Do you look at your own poop before flushing?

I was talking to a friend of mine, who says he NEVER has seen his own poop in the toilet bowl and that he flushes without looking at it. Personally I need to know color, consistency etc and have a habit of looking at my work, how about you all?

I glance to make sure there is nothing there that's not supposed to be there.

I find it odd to think that you don't...I mean, do you dispose of your toilet paper without looking? I'm calling your friend out, OP. I think it's worthy of a hidden camera investigation to prove him wrong. We'll look forward to a report on your findings.

I also don't believe it. You look down at the handle to flush, and the poop at the very least is going to be in your peripheral vision.

The better question is why is he in such denial? Potty training issues?

Being LI, I like to keep tabs on it, so a quick glance is always in order.

There's a scene in 'Basic Instinct' where Michael Douglas is talking to his shrink. He flippantly rattles off a list of things that he does trying to prove to her that he isn't crazy. One thing he says is that he doesn't look at the bowl before he flushes; suggesting that looking at your fecal matter and liquid waste is weird.

This has haunted me for years because I can't help but look. I have to! What if there's blood? Or the Virgin Mary? All this time I thought I was crazy for looking, but based on the responses here it now seems that screenwriter Joe Eszterhas is the weird and crazy one. I'm thankful to the OP for creating this thread. You've helped me more than you could possibly know.

I often think of that scene when I look at mine.

Hey, it's a quick check of basic health and diet. For example, if your poop turns white, it's time for a new liver.

I do, sometimes. One time I checked after taking a centrum multi-vitamin earlier that morning, and my stuff was olive green. It kinda freaked me out.

Ditto on both counts. I like to know what's going on down there.

Sometimes I'm proud of what I've created. So yeah, I have to see if I've pooped out a masterpiece.

A guy I know in college had such a massive one that he called everyone in the hall to come see it. It apparently had circled the bowl more than once, like a sundae, and ended up out of the water. He made everyone look at it and a few people took pictures since it was so majestic.

Yep, I need to know if it's going to be a multiple flusher or not.

One time I had eaten like 4 blue icing cupcakes and I got totally freaked out when I had blue shit (same thing happened with red icing and again with blue except the next time there wasn't enough and it turned out green).

TMI?

Slightly off topic, but is that also true for dogs?

My dog doesn't have that problem, but I live in apartment complex and somebody around here doesn't pick up after their dog and their dog's poop is chalk white. I always wonder what the heck is the dog eating...maybe he needs a new liver!
