My toilet bowl seems to have developed a whole flora and fauna of its own, and it's fucking disgusting.

Something keeps growing in it, coming back after you clean it off.
And this isn't just your regular microscopic toilet-mold, this looks more like seaweed or grass, transparent brownish underwater grass that grows from the sides of the toilet bowl getting longer and longer.

What the fuck man.

Since any basic biology class will teach you that algae can't grow without sunlight, i have concluded that this must be some type of nasty fungus.
A slimey stringy brown fungus that grows like grass and lives on the nutrients in my fecal matter and that is possibly growing inside my body too. (nasty)

I have never heard of anything like it.
I must be the filthiest fucking person in the world, high-school biology groups could make field trips to my toilet.

Any theories?

PS. Sorry about this thread, but i haven't made one in a long time.
Besides someone had to destroy the christmas spirit.

It would be hard to make it visible enough in a photo since it hasn't grown long yet this time.

Perhaps i should let it grow for another 2 weeks.
It'll probably reach the surface or something eventually. (Oh man fucking nasty)

I thought you were describing what it looked like. Underwater grass looks different!

Plus, maybe your bathrooms flooded, who knows.

Also I kinda skimmed that sentence anyway.

In any case, I dont know what it is, but sounds gross.

pour bleach into the toilet, let it sit for a couple hours. The problem will go away. Make sure that the area is well ventilated before you pour the bleach in.

Bleach. Also buy some toliet duck or whatever is equal to that in viking land.

Just make sure you dont mix the blech with some toliet products. Or next thing you know you wonder why there is nasty gas in the apartment*

Mixing bleach with an acid makes a hydrochloric acid which will fuck you up even at low levels. Some toilet bowl cleaners contain acids so don't mix the bleach with anything. Your also not supposed to mix ammonia which is found in urine with bleach but for some reason I could never resist peeing in a bowl full of bleach.
Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Ammonia mixed with bleach forms NH2Cl, NHCl2, NCl3, and N2H4, which can kill you pretty quick if you inhale much of it. All four are toxic to some degree. N2H4 can also burn skin.

I suggest that you piss in it and don't flush for a couple of days. Piss can be pretty toxic and the pH change might be enough to kill it..

definitely sounds like a fungus, which is not unusual. It wont grow inside you. The fungus most likely originated from an airbourne source, not from your bowels. Even when you close the lid, or clean the toilet frequently, the fungus can still find a way in - usually through the crack between the seat and the toilet. Bleach works. If not, try laundry detergent - do it more than once, though, to ensure that the fungus wont spread. See if you can determine the source, but that is not necessary nor always possible.

I recommend sulfuric acid, which you can get at your local wal-mart.

Now now, if you are going to spring for that, you might as well go all out.

Fluoroantimonic acid is the way to go, HFSbF5

Mofo will kill everything (it can rip methane out from isopentane. It is at least a few quadrillion times stronger than 100% sulfuric.
