    How the hell...

    Last week, Kim Kardashian West did Vogue's "73 Questions" series, where she shared a glimpse of her house in Hidden Hills, California.

    The segment showed the kids, featured some Kanye funny moments, and overall was super cute.

    But a lot of people have questions. Valid, pressing questions...


    ...about Kim's sinks.

    can someone PLEASE explain the sinks at kim & kanye's house

    Like, we get it, the house is super minimalist, but how the hell do these sinks work?????


    And, like, she has a regular ole sink over here???


    Everyone's like, "WTF, THERE ARE NO BASINS. WHERE DOES WATER GO??????????????????????????"

    i NEED to know how kim kardashians bathroom sink works.....

    Some said the sink is concave, so the water runs down into the small drain (seen in the pic):

    @djcoochnbooch @katienotopoulos Sink is a concave conical engraving into the marble with a drainage hole about 10 inches from the faucet. You can see the drainage. It's like a slide that gets more narrow as it approaches the drain.

    @KeepDopeAlive @djcoochnbooch the dark spots are the drain. the sinks are slightly concave down to the drain. hard to see in this pic, look at one farthest away.

    This person, who may or may not be trolling, said the marble absorbs liquid:

    @djcoochnbooch @ASAPVick_ It’s absorbent marble stone.

    Another person said there are sink covers that come off:

    @djcoochnbooch They're called sink covers. The 2 dark spots are where you put ur fingers to lift them off

    On Wednesday, Kim took to Instagram to explain. She said the sink was designed by Kanye, Axel Vervoordt, and Claudio Silvestrin. "The sink does actually slightly slope down. There's a slit for the water. You can put it on as high pressure as you want and no backsplash."

    She also said eight — YUP, EIGHT— versions of this prototype sink were made. Are you surprised?


    Well, there you have it. Designed by Kanye and others, slopes down, and took eight tries. I gotta go because I'm done talking about sinks. Bye!


    UPDATE: This post has been updated to include Kim K's explanation of her weird sink.
