    Don't forget about the Toilet Tortoise, the Lavatory Llama, the Commode-O-Dragon, the Privy Prairie Dog, or the Kanga-Loo.

    Fortunately never had a critter sneak up through the pipes, but certainly have heard stories of snakes getting in to the bowl. Eerie shit that would render an eerie shit.

    I used to live in a normal house infested with 2 to 3 inch coackroaches. They used to flock my bathroom, then kitchen and anywhere in the house. I severally hired professionals to eradicate them but they would spring back a day after the exercise. Although previously cleaned, one had to clean any utensil afresh before even drinking water. I had to move house so I now live on the highest floor in an 11 story apartment. A place so cool not even a house fly can make their way to the top

    Even big mammals may target these places. Asses appear in our toilet a couple times a day.

    We keep finding frogs, or a frog, in our basement. Much rather have a frog that visits than a rat… or a snake.

    I had two rats come up through the toilet once (maybe they were man and wife?)
    In the morning when I went to pee I saw one swimming in the water but couldn't climb up due to the ridge of the toilet seat after an hour there were 2!
    Freaked out, I then closed all the exit points and opened 1 drain cover then lowered a stick into the toilet bowl and switched off the light, they soon climbed through the stick and went into the drain.

    Spiders are most common i have found. Wolf spiders not noticed until after getting up from sitting for minutes. Scary venomous little shit! As well as a black widow inches from me

    I've been traveling in the Australian outback and if you are lucky enough to find a camping site or a roadhouse you have to check for spiders, scorpions, snakes and frogs everytime you sit down. I've encountered all of these except scorpions while doing my business and I have to say that the snake was by far my least favourite because she was behind the bowl when I came in and it slithered in between me and the door, making for 5 very uncomfortable minutes before I could carefully make my way out of there.

    There was a fat frog in my grandfather's boot once. My cousin got a massive fright that night when he stuck his hand on the boot.

    One time I was going to take a shower, I open the door to the bathroom, step into the tub, and there was a mouse just chilling in the corner of the bathroom.

    Rats have a bad rep, but they're one of the coolest rodents imo.

    I had a frog in my toilet before that splashed water at me. Later I found it in the living room and it took me forever to catch it. I managed to get it inside a box but I needed some cardboard to place under it. I went to the garage to find some but I forgot my key and locked myself out at 3am in the morning. That wasn't the best day.

    My girlfriend's cat likes to drink from the toilet, and when we first moved in together, my cat was very curious about her's. Once while he was having a refreshing drink from the bowl, my cat jumped onto the cistern to watch, sat on the flush button, and effectively flushed his head down the toilet.

    I was in the shower at the time, so it didn't matter too much that I pissed myself laughing.

    Well, one of the cats likes to drink out of the toilet but it's pretty obvious that he's there so I have never sat on him. My old roommate got bitten on the bum by a spider when she sat on the toilet. We called poison control because, at the time, I couldn't identify spiders. The person on the phone at poison control laughed when I told him what the spider looked like so all the happened was that my friend was annoyed that everyone was laughing at her for getting bitten on the bum by a non-poisonous spider.

Debris Disk Simulations Generate Spirals, Rings and Arcs

Published

on

By



When exoplanet scientists first spotted patterns in disks of dust and gas around young stars, they thought newly formed planets might be the cause. But a recent NASA study cautions that there may be another explanation: one that doesn’t involve planets at all.
An alternative explanation suggests the dust and gas in the disk can form the patterns themselves when they interact with starlight.
When high-energy UV starlight hits dust grains, it strips away electrons. Those electrons collide with and heat nearby gas. As the gas warms, its pressure increases and it traps more dust, which in turn heats more gas. The resulting cycle, called the photoelectric instability (PeI), can work in tandem with other forces to create some of the features astronomers have previously associated with planets in debris disks.

A 2013 study suggested PeI could explain the narrow rings seen in some disks. The model also predicted that some disks would have arcs, or incomplete rings, which weren’t directly observed in a disk until 2016.

The new simulation includes an additional new factor: radiation pressure, a force caused by starlight striking dust grains.

Light exerts a minute physical force on everything it encounters. This radiation pressure propels solar sails and helps direct comet tails so they always point away from the Sun. The same force can push dust into highly eccentric orbits, and even blow some of the smaller grains out of the disk entirely.

The new research modeled how radiation pressure and PeI work together to affect the movement of dust and gas, and also found that the two forces manifest different patterns depending on the physical properties of the dust and gas.

NASA new Discovery 2018 of World

Published

By



This video is about NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed the first known system of 2018 seven Earth size planets around a single star. Three of these planets
are firmly located in the habitable zone, the area around the parent star where a rocky planet is most likely to have liquid water.

The discovery sets a new record for greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system. All of these seven
planets could have liquid water key to life as we know it under the right atmospheric conditions, but the chances are highest with the three in the habitable
zone.
This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” said
Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. Answering the question ‘are we alone’ is a top science
priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable
step forward toward that goal Thanks for watching
