a: large intestine ~
b: a long conveyor belt


"Your large intestine is like a long conveyor belt. As stool moves through it, moisture is pulled out. When things are working as they should, this results in a soft, but well-formed stool arriving at the end of the intestine, ready to be evacuated. The aim of a bowel movement is not to empty the bowel, but rather to evacuate this well-formed stool."
