A 62-year-old man from Dawson Creek, B.C., who survived a stroke in his washroom by drinking toilet water for seven days, is hoping his story will help others avoid a similar situation...

“Later on that night I figured out my problem was water,” Adsley is quoted as saying by the CBC. “So I unscrewed the bolts from the toilet, turned it into a little cup and could reach with one arm, just far enough in – and could put a little cup in the water in the bottom of the toilet bowl. So I drank it.”

I'm not sure what to feel about this or think. A little horrified, feel bad for him, oddly amused when I should not be.

Forgive me.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

I'm amazed that he actually had a spanner in the head.

Either that or the dentist is gonna give him hell about the condition of his teeth.

But, hey, if he had a wrench ~ why not just undo the water connection and drink from that? And while he was tinkerin' around on the honey-do list he coulda' just drug his arse outta' the crapper and made for a phone?

This story is beginning to smell on several levels...just sayin'.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
