Curious survey o' the day

As every schoolboy knows, supposedly our Gallic chums have the lowest per capita use of soap in Western Europe or somesuch.

However, outline details from a survey on time spent in the bathroom suggests otherwise. Apparently the French spend longer in the bathroom than do any of the other European populaces polled (not named, alas), and are in there two minutes longer than the European average. Must be murder for those members of familles nombreuses with access to just one bathroom.

Admittedly they could be spending all that time applying moustache wax / overdoing it with the hairspray, but I feel confident in offering up that poll finding as a rebuttal to any francophobes touting the soap statistic.

However, other findings show that some of those polled (again no detail) think it is just dandy to use phones, laptops, gaming consoles while in the lavatory. Saints preserve us.
