Rats can climb into your toilet and we know how.

Welp, just plan on holding it for the rest of your life.



National Geographic decided to make everyone feel even less safe by writing up a long piece, complete with video, on how exactly rats can scale up your pipes and pop into your toilet. Sadists over there, every one of them.

Rats' superpowers are near-mythical: They can swim for three days. They can fit through holes the size of a quarter. They've even been said to have no solid bones, just cartilage (definitely false, and I can't confirm whether they can collapse their ribcages). I looked to science for the truth. But I was surprised by the dearth of studies on the Norway rat—the common city rat, Rattus norvegicus—in the wild (the wild in this case being any city on Earth). Despite our long human history with lab rats, we know very little about the lives of the rats in our homes.

..."If it doesn't have food and water, it goes into this kind of 'crazy mode,'" ['Rat King' Robert] Corrigan said. Rats have a very low tolerance for hunger—so to get rid of them simply ask where they're getting food and eliminate the source.

Corrigan said... it does make it easier for rats to get into toilets. As if to make the point, the day after we capped our toilet pipe, a rat popped up in my next-door neighbor's toilet.

Plus, toilet drainage turns out to be a boon for sewer rats. "Lots of food gets flushed," Corrigan pointed out.



Yep, you can't think of the toilet as a safe throne. Think of it more of a rat dimensional portal.



They even put together a frighteningly descriptive video on just exactly a rat can make its little way up to the commode and into your nightmares.



Here's a TL;DW gif:



We apologize for stripping you of further illusions of comfort. Blame the rats.

Come for the delicious wings and beer, stay for the violation of your privacy!

A comedian named Tamale Rocks was performing at a bar in Chicago called Cigars and Stripes, when she noticed something strange in the women’s bathroom.

There was a full length mirror opposite the toilet, which upon further investigation, turned out to actually be a two-way mirror allowing anyone to secretly watch you pee while hiding in a supply closet on the other side.

After the video was posted online, Jezebel contacted the bar’s owner Ronnie Lotz, to inquire about the mirror, and his response to whole thing is absolutely insane.

You need to read the entire thing.

“I will burn this fucking place to the ground before I get rid of that mirror,” he said. “Do you know how much joy that mirror has brought to us?”

He says the bar also used to hang a witch’s head in the supply closet to scare women. And throughout their conversation, he repeatedly mentions his chicken wings.

“We specialize in making people feel very uncomfortable,” he added.

Mission accomplished.

The bar has since promoted Jezebel’s article on their own Facebook page.

NBC News reports that an American Airlines flight from San Francisco to New York was required to make an emergency landing in Kansas City on Sunday because one of the 215 passengers found a strange device taped to the ventilation system inside one of the bathrooms on the plane. Originally thought to possibly be an explosive device, what then appeared to be a flash drive turned out to be a small camera disguised as a flash drive. The FBI is currently investigating who the sneaky camera belongs to.
