[score hidden] 10 minutes ago The written word is literally the most versatile and evocative form of expression thathumans have devised.Not everyone appreciates just how complex and nuanced it is, of course, but in thesame way that the tempo of a song can change its tone, or a pinch of salt can alter theflavor of a meal, or the lighting and composition of a photograph can change how itssubject is viewed, something as small as a single comma can completely alter both themeaning and emotion offered by a sentence... and by extension, the content of anentire written piece.After all, the way in which something is written often conveys more than the informationin the words themselves.permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]cousin_geri8 points 3 hours ago Lint rollers.

I watch my infant child squat to crap and think "my legmuscles would be way better AND I'd have no wipe shits if we used squat toilets likeyou hear about in Asia.Mind you this is just a theory. I might be wrong, but I tell myself it's true.permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]Forikorder[score hidden] 47 minutes ago even if you squat your still gonna have shit on your asspermalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]Jef_Leppard_1 point 1 hour ago Oh. Ok.permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]DRW08137 points 3 hours ago Not necessarily a single invention, but sewers. Cities would not be possible without a goodsewer system. What’s even more impressive is that we had sewers in Ancient Rome. Theyhave saved millions of lives of the years by having cleaner sanitation.permalinkembedsavereportreply[–]govshutdown5 points 2 hours ago I just replaced a toilet yesterday (and i never again want to look at or smell the hole ofdeath in every bathroom floor), and i was thinking the same thing... like, just poop in aroom and it will magically get sent out of your house... it's pretty awesome.
