dopekitty74: bingethinker: On the bright side, their chances of dropping their phone into the toilet are zero.You make a very good point there... Never done it myself, but have known a couple of friends that have.My worst cellphone dunking occurred due to dozing off in the bath while reading online
DownDaRiver: /filthy place
bighairyguy: Only six people have cells phones? Boy do I feel special!
downstairs: bighairyguy: Only six people have cells phones? Boy do I feel special!Well, if you have one, and my family has four... who's got the other one?
GreenAdder: They just need to work on Flush Over IP technology.
MaxxLarge: DownDaRiver: /filthy placeI find Indian culture fascinating. The music, the fashions, all of it. I've never met a native Indian who wasn't absurdly friendly. And MAN, am I ever a hardcore Indian food addict.But there's just no way in any of nine fresh hells I'd ever go to India on purpose. All I ever see when I see pictures or footage of the place is filthy water, nonexistent sanitation, chokingly large clouds of dust, and slums upon slums upon slums.CSB:I have a friend who used to be a Microsoft tech in Seattle. And he went to Mumbai to train a satellite tech-support location. M$ put him up in the nicest four-star hotel in town, a place strictly designed to cater to Western tourists. They even had beef on the menu at the restaurant.But, to hear my buddy tell it, the signs that were up in his bathroom telling him not to drink the water were completely superfluous. Because when you turned on the taps, the stuff that came out was apparently the color of apple juice, and smelled like raw sewage.By day 2 he was sponge-bathing in the sink with bottles of Dasani he'd bought at the corner shop./CSB
DamnYankees: While I would rather have a functioning sewer system than a functioning cellular system as a whole, I personally would gladly trade my own toilet for my iPhone. I'd rather have the phone - going outside to take a shiat isn't that big a deal.
dabbletech: What's worse - having no toilet at all or having an AT&T toilet that drops service right in the middle of things?

Bennie Crabtree: So, bascially the most signifcant and realitstic education in the world is a Communications Studies degree. Which is cool, I guess. Every other graduate of college is just bumblefarking through life a bit clueless.
studebaker hoch: You can improvise a toilet.
maxheck: Walker:Problem: The U.N. says emerging economies such as Brazil, pictured, account for 80 per cent of open defecationThere are efforts towards fixing that. I dunno what's to be done in Sao Paulo, but some of the UN and other NGO's efforts have convinced people in some places that proper outhouses make life a bit less... um... Shiatty.What a typical school in the hill country of the hill country of Nepal might be proud of:
