[forbes.com...]

A new study suggests that severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) may have been spread through the simple act of flushing a toilet instead of being passed directly from person to person.

That is why we never heard of SARS infected bears.

Sorry! :)

Apparently flushing the toilet after going number one won't throw the virus into the air. :)

Paradigm shift for the old adage:

"If it's brown, don't flush it down. If it's yellow, be mellow."

Kinda defeats the purpose of indoor plumbing, doesn't it? ;)

Now they'll come up with anti-viral disposable plastic toilet wraps you're supposed to seal over the bowl before you flush... Which would be even creepier than the auto-dispensing toilet seat covers in Chicago-O'Hare airport.

>>what about the rabbits?

I heard some rabbits mutated to porcupines. This mutation stopped when we humans introduced the charmin bear [charmin.com] in the wild.

We already have something that looks like a toilet and sucks up any virus. It's called Windows. :)

I'm sure the guy in the apartment below would also have appreciated the peace and calm of a no flusher! As told in the legendary Internet story about the 3 flusher Loser [geocities.com].

(Of course, the guy with the real problem is the one who wrote the story, I mean get a life for Christ's sake).

I'm thinking that were I ever to open up an apartment building I'd have see-through pipes leading through the whole building in every room, so everyone's knowin' when someone's goin'.
