In unrelated news... a GIS of 'fiberglass shiathouse' yields the most incoherent collage of unrelated pics I've seen recently. And only a single pic of a shiathouse. And it's made out of wood.

I blame the Pope. If he would set a better example and not shiat in the woods, we'd have far less problems

I've been camping in places where the bathrooms are so utterly filthy that it's better to use the woods.

Outhouses are disgusting. Give me a tissue and some shrubs anytime.

People in fiberglass shiathouses shouldn't drop bricks.

Take a shovel, dig a hole and put a toilet seat over it with some blankets hanging from nearby trees for privacy. Shovel some powdered disinfectant on it and cover with some of the dirt. Just a bit of planning.

Not just that. There is a making of video where they lay out the concepts and you watch the percussion and singing.

I have seen pretty nasty outhouses and porta potties in my day so i dun blame those folks in the least.

I read a book once on how to compost human waste (and build composting toilets) and it occurs to me that that may be more practical in these places than latrines.

Just a thought.

Apparently, said the anthropologist, that when you take someone who has been crapping outdoors their entire life, and then suddenly require them to crap in a 4x4' room in conformity with Western concepts of cleanliness and sanitation, they often develop constipation and claustrophobia.

A better way might be to design methods of sanitation that allow people to relieve themselves in such a way as to provide them emotional and psychological comfort and yet dispose of their waste in a sanitary way.

But what do I know, I'm just a normal human being.

Yeah, most people are closer to what we think of as wild animals than civilized human beings. This isn't surprising to anyone who has lived near a huge population of immigrants.

QFT:  I was camping in a national park once.  Fortunately, there was an outhouse.  I opened the door to that thing and got knocked back by stench and flies.

I opted for taking a shiat in the woods.

But now that I think about it, I wonder what it was like for the first person who took a shiat in that outhouse.  It must have been pretty nice at one time.

I also wonder what the plan was since it was not a place where they could just drive a truck up to and clean it out or replace it with a fresh port-o-potty.  And most people think the port-o-potties they find at music fests are gross.  That would have been luxury.

Just think though - this is how people used to poop even in the dead of winter.

Yeah but at least it was their own filth.

Not surprised. When I was in France I saw a guy shiatting in the gutter. He wasn't drunk or otherwise acting crazy.

Civilization is a thin illusion that we pretend is everywhere. It needs to be constantly reinforced or it is lost. And in some places, it's only ever been the thinnest of veneers.

About two years ago I caught the gardener who tended to the apartment building I was living in taking a shiat in the dumpster.  Swear to god.

Composting toilets are only about half a step up from outhouses, of which I've used both.

despite having indoor plumbing in their mom's basements, dozens of farkers still prefer to shiat in threads.

When I was about 9 years old I shiat into a ziploc sandwich bag and chased my older cousin around. He was a bully and all around jerk, but also a germaphobe. He was terrified and actually cried, and though he would make me pay the price later, for that one day I was king. Also, when he told my mom that I was running around the house with a shiat bag she wacked whatever shiat I had left in me right out. Miss you everyday, Mom.

Sun-mar composting toilet FTW! Use one out in the middle of nowhere on my property. Clean and odor free.

If you spent your poor life shiatting in the great outdoors, why would you want to crawl into a tiny box filled with the feces of the rich?

The country with the largest number of public defecators is India

This is consistent with everything I've ever heard about India.
 
2014-05-11 02:30:52 AM
If you've seen public latrines in China and SE Asia, basically yeah, you'd want to shiat out where there is atleast some fresh air.

Once I saw a rat scurry from the entrance of a bathroom.  Stuff of nightmares, I tells ya.

CSB:

Tour in Africa a few years back. An aging Brit lady goes to the latrines in a tourist trail camp in Tanzania. Very shortly afterwards she bolts out of there screaming. Turns out that that when she sat down a monkey reached up from within the toilet and clawed her ass.

I'm pretty sure she still has nightmares about that.

On the other end of the spectrum, the cleanest public bathroom I ever saw was in Japan (no big surprise, I suppose).  It was in a convention center in Osaka.

I walked in and it was the most immaculate public bathroom I ever saw.  Everything was shiny and white, not a speck of dust or grime anywhere, everything also looked brand new (except that the center was built in the 70's or 80's), smelled great.  AND as the cherry on the cake, the bathroom had piped in sound effects of birds chirping.

I actually turned to my colleague and said, "I've never said this before in regards to any bathroom, but I could eat off this floor."

Had pretty much the same experience in Chiangi airport, Singapore. That restroom was built to wow anyone coming through and it hit the mark!

GungFu: When in Germany, I poop on German people.

The toilets in Germany are weird. Toward the back of the bowl, where we in the US would have the "deep end of the pool" is a shelf for your poop to land on. I knew all about the the stereotype of "German scheiße porn" and "scheiße fetish", but do they really need a presentation shelf in the toilet so they can inspect their own turds?
