Hehe, you guys really need to get out more, especially to third world countries. In India for example, in the larger cities I recently read, they're having quite a problem with people NOT using new indoor restrooms, especially with 'other than urinal needs' in that folks are so used to simply reading at the edge of the road, or off a train platform, or where ever...that they are not getting used.

Naturally I'm sure you all realize why "offering your left hand" is an insult (think lack of paper products) and no, you're not supposed to stand up when using a "squat toilet" or "head pipe" (literally, a hole cut into the floor with just a drain pipe in it)...I'll save you some of the photos which make that urinal look futuristic, yet I think this sign sums it all up as western plumbing makes its way elsewhere in the world:

That brought back a memory, and since you went there.....

By the time I deployed most of the base camps had porta-john contracts. Halliburton and other contractors brought in droves of very low wage employees from the third world. You get very limited "couth" for $400 a month and 12 hour days. They had no idea how to use a port-john and we gave up trying to explain the sanitary advantages of sitting down and using toilet paper. We had about ten johhnies brought in for their exclusive use and the world was right again.

Actually the way most third world countries use the facilities is healthier than how we sit to do our business. We kink our intestines making it tougher for our bodies to properly perform certain functions...

On that note I'm perfectly happy sitting. Nothing wrong with a little kink every now and then lol

You'll just have to scroll back up to GRTLKS pic and put on your imagination cap. What could possibly go wrong with trying to hit the target from a foot or two away? Nobody had to remind you to take your flashlight. to the Porta. It was definitely a culture clash. And I'm done with you on this now lol.

Culture clash is day 3 port-a-johns at a music festival... You learn that there's reserve muscles that'll help you until you get to the closest gas station... Makes you wonder how desperate the others were to even allow a mound that goes inches if not almost a foot above the seat

I won't post it but feel free to look up urinal trough diving on YouTube and see what some drunk NFL fans will do on a dare.

Well, this thread in attacking the genius of the U.S. plumbing fixtures industry needs a reminder of another classic U.S. invention (and yes, we have all seen it, I'm just beating you guys to the punch).

Click the image to open in full size.

Then again, we're about to head "up north" and the wife mentioned about wanting to hike around Grand Island, and asked since there is so little there, what were the restrooms like being a National Rec. Area.

Well here is one, right next to the trail...

Oddly, we're not going to Grand Island now
