Keeping on the toilet track, once people get back to work there will be a call to make up for lost time by increasing production.  Great gains in employee efficiency are possible by decreasing toilet time.  By slanting the toilet seat forward, more load is placed on the leg muscles which start fatigue after the strain of a few minutes.  And no, I am not making this up.99B5DC96-AE01-4787-994A-48450153CD87.jpegImage Enlarger

So it's good or not good to do so???

Imagine that in primitive times, people squatted and had way more load on their legs when doing their thing!

The biggest problem I see with it is not leg strain. It's that the anorectal angle produced by this slanted toilet seat results in both incomplete evacuation of the rectum (which may mean more trips to the bathroom) and increased susceptibility to hemorrhoids.

Isn’t the ideal to have your knees higher? I read that somewhere. The toilet should be lower, or you use one of those stools they now sell for easier “stool release”. Seriously, I did read that somewhere. The thighs angle up to a slightly higher knee, not angled down to a lower knee.

If Dr. Francis Collins develops a quick vaccine for the virus, she deserves to have her portrait on the $20 bill.

Members of the National Guard are being increasingly used to add hospital beds.  No doubt members of their medical branches are also being deployed.  I Googled available health insurance for them, and it does not look good.  They are treated as part time employees with limited on the job accident coverage.  No protection for their families.  What a way to run a rail road. 

Edit:  I found out that, once activated, the Guard is covered by medical insurance unless waived.

Well since I've been stuck in my Berlin real estate I've been only cooking and eating more. For sure fitness club is waiting for me after the whole country opens up.

@GregW and others.  I contacted my state senator on this.  He said that I was right under a drill situation.  He said once they are activated (which they are now in Connecticut), they are covered under a military plan unless they choose to waive it.  I will edit my original post to reflect this.
