Call CSI

Filed under: Ew. — Lex @ 5:07 pm

I don’t want to talk about the late unpleasantness here at Casa Correr* except to say that, as bad as bleach smells, it’s a definite improvement. But I wouldn’t be the nerd I am if I didn’t mention that in cleaning up one of the bathrooms just now, I saw something that I have never seen before, despite having cleaned way too many bathrooms in my life: splash patterns that are only explainable in terms of Einsteinian physics. Not to put too fine a point on it, if splashback from the toilet bowl were traveling through the person being ill before splattering upon the wall behind him/her, the splash patterns would make sense. Otherwise? Not so much.

Just thought you should know. We now return you to the usual, slightly less sickening, nonsense.

(*”correr” = , in Spanish, “to run,” which, if you drink a couple of beers and squint hard, bears some relationship to this blog’s title and, albeit coincidentally, to the subject of this post)


  1. The physics of toilets is a new science degree being offered at a variety of fine schools. But having had (1) son and (1) daughter, I can verify without fear of CSI denial that backsplash, or whatever it’s called in all its urban and suburban definitional meanderings, is plain ole disgusting and was nowhere in my Ketubah* that I recall.

    Kids get all kinds of sh*t all over the place.

  3. You seen this piece by Andrew Sullivan?
    “…All I can say about the atmosphere in the United States right now is that it feels as if the country is about to vomit. The nausea is there; the vote is imminent; and the purge necessary. And yet it hasn’t happened yet. Americans are still staring at the porcelain. …”

  4. Anna, please. My tummy is still a bit tender, and mentioning Andrew Sullivan on my blog is NOT helping. :-)
