Hi everyone... Don't skip just reading the title. please. I know what you usually do on toilet.... but my question is something different. Yes, some of us read newspaper to spend the time on toilet. There are some person who make their daily plan sheet on toilet. Some tend to remember their yesterday and the faults that they have done... and realize not to do this day.... and many more.... Me, i think. Really i think about some innovative ideas. It will make you surprised when i say that the story of my first novel was thought while i was on toilet. When i suffered to continue the story i went to toilet and.... i got the ideas. The toilet gives me some good lyrics, stories, wordings and so on. Even this discussion is also thought to day when i was on toilet just minutes ago. Thanks to my toilet. So, please share about your activities on toilet. Thanks in advance.

My husband has a stomach condition which causes him to have to spend a long time on the toilet when he goes...so we keep handheld games in our bathroom. I play them, too, if I'm going to be there for a while. He used to read the newspaper but, aside from the fact that I could never find it, the newspapers started to pile up in the bathroom and I didn't like that...so I bought the games.

Hi spalladino.... Sorry to hear about the condition of your husband. i wish his quick remedy. So, do you play games while on toilet? Is it comfortable to play it on toilet? I am not so clear about your statement. Anyway, have a nice day.

lol. Such a funny post, Shibham.:) But, well, my husband or I am doing stuff in our toilet, too.I think we are too liberated or we can concentrate more when we are confined in that four little cornered part of our place. I think there, or sometimes i just vent out my frustrations there. Talk to myself, shout or cry like crazy in there. There are also thoughts and ideas I have clearly sorted out when I was in the toilet, thoughts that i'll never came to terms with if I am somewhere else. MY husband, makes the most of his time inside the toilet. Doing what? Well, you can guess.LOL

Haha! I read when I'm on the toilet. Sometimes I read for almost an hour. I forgot that I was at the toilet. Sometimes, I watch movies or episodes while doing my business. I also chat, text or talk to somebody on the phone.

Well for me I always cries inside the bathroom. Lol. I mean when my boyfriend and I have a misunderstanding, I couldn't cry in our house because I don't want my family members see me crying so am going inside the bathroom and cry. I also always sing inside the bathroom while I'm taking a bath or else. I love to sing inside the bathroom because it feels like I have a quite good voice. Lol.

Hi uyab... I appreciate about your thought that you don't want to make your family upset by sharing your problem. But if you are really hurt and hide all those from your family, then some problems may create and you will not be able to solve it privately. So, you need to share some of your problem with them. Again toilet is not the place to hide your emotions. Please don't mine.. it's just my humble opinion. Have a nice day.

I only do my ' big job ' in the toilet and nothing else.However it is in the bathroom while having my bath that i get all my creative ideas and my inspiration.Many times when bathing if i think of someone,that person does turn up or calls me on the phone.Or if i can`t remember something then it usually strikes me when bathing.There is some connection between the water and the brain because when the cold water strikes the head it activates the brain and all the ideas come flooding in.

I usually play psp or nds on the toilet, or read some stuffs. But sometimes, I play the guitar while sitting on the toilet! Bet you have never heard anyone do that before?

Hi Shibham, Wow you are a writer - a novelist! I could not find an appropriate emoticon here... I always wanted to be one... Ok, for your query - Long back, during college days, I saw this on one of my friends toilets' wall - "You will not get rich sitting here" and I added this one below that line - "But you will certainly get the ideas to get richer". I know writing on anyone's wall is unethical but it was during our college days and it was funny at that time. We had just watched the hindi blockbuster - Maine Pyaar Kiya and the sticker was a copy from that movie so I did not hesitate writing my stuff below it. Personally, I must admit that most of my ideas come to me on the toilet - be it my programming needs or my writing needs or anything else. I am having ulcerative colitis and so use the toilet more frequently than anyone else I personally know and most of the times I find myself thinking when I am inside. I still remember that during school - class 10th final Board Exams, I would take my notes inside to get them by-heart. Cheers, theSids.

