    There has got to be a better way to do this... :eek:

    Sydney - Australia has more than its fair share of sharks, crocodiles, deadly spiders and jellyfish and now residents of one town have been warned to beware a new hazard - the exploding toilet.

    Residents in Sale in Victoria state are being warned to batten down their toilet lids next week, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's (ABC) website said on Thursday.

    It said the local sewerage authority has posted a brochure to homes warning people to keep lids closed and weighted down all next week while the sewage mains are cleaned with high-pressure jets.

    During a similar operation about three years ago, raw sewage exploded out of a toilet at one house and coated the walls, floors and ceiling.

    ABC said the brochure did not mention whether people can use their toilets during the week-long operation

    Ok, so you're supposed to batten down the lid of your toilet, what if you need to use it? That would be a helluva feeling if it exploded while you were on the can.
