is at an early age with its teeth already popping out. They’ve earned a stature of being a savage man-eater only behind great white sharks and they won’t give up after just one bite. Unfortunately for this guy, his species is slowing becoming endangered due to fishing so anyone who gets bit probably deserves it.
If you say you’ve seen anything cuter than a baby penguin I’m sure I believe you. For right now it’s safe to say that it has some, well, growing up to do. This chick will hatch soon and be fed a nutrient of “milk” that actually comes from both parents and not the female, unlike with mammals. This is often regurgitated into the mouth of the baby. Not sure if I still think baby penguins are cute.
This baby horse isn’t quite big enough to ride just yet. He’s still covered in some type of plasma and still remains to be one color. Without mentioning that it was a horse, I probably would have guessed it was a camel due to the shape of the head and from the color. But I usually don’t play, “guess this fetus” professionally.
6. The possum
Can you guess which animal this one is? If you said possum, you’re correct! Possums are marsupials, so that means it will remain in its mother’s pouch until it’s mature enough to walk on its own. Possums are often scavengers and you might find this scurrying through your trash! Which leads us to our next marsupial!
Gday Mate! This baby kangaroo fetus is shown inside his moms’ womb and can’t do any hoppin’ around just yet! This herbivore is known for carrying their young or (joey) in their pouch for up to 450 days. Once it’s a full grown adult, it can as high as 6 feet and reach speeds of 35 miles an hour!
This penguin is getting ready to hatch! Older than our last penguin shown, you can notice the beak so more definable and actually looks like a penguin. As chicks, the feathers on their bodies remain grey until they shed this layer when they get older, leaving them black and white as expected.
Yo quiero taco bell? Named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua where they are believed to have originated from, this is one of the smallest breeds of dogs in the world. He’s even smaller when he’s inside of his mother’s womb. Normally Chihuahuas are born small liters, making it even easier for his madre!
2. Another Cat
If your cat has ever been pregnant you might have wondered what her kittens look like on the inside. No need to get an ultrasound Cat scan, Cats can smell and taste while only 7 weeks in the womb and begin to groom themselves. They begin to grow every day and are preparing to make their entry into the world.
Probably the most recognizable and magnificent animal on the list. Right now, this elephant fetus is small enough to fit inside its mothers’ womb, which is quite incredible when you consider that’ll be at least 6, 000 pounds. I don’t care what car you have, it’s still much heavier than your car!

8. Chelyabinsk Meteor
A large meteor struck the motherland on the 15th of February and was travelling at the speed of over 42, 000 miles per hour over the southern Ural region just north of Kazakhstan. The light at the time shine more intensely than the sun itself and some spectators felt the heat. The intense noise and impact from the meteor reaching the atmosphere caused windows to break and eardrums to be shattered. Luckily this missile from outer space didn’t make contact with the surface of the earth or the consequences could have been catastrophic.
7. The Russian Bigfoot
Also known as the Yeti or Almustay, this creature was captured and had DNA samples taken and was finally analysed as a sub-saharan African women but resembled nothing like a modern day human. The story is still extraordinary. This extremely tall creature was taken from her home in the remote areas of Caucasus Mountains. She was believed to be the last living Neanderthal. Is it possible cavemen still walked this planet? Scientists still believe it’s possible in isolated areas that receive little to no human contact.
6. The Mysterious Dolmens
Megalithic structures from thousands of years ago still stand today in Russia’s Western Caucasus, the same area where the Russian Bigfoot was found. While dolmens can be found in various parts of Europe, the ones found in Russia present a unique type of architecture that presented perfect circles through the stone blocks without the invention of the wheel yet. The normal weight for each structure can range from 15-30 tons meaning, it wasn’t easy transporting these stones. Modern technology would still not be able to transport such a massive weight and reconstruct these artifacts. Locals tell stories of giants who built these as burial places but no proof has been presented to back up these claims.
5. Kapustin Yar
Near the city of Volgograd, Russia lies a rocket launch and weapons development site that was established in the Soviet Union Era in 1946. Discovery of this site would be next to impossible unless you worked for the KGB. Soviets who captured German missiles during World War II began testing the new technology at this site. It’s also believed that this was the launching point for the Sputnik satellite. But with satellites from the Americans as well, we were able to eventually be aware of its existence. This is basically Russia’s Area 51 and even looks a little like Nevada in this photo.
