'She's Actually in the Toilet, This Is Hilarious' - Liam Payne Embarrasses Girlfriend Cheryl in Crin

Liam Payne has a knack for embarrassing Cheryl Cole in interviews.The former One Direction singer (24) has reportedly been in trouble with his girlfriend of two years before for oversharing in interviews, particularly on radio, but this one definitely takes the cake. While speaking on BBC Radio One with Nick Grimes from his Surrey home, the host asked him to involve the Fight for This Love singer (34), when he revealed she was in the bathroom.He can be heard saying, "Chez are you there Where are you She's actually in the toilet, this is hilarious."The toilet humour didn't end there as he asked her when she was done, asking, "Was it a number one or two"Unsurprisingly, he added that she was "going to kill me when I get off the phone".Earlier this year, he jokingly referred to her as "Old Chezza".After their son Bear was born last year, Cheryl opted out of the limelight, while her other half was quick to share details about their growing family at every opportunity.Most recently, he spoke candidly about the difficulties about being a first time father, in particular, at the beginning when he was "desperate" to replicate a similar bond that had formed between Cheryl and their baby."Never once did I use the word jealous... a relationship between a mother and a newborn is the most beautiful thing," he clarified on Twitter on Wednesday."I just said I struggled with my place in this and what I could do to become a part of that with not having the same natural maternal instincts as a mum does."Women have amazing almost superhuman powers at this the way they connect with a child is incredible."I just had to find things that helped me benefit and become a part of this beautiful relationship and I think a lot of dads find their feet the same way."Online Editors

Hide the Toilet, the Buyers Are Coming, Home Staging - Beyond the Obvious
Staging is fast becoming a necessary marketing tool for selling a home. Staging is a technique that showcases a home for a smoother, faster and more profitable sale. There are many aspects to staging a home. I'd like to wax on here about one area in particular that is often overlooked and unattended to but very obvious to potential buyers.The day to day living we do is a necessary part of our lives. We cook, clean, do laundry and yes, even use the bathroom. These daily activities often are overlooked in the selling process because they are so routine, almost expected. It is important when showing your home to present all areas in the best possible condition, yes even including your toilet.Let's liken this a hotel stay. Upon arrival we don't often think about other people having to bathe, launder, throw garbage away or heaven forbid - use the bathroom! Even though we are fully aware that potentially hundreds of people have been there before us, we would not want to arrive at our luxury suite and find any unmentionables there - we expect it to be clean, fresh and neat. The appearance of the room matters. Crisp hospital corners on the sheets and toilet paper edges folded into triangles make us happy.It is no different while selling your house. In fact it is even more important. These are "guests" who are intent on buying a home - not looking for an extended holiday stay. No one wants to imagine YOU doing anything in your lavatory facilities and let's try and banish all thoughts of what really goes on in there shall we?It's silly when you come right down to it because we all do it. However, it may surprise you how many people are actually turned off by the sight of someone elses' garbage, dirty laundry or toiletries sitting out. An open toilet bowl - especially if not clean - is a huge turnoff and any parents of young children reading - can you catch my drift here? - get the OUST quick!Here is a quick list to use as gentle reminders of the importance of doing these and other things you may not have thought of while in the process of selling your home.BATHROOMSRemove all toiletries and electronics off the counters, especially medications. Place medicine in zippered plastic bags away from cabinets. Prescription medication is often a stolen item from homes for sale. This same rule can apply to firearms, knives or other weapons in a home. Always keep lids down on toilets. Keep toilets clean and fresh. Towels, mats and other bath products should be out of sight while showing and dry off glass doors once you've finished your morning shower.LAUNDRYRemove all laundry and cleaning supplies from sight - keep neatly inside cabinet, storage unit or the garage. Place dirty laundry inside a nice looking storage unit - wicker baskets are attractive or cloth duffel bag, but keep dirty piles out of site of potential buyers - even inside washer or dryer if you're in a hurry.KITCHENRemove and empty garbage cans daily. Keep out of sight and smell. Throw away garbage that will smell worse as the day progresses, many items will do this from tuna fish, pet food, beef, poultry, pork drippings and containers from last night's dinner. This includes things in your refrigerator that may have started to stink. People look everywhere! Try to keep strong smelling cooking odors at a minimum - if you MUST fry fish or cook an exotic dish try doing it outside on a gas grill if there is a side burner. Air out the house well if you must do it inside.PETSThis is hard to do but ideally, remove pets from premises while showing, crate or keep in one place and out of buyer's way. Many people have allergies to and/or fear of animals, even if they are the most gentle in nature. If you have inside pets, remove their bowls daily (especially if in kitchen) until returning for the evening - or place somewhere out of sight where pet has access. Clean kitty litter box, hamster cages, bird droppings or as painful as it seems in the short term relocate the dear ones to a friend's house who's willing to temporarily house them or find a good doggy day care.Enact "Poop Patrol" daily on the perimeter of the exterior of your house. You wouldn't want your freshly cleaned or new carpets to be stained or smelly in case an unsuspecting buyer steps in one of your puppy's piles. (This has happened more often than you may think) No more beating around the bush. Before you leave the house for a showing remember to hide the toilet, the buyers are coming!
