    I watched this when if first came out and understood nothing about the math associated with flushing the cake. Four years later, after three different algebra classes and a year of university physics, i understand. School does things to people.

    So... I'm in a motel room and I may have... ahem... clogged the toilet. I came to this video for inspiration, hoping that multiple flushes may get me out of my predicament so that I don't have to ask a maintenance person for a plunger and do the walk of shame back to my room.

    Update: Success! Flushing a million times didn't work, but the maintenance room was left unlocked! It was a high stakes heist. The prize: my dignity. And it went off without a hitch.

    I sneak into the maintenance room and grab the instrument, then proceed back to my room, walking at a brisk and confident pace. I hear a noise behind me. A complete stranger is entering his room. We do not make eye contact. Whether he noticed the tool of shame in my possession, I will never know, but frankly, I don't care. I will never see this man again, and if I do, I doubt that I will have made much an impression.

    I enter my room and accidentally tilt the plunger a little. Some stored water inside it dribbles onto the linoleum floor. Is it the poo water of a previous guest, I ask myself? As clear as it looks, sitting there under the single dim forty watt bulb above me, I know that it is, in fact, gross poo water. I will have to clean it up later.

    As I plunge, I begin to notice its ineffectiveness. Considering the contents of the toilet bowl, it should have flushed easily. After multiple cycles of flushing and plunging, everything eventually goes down, but I am never granted that satisfying gurgle that informs me that I have succeeded. I know that something is wrong. It was likely something that was wrong before I fucked it up. Yes. That must be it. It wasn't me, it was the previous guest.

    I look into the toilet bowl. It appears clear and clean, as it should be, but I know that if I were to attempt to flush anything solid, or semi-solid, it will not work. I am unsure if I should even pee in it. I check out tomorrow and ask myself, can I avoid peeing in this toilet? The motel has a public washroom. I shall go there before going to bed. I shall use the restaurant's public washroom when I go for breakfast tomorrow. This is a good plan. I congratulate myself.

    I return the plunger, unnoticed, then return to my room. The poo water on the floor has evaporated and I notice that the room has a faint but noticeable odor. I open a window and write my story on the Internet, suddenly realising that something must be very wrong with me. I mean, even before that, going to the Internet to find a four year-old comedy video between the act of clogging the toilet and fixing said clog is kind of weird, isn't it? But I am so far into this now, I feel committed.

    Then, realising that by chronicling this, I am publicly admitting to making a motel room gross and feel kind of ashamed. I scrub the poo water, or at least the area that the poo water touched, with a damp cloth and throw it in the tub. I make sure that some of the dirt I tracked in is visible so that the floor will be properly cleaned. I then write a note, neatly folded and placed on the toilet reading, "Maintenance Note: Weak Flush".

    i fully believed it would flush
    it was almost certain to flush (unless it clogged before all the cake went down)
    the reason is because the cake got soggy from sitting in the water. it would then break more easily and go down the toilet. it most likely flushed because it was weakened from sitting in water.
    it probably could have gone down in one flush if it sat in the toilet ten to fifteen minutes prior
    the cake did flush and that gives me motivation
