This is something we all need to know!

Many of us genuinely enjoy those few minutes each day, but did you know there is a method for getting “the perfect poo”?
Yes, using the lavatory should be as easy as putting your bottom on the toilet seat and going.
Actually, no, a pelvic floor specialist explains.
A pelvic floor physiotherapist by the name of George demonstrates how to have a “perfect poo” in a video that was posted to TikTok.
George demonstrated how to take the ideal crap while substituting a chair for the toilet seat and adding captions to the video to guide the audience.
To start with, the pelvic floor expert wrote: “Feet up on a squatty potty/bin/toilet paper.”
She then told viewers to ‘relax’ their belly while lengthening their pelvic floor.
Poop-goers are then urged to do some pelvic circles, and George advised those who felt they still needed to go or still needed to finish their business to commit to a stand-up-sit-down pattern.
The last piece of advice George offers is to “always respond”—that is, go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to urinate.
Pretty basic, yes?
George is the person you should be contacting if you need any additional toilet advice.
She covered all you need to know about the number of wipes you should use on the toilet in another TikTok video.
The physiotherapist said: “When you are wiping more than two or three times, that is called faecal smearing.
“So it is essentially when too much faecal matter stays at the entrance of the anus even after you have finished your poo.”
Therefore, even after you finish, there is still too much poop near the entrance. That clear?
However, there is a technique that you can also use to minimise the amount of wiping necessary.
George explained: “A technique that you can use to reduce the number of times you wipe is by squeezing your pelvic floor in a waterfall formation.
“So start by squeezing the anus 20 percent, then 50 percent, 80 percent, and 100 percent, so that you have squeezed it four times at the end of your poo.”
She continued: “This can help close off the anus sphincter, which is the reason you are having little bits of stool hanging on the entrance – it is usually from weakness from that external sphincter.”
Remember this next time you are on the toilet, eh?
Woman Who Eats Toilet Paper Every Day Says It’s The Perfect Snack
cigarettes, booze, casinos, and chocolate. When one thinks of addiction, these are the first things that come to mind. However, one woman has been making headlines throughout the world for her relatively unknown obsession: chewing toilet paper.
The woman behind the headlines is Kinah Moore, who has acknowledged consuming up to two entire toilet rolls virtually every day. Occasionally eating up to four.
The woman explained how much paper she uses during her appearance on This Morning on Monday. She said: “I get my thousand sheets and sometimes I glance up and I’ll be two or three rolls in and that’s from eight in the morning until seven in the evening and I’m just chewing. It is quite addictive at times.
Kinah also revealed that she suffers from Pica, an eating problem that causes sufferers to consume things like plastic, paper, soap, and other non-nutritional items.
“It began when I was about eight years old. It started off with things like baking soda or like baking powder and then one day, I don’t know what possessed me to try toilet paper, but I tried toilet paper, and it was just my thing. I just knew it was my thing.
“There was something about the texture. You know like, the baking soda dissolved too fast, baking powder was too fizzy, and the toilet paper’s just like… it sticks. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. It just stuck with me.”
Kinah continued: “I believe it was a craving because I used to crave a bunch of different things. My great grandmother actually used to eat flour. So… I dunno. It was just a craving that I had and everything else dissolved too fast but the toilet paper was like, the cotton candy that doesn’t melt. It was like perfect.”
Kinah added that her sister and her mother both enjoy eating peculiar ‘foods(?)’ however she has it ‘worst’. She also claimed there have been no negative effects to her health and urged people to ‘try it’ reinforcing that ‘it does taste really good’. Hmmm.
While Kinah insists that her health is in good condition, This Morning’s Doctor Sara urged viewers not to feast on toilet paper saying that the condition which Kinah has, Pica, can be harmful and toxic.
Doctor Sara said: “In terms of toilet paper and paper, that’s known as xylophagia, and the problem with toilet paper is that it’s not easily digested by our bodies and can cause blockages in our digestive tracts, it can lead to stomach pains, blood in your stool, vomiting, constipation, and in severe cases it can even require surgical intervention.”
Despite Dr Sara’s pretty intense warning, the hosts then went back to Kinah saying that she looks like she is ‘glowing’.
In case you were still wondering: do not eat toilet paper.
Vacuum Took Images Of Woman On Toilet That Ended Up On Facebook
The CEO of Roomba makers iRobot, Colin Angle, has emphasized that the company is “terminating its relationship with the service provider who leaked the images.”
A young woman was filmed while using the bathroom by a filthy robot vacuum cleaner, and the pictures eventually emerged on Facebook.
This month, information about the frightening data leak from iRobot’s new Roomba J7 series robot vacuum first surfaced.
In order to train artificial intelligence systems, audio, photo, and video data from a test version of the household device’s camera was captured and sent to Scale AI, a company that recruits people from all around the world to tag the data.
According to MIT Technology Review, 15 of those pictures allegedly made their way from there onto private message boards frequented by Venezuelan IT specialists.
The autonomous hoover cleaner’s creator, iRobot, acknowledged that their technology has already taken images in 2020.
They made a point of stating that the pictures were taken by “special development robots with hardware and software modifications that are not and never have been present on iRobot consumer products for purchase.”
They claimed that the machines had been distributed to “paid collectors and employees” who had signed official contracts authorising the business to use any data acquired by the Roombas, including video, for training reasons.
According to the business, the 15 photos that ended up on Facebook were among the two million images shared with Scale AI.
The unique test devices had been marked with labels that made it apparent video shooting was taking place, and the test subjects were advised to “remove anything they deem sensitive from any location the robot operates in, including children,” the company stated.
On the other hand, the company declined to make any of the product testers available for an interview or to give copies of the inked contracts when asked.
Colin Angle, CEO of iRobot, has said that the company is “terminating its relationship with the service provider who leaked the images, is actively investigating the matter, and [is] taking measures to help prevent a similar leak by any service provider in the future”.
Dennis Giese, a data security expert from Boston’s Northeastern University, specializes in protecting home appliances like Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant. He claims that robotic vacuums like the Roomba are especially dangerous since “you have no way to control that they can drive around in your home.”
