Would you use toilet paper that had a mouldy bit on it?

I'm housesitting and the loo roll (toilet paper) seems to have gone a tad mouldy. I obviously took the moudly bits off and chucked them in the bin but I am now left wondering whether the mould might have left spores in the rest of the loo rool, invisible to the naked eye. [more inside]

Help identify a musty smell in a bathroom?

Our small main floor 2-piece bathroom has had a musty smell for the last couple of months. We can't seem to identify the source and aside from the smell there is no sign that anything is wrong. We had a plumber in and he spotted a very small amount of (orangy coloured) mould inside the toilet tank, but even after cleaning that up with MoldEx the smell has not abated. What could it be?

Holding the dog over the toilet, yes or no.

100% hypothetical question. I saw a tiny dog being walked today who couldn't have weighed more than 10 pounds. I wondered if such a tiny creature had to be walked at all, couldn't you just train it to go when you held it over the toilet, if it was going to remain tiny for its entire life? Please note I'm not planning to do this. I just want to know if it would be possible. I don't have a dog, and I don't want to have a dog, toilet-trained or not. This is just not an easy or quick thing to google because people use "toilet/potty training" to describe general housebreaking. Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Bollywood music video with men dancing while sitting on the toilets in lockerroom

looking for a Bollywood music video that has men dancing while sitting in toilet stalls--the camera is moving around in a locker room or similar setting and it pans across the tops of the stalls and in each one a guy is sitting AND dancing on the toilet. i know there are a MILLION Bollywood music videos, so this may be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but perhaps someone out there may recognize this one--it certainly is a bit weirder than most of them. i saw it on a monitor in an Indian restaurant, but the waiter didn't know anything about where to find it.

Notebook + Toilet = Gross

I dropped my physics notebook into a (just used and flushed) public toilet. I dried out it in the oven, but I'm pretty grossed out about it. Should I be? How nasty is it at this point, probably? If it is really nasty, do I have any options for de-nastifying it other than copying the whole thing over?

Toilet tank overflowing

Toilet problem: Water is overflowing in the tank (not the toilet bowl). Tried replacing the fill valve in the tank and thought it was fixed because it seemed the commode stopped running at the correct water line in the tank but the water keeps raising slowly until it overflows. Anybody know what the problem may be and how to fix?