Shattered Family of Mother-of-two, 39, Who Died on Board a Sydney Harbour Party Boat Say She Was Acc
The grief-stricken family of a mother-of-two who died on board a party boat in Sydney Harbour believe she was locked in a toilet with poisonous gas.Shalina Abdulhussein, 39,was found slumped over a bathroom sink on the three-level Lady Rose catamaran on February 2.On Monday, her distraught husband Daljit Singh buried her, and said he believes his wife died because she was trapped. He is now considering legal action.Mr Singh has told his wife's family he believes a modification to the toilet cubicle's sink allowed poisonous gas to flood into the cabin.He says excessive levels of hydrogen sulphide filled the toilet and his wife struggled to unlock the hatch in the windowless cubicle.Ms Abdulhussein's aunt, Zahra Barhmal, believes her niece suffered a heart attack seconds after inhaling the toxic gas.'Her husband is in deep shock. He said Shalina had no chance, he understandably wants answers,' she told The Daily Telegraph from her home in London.'We are all in shock but right now her husband is numb, he's in survival mode for their two boys.'He adored Shalina, she went on a boat for just four hours to celebrate a birthday, she was so happy about going, he never expected to never see her again.'Crew members aboard the Lady Rose didn't realise the mother-of-two was missing until friends raised the alarm.They broke down the cubicle door, but they were too late.The Australian Maritime Safety Authority and RMS continue to investigate the death, with investigators finding defects in other vessels, including the boat's sewage disposal systems.Partygoers on the same boat as Ms Abdulhussein reportedly complained about a 'strange smell' hours before she was found dead.A report on her death is being prepared for the Coroner.Daily Mail Australia has contacted All Occasion Cruises for comment.It is understood the company will not be commenting until all the facts are known.
Scientists Look in the Toilet in Search for New Cancer Treatment
Scientists seeking to supercharge advanced cancer drugs are looking in an unexpected place for inspiration: the toilet.New research suggests a link between the trillions of bugs that inhabit the bowels and the effectiveness of immune therapies--drugs that tap the body's defenses to fight tumors. That has spurred companies worldwide to start delving into patients' stools in search of a better understanding of microbes in the digestive system.Those tiny colonizers, part of the body's first line of defense against infection and with a mix that's unique to every patient, can affect people's susceptibility to disease as well as their response to treatment. At least a half-dozen biotech startups are jostling to turn that science into a commercial product to target the immune system via the gut, and at least two companies aim to begin testing experimental treatments on patients by next year."The biotech sector really started paying attention when the current hot drugs of immune therapy started getting implicated" with the gut flora, says Jonathan Peled, a bone marrow transplant physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.While immune therapies show vast promise, and their annual sales may triple to $22 billion by 2020, they've only been proven to work on a small minority of cancer patients. They also often trigger brutal and unpredictable side effects such as hepatitis and colitis, an inflammation of the gut that can cause debilitating diarrhea. Market leaders Merck & Co., AstraZeneca Plc, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. and Roche Holding AG would stand to make billions more if their medicines worked in more people with fewer toxic reactions.Investors ranging from venture capitalists Seventure Partners and Flagship Pioneering Inc. to pharma giants Bristol-Myers and Johnson & Johnson have pledged at least $125 million to cancer microbiome startups in recent years. Clustered around Paris and Boston, the new companies have analyzed tens of thousands of stool samples, which are mostly bacteria from the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. "Today it's as common as collecting blood," says Pierre Belichard, CEO of French biotech Enterome SA.The gut microbiome's link to immune therapies draws on a pair of pioneering research papers published in 2015. One showed how fecal transplants from human patients treated with an immune oncology drug kick-started the medicine's effectiveness in mice. The other found that certain bacteria combined with a second immune drug froze tumor growth. "There was a wow factor" in the results, says Isabelle de Cremoux, Seventure's chief executive officer. Her firm has invested in Enterome and four other companies working on cancer microbiome projects.The bacterial ecosystem may help doctors reach three key goals to make immune therapies work better. The first is to better determine who can be helped. Second is how to tweak the body's defenses so more patients respond to treatment. And third, how to prevent a common side effect: the immune system attacking the gut. Further off, but more tantalizing, would be a treatment that leverages gut bacteria to fight, or even prevent, cancer.All those betting on this nascent field face the same question: how to turn the science into a product that's safe and effective. It's still unclear which bugs are most beneficial and whether it's better to place them in the body via a fecal transplant or an oral pill, or whether researchers should focus on drugs based on their effects. The scientific challenge will be to identify the "best ecosystem," a combination of bacteria that's effective and not toxic, says Laurence Zitvogel, a researcher at the Institut Gustave Roussy, a cancer center near Paris. She led one of the groundbreaking mouse trials and started EverImmune, a company to test potential therapies.Belen Garijo, health-care chief at Germany's Merck KGaA, cautions that it's unclear whether the approach will be effective once it moves from lab mice to humans. "We haven't seen any real data yet," says Garijo. Seres Therapeutics Inc., which is researching the microbiome to fight a wide range of diseases, last year failed to prove the effectiveness of an experimental treatment for a bacterial infection known as C. difficile that had shown promise in earlier tests.The difference between the C. difficile project and cancer is that to prevent infection, doctors try to restore patients' good gut bugs to beat out the bad ones. In oncology, the goal is to "perturb the immune system in a beneficial way," rousing it into action to attack cancer cells, says David Cook, Seres's chief scientific officer. "There's some indirect evidence, but very strong indirect evidence, that the microbiome can do that."Companies must now focus on converting"shots on goal" into something that will reliably help patients, says Carl Decicco, head of drug discovery at Bristol-Myers. The U.S. immune oncology pioneer signed a deal last November to work with Seventure's Enterome, and by next year expects to start two human trials involving gut-bug cancer research. "We have high hopes," Decicco says. In the pharma industry these days, "if you ignore the microbiome, you're making a big mistake."
