  • the thinking plumber

    i figured that i wanna screw with your heads.

    no i'm not drinking.

    when i was a younger man i was doing dishes and i thought i had collected all of the coffee cups. i missed 1 cup that was 1/2 full of coffee.

    both sinks were full of water.

    1 sink had dirty dishes soaking in it.

    the other sink had clean rinse water in it.

    i didn't want to get the wash water really dirty right off the bat, so i didn't put the coffee in that water. also, the dishes get in the way.

    i was able to pour the coffee into the rinse water without getting the rinse water dirty then add the empty coffee cup to the pile of dirty dishes.

    how was i able to do that?

    i don't use the garbage can, bathroom, standpipe, laundry tub etc. i only used the 2 compartment KS.

    this is an actual problem. i've left a couple of hints.

    pull the drain plug on the rinse water, and quickly shove a funnel into the drain and pour the coffee in the funnel. Then quickly pull the funnel and put the drain plug back before losing much rinse water.

          Hmmmm. Pull the drain plug, and wait for the vortex whirlpool to form, and then pour the coffee down the vortex and plug the drain. Thats all I can think of without the funnel, the vortex would act as the funnel instead.

              let the spiral of water going down the drain work as the funnel?

                  i was going to say put the cup outside [ where you are -40 ] to freeze the coffee and then put it in the garbage

                  or pour the coffee on the floor and let the other guy mop it up
