You will NOT believe the obscure bathroom facts unearthed in the video below!
Today’s Weekly Calendar Fun Fact:
Toilets can be deadly! In 1760, King George II died falling off of one. It may seem odd but 40,000 Americans are injured by toilets every year.
The average person will spend 1 and 1/2 years in the bathroom during their lifetime and we know so little about it except for how to use it. While there is a World Toilet Organization, over 1 billion people in the world today do not use them and go out in the open. Take a look at Afghanistan… over 90% of the population has a television but only 7% have flush toilets. Knowing this, it seems we should be more appreciative of indoor plumbing and flushable toilets but we take them for granted.
So, on this Fun Fact Friday, don’t be like the other 7 million Americans who drop their phone in the toilets and enjoy these obscure bathroom facts! Don’t forget to mark November 19th on your calendars – it’s World Toilet Day!
If you need a bit of trivia for an icebreaker… the more features your smartphone has, the longer you sit on the toilet.