Royal Mail Customer Is Gutted to Get Note Saying His Parcel Was Delivered Through an Open Windowput
ORDERING packages online comes with pitfalls.There's always a worry that you won't be in to greet your prized parcel and you'll have to join and endless queue at the post office.Or, worse still, they'll try and leave it somewhere helpful for you and it'll be damaged/stolen by the time you're back.OR, an even bigger nightmare is the note announcing your package is with a helpful neighbour, who you usually try not to make eye-contact with and now you have to march up and ring on their doorbell.No one wants that.One Twitter user had his own unique run-in with dodgy parcel delivery yesterday.Sam Cooke took to the micro-blogging site to post a picture of the two notes he was left to inform him that he hadn't been home when the postman had delivered his package.The first read "put through window" but the second follow up said: "I'm really sorry I think your parcel might have fallen in the toilet accidentally."The funny tweeter also included a picture of his sad looking package sitting in the toilet bowl.The hilarious update has received more than 3,000 likes and more than 2,000 retweets since he posted it at 6.32pm yesterday.Fellow tweeters found the picture side-splittingly funny.One said: "Made my day! Hahahahaha"While another added: "That is amazing."If you're concerned about the safety of Sam's package you can rest easy, in a follow up post he said: "Thought someone was winding me up, how mad is that? box was too wide to hit the water though it's safe."The Royal Mail have responded to the message to apologise for the incident.They said: "Hi Sam, I'm so sorry they've popped it through the window. We're following so please DM & we'll do what we can to help out & get this sorted."If you're keen to know what was in the brown packet, we can reveal it was printer ink and that is it safe and fully functional. Phew.But while this delivery man struggled to complete this duty, an Irish postman went above and beyond to deliver a Christmas card with a ridiculously complicated address.
Why I Avoided Going to the Toilets at School
The cold, stainless steel urinal is a place where many men feel self-conscious. I know I certainly did when I was at school. But size wasn't my issue. Appearance was.Growing up as a 1980s Greek kid in an Australian school of children descended mainly from the British Isles, I felt my background acutely. I was ashamed of my long surname. I was embarrassed by my parents' foreign tongue. I wanted to bleach my brown hair blonde and swap my brown eyes for blue. But above all, I wanted an inch of skin on my body gone. My foreskin.It was a reminder of my difference in the most personal and intimate of places. A new feature-length documentary on NetflixAmerican Circumcision, explores both sides of this controversial and taboo issue.For me, it's a topic which remains very personal."Eww, why does your willy look so weird...!" was a refrain I often received.I already had enough angles from which classmates could attack me. I didn't need one more.The majority of my male classmates had been circumcised. It was the practice at the time in Australian hospitals, but not in the Greek one where I was born.At first, I tried to hide my shame. I went to one end of the urinal and turned away. When that didn't work, I had to avoid the toilet during recesses and lunchtimes altogether, and time my visits to within class hours. This annoyed my teachers no end, and sometimes my bladder as well. But they didn't understand.As a last resort, I retreated to the confines of the cubicle. It was the only way I could get any privacy. To avoid suspicion, I sat down on the toilet and pretended to do a number two, even ripping toilet paper at the end. A basic human function was taking up far too much time and energy.Entering my blossoming teenage years, and despite my hopes, the hormone-charged teenage brain began to focus even more on the teenage groin. Embarrassment morphed into fear. What the hell would I do if I was ever with a girl Would she avoid touching me there Would she recoil in disgust Would she tell the other girls In my mind, the answer to all these questions was a resounding yes. Fortunately, a pair of thick glasses, bad frizzy hair, and a bumfluff moustache meant I was rarely in with a shot.As a consequence, I stayed a virgin until my twenties. But by then, another fear had taken over - disease.My foreskin wasn't just embarrassing - it was congenitally tight. I was unable to retract it and stay hygienic inside. The medical term for this condition is phimosis. The word is from the Greek phimos meaning "muzzle", which I found both highly appropriate and utterly charming. According to the Medical Journal of Australia, phimosis is common in young children but resolves in 99 per cent of cases by age 17. I was in the remaining one per cent.Doctors warned me of the increasing risk of penile cancer as I grew older. There were also risks of urinary retention, urinary tract infections, and sexual dysfunction.The signs weren't good. The older I got, the more my anxiety grew. Finally, at age 23, I could take no more. I decided to face my fears and confront the one word which had struck the fear of God in me for half my life: circumcision. Even the sound of it was like something being brutally incised.I consulted a urologist; he was softly-spoken and kind-eyed. He explained there were risks with the procedure, but that there were with any medical procedure. "It's a little more complicated at your age," he explained, "but it's still fairly straightforward."Reluctantly, I let him book me in. I told my friends that I was having a dental procedure and that they wouldn't see me for a while.Dressing into a paper thin surgical gown on the morning of the operation, I remember thinking, was I really going ahead with this Was it the right thing Was I mad I had friends who had already fathered children. What if something went wrong and I never even got the chance to be with a womanI woke groggy from the anaesthetic. I had to brace myself to look down between my legs. They wouldn't let me leave the hospital until I peed. Two weeks at home in baggy parachute pants followed, ambling around like an ageing cowboy. Sleeping was the worst. Unable to roll onto my side, I woke every hour with agonising muscle spasms, like an axe being plunged between my shoulder blades.And then came the most painful moment of my life so far: the removal of my bandages. The young nurse at the local medical surgery was unlucky enough to perform the procedure. I screamed so loud that I swore I set off car alarms.But then, there I was. All pink and smooth and circular, just like all the other kids. I wanted to find my old schoolmates and tell them - hey, I'm just like you.Regular salt baths facilitated the rest of my healing. But was I functional Losing my virginity not long after was a good sign. Eventually fathering kids of my own was an even better one.Both my children are sons. I wanted to have them circumcised at birth. Fearing something genetic, I hoped for them to avoid my fate. But I had it explained to me that babies weren't really circumcised in Australia any more. After circumcision peaked at more than 80% in the 1950s, 85% of boys now started primary school with their foreskins intact. According to the American Circumcision documentary, circumcision still remains the most common surgery in the US, and America remains the only industrialised country in the world to routinely practice non-religious infant circumcision.To my boys, I hope my condition isn't hereditary.If not, I apologise in advance. But at least now, you've nothing to hide, no shame to feel. You look just like the vast majority of your schoolmates. This is, at least, something more than your dear old dad had.Peter Papathanasiou is a freelance writer.
