I have had the pleasure of needing to stick my hand into a real toilet bowl to retrieve some sort of needed object... Thank goodness those days are mostly past!!

In my case it was usually a comb that had flipped out of a back pocket. Now my hair is gone, so I haven't carried a comb for a decade.

Need a good concentration of chlorine or bromine.

other people might like the idea and can use them where they like.

I don't know if she got the idea from you or thought the evil thing up on her own, but an unnamed boxer did the same and tossed the penny/stamp into a stream, laden with hundreds of naked pennies, running through a downtown mall in Salt Lake City. You had to nonchalantly (with absolutely no cover) sit by the stream and diddle your hand into the water searching for the correct penny, all the while dodging the suspicions of the overly-aggressive mall security. Very difficult to be inconspicuous as a 60+ gray-haired woman, who should know better, in the stream right in the middle of the mall! Talk about E-V-I-L! I guess I could have used one of my granddaughters, but they are really well-behaved and I doubt their parents would have appreciated me corrupting them in the name of letterboxing.
