And now... back to the ugly.


When I first glanced at this listing found by Freelance Writer, I thought it was tile behind the toilet. But.... no:

My initial reaction: EWWWWWWWW!!!

I guess that about sums it up.

Look at the bright side... never again would you have to actually pay for penicillin.

I once had a real estate agent who put those little yellow sticky noted all over the house to point out amenities.

What do you think the sticky notes in this picture say?

"Hey look over here!"

i initially thought that someone had doodled on the wall while they were hanging out on the toilet. but then i clicked the link and learned that it was mold not ink pen. ew.

@ shira-chan: You mean, "I guess that about scums it up."

The Electric Code Police called to say you can't have electrical outlets within reach of a bathtub.

But the mold is fine, so carry on!

gamzulatov,

I believe the yellow sticky notes list what types of mold are found on each of those surfaces.

Funny how mold can look like marble from a distance.

I too wondered about those post-its (or what looks like post-its).
Well at least they brighten up this disgusting room.

Aiiiieee. I thought it was marble.

What I want to know is the secret to keeping the mold only on certain parts of the wall. There's a real money making scheme going on here.

Don't worry, according to the listing you only need to gut the entire lower level.

Man, this looks exactly like my in-laws house if it was attacked by horrific mold-aliens! How did this happen? I don't see how that home could ever be healthy to live in again.

What to choose, what to choose. Bare your butt to toxic mold or tinkle in the brambles and bushes.

I rather take my chances with the brambles and bushes.

I'm sorry, but are those yellow crime-scene number tags?

The moldy plot thickens.

So? - What's the matter for you? The black blotches on the wall are to match the black marble bath tub! Ain't you people got no class?

I think I need to go clean my shower now.

That mold just might be ergotized (i.e. it could have developed psychedelic properties). When you have people over you can have free love transcendent orgy wall licking parties!

Oooooh! SO this bathroom must be in the basement. That explains the line.

I live in Wisconsin. The entire state had a big problem with flooding this year due to overly heavy rainfalls. Standing water up to 6 feet in people's basements was a common occurrence. Many families were evacuated from their homes and the homes were condemned until the damage could be repaired.

I am very glad my house did not flood this year!

So much mold... so monochromatic... I thought it was a black-and-white photo, with hand-colored spots to highlight the sticky notes!