My Three-year-old Won't Poo in the Toilet. Please Help!
The clinical psychologist advises on the tricky business of toilet training and how to introduce your child to the harsh realities of life. I am looking for advice about my second daughter who has just turned three. I started potty training her in April. She made great progress with her wees. She uses the toilet here and at creche, for her wees, with very few accidents. However, she won't go to the toilet for her poo poos and does them in her pants every day. She'll tell me after, but it is too late. She has no real pattern so I am constantly reminding her to "tell me when the poo poos are coming". I have even offered her a reward if she does it in the toilet but to no avail. Please help.Toilet training is a tricky business! There are several factors that we need consider before even starting to toilet train. Most important is trying to judge our child's readiness.Typically, they need to show interest in their own toileting and the toileting of others. So they might want to follow you into the bathroom to watch you going to the loo, or they may ask questions about things like standing or sitting to wee, poo and so on.In addition they need to be able to independently pull up and down their pants. So make sure they can deal with zips or buttons or clips if they are present on their clothes.It also helps if they have a regular enough rhythm, in terms of pooing particularly, such that the timing of their poos are somewhat habitual. If they are choosing to tell that they are about to poo, or are pooing, that is also a signal that they may be ready to toilet train.Often the strongest indicator, however, is their own interest in using the toilet. When children ask to use the toilet, in preference to using a nappy, then do try to facilitate them! Sometimes, when they have older siblings for example, this can be brought forward by their desire to be like their brothers and sisters.One of the big things that toilet training gives children is the responsibility for minding this new aspect of their personal care. Being more responsible for themselves with their toileting can often herald, or boost, progress in their general development. Children can feel more grown up.For some children, though, this move into a new stage of development can be anxiety provoking. That is why their readiness is so important. Encouraging toilet training too soon can lead to stress and anxiety if they are just not ready to achieve success.Hopefully your daughter has shown some or all of the signs of readiness. Most children do show readiness by three.I think you need to start from first principles with your daughter's poos, as if you had never tried to train her before.So, for a few days just observe her, without reminders, and see if there are certain times of the day when she is more likely to poo than others. Being able to anticipate a poo can sometimes make the process easier.Usually you will find that children poo within an hour or so of eating. Some children poo once a day, some poo more frequently and some poo just once every few days. The range of 'normal' poo habits is quite broad!After you get a sense of her personal habit, you can start a reinforcement programme where she gets rewarded for simply sitting on the toilet ready to poo. The rewards can be small, but engaging for her.Set up two or three times every day when she sits on the loo regardless of her need to use the toilet. Timing this to fit her poo habit increases the likelihood that she will poo during one of those toilet visits. If she does poo she gets a bonus treat and lots of warmth from you.In between the planned toilet trips, don't discuss pooing or ask her if she needs to poo. If you keep asking her, then you take the responsibility away from her of having to regulate her pooing.If she has an accident then be matter of fact about it, help her to clean herself up and help her to rinse her pants, ready for the wash. Don't punish her for poo accidents and try to avoid getting cross.If you can stick with the programme, reduce attention for pooing between toilet trips and stay calm when she has accidents, you should find that she quickly gets into the habit of pooing in the toilet.What is the best way to talk to my nine-year-old daughter about the Syrian refugee crisisWe live in an occasionally cruel and unjust world. A lot of the time we are protected from the cruelty or the injustice. Especially in Ireland, we can be quite insular in our thinking and in our perspective.Sometimes, however, world events are so significant, or so extreme or so intense or so life-threatening, that it is impossible to ignore them.Not only can we not avoid awareness of them ourselves, butwe cannot prevent our children having awareness of them.The Syrian refugee crisis is one such global tragedy. The nature of such dramatic, and traumatic, world events is that the media, in all its forms, will report, discuss and highlight the personal human loss, destruction and degradation that people are suffering.The extent of that media coverage is part of what makes it impossible to avoid. While you may limit your family's exposure to images and reporting on the crisis, your child or children may see or hear things at their friends' houses, in school or even on the bus.At least you have been given forewarning that your daughter's school intends to have a speaker describing their experience of the situation. I presume that the school have allowed all parents an opt-in/opt-out choice.Such a choice allows you to make a decision about your child's sensitivities and capacity to hear, understand and assimilate such potentially distressing information as may be contained in the talk.The key, to my mind, in such situations, is to ensure that we have an opportunity to filter and contextualise the information that our children receive.So, for example, it might help if you and other parents also have an opportunity to hear what the speaker intends to say, or has said to the children. That allows you to decode it, or contextualise it, for your child specifically.As you acknowledge, different children will interpret images and stories in different ways. Naturally, they try to make sense of the information they receive with reference to their previous knowledge or understanding.Part of what we must do then, as parents, in talking about subjects like the refugee crisis, is to expand our children's understanding and give them an appropriate context within which they can make sense of the information they are hearing or seeing all around them.So, we may choose to explain our understanding of why this is happening (such as we ourselves understand the geopolitics involved) and what makes it specific to this nation, at this time and in this way.Clarifying the specific nature of this crisis might reassure some children who would otherwise fear similar disturbance and unrest occurring here.We can also empathise with the human suffering that is happening. It is okay, for example, for our children to know that what is happening is distressing and that such feelings, that they might have, are good natural responses to human tragedy.We may feel tempted to try to insulate or protect our children from such suffering, because of those feelings of distress, but, in truth, it is no harm for children to experience congruent feelings of being upset by upsetting events.Our job, then, is to help them regulate those feelings so that they don't become overwhelmed. By soothing, filtering, explaining and maintaining an openness to talk we give our children the best chance of making sense of what is happening and processing the feelings that go with that understanding.My nine-year-old daughter is a very deep thinker so we have to be careful in how we approach certain topics. Her school have informed us that someone, with direct experience of the Syrian refugee crisis, is coming in to talk with the older classes. I worry about how she might react. I know some children may have seen the photo of poor Aylan Kurdi, for example, but I know that should our daughter see that image, she would be distraught. I don't want my daughter to be ignorant of her world, but I wonder how best to talk about this with herWe live in an occasionally cruel and unjust world.

