What (allegedly) happened on the space station the recently sprung a leak.

I wonder if it's true.

On the one hand, plausible.

On the other hand, this is the Russian side of the story and you know how they are.

Quite a stretch… :roll:

From your link I extract this:
New gender-neutral toilets take much more space, they aren’t specially clean because men miss the bowl quite often, and they are much more time-consuming.
Like, apparently, the writer, I never visited a ladies' room. But an ex-friend of mine, who worked as a barmaid for a time, told me with quite some emphasis that the female commodities always called for much more cleaning up than the gents' territory.

All is myth. :mrgreen:

You'll have to wait a bit before women can be pictured in such an unpleasant role.

And as underground dilapidated concrete is immediately available and way cheaper than a space-station mock-up, it would be recast as another boring dystopian adventure by Hollywood. "The doom of the loo"? :mrgreen:

Had to stop reading here:

"but stopping him (Kavanaugh) for allegedly trying to lay a girl while in high school is completely insane. "

What fucking nonsense from this jerk.

That started bad and then just got worse and worse. Just when I think I've found the douchiest part, it managed to go deeper down the rabbit hole. I didn't even make it through either.

Not definitive, but the tale linked in the OP just got more plausible.

Well, it's a drilled hole, small wonder it's "deliberate".

But if it had been drilled from the outside, then!… :o

The whole thing makes me think of JK's Enviro-Commie foam.