Hi dude... Not a novelist actually but try to write. You may see the cover page of one of my novels here on my photos. Yeah... when we were in university hostel, we also did the same activities on toilet. That was really funny to see some quotes on toilet wall. There was a quote that i still remember.. Shake well after use ... hahaha. I find the meaning of it after a long time. I can't carry my study materials to my toilet. I can't concentrate on what i am reading so better to come out from toilet quickly and get bust on study table. Have a nice day.

Hello Shibham, Your ideas are originating from there. I heard from many people as they are building home, getting well with their jobs, doing good business etc when they are in this safe place. Our thoughts are endless and all are lonely in that place so the thoughts will be doubled as there is no interruption, I think. Personally I don’t have any such habit and I don’t need much time there. More often I am disturbed with my kids and my elder one is at home, he will remember to ask something when I am ‘in’. His question may be ‘what are you doing” grrrrrrrrrrrr. I am standing upside down……… can’t you wait for some moments for me…is the sky is going to fall…….

Hi sree... Not the safe place... for me it's the best place to think. As you have said that some people originate their ideas on construction of home, career building and so on... i too do the same. When i was a student i try to remind all the answers that i have memorized. hahaha... That was the best place for me. I take a long period on toilet if i have to get some ideas and my mom becomes silent as she knows that i am about to sit on my table to write something. But now a days i have lessen the time as i am too busy with my daily tasks. Have a nice day.

I usually read the newspaper when I am on the toilet but like you whenever I need to think and concentrate on a design or problem I also sometimes do it on the toilet. I guess it has to do with the toilet being quiet which allows me to concentrate more.

This is a funny question but true. Personally, when I go to the toilet and I'll be there for a while, I bring a psp with me or anything I could play games with me. Sometimes, I bring pen and paper and I would write down all my tasks for the day in an organized manner. And yeah it's true that you could really think for lot of things when you are in the toilet. It really is a thinking toilet. Hahaha.

Hi florencia... Thanks that you have found some fun here. Playing games is too hard to me on toilet. I never write down anything that my brain pops out... I just run to my table and begin to start on my note book. Really a thinking toilet.... sure. Have a nice day.

Ahahahha, you got a useful toilet there which can give you a lot of ideas. I don't really think about anything when I'm in the toilet except for the usual things that we do there. I don't even read the newspaper when I'm in there or think about anything else. The only thing I think about is to get over my business and get out of there as much as possible.

I usually just wait and savor the moment, my head painful to even think. i never do anything productive inside the bathroom until i get the perfect mood. the smell of my own excrement just bothers me too.

i used to cry in the toilet. i think that is the best place for me to cry because i don't have anyone who see me crying. it gives me some 'me time' to think what already happen too and prepare what i should do next

Hello Sibhie, i know that it is not good to cry alone. everyone needs a shoulder to cry on. but i just feel so shame if someone's see me crying. I am the type of a person who prefer to hide my self.

LOL what a strange discussion but thats ok they are fun. I really dont have time to do anything while I'm on the toilet. It only takes me a few seconds to poop then I'm out of there. I know some people who are in the bathroom for like a half hour and its like oh my gosh what takes you so long.

Well I poop about as fast as I fee if not faster lol. If I went and used the toilet as soon as I felt the need to go I would be in there a lot longer tying up the toilet when someone else might need to use it. I wait until the very last minute when I have to go so bad that I can barely hold it then I go and use the bathroom. Then yes it comes out in a few sceonds and I am done. The only time this is a problem is when I go to use the bathroom after waiting and holding it as long as I can only to find someone is already using the toilet and then I have to wait even longer. Thats brutal since we only have one bathroom.

Hello friend, when i go to the toilet, i take the laptop with me and continue what i'm doing online. When i was teen, i always took books with me to read for my long staying in the toilet, for now i make everything there really fast and i have no time to think about something special But i have to make a schedule for my daily plans, and may be the toilet atmosphere will help me really much with my plans, because i love being with myself sometimes, thinking about important things.

Hi suggar... Ohh... I have a special mylotter here who brings her laptop to the toilet. But here you have a friend similar to you. Making daily plans is quite common. I too that some times if i have to do lots of work. I like to set the schedule rather than thinking about a story. @nuggle... As you have met your met than both of you can chat online at that time. Is not it a nice idea? Have a nice day.