10 Famous People Who Died on the Toilet
10 Famous People Who Died on the ToiletLet's face it - none of us are getting out of here alive. I'm guessing most of us would prefer to shuffle off this mortal coil with some shred of dignity. Dying on the toilet is not dignified. And yet, many famous people have succumbed in this way. A life of glamour and money...ended in humiliation - it's really rather sad.Medical Reasons for dying on the toiletSo why do people die like this If you are constipated and have to strain to do...what has to be done, it's not just the abdominal muscles that are contracting to help you along the way. The chest muscles also contract which can affect the way the heart beats. If you already have a heart condition, this can prove fatal. If you throw drugs into the mix - and many of these folk did - your heart has even less chance of surviving this exertion.#1 Elvis Presley (1935-1977)Let's start by getting the big one out of the way. Most people know that the King, Elvis Presley, died on the throne...or did heIt's true that Elvis died in his bathroom at Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee on August 16th 1977. The death was recorded by the Coroner as due to Cardiac Arrhythmia. This means that his heart was beating irregularly before it finally stopped. Taking too many prescription drugs can cause this but the Doctors chose to leave out this information. When this unsavoury possibility became known, Elvis' father, Vernon, had the autopsy report sealed and it will stay that way until 2027 - fifty years after Elvis died.In 2009, Dr. George Nicopolous who was Personal Physician to Elvis also seemed keen to turn public opinion away from a drug related demise. In his book 'The King and Dr. Nick' he wrote that when Elvis strained on the toilet, he may have squashed his abdominal aorta, which could have caused his heart to beat irregularly. This might have made his blood pressure fall causing him to fall to the floor. Nicopolous noted that Elvis was face down in a deep pile carpet which he claimed may have caused him to suffocate.The medical investigator stated that Elvis had been using the toilet but had "stumbled or crawled several feet before he died". So whether Elvis did in fact die while seated on the toilet depends on the medical investigator's definition of 'several feet'. Elvis may have passed away while straining and then toppled to the floor - or felt faint and tried to crawl for help. We may never know for sure.Was the cardiac arrhythmia which caused his heart to stop caused by constipation, weight gain or drugs - or a combination of all three We won't know for sure until 2027 and even then, some people will probably believe that he's still alive - but that's another story.#2 Judy Garland (1922-1969)Credit: Garland was probably best known for playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She was hugely successful but her boss at the time - Louis B Mayer, the owner of MGM studios - called her 'my little hunchback' and 'that fat kid'. Not surprisingly, she took the Benzedrine that was given to her to control her weight and ended up with low self esteem. Judy kept on taking the tablets, moving on to Dexedrine and Dexamyl for over 30 years and eventually the drugs and booze killed her.On 15th March 1969, Judy married her fifth husband, Mickey Deans, at Chelsea Register Office in the Kings Road in swinging London. Judy said "This is it. For the first time in my life, I am really happy. Finally, I am loved." Sadly, she wasn't that loved. She'd invited hundreds of celebrities but only fifty of them turned up. Her daughter, Liza Minnelli, who had just turned 23, phoned Judy to say that she couldn't make it but would come to the next one. A journalist who did attend wrote that the wedding was "the saddest and most pathetic party I have ever attended".On the evening of Saturday June 21 1969, Judy was watching television with her husband, at their home in Chelsea. They had an argument which ended when Judy ran out into the street. This wasn't all that unusual and Mickey let her go. At 10.40am the following morning, Mickey took a phone call for Judy and couldn't find her in the house. Realising that the bathroom door was locked, he climbed along a ledge outside so that he could look through the window. Judy was dead on the toilet. At only 47, she died from an overdose of barbiturates.More people made an effort for her funeral than her last wedding. Lauren Bacall, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, James Mason and Lana Turner all showed up. Judy was $4 million in debt and so Frank Sinatra paid for the funeral. He commented "Judy will now have a mystic survival. She was the greatest."As a fitting epitaph, there was a tornado in Kansas on the day that Judy died.#3 King George II (1683 - d 1760)Credit: By the morning of 25th October 1760, the 76 year old King was blind in one eye and his hearing was failing. Nevertheless, he awoke at 6am, as was his usual custom. He drank a cup of hot chocolate and then went to his 'close stool' alone. His valet heard a crash and rushed into the room to find his master dead on the floor. A post mortem (they did those in 1760 - who knew) showed that an aortic aneurysm (a thinning of a very major blood vessel) had ruptured. His death was officially pronounced as having been caused by "over exertions on the privy".He was buried in Westminster Abbey, London on 11 November 1760. Following his instructions, the side of his and his wife's coffins were removed as he wished their 'remains to mingle'. Rather romantic, if a little messy.#4 Edmund II aka "Edmund Ironsides" King of England (980 - 1016)Credit: Edmund reigned from April 23 to November 30, 1016. At this time, England was divided. Edmund reigned over the West and Wessex and Canute had the North and East.It is said that a servant of Edmunds turned traitor to gain a reward from Canute. Edmund had a large house in Gloucestershire. The servant placed a sharpened stake in the King's privy and waited out of sight. When the unsuspecting Edmund came in, the servant extinguished the candle and Edmund sat down, impaling himself of the stake. He was rushed to a nearby Monastery for help but it was too late.The servant went to Canute and admitted to the murder but he didn't get a reward as he'd hoped. Canute had him hanged - allegedly from the highest oak tree that could be found.