firefly212: Eh, fark the naysayers, transmissible diseases kill thousands of people a day in the third world, lack of access to proper toilets leaves them contaminating local water supplies, or leaving disease laden fecal matter near town where bugs and stuff just spread it to everyone in town. Toilets are a (necessarily) huge part of good sanitation and clean water, and attention should be given to the fact that millions of people in industrializing and third world nations don't have access to them.
theorellior: Fark, no. Indoor plumbing and proper sanitation is one of the major advances of Western civilization. We should celebrate this every damn day. Just this morning I indulged in the luxury of grunting a deuce without flies thick in the reeking air around me, and when I was done my toilet whisked the offending material off to the water treatment plant for proper processing. And so far no one I know has died of typhoid fever, cholera or dysentery.
Strolpol: Say what you will, subby, but the number one thing that pretty much everyone takes for granted coontil they don't have it anymore) is the ability to poop comfortably.
