    As I write this, my hands are still shaking.
    There was a dead guppy in the fishtank, so I netted her out, dropped it in the toilet, saved flush for something useful. (why waste water)
    My fiancee went in to use her flat-iron on her hair, plugged it in to warm up, but flat-iron fell off top of toilet tank and dropped into the bowl. Thankfully, she was already halfway down the hall to have some coffee while the flat-iron warmed up. The power went out and we went in to investigate. Unplugged flat-iron... looked in bowl.

    The guppy is alive.

    Has something like this ever happened before? How can I have this proven? Gotta go to work, so I'll check back in @ 3 hours.

    That is an amazing story! You reckon you made your own defibrilator, eh?

    Never underestimate the healing power of toilet bowl water.

    April fools, right? :)

    That's incredible if it's true.

    Just went into the restroom - noticed water was moving a little - turns out the re-animated guppy gave birth while in there! Only 2 of what appears to have been 5 were alive, though. And, yes - I think guppy defibrillator is what I'll call this toilet from now on. What a day.

    Wow,

    You probably now have grounds to start a new religion or a cult!

    You will have to convert your bathroom to a shrine! How could you even think of using that commode for bodily evacuation purposes? Geraldo will be calling, get an agent and document everything that happens henceforth. You may be subject to spurious claims that you are not taking care of the guppies properly, or that this is a scam intended to bilk innocents from their lifesavings. Write a book about the experience. Become disenchanted with the shallowness of life, celebrity and the media experience. Drop out of society for a while. Arrange to be followed by an entourage consisting of young girls wearing dark cloaks, and a bald man holding a clipboard and whistle. Do not hesitate.

    Your guppy gives live birth? Forget the "back from the dead" story, THAT'S impressive. ;)

    You learn something new every day, I guess. If I win $1 million on some gameshow for answering the guppy/live birth question, I'll look you up. :)