#5 Lenny Bruce (1925 - 1966)Credit: Lenny Bruce was an American comedian. Before he became famous he served in the American Navy. When he decided he wanted out of that way of life, he dressed in womens' clothing and was given an honourable discharge. This inspired the character of Corporal Klinger in the TV show M*A*S*H.His career as a comedian was chequered. People either hated or loved him. His groundbreaking monologues were laced with multiple profanities and vulgarities and inspired Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks. Bruce was arrested in San Francisco in 1961 for using a profanity banned by the California Obscenity Code. The resulting trial was a landmark to protect freedoms laid out in the First Amendment. Bruce was eventually acquitted but the trial had bankrupted him. Clubs were told their licences would be revoked or they would have to pay a heavy fine if they booked him - so very few did. He had talked himself into being unemployable.He wasn't just arrested for using rude words. He took huge amounts of drugs and was busted many times for possession. He was known to enjoy orgies and to live an immoral life. Eventually and inevitably, it caught up with him. In 1966, he was found dead in his toilet, at his home in the Hollywood hills. His trousers were around his ankles and he still had a tourniquet on his arm. Lenny Bruce was just 40 years old.#6 Don Simpson (1943 - 1996) Film ProducerCredit: Don Simpson had it all. He worked at Warners and by 1981 he was appointed President of Worldwide Production at Paramount. He's probably best known for his pairing with Jerry Bruckheimer, which produced blockbuster films such as Top Gun, Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop and An Officer and a Gentleman.By the time he died, Simpson was worth just over 10 million dollars. That sounds a lot until you learn that his drug habit cost around 600,000 dollars every month. And this had been going on for a long time. When his former boss at Paramount, Michael Eisner was called with the news of Simpson's death, he responded 'I've been waiting for this call for 20 years'.Simpson did try to kick the habit a few times but couldn't finish rehab. Ironically, one of his Doctors Stephen Ammerman, died of a drug overdose in 1995 - in Simpson's pool house. The death is alleged to have finished his partnership with Bruckheimer. Even though Ammerman was dead, there were plenty of other Doctors to fall back on. After Simpson died, Police found 2,200 pills and tablets neatly stored alphabetically in a bedroom cupboard next to the bathroom where Simpson died.In the three years prior to his death, authorities discovered that 15 Doctors and 8 pharmacies had supplied Simpson with around 15,000 various medications. So many drugs - so little time.Simpson he had suffered from irregular heartbeats so badly that Doctors had warned him that he may suffer Sudden Death. Eventually, his body gave out and he died on his toilet, while reading a biography of Oliver Stone. The cause of death was given as a heart attack due to combined drug use. The autopsy found 28 different varieties of drugs in his body.#7 Evelyn Waugh English novelist (1903 - 1966)Credit: Evelyn Waugh is probably best known as the author of Brideshead Revisted which was made into an extremely popular TV series. Remember those scenes of halcyon sun kissed youth and the love that dare not speak its' name between the sublimely pretty Anthony Andrews and an extremely young Jeremy Irons... Waugh had gone through experiences of homosexuality while at Oxford University.Evelyn Waugh also had the distinction of marrying a lady called Evelyn - although the marriage didn't last. She-Evelyn contracted double pneumonia on their honeymoon and He-Evelyn never recovered when his wife committed adultery.As Waugh neared fifty, he suffered from rheumatism, deafness and became manically depressed when he was bored. He took a trip to Ceylon in 1954 in hopes of getting some writing done but was beset by insomnia, which he had suffered with for years. He self medicated with bromide and chloral, followed by a crème de menthe chaser. This caused horrible hallucinations which made him hear voices and drove him mad. On his return, the medical diagnosis was bromide poisoning and once the bromide stopped, so did the voices. The experience took shape in another Waugh classic, The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold.Waugh was an enthusiastic Catholic and on Easter day in 1966 he and members of his family enjoyed mass before returning to his home, Combe Florey in Somerset, England for lunch. Waugh went to the downstairs toilet where his body was discovered shortly afterwards. He had suffered a huge heart attack. #8 Catherine The Great (1729-1796)Credit: Myths abound about the way this Empress of Russia passed away. The most popular myth is that she died while enjoying sexual relations with a horse via an ingenious system of pulleys. While this is an entertaining, if eye-watering thought, it's sadly not true. In Catherine's day, accusing someone of sexual depravity was the quickest way to blacken their reputation. Catherine was known to have had a voracious sexual appetite but none of her paramours were equine.Others have it that she died on the toilet. This is much nearer the truth, but again, not completely true. On November 16th, 1796, Catherine's valet, Zakhar Zotov was not summoned as usual. He went in search of his mistress and found her on the floor of her toilet. Zotov called for help and with two helpers, raised Catherine from the floor. As they did so, she gave a small moan and lapsed into a coma from which she never recovered. She died the following day. So although she died in her bed, she took her last waking breath in her water closet. So, she is included in this list with a little artistic licence and to debunk a myth.