The piping in north america is WAY too small. Everyone I know has had clogging issues, i swear the pipes are half the size they are in OZ.

The difference is that North America uses siphonic toilets, whereas Europe and other areas use washdown toilets:



The benefits/pitfalls to both designs (ie, skid marks) are described here:

There's not enough flush either, at home the water comes in from all sides, crashing and making a general rukus. Here it's like a gulping sound, not a lot of washing machine so to speak, it's fucking weird.

Kohler toilets with AquaPiston flush system will almost never get backed up and it uses a siphonic design.

Washdown's "pitfalls" are mostly bullshit there. It's WAY easier to clean a toilet ("hands-free": just apply a dedicated chemical from the bottle, no rubbing) than to de-clog one! When in US I had to discard used toilet paper as dry garbage (I felt guilty!) instead of just flushing it down.

Great find at a garage sale. Bought two practically new bikes for $50 (!)
An older couple were selling their house and moving into a condo and were getting rid of a lot of possessions for cheap. When they bought the bikes a few years back, they had a lot of good intentions of riding etc... But the bikes remained unused in their garage.

I'm keeping one for use on my trainer after I fit a road tire in the back for a smoother ride. ( That was annoying with my TREK.) And gave the other one to a young 15 yrs old girl who's mother is a patient of mine. They are not well off and this was her very first bicycle. She cried, I cried. We all cried.

That's a great find LJ, I love a bargain myself and it's heartwarming knowing you gave the other bike to that not so well off girl.

Lucky Brand have been my favorite Blue Jeans fire the last 20 years or so.
I also wear Silver, Joe's and Levi's.
But this particular pair of Lucky are some of the most comfortable jeans I've ever bought! I thought this "cool max" on the tag was a gimmick. But they actually are on to something here....
