I took a shit.

Usually my deuce would sink but this time it floated. I am curious, any thoughts?

Need pics to help ease the analysis?

Thanks

I remember learning why some shits float and some shits sink in college, but I cant remember exactly what caused it.

Ahh, the great sinkers and floaters incident of 2009.

Consider yourself lucky; vegetarians consider floaters as the perfect poop.

noa

It has to do with the levels of air and gas in your poop that affect the density, and these changes air and gas levels can be caused by your diet.
Some people say it just has to do with the amount of fat in your diet, but that isn't necessarily true.

shit! I just took a look and it sunk. I flushed it.

Why did it float. I am eating the same stuff lately.

Sometimes the gases produced by bacteria in our gut don't have a chance to collect into a large fart bubble, but remain dispersed in the feces. The poop then comes out foamy, and has a lower density than water. Poop with a high fat content will also float.

NO! Flushing it was the biggest mistake you could have made.

Why the hell did you just flush the toilet 6 minutes after posting this thread?

There are a couple of reasons why it floated.

I'm going to have to go with reason number two.
