2/26/2004: London's toilet art installation

What happens if you turn on the light inside after dark?

Geez...talk about shy bladder.

I was over in London & Paris recently and I refused to use these toilets that are out in the middle of the street. You never know what dirty bugger has been in there earlier. Harrods & the Ritz was a much better choice and even came with a nice selection of perfumes for you to spray to your hearts content.

But a clean snob.
Leah Thursday Feb 26 09:50 PM
Why.... thank you Bruce.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness, unless of course you are in Safeway, when it is on aisle 4 next to pet food.

Now this, on the other hand, is great art.

If anyone is ever in Amsterdam there are some great toilets in the Museumplein. The cubicle doors are clear glass until you lock them and they automatically mist up - clever stuff

Welcome to the Cellar, Dotster. I remember seeing a thing on TV about how they work. It was talking about using them as house windows for controlling passive energy gain and loss. Then they showed the toilet door application in a night club. Not for the paranoid.
Dotster Friday Feb 27 10:03 AM
Thanks for the welcome!! Those toilet doors were still a bit seethrough though but it's Amsterdam and you can see worse (Or better!!!! ) in the shops

I guess the level of concern changes when you're talking about seeing or being seen.

judging by most nightclub toilets i've been in, if that happens you've got bigger problems.

Hi Dotster, I use your domain registration services all the time!

Hello Undertoad Wish it was me I might be a bit richer!!!!
Dotster Friday Feb 27 12:06 PM
Has anyone ever used one of those Japanese toilets that have all sorts of gadgets? I haven't but I'd like to know if it would be worth a try

WARNING! Dotster, do not push the button labeled ATE.
Dotster Friday Feb 27 01:40 PM
That could be very nasty if you sit too far forward on the seat

One of the Stephen Starr restaurants in Philly also has bathrooms with the clear wall that mists up when you close the door. I don't know which one though.

Anyone who has been a Boy Scout in the USA and gone to Philmont, the Scout ranch in New Mexico gets used to the latrines in the back country which come with plenty of fresh air and a view!

I spent 10 days at Philmont, and somehow I think I only used one of those one time. I'm not sure how that worked out. We must have had a lot of base camps with real (ie enclosed) facilities.

Best outhouse view I ever had was in one on a pass in New Zealand. This is the view from sitting on the throne:
tjennings Friday Feb 27 04:47 PM
They really need to somehow combine this thing with that remote viewing kiosk from a few months ago.
Dotster Friday Feb 27 05:13 PM
Hello chrisinhouston I find your toilet picture a bit disturbing. What are the holes in the side for? Did you really have to sit on a toilet with a hole in the side that people could poke twigs, branches or whatever through? Has it had any lasting effects? Like the idea that you can hold hands with a friend while using it though!!!!!!
Dotster Friday Feb 27 05:15 PM
Hello Glatt - I'd never get off that one soooooo beautiful
Dotster Friday Feb 27 05:22 PM
Dare we ask what you passed?

Damn, Glatt, does anyone in NZ have two legs the same length? Looks like there's not much flat ground to go around.
chrisinhouston Sunday Feb 29 09:25 AM
You see less and less of these now out there, they are mainly on trails that require materials to be brought in by horesback. More females in the program have made for outhouses with more privacy but less of a view.

We had the tv n for background noise the other day and CNN Headline news had a superbrief blurb on this. Steve said, "look honey!" I looked up and scoffed. "I saw that weeks ago on the Cellar. Keep up."
richlevy Sunday Mar 7 10:41 PM
Man, I have to go there someday.

3 hour boat ride, day and a half hike? Seems like a lot of trouble to take a crap. I thought 30' to the outhouse was bad.
