Initially thought the toilet chain had come unhooked from the flapper: no prob

It came unhooked because the rubber hole on the flapper valve had worn through: boo!

Turned off water to toilet: success

Detached & extricated flapper valve (pointedly not thinking about all that gunk in there): success

Will go to store to see if they have flapper valves of the right size (will bring detached valve as reference): this afternoon

DID ALL WITHOUT CONSULTING DAD: so far so good

I thought I'd read this again whilst on holiday in Prague. I had read it many years ago and couldn't remember anything about it apart from the beginning. Upon reflection I could have picked cheerier holiday reading, though this was nothing compared to reading The Jungle by Upton Sinclair on the beach (protip: don't do this). Alienation is your cliff/spark notes theme: discuss.

If I'm completely honest though, immediately upon finishing I thought of this scene with Universe 1 and Universe A Farnsworth:
