Modi can promise all the toilets he wants, but I doubt he's ever going to spend all the money necessary for the infrastructure necessary to make a toilet in every home a possibility, especially in the rural areas.

At best, he might get to a point where outhouses are at every house, but toilets? I highly doubt it.

That's a shiat situation.

One of my reasons for not traveling much outside of the US is due to a lack of proper toilets so I can't say I blame them.  I know this is stupid to some people, but it's really important to me for whatever reason.

It's not that hard to build a outhouse.  Dig hole and put structure over it. When shiatter is full, dig new hole and move structure.

Sharma was pissed at her Naveen:
A home with not one pit latrine?!
There just was no way
She'd step out and splay
Her legs-The mere thought was obscene.

There is not even outhouses? Anyone know when were those kind of conditions last "normal" (i.e. for more than 50% for the population) in the western world? I'm thinking sometime in the middle ages (after having them during the time of the Roman empire) but I must admit that I would not bet on it.

About time we had a good old fashioned poop thread. I'll start: Toilets are over rated:

Where in particular would you like to travel if they had toilets?

The women don't like going out to the fields to take a shiat... they wait til after dark so no one can see and it is causing them hardship... have they never heard of outhouses or latrines?
 
2014-08-19 05:26:48 PM  
Just go shiat in the rivers like everyone else.

It's India, the raw sewage is going to end up in their water anyway.

Japanese public toilet. It's self cleaning. I've been in some American convenience store bathrooms that could out funk KC and the Sunshine Band.

I said proper toilets so even those countries where they just have a hole in the ground, no seat, no toilet paper, no sanitation standards, etc. kind of freak me out.  I have a lot of family who live or has lived in various parts of the world and who have traveled to many different countries.  They tell me stories about toilet experiences they've had in some of these places (partially because they know it will freak me out).  This just dissuades me from wanting to go anywhere.  Obviously I expect it in the 3rd world countries, but even some of the European countries seem to have a lot of areas with questionable facilities (or so I'm told).  My aunt (she lives in Italy) likes to tell me I just need to come over and get over my phobias.  It will be rough in the more rustic parts, but it's worth it, etc.

I've travelled all of Italy, well, as far south as Rome. And they had normal toilets.

Same in Eastern Europe.

In France, they have bidets.

In Luxembourg, at what I assume was a crappy bistro, a robotic arm came out and cleaned the toilet seat. (no, I don't make that up. It came out, clamped on the seat, sprayed water, and the seat then turned a full 360 degrees.).

Luxembourg is of course the richest country in the world, which they like to show off with their superiour toilet tech. Apparently.

And you thought a bit of toilet paper in your shoe was bad. I can only imagine the damage this causes when diarrhea strikes.

Yep, why aren't they digging & building some outhouses at least?

It's medieval tech. Not hard.

Yup. There are some Japanese train stations (usually smaller ones) that have this type of toilet. Often these are splattered with almost everything a body expels...frequently after a night of hard drinking. And God help you if you have to do the great #2. It is hard enough to keep from slipping while taking a whizz.

Yeah, I've redecorated one of those before, in China. The Imodium was wearing off, and it was the first squat I'd been forced to use.

/They really should equip all such toilets with a mop.
//And a shovel.
///Just walk away. Don't look back.

I was visiting the (ex)in-laws in Japan, and they had one of those high tech toilets. Of course all the buttons are in Japanese, so I decide to start pressing to see what happens. Well soon, I start getting a spray of water on Mr Browneye and it doesn't seem like it's going to stop. I tried standing up, but that just fired a stream of water onto the floor. So I put my foot over the sprayer and pressed buttons again until it stopped.

Even in a cosmopolitan city like Paris, you still find Turkish toilets in restaurants, and even in the facilities in Pere Lachaise cemetery, they have Turkish toilets. I held it after seeing those!

It's a step in the right direction, although I feel sorry for the poor women--marriage is vital to their status. A proper toilet should be part of every Indian marriage contract, at least for the middle classes.

The poor won't be able to afford them for a long time to come, and I expect the rich already have modern conveniences--if not, shame on them.

If time travel were possible, I'd thing that the lack of modern plumbing would severely limit my choice of destinations. A few places and times in history had something approaching to indoor plumbing--running water for baths, for example, so the slaves don't die lugging hot water from the furnace or fireplace to the bath (not to mention the buckets of ass' milk). Ancient Crete, Ancient Egypt, maybe bits of Ancient Rome and other places, but for the most part, modern plumbing began in the UK in the 1800s and even the aristocrats at Versailles did it in the bushes.

Leonardo Da Vinci (in the  Blackadder special) had the right idea: he build his time machine as an outhouse--it even had water in the commode! Baldrick nearly drowned.

I hope that idea spreads. As opposed to the current idea of spreading disease by dropping trou and pooping all over the place.
