The object, which is estimated to be around 10-12 feet (3-3.6 metres) tall and made of some type of metal, was found planted in the ground, tucked in a red rock cove. It was spotted in Utah by state wildlife officials who were helping to count bighorn sheep from a Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) helicopter.

We all appreciate the little things in life, and that includes spending five minutes on the toilet scrawling through Twitter on company time.

The corporate poo patrol is coming after your precious toilet time

But those days may be at risk with the StandardToilet, a seat that claims to drastically reduce toilet time. Approved by the British Toilet Association (BTA), a members organisation that campaigns for better toilet facilities, the StandardToilet sits at a downward angle of 13 degrees. After around five minutes of sitting, this will cause strain on the legs, similar to a low level squat thrust, but “not enough to cause health issues,” reassures Mahabir Gill, founder of StandardToilet. “Anything higher than that would cause wider problems. Thirteen degrees is not too inconvenient, but you’d soon want to get off the seat quite quickly.” It was inspired by a series of annoyances. The fight to clampdown on toilet time has begun, it seems.

There is some reasoning to the StandardToilet. But these luxuries are largely reserved for a minority of workers. Hundreds of dead birds found in mystery mass death.

Woman boiled dirty knickers in hotel kettle when she didn't have clean pair. There are a number of reasons why you shouldn’t boil your underwear in a kettle, in case you weren’t sure.

Woman boiled dirty knickers in hotel kettle when she didn't have clean pair

It leaves bacteria inside the kettle which the person after you will end up drinking, and it doesn’t even clean your pants properly. But one woman didn’t seem too bothered when she boasted about using a hotel room kettle for her knickers after her period came unexpectedly. Contrary to advice from medical professionals, she seemed pretty chuffed with the ‘quick, fast and hygienic’ method. People on social media were understandably mortified with some vowing never to make a cup of tea in a hotel room ever again.

They were also perplexed that the woman decided to publicly announce what she had done. One woman wrote: ‘Apart from the fact that this is thoroughly revolting, surely everyone knows you use cold water to rinse out blood?” That is entry-level laundry washing, people. Don’t ask us why because we don’t know.
