Nothing wrong with a laundry room on the second floor, but there should be precautions taken like an automatic shut off valve or a floor drain.

Discordianism?  What's that?  Sounds fun... people on a skeptic site are following this?   Can someone sum it up for me in 1 sentence, or provide a video so I can passively learn about it while making zero effort?

It's a pretend religion that people participate in to make fun of religion, while also poking fun at themselves and humanity in general.

There are laundry rooms without floor drains?

Yes, but only until a bad leak creates one through the ceiling below.

Yes, on second floors with no extraneous leak detection or shut-off systems.

Just ask  :steve:

the problem I often find with water is it's tendency to flow downhill.

According to a leaflet from the Jubilee Sailing Trust, water is usually cold and often wet; and if you blow on it hard enough, it becomes very lumpy.

The cold part is not always true, which is why I like Maui and Belize. But when it gets lumpy it can be unpleasant. In the mountains, it's quite nice that it flows downhill. Flowing downhill mostly seems to be a problem when we bring it into our houses.

It does tends to find its way to the bottom of a gravity well, or at least to the local minima.

Reminds me of the two things all plumbers need to know:  Shit flows downhill & payday is Friday.
