You WHAT?

Falling or Flung?Falling or Flung? by M.Christian (cc by-nc-nd)

I've further subdivided the In The Bathroom category of MefiWiki::YouWHAT. I hope you people are happy. A comment from zamboni in the Proper Way to Prepare a Toothbrush Ask Me thread reminds us about the excellent, amusing, and instructive Mefi Wiki section on "all the threads that have exposed the shocking practices of our fellow Metafilterians."

Heyyyy, whatcha readin'?

Books@Leadenhall MarketBooks@Leadenhall Market by Dave Pearce (London) (cc by-nc-nd)

I thought it would be interesting if mefites posted lists of what they plan to or have read, listened to, or watched this summer. I don't want to leave out people in the Southern Hemisphere, though, so feel free to post seasonal lists for whatever the season you may be experiencing!

ArbitraryAndCapricious asks Mefites to share their seasonal reading/ listening/ whatever list

True Blue Loo

Bags of Family FunBags of Family Fun by Steve Rhode (cc by-nc-nd)

When I was a kid my Gran still had an outdoors loo. It was made of corrugated iron and next to the coal bunker, and when you were using it her - ancient, terrifying, inscrutable - neighbour Mrs Northsworthy would occasionally come out and bang a steel pan on the side. We never worked out whether she strongly objected to the very concept of bodily functions, or just liked to sow terror for its own sake. sobarel

Do you want to read Mefites' terrific tales of terrifying toilets? Of course you do.
