There was a notion when we were much younger that sitting in a bucket would make our bottoms bigger.
Many people found this idea fascinating, and on laundry days it became commonplace to see students at our boarding houses using one bucket to do laundry while sitting on another.
The idea was that we would mysteriously find ourselves with a mountain behind us after spending hours in this small boat.
It’s a prevalent belief that rumors have some merit, despite the lack of scientific evidence supporting this theory.
Remarkably, a few women who ventured to use this technique experienced amazing results.
They talked about the agony they occasionally felt in their hips and buttocks, which was undoubtedly caused by the way the bucket was made.
Still, they persisted, and at last they declared themselves successful.
If you have a spare bucket, you might be tempted to try this strange experiment, curious souls out there.
The future? It might disprove the myth or, against all chances, it might produce unexpected outcomes.
There is very little risk involved in performing the act—unless, of course, a broken bucket falls on you.
