How to avoid getting norovirus on a cruise ship


By web gangsta | Published:

Cruise ship.  Norovirus.

These two words, when seen together, can cause panic amongst new cruise ship vacationers who don’t know what they’re about to get themselves into.

Just a little bit of E.Coli can cause significant gastronomical distress on a cruise ship, and no amount of handwashing or Purell will erase the memory of a vacation gone bad in the aftermath of spending day upon day stuck (almost literally) to your stateroom toilet.

You’ll be lucky if you have a balcony – at least then you’d be able to air out the room and maybe see a little bit of the sights inbetween your bathroom runs.

What your urine color says about you


By web gangsta | Published:

We all know the common diet theory of drinking eight glasses of water a day. (We’ve heard variations on this that say that eight glasses is a misnomer, and you need to take your weight and divide that by 2 to give you the number of ounces of water to drink a day).

Regardless, you’re still drinknig a ton of water, no matter how you cut it.

But every body is different, so how do you know if you’re drinking enough water at all?

Poo-Pourri’s Business Plan Stinks. Here’s what they should do instead…


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s happened to everyone.

You’ve had to go, and you’ve had to go bad – and you’re not at home where it’s typically safe to do so.

Look, everyone does it — we just don’t want to share that fact with our friends, neighbors, or family.  Web Watch was talking with a couple the other day who did not have the pleasure of living with each other before getting married.  On their honeymoon was the first time that either had experienced The Smell from the other… and she made him leave the hotel room while she took care of her business.

Ah, young love.

Diet sodas are filled with poop. Seriously.


By web gangsta | Published:

How many diet sodas do you drink in a day?

Two? Three? Twelve?

There’s a reason Diet Coke is more popular than regular Coca-Cola — people just like the taste better, regardless of whether they’re drinking it because it’s a diet beverage or not.

But have you looked at the ingredient label lately?

Tales from the Office Bathroom: Office Bathroom Rules


By web gangsta | Published:

The office bathroom, as Web Watch has pointed out many times before, can be a nasty place.

But, as life happens, so does having to use the office bathroom at some point during your work day.  (What, you’re going to go down the street to the McDonald’s?  No, you’re going to do your business in the more immediate area. You know you will.)

How much pee does an elephant hold?


By web gangsta | Published:

Different animals can pee different amounts.

College-aged fraternity guys have been known to “pee like a race horse” after (or during) some beer events at the house.

Let’s think about that phrase for a moment — does it mean you’re peeing as much as a racehorse would?  Are you peeing in the same manner that a horse does?  Or are you merely peeing while running around a track?

Language – it’s so complicated.

Worst argument for working in an office vs telecommuting, ever


By web gangsta | Published:

Some people are lucky enough to WORK FROM HOME.  They think that just because they’re home all day, that really is like a vacation day and they can spend the entire time running errands or taking care of house projects under the guise of “working”.

Others take their telecommuting a bit more seriously, and end up working longer hours than their office-bound counterparts in order to retain the flexibility of maintaining a home office.

How many times per day do you fart?


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody farts.

The question is, can you catch someone else in the act?  Look around the office – do you have a serial farter in your group?

Why not propose a game with your co-workers: whoever can fart the most without being caught wins the prize money.  It’s a game that everyone can play!

Men still don’t wash their hands in the office bathroom


By web gangsta | Published:

Office bathrooms are usually a stinky, awful mess.

You have any number of people who don’t wipe down counters, pick up paper towels off the floor.  And is there really a need in an adult environment to have to post a sign that says, “do not flush paper towels, they will clog the toilet”?  How many people are really doing this?  Who’s taking paper towels into the toilet stall in the first place?  Are they really that much more comfortable than the typical office toilet paper to use?  Really?  REALLY?

The most ridiculous toilet ever made


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that you get more money on home resales by investing your money in two places: the kitchen and the bathroom.

But sometimes, as you walk through people’s homes, you have to ask yourself what could have possessed someone to make the decisions they did on various home designs and features.

Would you rather use the bathroom or have Internet access?

When was the last time you flew on an airplane?

If you’re a recent traveller, then you already know all the ins-and-outs of airplane features and add-on costs. You carry your own luggage, bring your own snack, supply your own headphones.

For you, the airplane is merely a means of getting from Point A to Point B, and isn’t intended to be a luxurious place to relax for a few hours.

Proof that you can pee in the ocean


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows that swimming in the ocean isn’t for everyone.  If you think about it, you’re swimming in the same water that billions (billions of trillions?) of fish use as their personal bathroom every day.

Have you ever wondered why the ocean water is unusually warm on some days compared to others?  It’s not because the sun warms the water — it’s because there’s more fresh pee in your immediate area than normal.

How much poo does a hippo produce a day?


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s a simple math problem:

You have a hippo.  You need to know how much poo a hippo produces a day.

What’s your process to determine this?

Let’s think this one through a bit, shall we?  It’s not like you can ask a hippo how much they weigh, let alone get the hippo up onto a scale at the end of the day.

So what’s a hippo poop researcher to do?
