"people aged three to 53 end up in Chicago hospital burns ward after trying the 'boiling water challenge' during polar vortex"

:idea: Ultimately, such challenges determine the mental capacity of those who accept the challenge,
especially their ability to evaluate personal risk. With this challenge, even exposing skin
to extremely low temperature invites serious frostbite.

As for eat-all-you-can (or whatever stuff) challenges ...
How is this athletic competition :?: :!: :roll:

:scratch: Eating a large - even "decadent" - dessert after a great meal seems illogical ...
since the meal and dessert effectively compete (with caloric/nutritional downside). ;)

This research suggests that deciding on dessert before the meal causes better meal choices.
LOL: So, a decadent dessert can complement the nutrition of a well-selected meal :?: :!:

"These technologies are defined by their ability to offer sexual experiences that are intense, immersive and do not depend on a human partner."

:idea: So, the next step is the pill (or whatever) that convinces you that you had the sexual experience of your desire ...
without anything having occurred! Imagine the savings of time, energy, and cost (drinks, dancing, dinner, etc.) :!:
And a makeup kit to paint on your perceived satisfaction would be complementary "show and tell". ;)

Re: https://stephanl.bhhsnv.com/ListingDeta ... 9/2059923/

"This unique 14,620 sqft concrete & steel doomsday bunker was designed to survive cataclysmic events in comfort. The Bunker looks like a large home in a yard with pool, spa, trees, guest house, BBQ & fountain and is surrounded by 500 linear feet of floor to ceiling murals of city & mountain views with lighting that simulates day, dusk, & dawn."

:idea: Contrasting this surrealism is that life will be quite different after - and during - a "cataclysmic event" ... whether protected by bunker or not. Most likely, supplies and more people will be needed to simply survive after the relatively few days "in comfort". :roll:

"According to the law in the US, if you have consented to having sex, the law considers that to be consent
for the consequences thereof, including at least 18 years of child support payments." :o

:idea: Apparently, a notarized Pre-Foreplay Agreement may be needed before the deposit.
Speaking of "deposit", don't forget that your poop has identifying DNA ... ;)
(maybe your doggie will share its pickup bags). :finger:

"a toilet and bathtub in the kitchen of a 200-square-foot apartment" :roll

However ... https://www.businessinsider.com/flushin ... rms-2016-3

"When you flush a toilet, the swirling water that removes your waste from the bowl
also mixes with small particles of that waste, shooting aerosolized feces into the air." :shock:

:scratch: Who can tell :?: Some recipes being prepared might benefit :!:

Besides, you can sublet the bed* while you sleep in the tub
... with a curtain defining your "bedroom" ... :roll:
and optional curtain defining "bathroom".

* Perhaps $50 per night with breakfast in bed ...
or wherever you're parked in the 200-square feet. ;)

Hi Rod,

EYOUUU!!!! I cannot fathom the thinking of a bathroom kitchen combo! ..or even worse renting it!
By golly, our toilet lid will be down upon flushing in this house from here on! :shock:

So I m wondering with this information if an outhouse may actually be more sanitary? Not sure I want to go there... LOL on any level...
love,
Sandy

For modern city dwellers, the tub could be replaced by a shower, leaving room for a breakfast nook
... where a visual one-way shower curtain could provide supervisory/entertainment benefit. :finger:
(increase the rent since this will be a popular rental unit for dating singles) :roll:

Note: Benefit is for the bather - not kitchen staff. ;)
(don't reverse the curtain when it's installed)
