Probably leaky drain pipe form toilet which passes through that room. Work out which corner of that room is below the toilet, you will probably see a swelling in the wall where the drain pipe is hidden. Call a plumber and get him to fix it.

Both below answers are correct. It can also mean to wash away- flush the toilet. It can also mean blush- Her faced flushed red at the laughter. A flush is also a type of hand of cards in poker.

Yes, when someone works under water they need to be pressurized so they dont compress while under hundreds of feet below water.

There is an urban legend that Elvis Presley, the "king of rock and roll," died on the toilet. See the link below for more.

one would be putting Saran wrap on the toilet, below the seat, but still sealing the opening. Then the next time they use the bathroom, it just stays there and is nasty to clean up >:)

It really depends on a few things, where the clog is(is it in the toilet itself or in the "stack" below the toilet that runs into the sewer system and what is causing the clog. For lack of a better way of saying it, if it is toilet paper or a large #2 then a plunger will usually do the trick. For really stubborn clogs you could use a toilet auger, just pay attention not to damage the finish on the toilet bowl.
