Potty talk … Ever wonder how much time you waste sitting on the toilet? A new British study has revealed that adults spend the equivalent of eight months of their life sitting on the toilet. The average person heads to the bathroom twice a day to go number two and six times to pee. That amounts to just over 15 minutes every day -- or almost two hours a week on the toilet. The study found that 33 percent of respondents said sitting on the toilet was one of the only times during the day when they get some time to themselves. The study also found that women are more likely to strike up a conversation in a public restroom with a stranger than men are. (SWNS)

They chose their phones. (MedicalXPress)
