My whole life has been a lie.
This is the most awkwardly informative advertisement I’ve ever seen.
Are we talking about bathroom stuff? Okay, I can talk about bathroom stuff.
I’m just going to say that this is probably all well and good for pooping, but I hate it when women squat to pee in public bathrooms (whether because they don’t like shared toilet seats or whatever) because then the seats, well, tend to end up on the messy side, so you end up with all the disadvantages of a coed bathroom and none of the advantages.
Also I have a pet peeve when people say stuff about certain health problems being a product of modern civilization because yes, while our environment is different, guess what! so are methods of diagnosis. More people being diagnosed with something now than historically might mean that more people have it, but it also might just mean that historically, no one knew.
I think when they talk about squatting, they mean to still sit on the toilet seat, but to lift your feet up. So more like the “sitting on your haunches” position than the “do twenty squats for fitness” position.
Um. That’s just an NPR article. Not an explanatory photo.
(Oh wait, it shows this at 2:31. Yup I watched the pooping video. My life is small.)
