An H2O  ice molecule obeying the 'ice rules'  The 'ice rules': (also called the Bernal–Fowler rules [766]) each water molecule (right labeled 'a') has four hydrogen-bonded neighbors, two hydrogen atoms near each oxygen (~1 Å), one hydrogen atom on each O····O bond; thus H-O-H···OH2 and H2O···H-O-H

Thomas Crapper (baptised 28 September 1836; died 27 January 1910) was a plumber who founded Thomas Crapper & Co in London. Contrary to widespread misconceptions, Crapper did not invent the flush toilet. He did, however, do much to increase the popularity of the toilet, and developed some important related inventions, such as the ballcock.