#9 Lupe Velez (1908 - 1944) Mexican film actress.Credit: Image: Lupe was one of the first actresses from Mexico to make it in Hollywood. She got her big break at the age of 19 when Douglas Fairbanks hired her to be in his new film The Gaucho and signed her up for five years with his studio. He also had an affair with her which put the lid on his legendary pairing with Mary Pickford.You may never have heard of Lupe but she did hang out with some very famous people. She had liaisons with Clark Gable, Charlie Chaplin, Jack Dempsey, Jimmy Durante and Errol Flynn. There was also an affair with Gary Cooper which was so volatile and tempestuous that he had a nervous breakdown during their relationship. Despite this, he managed to have an affair with Marlene Dietrich at the same time. As an exhausted Cooper got onto a train to leave for Chicago, Lupe turned up and tried to shoot him - several times. Luckily for both of them, she missed. She went on to have a volatile on/off five year marriage with Johnny Weissmuller (of Tarzan fame) which finally hit the rocks in 1939. Somehow, the unpredictable actress still found the time to star in nearly fifty films.Some five years later, Vélez hooked up with little known actor Harald Maresch and became pregnant. To her dismay he wouldn't marry her. Lupe was a Catholic and was now in a terrible situation. She couldn't abort the child and couldn't bear the humiliation of an illegitimate child. She decided to end it all but in a glamorous way befitting her stardom. She wrote a note to Harald"To Harald: May God forgive you and forgive me, too; but I prefer to take my life away and our baby's, before I bring him with shame, or killin'(sic)him.Lupe."and then prepared her huge bedroom with hundreds of flowers and candles which reflected back from the mirrored walls of her thirty foot bedroom. She dressed in blue satin pyjamas and took seventy five Seconal tablets and lay down to die. She awoke shortly afterwards and staggered to her equally glamorous onyx bathroom to be sick.Here, accounts of her death vary. Some say that as she leaned over the toilet to be sick, she slipped - breaking her neck and drowning. Others have it that she was found by the woman who had been her friend and secretary for the last ten years, Beulah Kinder. Maybe there is truth in both - Beulah could have found her and somehow got her mistress onto the bed to avoid embarrassment...but we will never know. 'The Mexican Spitfire' had blazed her way through life and was dead at just 36.#10 Michael Anderson GodwinCredit: In 1978, Michael Anderson Godwin was in prison for robbery. While out on work release, he committed a sexual assault and murder and was duly sentenced to the Electric Chair. However, in 1981, he was found not guilty of the sexual assault and his death penalty was reduced to life imprisonment.That same year, Godwin was in his cell at The Central Correctional Institution in Columbia. Prisoners were allowed a small TV but no speakers - to avoid annoying fellow internees. Ear-phones were allowed but Godwin's had stopped working. He tried to mend them but didn't have any tools. He decided to strip the insulation off the wired with his teeth (you can see where this is going...). For reasons best known to himself, Godwin was sitting naked on a metal toilet at the time. As he plugged the wires into a terminal in the back of the TV, Godwin was electrocuted.And that wasn't a one off. Laurence Baker of Philadelphia had been sentenced to death for fatally shooting Robert Limerick on Christmas Day 1979. In 1986 the Supreme Court overturned the death sentence, reducing it to life imprisonment. Ten years later, Baker rigged up a pair of homemade headphones to watch TV. Just like Godwin, he was sitting on a metal toilet and was electrocuted.The King and Dr. Nick: What Really Happened to Elvis and MeAmazon Price: $24.99 $8.52 Buy Now(price as of Mar 22, 2014)The Wizard of Oz (Two-Disc 70th Anniversary Edition)Amazon Price: $14.29 Buy Now(price as of Mar 22, 2014)
Over the Toilet Cabinet Ideas and Inspiration
The bathroom can be one of the most difficult rooms in a home to decorate and furnish. Often the space is confined, which means if you make a big mistake in the design and layout of your essential fittings, then that mistake will stick out like a sore thumb. That rarely happens, but bathroom furniture can also look out of place if you make a careless choice; in a small space that mistake looks worse than say in a large living where the space minimizes the visual effect of such a mistake.One safe option for the bathroom is the over the toilet cabinet. As these modern storage conveniences, which some call over toilet space savers, are made to fit standard size toilets, you should at least be sure of getting a cabinet which fits snugly and not stick out like that sore thumb. The only way you can really go wrong is to choose a wood finish that conflicts with existing furniture, and you are unlikely to make such a mistake...aren't you?The range of over the toilet cabinets available in the marketplace is quite wide, so it is worth spending a fair bit of time in your search. Fortunately they are available in all the popular wood finishes of the contemporary bathroom, so finding a good match for any existing bathroom furniture is almost assured if you have the patience. Finishes such as beech, walnut, Espresso, pine, teak and others can all be found in over the toilet cabinets, both online and in local stores. If you prefer a metal frame for the stand that supports the cabinet, then again modern favorites such as chrome, nickel and stainless steel are also available.Once you know what it is you want to store in your new bathroom cabinet, now and in the future, then you have two other important decisions to make. How tall do you want the over toilet storage unit to be, and how many open shelves do you want. It is worth bearing in mind that if you get a short unit and then find it is insufficient, it will not be possible to extend it upwards. So perhaps it is best to play safe for the future and get a cabinet unit that extends close to the ceiling. That way your over the toilet space will be fully utilized.

