The geometry of the flush

For all of you disbelievers out there, go into the facility of your choice and examine the pipe exiting the toilet, the diameter of the glazed collar at the bottom, etc., etc...

Do you honestly think a Koran would readily fit in there and flush nicely? C'mon already! Sheesh!

Thus we arrive to the poor but dignified figure no. 2... A typical run-out pipe of the sort which exits from our friend, Mister Throne (shown dashed), superimposed on a garden variety trade size paperback. Still having difficulties? Then you probably always will.