This is a Russian coal mining settlement, originally built by Sweden then sold to the Soviet Union in 1927. Like many American ghost towns, once the last of the resource was extracted, people abandoned the settlement. The frigid climate and its remote location keeps most tourists away but it’s still accessible by snowmobile after taking a boat from the island. The climate has also preserved this city like the harsh climate of Russia has preserved the reminence of humans. This is one of the coldest and most northern settlements of humans and there’s no wonder people don’t want to continue living here.
3. Puzzling Alien Skull
A demonic looking skull was found in a Nazi bunker in Russia near a Nazi briefcase. The strange appearance of the skull leads many to wonder the possibility of Nazis who had once made contact with UFO’s. Some conspiracies believe it was a skull of a dead demon. Either way there is no possible way of knowing exactly. Skeptics believe the long exposure to sand and other elements of the bunker could have altered the shape. What do you think?
2. Vottovaara Mountain
In this forest, many have discovered strange broken boulders around the landscape. This forest is considered to be sacred to the people of the Saami tribe. Is it possible spirits actually live in the boulders like these people claim? Many seem to be precisely cut as if a scalpel is able to cut through stone. Many are in shock and awe after witnessing for themselves the mysteries of nature.
1. Radioactive Valley of Death UFO’s
Russian men searching for gold in Siberia came made a discovery that they will
never forget. In Siberia’s Death Valley, radioactive metal dome cauldrons were discovered that were believed to have been caused by a UFO crash landing. This startling claim is actually backed up by science. 5 metallic cauldrons were discovered and buried under marsh like swamps. 2 of the team members got ill and the symptoms were similar to radiation poisoning. According to local legends, these are the remains of a battle between UFO’s. In this massive, unique country, nothing would surprise me

5. Sea Snake VS Tiger Fish
This intense animal battle was found by Australian diver, Rick Trippe. He captured this fight in 2015 when he was diving in the Darwin Harbour, which is a part of the city of Darwin in Northern Australia. The pictures show a massive sea snake and an equally large stone fish locked in a stalemate with both of their jaws clamped to each other. The diver ended up intervening in the fight because he knew that they would kill each other if they continued in the dead lock. He made the hilariously risky decision to pull the snake out of the water and separate the two of them before they killed each other. As soon as he put the snake back into the water, the snake immediately went back to trying to kill the fish, though. Go figure.
4. Loses Leg To Shark, Fights To Protect Them
Krishna Thompson was on vacation with his wife for their 10th wedding anniversary when he was pulled out to sea by his leg. His leg got so badly shredded in the attack that he had to have it amputated above the knee. He was able to swim to shore even with his leg in tatters. 10 years after the incident, though, he met at the UN along with other shark attack survivors to try to convince people to make more a conservation effort for the animals. He admitted that he was in their territory and that we need sharks. He believes that they set the balance of the entire ocean and they shouldn’t be hunted like they are.
3. Loses Arm, Keeps Surfing
Bethany Hamilton was a professional surfer that survived a nasty shark attack where she lost her arm. The story is probably familiar because it received massive media attention while also eventually being adapted into a popular 2011 movie. She was 13 at the time of the attack in 2003. She said that she actually didn’t feel any pain during the attack and she was numb all the way to the hospital. The shark that bit her was a 14-foot-long tiger shark that was killed not long after the attack. She returned to surfing just one month after the attack and she went professional when she entered into a surfing competition just a year later.
2. 72 Hours in an Air Pocket
This insane underwater experience happened in 2013 when a ship sank off of the Nigerian coast. Okene was actually a chef on the ship when the ship sank due to a “sudden ocean swell”, whatever that meant. The ship fell 100 feet below the surface of the ocean at 5am but the ship’s chef was able to find an air pocket in the sunken ship that he spent and survived three days inside that little pocket of air. The air pocket was already only four feet and rising, but he was able to hold back the water using whatever he had around him. The real miracle is surviving on the air that was available. When atmospheric pressure increases when you get further down into the ocean the gasses become denser which is helpful because that meant that there was more oxygen available. It also meant that there was more CO2, which is a little bit less good news. He was lucky because the water was cold enough that it absorbed a lot of the CO2 which kept the levels from becoming lethal. He was eventually found by divers and most people are calling what happened to him a miracle.
