  1. Before he found his way into the music industry, Ozzy Osbourne was a plumber’s apprentice. He probably dealt well with removing bats from people’s houses too.
  2. Contrary to popular belief, water does NOT always flush the opposite way in the Southern Hemisphere! In fact, it can flush either way in any hemisphere.
  3. Three out of four people put the toilet paper roll flap to the front rather than the back. Families fight never ending wars about this topic.
  4. There are two different types of plunger designs: one with a flat, broad head for sinks and showers, and one with a narrow head for toilets. Confusing them can be problematic.
  5. Samples of sewers have shown that the medicines humans consume lead to fish getting exposed to a lot of things of which some end up in us again because of the food chain, such as caffeine, anti-depressants and more.
  6. If you laid out all of the copper piping that has been installed in the United States since 1963, it would go around the world 200 times!
  7. King George the II of Great Britain passed away after he fell off the toilet on October 25, 1760.
  8. Thirty-eight percent of total water usage in the United States is attributed to flushing the toilet! We are unsure what that says about body hygiene.
  9. Albert Einstein was honorarily inducted into the Chicago Local 130 Plumbers Union after a comment he made, stating that if he had to make a choice of career all over again, he “would rather be a plumber.”
  10. Don’t feel bad for taking a five-minute bathroom break. Over the course of a lifetime, the average human will spend about three years total in the bathroom!
  11. With enough money to call a plumbing professional, Oprah Winfrey caused a media outcry when she was photographed fixing a toilet.
  12. An Instagram account called Toilets Of Boston ranked the city’s restaurant (and occasional spa or tourist attraction) bathrooms on a five-point scale. The scale accounted for cleanliness, ambiance, and utilities.
