The bathrooms at work have very powerful flushers. It’s like a jet of water shooting down that hole. The water doesn’t do the normal swirl pattern like it does in residential bathrooms. The water and toilet contents are shot through the bottom of the toilet at a remarkable speed. But the weird thing is that my poops sometimes lodge themselves sideways across the mouth of the hole. You’d think the pressure from the suction would break the poop in half, but no. My poops don’t break. The only way the poop will go down is if it goes down lengthwise. That’s the downfall of the power flush toilet: It doesn’t give the toilet bowl contents a chance to swirl around and get into a nice vertical formation.