1.Ripped Apart by a Shark
This diver, ironically, was actually responsible for one of the most horrific shark attack scenes in movies and was also the victim of one of the most violent shark attacks in history. Rodney Fox was attacked by a shark that broke all of his ribs and punctured his lung before he was able to swim to shore and to safety. He ended up getting 462 stitches before he was in the clear. He has become a shark expert since then and he even invented the first diving shark cage. Despite the violent attack, he has also dedicated his life to saving the animals from illegal hunting and fishing practices. He was diving off of the coast of South Australia in 1963 when the shark attacked. Not much was known about sharks at that time and when he first felt the giant shark, he thought that it was a massive submarine. The shark also shredded his right arm so bad that he has the shark tooth embedded into his arm ever since the incident.

A home is a place where you feel safe and maybe even a place you feel comfortable enough to walk around in our underwear. But imagine one day, sat on the couch in your tighty whities, you look over and see a small handle in the floor underneath the coffee table. You open the trap door to find a hidden room and evidence that someone has actually been living there all along!
Ok, so this scenario is fictional, but here are ten hidden rooms that actually were found in people homes.
#1 AN EMPTY ROOM
Jasson and Kerri Brown bought a house back in 2005. While exploring their now abode and preparing to do some renovations they discovered a passageway behind a bookshelf. It led to an empty room. But in the room they found a folded up piece of paper with the words: "You found it!" on the front. They unfolded the paper to reveal a note from a previous owner, explaining that they had been forced to move because of a serious toxic mold problem that the house had.
Upon reading this the Browns decided to sue the broker who sold them the property for not disclosing this information.
#2 THE HIDDEN CRAWLSPACE
The reddit user "LMBRJACK" posted pictures of a hidden crawlspace he found in his home. Investigating further he'd found a locked door and when he managed to break in, he found a sound proofed room with electrical outlets, a safe and a briefcase. Inside the briefcase he found jewelry and various envelopes full of money from all around the world. A happy find! But inside the safe he found a bunch of suspicious tapes and written on one were the words, no no no no no no... Apparently the police are still looking into those videotapes and say that it's relevant to an ongoing case. Creepy...
#3 GHOST TENANT
Because of the strange noises they heard, one group of Ohio state university students were convinced that the house they were staying in was haunted. That is until they did some investigating and found a cabinet door that actually lead to a hidden room. This room had a bed, a tv, and other evidence that proved someone had been living there secretly all along, going about their daily lives almost undetected alongside the students.
#4 UNDER THE PANTRY
On student was living quite happily in a house his parents had bought him New Mexico. However as nice as that sounds at night he'd hear banging coming from underneath the house. After investigating he found a square door in the pantry floor. The door lead to a pretty creepy room, with a desk, lights and a recently smoked cigarette... Spooky!
#5 THE TRAP-DOOR
Redit user DEMC7 moved into an apartment and all seemed ok. Until they discovered a door in the floor. The door lead to a dungeon like room with block built bed structures and graffiti on the wall. The center of the floor looked like it had been dug up, suggesting something may have been berried underneath.
#6 SINGER CASTLE
This awesome property was built in 1896 by the president of the Singer sewing machine company. This castle is full of all sorts of hidden passages, rooms and doors and even paintings you can spy though while in some of the hidden rooms! Oh yeh, and it has a dungeon... So...
#7 HIDDEN CHAPEL
It took the Farlers 3 year to finally pluck up the courage to investigate into the strange metal grill they had in their house. Upon removing the grate they uncovered whole other room. The very old looking room had several shelves and what appeared to be some form of religious cross on the floor. It's believed to have been some sort of chapel, possibly used by persecuted Catholics hundreds of years ago.
#8 BEHIND THE BOOKS
One anonymous family discovered a passageway behind a bookshelf in the parents bedroom. The passageway had a spiral staircase that led to a single room. In the room, there was evidence that someone was actually living there! They found candy wrappers and items that had been taken from the house, suggested the person had be walking around while they were sleeping or were away.
#9 THE DUNGEON
An Australian family noticed that their carpet always seem to sag and the floor never really felt that stable. Upon investigation they found that under the carpet there was a door that lead to a dungeon! Well, some some sort of dungeon looking basement anyway. It had an old rusty bed frame, electrical cables hanging from the ceiling and an old unused fireplace.
