TikTok has been opening people's minds to new things for a while now, but this "hack" is somewhat questionable.

The video platform allows users to share videos of all kinds. Singing, dancing, funny content, and even educational hacks. My favorite thing to watch on TikTok are the life hacks. Some of them I already knew about, others I am discovering for the first time like so many others. There are quite a few that I will see that make me think "why didn't I think of this before?!"

I've seen a lot of these hacks that I felt like I had to try out, but the newest one that I found raises a few questions. Apparently we have been sitting on the toilet wrong this whole time. A woman on TikTok posted a video over the weekend where she says that when we sit down to do our thing on the toilet, we need to be sitting backwards to where you are facing the tank of the toilet.

In the video, she says, "Get your favorite snacks, get your favorite show, and that's how you poop.  It's the best of all times.  And you just sit there poopin' and you're jamming out."

I just have a couple of questions and concerns about this theory. While putting your tablet or phone on top of the tank to watch your favorite show while you're going number two sounds good in theory, let's think about this. In order to sit backwards on the toilet like that you have to completely undress from the waist down. That seems like a lot of work to take your clothes off just to put them back on again once your feet go numb on the toilet. Am I wrong in thinking that?

Another concern I have here is the fact that she's recommending everyone to eat your favorite snack on the pooper...doesn't that seem a little gross and unsanitary? While I appreciate her enthusiasm and concern about how everyone sits on the toilet, I think I am just going to stick with sitting on the toilet the old school way. Unless someone can make an even more compelling argument as to why I should sit backwards. I'll wait...
