Why are hot water handle always on the left? Because cold water handles
were already on the right since the majority of folks were right
handed...all this before running hot water.
And from an article on Costa Rica
Figuring out my faucets!! I was somewhat puzzled for a while because the
right faucet has a H on it and the left faucet has a C but the hot water
faucet is on the left and cold on the right. I finally realized that the H
stands for helado (chilly) and the C for caliente (hot)!
And then there's this little silly 'clue' ...
"Please drive on the right side of the road (left side if your country has
the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle).
Although your home inspector should have checked during your home
inspection, when you move into your new home, be sure to double check all of
the plumbing faucets to be certain that the cold water faucet is on the
right side and that the hot water faucet is on the left side, that's the
standard convention that people are used to. Imagine a guest in your shower
who adjusts the cold water faucet to cool down a very hot shower only to
come to the unhappy conclusion that they have actually made a hot shower
scalding hot; an unpleasant and potentially hazardous surprise.
Remember, always drive on the ``right" side of the road, that's the ``cool"
thing to do."
So much for it having anything to do with 'hot air rising'...this post
should rise pretty high...hehehe.
The Three Rules of Plumbing:
1) Hot on the Left
2) Cold on the Right
3) Shit don't flow uphill
On a related note, can we locate the dickhead who invented the
push-button faucet and cut his balls off with piano wire? I fucking
hate those things. They most often turn up in fast food places, where
the employees are supposed to be washing their hands before returning
to the kitchen. Now, since we're already operating under the
assumption that there is *something* on their hands that *needs* to be
washed off, how much sense does it make for them to hold the button
down with their contaminated hands, wash their hands, and then have to
hold down the contaminated button with the hands they are trying to
clean, in order to rinse the soap off of them? Don't get me wrong, I
know why places like that use them, because if they didn't, dickheads
like me would stuff paper towels in the drain and leave the water on,
flooding the bathroom, but wouldn't it make a whole lot more sense to
have some kind of foot pedal setup, instead?
I realize this isn't really very important, but it still annoys me

Here in Australia some of the more up-market places now have automatic taps,
you put your hands under the tap & the water just comes out.
Who said Aussies are behind the times?!?!?!?!?!?
The only place near here that has those is a Chinese restaurant, but then
the whole effect is spoiled by a door with a doorknob that must be pulled
inward. For sanitation purposes, public restroom doors should all be
push types that open out. They should be placed in high traffic corridors
with doors that suddenly swing out.
Two newly weds rented a room in a big hotel and, since they were shy, they
decided to turn out the lights, take off their clothes and then they would
meet each other in the middle of the room in the dark and consumate their
They came out and headed for each other's silhouette in the appropriate
position but missed. The groom went through the french windows and fell off
the balcony into the pool.
He had no clothes and the foyer of the hotel was busy so he called up to the
room as loud as he could.
He called for some time and nobody came. Then eventually a hotel employee
came and brought him down a big towel.
"Sorry, sir" he apologised. "I would have come sooner but there was an

The ones that bug me are the automatic urinals,....you'll be in there all

One day, after a near eternity in the Garden of Eden, Adam calls out to
God, "Lord, I have a problem."
"What's the problem, Adam?" God replies.
"Lord, I know you created me and have provided for me and surrounded me
with this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, but
I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Adam?" comes the reply from the heavens.
"Lord, I know you created this place for me, with all this lovely food
and all of the beautiful animals, but I am lonely."
"Well Adam, in that case I have the perfect solution. I shall create a
'woman' for you."
"What's a 'woman,' Lord?"
"This 'woman' will be the most intelligent, sensitive, caring, and
beautiful creature I have ever created. She will be so intelligent that
she can figure out what you want before you want it. She will be so
sensitive and caring that she will know your every mood and how to make
you happy. Her beauty will rival that of the heavens and earth.
She will unquestioningly care for your every need and desire. She will
be the perfect companion for you," replies the heavenly voice.
"She will be, but this is going to cost you, Adam."
"How much will this 'woman' cost me Lord?" Adam replies.
"She'll cost you a leg, an arm, an eye, an ear, and a testicle."
Adam ponders this for some time, with a look of deep thought and concern
on his face. Finally Adam asks God,
"Uh, what can I get for a rib?"
Stop dreaming,....she'll never grab you....
That's right.... my every wish is your command
good...... she doesn't wash