The reason is very simple because they are glued to mobiles and in most of the cases they spend time playing games. The gaming fever among kids is a root cause of health-related problems. A boy of ten had come into her surgery with a deformation so severe that at first, she believed it was a tumor, said Jo Begent, a pediatric consultant.However, in the further examination, it was revealed that the child had developed a dilated bowel because he had stopped himself from going to the toilet so he could carry on gaming. The boy was playing World of Warcraft, Call of Duty and FIFA for eight hours at a time, Dr. Begent said. Dr. Begent, who practices at University College London Hospital, said: 'I was doing my general paediatric clinic one day and a boy walked in, a ten-year-old limping and looking really poorly.While addressing the annual conference of the NSPCC, Dr Begent said that social media and gaming is affecting the physical and mental health of youngsters. She warned the people in the conference to keep a look on their children because the issue had 'crept up on us', with an exponential rise of cases in recent years. She also emphasised on the point that children should have proper sleep or else their hormones might be affected. In cases of young girls, she said that, 'Hormonal pubertal development can be affected if they are low weight. And indeed obesity can affect pre-pubescent development as well, if you are very obese you can get polycystic ovaries - that might affect your periods. '.A partial list of times Snopes flushed its credibility down the toilet.Snopes used to be a credible website back when they were mainly interested in dispelling stupid claims made in chain emails that boomers used to send each other in the early '00s.Give something a label of "false", but then the actual article goes on to say "well, it's actually true, but here's why your opinion about that is wrong."When something is patently true (or false) that hurts the narrative, fact check some immaterial thing tangential to it instead. Just say "we could not find any evidence that this happened," but not acknowledge the evidence that actually exists.They reported on Andy Ngo's "claim" that he was violently beaten under the implication that the claim had no basis, but ignored that there was a video of it happening.They could not bring themselves to call the "immigrants are animals" hoax as "false", even though they admit in the article that he never said that. So instead they found a variant of the hoax that brought up Hitler, and then labeled it a "Mixture" instead on the basis that, even though it had nothing whatsoever to do with Trump, Hitler called people animals, so that part of the hoax was "true".They tried to debunk the claim that George Soros assisted in the confiscation of property from the Jews in WWII. Except they provide the video where he admits to doing exactly that, and then make every mental gymnastic in the world to try and claim that that's not really what he said. Then, for good measure, they lump the real video in with a fake photo of him in an SS uniform3 supply chain leaders on the toilet paper fiasco, predicting demand, and sustainable e-commerce packagingPeter Evans: So our five-year plan was almost the same, but a little bit slower than the way we've progressed in the past year.

How to Change the Toilet Paper Roll
With this instructable, I hope to show those people who seem to be toilet-paper-roll-changing-challenged a way that they, too, can easily change the toilet paper roll. Now, when you go to wipe after using the bathroom and there's no paper on the roll, that is an indication that there is no toilet paper. Normally, you would find a roll (maybe) and just lay it on the back of the stool or put it on the floor or put it on a counter. What we're going to teach you today is HOW TO LOAD THE TOILET ROLL PAPER HOLDER all by yourself!!!You may be wondering to yourself, "How will I know for sure that there's no toilet paper?" The answer is that there will be a carboard tube on the holder with no toilet paper attached. You can be assured that there is no toilet paper there. This is what it will look like when the roll is empty. If it looks like this, then proceed to the next step!The thing that holds most toilet paper rolls on the toilet roll paper holder is a wonderful invention that uses a spring mechanism. If you push in on the ends of the toilet roll paper holder, you will find that it contracts in size--it's kind of like MAGIC. This can be kind of tricky, so make sure you follow along here. Along the edge of the empty roll, you will find the place where the spring mechanism meets the solid part that is connected to the wall or cabinet or what have you. You simply pinch the spring mechanism with two of your fingers and push in. This should release the spring mechanism from the solid holder, effectively freeing the empty cardboard tube. (See picture.)The next part is apparently quite difficult, too, so bear with me. Find the nearest trash can or recycle bin and toss the empty cardboard container in there. (Again, see picture.)There are two schools of thought on toilet paper rolls. One is that the toilet paper should come over the TOP of the roll. This gives you space between the paper and the wall and makes it easy to grab the edge of the paper. Most hotels use this method (they also use a nifty "folding" method, which I would be willing to do on another instructable once everyone can get this one figured out.)The other school of thought is that the paper should come down the back side of the roll, lying flat against the wall or back surface. This is particularly popular with people who don't like their toilet paper to get in the way of bathroom decor. It can occasionally be helpful in deterring toddlers who find unrolling the toilet paper to be a pasttime. Once you've determined the direction you want your toilet paper to be, you simply push in the spring mechanism again, put one side in the solid holder while maintaining slight pressure on the other side to keep the mechanism contracted. With the side still contracted, push that side in place into the holder. Release your finger and VOILA!! You've re-installed a fresh roll of toilet paper all by yourself. Now go grab your wife, girlfriend, roommate, friend or whomever and tell them about this great feat you've achieved. You should probably go find the remote control, now.There it is!! You did it! If I was anyone else, I'd probably give you a trophy. Now you don't have to wait for the housecleaning elves to do this for you anymore!!! Hurray!
