This Guy Was Putting In a New Toilet When He Suddenly Discovered a Secret That Hadn’t Been Seen For Over a Century!

For years Luciano Faggiano had dreamed of opening his own trattoria. He had planned out everything to make the family restaurant possible and knew exactly what he wanted to include on the menu. The trattoria would be run out of his family home located at 56 Via Ascanio Grandi in Lecce, Italy, with the dining room on the ground floor and his family living quarters on the second floor.

Luciano had everything ready to go but one problem stood in his way, a leaky toilet that kept backing up. If he was going to serve delicious homemade food, he couldn’t have sewage stinking up the place and so he had to get it fixed right away. Luckily his two sons who were normally at college were home and so he had them help with the repairs.

The father son team started by slowly chipping away at the flooring to get to what they suspected was a leaky pipe. That’s when they noticed that there was a false bottom and what actually lay underneath was an open space. The smaller of the two boys was able to squeeze into the hole and what he found down there in the dark was a whole other extraordinary world.

It turned out that the Faggiano’s had found passageways and chambers that were abandoned, forgotten, and left dormant long ago. They set about excavating the underground tunnels which turned out to be a lot of work that required the removal of tons of dirt. When a suspicious neighbor noticed that an alarming amount of dirt was being brought out of the family home, they called the authorities who sent over an inspector.

When they found out what was going on, they charged Luciano with conducting an illegal excavation. While he was found guilty, he luckily escaped having to pay major fines. Any and all excavation work was ordered stopped by the courts until they decided on how to proceed. Luciano had still not found the leaky pipe and so he couldn’t open his trattoria, but now he was focused on finding out what lay beneath his home.

Finally a decision had been reached and the court said he could continue digging but only with a member of the Italian Ministry of Culture present. That way if anything of historical significance was found, it could be properly examined and preserved. Luciano got back to work and was busy trying to find the pesky pipe that was still leaking when he stumbled upon some old pavement. According to the expert on hand, it dated back to the medieval period, yet a little further searching led them to an even bigger discovery.

The Faggiano’s ended up in a Mesopotamian tomb which dated back 500 years before Christ! Further exploration uncovered a Roman granary, a Franciscan chapel, and artworks from the Knights Templar. All these amazing discoveries gave Luciano a new business idea, instead of an Italian trattoria, he’d turn his home into a museum. However, once again the authorities put a halt to his plans.

After the local government seized the best artifacts found under the house, they allowed him to open his museum. Today it is called the Museum Faggiano and anyone can visit the underground rooms and passageways to see Italian history through the ages.

This Is The Strange Reason Why Public Toilet Seats Are Shaped Like A U!

Public vs. private toilette seats. What’s the difference? It’s something you have seen countless times before, but probably haven’t thought much about. The fact of the matter is that toilette seats are shaped differently depending on where they are found.

Public restrooms feature horseshoe shaped seats with an open gap in the front. In contrast, private residential seats, like the one in your house, are more oval or rounded in shape. They also lack a front gap and instead wrap completely all the way around.

It’s a subtle, yet glaringly obvious, difference and there are reasons for it. If you haven’t learned anything new today, this should satisfy that gap. The distinctive two-prong open front public toilette seat is required by law and is based on a code that many of the U.S public authorities have adopted and enforced.

The original code was set out in the American Standard National Plumbing Code back in the mid 50s. Since then other professional plumbing associations, like the IAPMO, International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, have included it in their own uniform plumbing codes.

They set the universal standards for plumbing and when local or state governments adopt the code it becomes enforceable by law. An common example is California’s plumbing code which reads, “All water closet seats, except those within dwelling units, shall be either of the open front type or have an automatic seat cover dispenser.”

In addition to uniform legal standard requirements, the seats also contribute to the general public’s health and wellness. The open front design is there to make it easier for women to wipe. Lynne Simnick, the senior vice president of code development at IAPMO, claims that the front gap is to “allow women to wipe the perineal area after using the toilette without contacting the seat.”

