In college, someone put an old magazine with a clown on the cover in the toilet.

I once heard a guy brag back in school that he flushed an M80 down the toilet in a McDonalds in Upstate NY someplace along NY 17 near Hancock, and it went off busting the plumbing.  I do not see that happening as the fuse to the firecracker would be put out do to the lack of oxygen from the water.

Anyway he said that there was a loud thud when it went off and an Out of Order sign was on the bathroom door the next day.

Someone flushed an M-80 down the toilet at my high school years before I attended school there. That's why there was a stall with no toilet.

Also, back before I went to school there, there was a dance where someone clogged a toilet by trying to flush a jacket. Since the toilet was ruined, people went outside and peed on the biology teacher's car.

-The people who designed it obviously didn't do a good job with the stalls- I'm 6" and I can see over the stall doors.
You're only 6 inches tall!? :wow:
That would mean I could see under the door.

I can see under the doors too, if I crouch down. Unfortunately, the women tend to scream when I do that.

How could it be possible for an ignited firework to go off in a tank full of water? Wouldn't the water extinguish the flame upon contact? I've always been skeptical of claims that people flushed lit fireworks and they blew up the toilet.

I've never tried it, but I would think you'd have to light the fuse, let it burn most of the way down, and flush the toilet such that you can drop the firecracker into the whirlpool just before the fuse burns all the way down so that it enters the pipe and explodes before it really has a chance to get wet. Seems dangerous.

I swear, based on the way some of the bathroom doors are installed, that it takes an advanced doctorate degree to design them properly.

Yeah, it's pretty bad when someone still hasn't figured out how to slide it into holes.

Locks are tricky that way, I suppose.

I used to buy waterproof firecrackers when I was growing up.  I could light one, drop it into a bottle of water, screw the cap on, toss the bottle up in the air, and watch it explode.  I have no idea if M80s are waterproof, but it's certainly possible for a wick to burn underwater.

I will never forget the motel my mom took us to stay at in Montreal.  It had a loud toilet similar to that of a toilet on the upper floors of a skyscraper where it would roar when flushing.  This was a ground level room, but had some sort of pumping device to pump the water fast into the toilet in our room hence why tall buildings flush loudly.

My Aunt Jenny was elderly at the time and would need to go every half hour all night long from the massive amounts of coffee she drank.  All night long that damn thing would wake me up as Aunt Jenny went to release her coffee.
