Influencer advocates backwards toilet stance

And other stories from the stranger side of life

A toilet roll

In a new social media trend, people are sitting backwards on the toilet so they can eat and watch Netflix while relieving themselves. Viral videos on TikTok are showing people sitting backwards and facing the flush after the influencer @AmyWoahh told her 11.6m followers she did it. “You have been pooping wrong,” she says. “What I want you to do is poop backwards. Get your favourite snacks, get your favourite show and that’s how you poop. It’s the best of all times.”

Lost surfboard shows up four years later

A surfer has found a board he lost four years ago after it drifted at sea for thousands of miles from the bottom of Australia to the top. Danny Griffiths lost his favourite board at the very southern tip of Tasmania. It was found, covered in barnacles, by two brothers near Townsville in north Queensland, more than 1,600 miles away. An oceanographer said the board “must have gone the long way round” via New Zealand.

UFO spotted above Arizona

A couple said they saw a UFO floating in the skies above the Arizona desert in broad daylight. Kristian Noel and Kelly Dees were on a road trip to San Diego in California, US, when they filmed the object. Kristian has dismissed suggestions it was a drone or other everyday object. “It didn't move like a helicopter or an airplane would,” he said. “It just stayed stationary in the sky, high above the mountains.”
