Either way yeah, that's terrifying and you would be justified to call the police.  The guy was threatening, harassing, and a threat to himself too.

No kidding. Hope you made it out alright on the whole, since that situation sounds like it was a bit fucked up indeed.

Own personal WTF. Driving back on the interstate today, light sprinkles. Nothing serious. I go brake my car after the in front of me begins to slow down. Happens daily enough. Up ahead, someone else is swerving into the curb lane, probably because they didn't. Cue behind me two more cars doing the same thing, followed by the penultimate jeep flying up over the curb and up onto the grassy hill on the side of the road.

Thankfully, I didn't observe any damage and two other cars pulled over; presumably to either contact medical services and/or help the driver and make sure certain they were ok. Drivers though... Drivers need to be a lot more careful. Myself included, but... Yeah. Shit.

Shite. They actually did it. Grandma has a kindle now. Grandma that doesn't like to read instructions and still has trouble figuring out the microwave's basic functionality after better than a year and a half. That has difficulty with pressing buttons on appliances.

Family, when this person has problems with this thing, I'm dumping the mess on you fucks. I premeditated this shit. Her kindle's registered. Mine hasn't been and won't be, and is an older model besides. I've got an excuse and I'm going to be using it.

You know that blue clorox bleach stuff you can put in a toilet to clean it?  My roommate (who's name is not on the lease mind you) bought a tablet and put it in the toilet... water tank thing.  So now instead of having a toilet that fills with water I have a toilet that fills with bleach + water.  All the time.

I just... why?  The bathroom smells like bleach all the time which is disgusting and can't be healthy.  A quick google search reveals that in most toilets those products will corrode components in the water tank and no plumber recommends you use them.  And of course if it breaks its not THEM that has to explain that to the landlord.  This is the dumbest thing but I'm actually fucking furious right now.

That's... that's fair.  I was going to try and catch them in person to talk about it but better to ask forgiveness than permission.  Especially since its bothering me this much...

Aren't there tablets that are designed to be put inside the toilets water tank that don't use bleach?

Maybe?  I didn't even know these things existed until today.  The particular brand my roommate got is called "bleaches and blue."

Edit: Okay I got rid of it.  But seriously, the product is a generic version of this.  Almost every single recent review says that the internal components of the toilet dissolved within 2-3 weeks, even if they put it in multiple toilets.  The remainder report that the tablet shrinks and then gets sucked into the pipes and clog them.  I have no idea how the product has a 4.5 star rating, probably fuckery since its on clorox's own website.

Some of the dropin tablets are used to control hard water deposits, and are basically just salt.

In this case though, it sounds like your typical sanitation type dropin.  Bear in mind, that marketers have pressured a LOT to be able to call all kinds of things "bleach", not just sodium hypochlorate. It could well be one of those other kinds of "bleach". Depending on what actually happens to be in that tablet it might be benign.

*fake-edit--- found ingredients

https://www.thecloroxcompany.com/en-us/what-were-made-of/ingredients-inside/clorox/clorox-automatic-toilet-bowl-cleaner-bleach-blue-rain-clean-scent-44600301761/

Contains no hypochlorates. Like, AT ALL.

What it does contain is Dichlorodimethyl Hydantoin.  As the description says, it releases halogen bleach. This is where the bleach smell is coming from. This could arguably be worse than actual sodium hypo, as the resulting released product could actually be more reactive.

Going to be honest, chemistry is not my strong subject.  I'm cautious around bleach because I know someone who literally, not-an-internet-joke drank bleach.  Don't like even the fumes.

Typical liquid bleach is sodium hypochlorite. 

That is: NaOCl

Or, Salt (NaCl) + Radical Oxygen (O).  When it comes into contact with a suitable electron accepting material, that oxygen bolts like a spooked horse, and reacts with vengeance.   The instability of the compound is also why bleach loses its potency when you leave the lid off. (the radical oxygen escapes into the air, leaving salt water behind.)

In the case of what is in that tablet--- It's a bit bigger of a molecule.
https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/15925748#section=Top

When dissolved in water, it hydrolizes, and releases the bound chlorine atoms. It releases radical chlorine, rather than radical oxygen, like hypochlorite.

Chlorine in aqueous solution binds readily to a number of substances, including most metals found in fixtures, forming soluble salts that then wash away.

Was helping some guy at an education-related thing fix some problems with his phone, and must have hit the wrong button or something in his browser and all this hardcore gay porn came up. Closed the thing super-quick once I realized what I was looking at, and luckily for both of us he had his attention firmly on the PC he was using at the time. It would have been super awkward if he'd seen me see it.

Reelya, I was a computer repair guy for years.  I even did it professionally.  I have seen every kind of hidden porn collection that can possibly exist, including the illegal kinds.

We shall leave it at that.

As for "suddenly hardcore gay porn"---  I used to work with a cliche flaming queen, who would constantly try to show me pictures of his latest erotic escapades.  It seemed the more I said I did not want to see, the more he tried to show me.  What a brave new world we live in that has such people in it.
