The average person in the UK goes to the toilet 2,500 times a year.

(Over the course of your lifetime (assuming you live to the ripe old age of 80) that’s 200,000 times!

If you Google about this (go on you know you want to), you’ll find a lot of web sites say you will spend 3 years on the loo.

The trouble is, by my reckoning that works out at:-

Supposing we live for 80 years, that’s 29200 days, and we supposedly spend 1,095 days of this on the loo, that’s 1,576,800 minutes on the loo, which works out at 54 minutes per day  (I’m not a mathematician so do correct me if I’m wrong).  Now I don’t know about you, but I do not spend 54 minutes a day on the toilet!

I wonder who worked this out.  Maybe they need to visit a doctor.)

Here’s what I think is more likely:-

Assuming 7 visits to the loo per day, and an average of 3 minutes per visit.

21 minutes per day.

7,665 minutes per year * 80 = 613,200 minutes in a lifetime.

10,220 hours rounded up to 426 days That’s 1 year 61 days.

Maybe I’ll revise this when I’m 80.