Furthermore, she also says this helps men because it “eliminates an area that could be contaminated with urine…[and] eliminates the user’s genital contact with the seat.” Thus, the gap minimizes the main areas where you’re most likely to come into contact with the seat and makes it possible for men and women to use the toilette in the most hygienic and comfortable way possible.

It’s worth noting that public restrooms that don’t have two-pronged open front seats can still be in compliance with the code if they have automatic seat cover dispensers. If both are lacking, then the restroom you’re in may not be up to code, but it also depends on where it’s located.

Now you know the reason for the difference between public and private toilette seats, so mind the gap!

He Pours A Bottle Of Vinegar Into The Toilet. The Reason Is Totally Brilliant!

Hard stains on bathroom surfaces are caused by hard water and can be very hard to remove. The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals, such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium. These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the unsightly mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind, which over time gradually build up on stuff. Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need a strong chemical cleaner to effectively get rid of them.

Instead, there is a very simple way to go about cleaning hard stains off of a toilette. You don’t need harsh, pricey chemical cleaners or tons of muscle power to brighten up the commode. So go ahead and grab yourself a roll of paper towels, a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and a pair of rubber gloves.

What to do is simple and will take less than 5 minutes. Pour some vinegar onto squares of paper towels so they are thoroughly soaked. Fold them up and place them all around the rim of the toilet, making sure to cover all the stains. Stick them to the inside bowl as well as close to the water line as you can without them touching the water. Then, fill the bowl with vinegar until it is above the stains.

Let this all sit for a few hours while the vinegar works its magic. Remove the paper towels from the rim and bowl and scrub away any remaining stains. Make certain to fish out any paper towels from the water and do not flush them because they easily clog septic systems due to their thickness and absorbency. That’s it!

This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean a stained toilette that requires minimal effort or exertion on your part. Try it yourself the next time you clean house!

The Reason Why You Shouldn’t Cover The Toilet Seat With Toilet Paper In A Public Bathroom

Should I hover or cover? That’s the question that runs through most peoples minds when they enter a public restroom stall. After all, the thought of sitting on a public toilet is anything but pleasant and the entire room is crawling with a bunch of complete strangers bacteria and germs. While no one ever really wants to use a public bathroom, sometimes it’s inevitable. When you gotta go, you gotta go!

If you’re among the millions of people who tear off a bunch of toilet paper and lays the sheets down on the seat to form a protective layer, you’re doing it wrong! In fact, you’re better off not putting anything down on the seat at all, whether it be toilet paper or one of those handy paper seat covers found in many bathroom stalls. It may sound contrary to popular belief, but you’re actually exposing your body to even more germs and bacteria when you line the seat with paper.

As humble as they appear to be, toilet seats have been specially designed to repel against bacteria. The way they are shaped and the overall smoothness of the seats make it difficult for germs to latch onto them. In comparison, toilet paper has a rougher texture and is designed to absorb stuff, making it the perfect place for bacteria to stick to. Plus, every time the toilet gets flushed a ton of nasty germs get spread around and fly through the air. Lots of those end up on the toilet paper roll, so when you place it on the seat you’re sitting down right on top of them!

In addition, our skin provides enough protection to keep our bodies safe from whatever is lurking in and around the toilet. It’s our own natural barrier that protects us from micro-organisms and besides that, much of the bacteria found on seats is already present on our bodies. Furthermore, studies have found that the average public toilet seat is cleaner than most people’s kitchen sinks, cutting boards, and dish sponges! If that doesn’t put it all into perspective, nothing else will.

Finally, the number one best thing you can do to avoid germs and bacteria is to wash your hands thoroughly after using the loo. That means running them under hot or warm water, lathering up with soap, and rubbing them together for at least 20 seconds. Focus on the areas in-between fingers and under nails, then rinse off the soap and dry them off. Avoid electric hand dryers if it’s possible, all they do is blow germs on your freshly cleaned hands, and opt for paper towels instead if they’re available. Also, try not to touch the door or handle when exiting. If it’s a push door use your hip, foot, or some other covered body part to open it.

In the end, hovering is the best way to go about using a public toilet. It’s much cleaner and more effective than using a toilet paper barrier and you get a mini-workout in the process. You also get to keep your peace of mind, so squatting is the way to go!
