the video above has been circulating on the internet for at least a few days now. the guys behind it, buff dudes, seem to pretty nice. also, they’re funny without being complete assholes.
while we’re on the topic of asses, I would like to mention something not specifically gym-related. in the fancy gym this morning, it was obvious that not everyone has grasped the basics of hygiene. in one of the bathrooms (yes, there are real rooms, not just stalls) someone had made a huge deposit. this someone had not, however, closed the toilet before flushing. following this lack of action, the whole room is now contaminated with this persons faeces (or particles from it).
me writing this has nothing to do with the ”seat up or down” argument, which is something small children seem to bicker about on the internet. rather, it is about basic hygiene. do you want faeces all over the bathroom? do you want to risk spreading contagious particles (such as calici virus) to your fellow humans? hopefully your answer is no. please, just close the fucking toilet after you are done. thank you.
