    I have never seen a square toilet seat. Is that how they all are in Canada?

    No toilet seats are definetly not square in Canada lol unless they are a "new thing" haha

    ok one important question...why did the sister take the fecal samples on her with the plane??? Why didn't she fly in five days early and THEN uhhh "collect" the samples to give to the doctors?!. You think that would have been alot easier and less gross...c'mon I wouldn't want to be carrying around jars of it on the plane...haha I feel bad for the person sitting next to her!

    That looks like a toilet from Europe, I've seen them in Germany, Dennmark, Poland, etc. They aren't as good as American toilets and have a different system for flushing. Our toilets are far superior.

    regarding the subject of this thread, whatever happened to eating yogurt and taking acidophilous pills? This sounds absolutely revolting.
