Steem Basic Income Giveaway: How many times?

in ART LOVERS4 years ago

One of the nicer things about having a Coronavirus enforced holiday is the fact that we get to spend quite a bit of time together as a family... which has led to some pretty bizarre conversations...

This week, we took our child to the doctor as she had some stomach problems... and the first diagnosis was that it was constipation. Which means that we were prescribed some gentle laxative to help with the bowel movements. It does mean that we have a daily talk about poop though... which has led to some eye-opening revelations!

My Question

  1. How often do you normally poop?

My sample answer


I can't even believe that I am asking this question.. but it turns out that it was more interesting than I had thought... my wife goes roughly three times a WEEK! I have a one per day sort of routine... Let me just say that I was stunned that you could go through a whole day without pooping...

So, it did lead me to read about this... and apparently, it is normal for people to poop between 3 times a DAY to 3 times a WEEK! Trust me, my mind was completely blown! I always thought that everyone just went once a day.... like clockwork. This has really been a strange and enlightening revelation for me... I just don't know that much about human (or other...) biology, how is it possible to store that much poop inside of you?


  1. Upvote if you want, it increases the payout and then I can hopefully sponsor more people.
  2. Resteem is NOT neccessary, but the more people see this, the more the people will be likely to be sponsored.
  3. In the comments, answer as best as you can the questions that are posed in the "My Questions"!
  4. I have added a small Steem-Bounty to the post, so that everyone who replies with a valid entry will get something back. If I give your post a small upvote, it is valid (also, subscribe to @dustsweeper for maximum benefit!).
  5. I will be sponsoring as many people as this post pays out in liquid SBD/STEEM. Also I will kick in at least the required amount to round up to the full number. Winner is by random generator after a shortlisting of quality comments!

Steem Basic Income

One of the first communities that I came in contact with at the beginning of my time at Steemit was @steembasicincome. As a author starting out on your fresh new Steemit account, Steemit can be a daunting and lonely place to be. OFten, it can feel like you are posting into an abyss with no one listening and with no ability to grow out of the situation. A share of Steem Basic Income gives you a guaranteed vote on one post a day, thus giving you a small but over time cumulative support to your account to help grow you out of your initial wilderness!

With this post, I want to help sponsor people who might not even have the spare 1 STEEM that is required for registration. So, when this post pays out, I will sponsor people depending on the payout of this post. Basically, I will round up the SBD payout from this post and then that will be the number of people I will sponsor. (So, if the payout is 2.3 SBD, I will sponsor 3 people). OF course, this is not simply an altruistic move, as the sponsor of a Steem Basic Income share also gets a share, so it is a great way to help others whilst helping yourself!

Last week's winners

The last post paid out 0.079 SBD and 0.668 STEEM in liquid earnings. So, that would make 2 shares.

The winners by random draw are:

I must say Bengy this is a crappy question but I’ll add my three a week to it. L0L. I think men have less problems with their bowels as they seem to go mostly once a day while women not so much.

I never thought much about having a bowel movement when younger but now I am more vigilant and will often drink 1/2 glass of pure prune juice if the system seems to be slow.

it's a shit question XD

😂 it does raise a stink.

Haha... I"m sure that we've all really wanted to ask it though! I seem to not really have a problem with the daily thing... although, my wife does seem to think it is weird that it is like clockwork... she thinks it is all in my head! (The need to poop, not the physical poop...).

I’m glad the poop is not in your head Bengy. 😂

When I was younger, i always did it after brushing but this days, around once every 2/3 days.

Yes, it really does seem to change as we get older....

We are able to handle a bit more

What an unusual topic for today! Haha! Well I go about twice a day. Once in the morning and again maybe around midday? 3 weeks is a long time though! Where does it all go? My aunt claimed she went once a month but she has problems.

3 weeks??.... I will have to double check what the hell I wrote! I had meant to write 3 days!

Normally just once a day around 9am this is after I have been awake and had my coffee. This changes for me only when a big meal or new meal is added in to my diet. That will sometimes lead to one at night. Then sometimes I make it one day without but the next day do it when I wake up.

Lots of people seem to have it after coffee as well... I did read somewhere that coffee is a bit of a mild laxative... not sure about that though!

To me it varies. When I eat less or fast, I poop less. And when I eat regularly I poop at least tree times a week. But it is normal to poop even just two times a week if you eat a nutrient dense food with fiber.

I guess, it really does depend on the types of food that you eat... if I eat badly, well... it is much more often!

After waking up and drinking coffee and once more during the day.

muahahah ! It's funny indeed. <3

Well... much more regular than my wife! I heard that coffee is a mild laxative or something like that...

I only drink decaf either way!

Because I am falling in and out of keto, my pattern changes. Also, I (try to be consistent about) taking a fiber supplement.

it goes from a once a day (after my coffee, like the rest of us LOL), to once every 3 days (then many times during that day)

on keto 1/day
but when I fall off the keto wagon 1/3 days

the supp. I take is a fiber pill with both pre-biotics and pro-biotics, and when I do remember to use it, it make things a lot...easier???

the best? on keto, with the and out of the head like the wind ;>

Never push! Only expand. LOL. I tell my kids that all the time too.

have you suggested lamaze to them? ;>

Hahaha. Nope. I just tell them to relax their anal sphincter.


you'd be surprised how often I have to tell that to people in the middle of normal conversation...
then again my idea of normal conversations can be a wee different ;>

HAHAHAH. When I was a High School Teacher, I used to tell my students to "eat more fiber." Sometimes one of them would be confused enough/care enough to ask my what fiber had to do with the conversation. Students who already knew me would start laughing before I even started explaining.

Oh, I guess that a changing diet would have bit of an effect on this! Coffee does really seem to be the stimulation for a poop break though!

defintely one of the better drugs out there!

This is awesome! Aside from all the potential jokes, it's an amusing discussion, specifically because it seems so out of the norm. Love it!

I used to be a one-a-day type, too, until I changed my eating habits and routines to try out "intermittent fasting". Since doing that I've been either one a day or once every two days.

My routine also gets thrown completely off when I travel. It's anyone's guess at that point what'll happen.

Haha... thanks! I think it is one of these things that we are all curious to ask others about, but never really get the courage to do so face to face!

My routine is completely off when I travel as well... I really don't like it!

After getting up and brushing my teeth, before my coffee with milk @bengy

Before coffee?!?!?!... I think you are the only one that goes before and not after!

That's how the bathroom is first and then I go out to the kitchen to get my coffee @bengy

Once, always the same routine. Wake up, coffee and a cigaret and boom... Shower after and go about my day 🥳

LOL, everyone is right after the coffee!
