No, I did not know this. It must be because of the noise? I know I don't flush when every one is asleep, and my son does the same (4 years old) for fear of waking daddy. So funny.

Flushing toilets doesn't make that much of a noise in an apartment building, No, there's no way that this can be true, there's health issues in not flushing toilets especially if a few people are living in the same apartment.. I guess this is just a joke or from one of these stupid forwards that people keep sending around :(

what do you say there, " sorry I cant come to work, I spent the nioght in jail as I flushed my toilet yesterday at 11 and my neighbours called the police". lol ALaska too has its weirdness a[parently you can shoot and kill a bear there but it is illegal to wake a bear and take a picture for photo opportunities.In california its illegal to eat an orange in your bath tub.In Florida its ilelgal to fart in public after 6 P.M. on thursdays.In Peachtree City,Georgia, it is illegal to be homeless. For more cramps in your stomach go and have a look at this : http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~jimella/laws01.htm

Why is my question? And at what time are they allowed to flush again? And how do they monitor such a law? What is the punishment if a person forgets if they get up at 3am and flushes without thinking? So they have a punishment for leaving the lid up too? LOL
