We cannot allow a toilet gap.

Sorry guys, but Japan is clearly decades ahead when it comes to toilet research. We need to increase our science rate or build more universities.

THIS. While in Bahrain I encountered one of these for the first time. I swear I'll own one someday.

Russia had the worst design for toilets when I was there. The inside of the bowl had basically 2 sections. The first was where you left your deposit. The water would then flush into that section, and push your deposit up and over into the second section where the drain was. WTF? So as you are taking a dump, theres just a big ol brownie staring back up at you on dry porcelin. No water for it to sink into. And if you got some pressure behind your dump, fa'getboutit. You are gonna get dirty.

The resulting stench does discourage lingering on the toilet, however. The scourge of buttring has been neutralized in Russia.

This. If I would have spent anymore time in Japan I would have ended up marrying my toilet. It being Japan I probably could have done it. Japanese people probably have the cleanest assholes on earth.

The visual of visiting heads of states to Russia on diplomatic trips being whisked to take a sh*t in their new, opulent toilets in front of the press is an interesting one.

I failed to find a picture of the toilet that the Simpsons see in Japan. It says "I am happy to accept your waste" or something like that.

I was too intimidated to press any of the buttons on my Japanese toilet. (Luckily the one function I wanted it to perform, flushing, it did automatically.)

Then one day I pressed one and... omgwtf? Not gonna press that button again. People like _that_?

These sort of old toilets can still be found all around Europe. It comes from a time not long ago when people used to more self-diagnosis themselves for diseases as doctors were not found on every corners .
First, you should not fear to look at your deposit, it is a part of your body way of working, it's natural.
Secondly, looking at it could help you find early clues (example: fresh or dried blood on your sh*t) of dangerous health conditions you wouldn't know else.

America makes the best toilets, by far. I own a few Kohler's and they are amazing. They only uses 1.28 gallons and manager to clean up any mess I make after a rye and wings night. The Toto I had didn't do a good job of cleaning the entire bowl.

On a site note, I bought a bidet seat (with remote) for my ensuite and it's the best investment I've ever made. I'm waiting for the day I come home and find my girlfriend reading a magazine on the toilet, backwards!

That's actually a German-designed toilet. It's the so-called "inspection shelf toilet." Google "inspection-shelf toliet" for more as to why they exist or read this.

We saw the same setup in Amsterdam. We called it the Schitzenplatter. I guess over there, you really need to examine it or something.

When I lived in Russia in the late '80s, it wasn't the toilets that vexed us (although almost without exception, public toilets were filthy), it was the toilet paper. The stuff was somewhere between 'brown paper bag' and 'fine grit sandpaper.'

First encounter with a squat toilet in southern Russian. I've had to deal with them again in China, and frankly, I still don't get them. I can crap in the woods, no problem, but those squat toilets....

I was in Russia in the late 80's as well and had my first run in with a "trough" toilet. The biggest problem is they had it reversed and poop flowed down to the area where you had to pee. Wasn't even any stalls for glory holes, just dudes with newspapers with holes cut in them....