#10 ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE ROOM
In pretty much all the zombie apocalypse games and movies that are out there, there's one thing that you can never have too much of. And to the surprise of this one American who had just moved in, he'd hit the mother load. Moving a board on the basement room wall, the man found a hidden room with enough ammunition for a small war (or to survive a zombie apocalypse). On weird thing is though, no guns, just empty gun cases... Not so good for a zombie apocalypse.
Who would have thought that people would take the normal everyday toilet and create it into something CRAZY? Here are 21 of the most unbelievable toilets.
Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos.
14 — If it’s yellow, let it mellow…
This remote loo is found in West Antarctica! According to a few sites, people in Antarctica collect their urine in bottles and at the end of the day, the urine is put into a U Drum. These outhouses are for number 2’s only, and the waste goes into packet which lines a bin. When that’s full, its closed off and put on a ship where it’s disposed of properly.
13 — Bathroom visits will never be the same…
After using this bathroom at Madarao Kogen Mountain Resort, you may never want to use your own ordinary bathroom again. If you’re not into heights, this one may not be for you – as they have printed an image surrounding the cubicle – to look like you’re about to head downwards with your skis perfectly in place!
12 — Sitting pretty…
This King Tut Toilet looks like it’s really only fit for Royalty! The word Toilet is a French word, which was first recorded in 1540. It came from Toilette, meaning little cloth – which was the little cloth placed over people shoulders when they had their hair cut. The word evolved to include grooming and body care, and eventually referred to a room where people groomed, and finally to conclude where did their “business”.
11 — Shy bladder syndrome…
Now this is truly a bizarre toilet! These loos are found in Switzerland… and the occupant can see out at everything happening around him or her, but no one can see in. It was designed by Monica Bonvicini, who uses 1-way glass to create this unique effect. Just on a side note, the inside of the loo has to be kept dark, so as not to allow light to pass through. The moment it’s lit, well your business is on public display, in the worst way possible.
10 — Up for a little fun?
Who says going to the loo has to be boring! These Super Mario urinals are just the thing to add an element of fun to an otherwise mundane activity.
9 — Sitting on the throne…
This toilet takes you back in time and it’s been credited to Sir John Harrington, who designed the first toilet that would take away the need of tossing excrement manually. His Godmother was Queen Elizabeth the 1st, and she had one installed in Richmond palace in 1596. Wastes were flushed into a waste pot, which had to be emptied often.
8 — Royal Flush…
Statistics have said that the average person spends about 3 years of their life sitting on the loo, so why not bling it up a little with this beautiful sparkly toilet! Might set you back a few thousand dollars, but you’ll definitely feel like a royal sitting on this throne.
7 — Quick in and out…
This is one look you’re not going to be spending 3 years sitting on! Interesting to note, a student in Florida did a test on the Ice one finds in restaurants, and the water from a toilet bowl, and was horrified to discover that the ice in the restaurant contained more germs than the water in the toilet bowl!
6 — Nothing to see here…
A quirky addition to the men’s bathroom! Studies have proven that during the half time of the Super Bowl, is when the most number of toilets are flushed at one time. It would be interesting to note how much water is used during that time.
5 — An odd bit of toilet humour?
This is just bizarre, not only is it a bit creepy – but the added mirrors on either side are just strange too. Is it necessary to view yourself from every angle whilst taking a leak?
4 — Comfort is the order of the day…
Now our statistic from earlier of 3 years might change, because if this was your toilet – you would be spending way longer there, then the average 3 years. A survey conducted in 1992 revealed that public toilets in Britain were the worst in the world, followed by Thailand, Greece and France!
3 — No under 18’s…
You would hope that these bathroom facilities are only available in placed where there are just adults… because this would take a lot of explaining! Did you know, the first movie to feature a flushing toilet was Psycho in 1960?
2 — Best seat in the house…
Wouldn’t you love to have this in your home! They really should be marketing this one to parents, as this would make potty training an absolute breeze! 1890 was the very first year that toilet paper was marketed on the roll, much as we know it today!
1 — The Batcave…
This is surreal, and you’re about to go on a journey never thought possible… just by simply relieving yourself! You’re going to walk out of this bathroom feeling like you’re a superhero about to save the world!... just don’t forget to put the seat down!
