    O.K. Splunge... here's something that Canada will never have...

    I hope the U.S. never does either...

    Hey, can any of our English members pop on over and give us a report?

    That would be so freaky! Would you even be able to get past the thought that maybe people CAN see in? I know I'd have a b**ch of a time using it.

    Then again, it would be pretty good for beginner-exhibitionists.

    I guess people looking at chicks on the street will find another use for it.

    And couples as well. :D

    I'm sure all the local vandals will be pleased - smashing up something new will be quite a novelty to them :D

    Not quite true.

    A totally unsubstantiated rumour (started by me, just now) has it that Toronto, in it's usual desperate attempt to be "trendy", once tried something similar. Not surprisingly, they messed it up, and put the walls in backwards. So not only could people using the facilities see themselves do their "business" from any angle, so could everyone else.

    Give me a rock and it's "the end" to that toilet; why not use it as a shed instead?

    There's a restaurant here in Philadelphia that has glass doors on the restroom stalls. They're polarized somehow so that when you turn the latch they go from completely transparent to completely opaque.

    Talk about freaky :roll:

    That's funny...I read a story about a Restaurant in Philadelphia that used an optical trick on their restroom doors to make the patrons think that the glass went opaque when the latches were closed...so not only did the doors stay extremely clear, but somehow an image of the stall occupant was transmitted to a large screen television that was mounted on the wall outside the restaurant.

    Funny how they would use the same gimmick twice in the same city ;)

    lol metal leper! The sad thing is, London being the tourist hot spot that it is, Ken *twat* Livingstone will likely spend about £20,000 of our congestion charge money to protect it. While people on poor estates get robbed, murdered and drugged up.

    Abstract art truly is the biggest waste of time and money and is degenerating into a freak show. I mean, who's seen the last winner of the Turner Prize? 'Nuff said.

    I was just going to post a link to that! No fair! But still, I can honestly say that as weird as it is, I could totally use that, whether I had to go badly or not it doesn't matter. Looks like fun!

    So all that anonymous mail that keeps showing up in my Junk mail folder is from you, Hack?

    @Rally

    Well...I'm sure a couple are from me...but I can't really vouch for what happened after I gave Splunge the videotape.

    I just realized that this is the second toilet thread that I've started...I wonder what that indicates about my psyche?

    Nobody answer, please.

    eBay!!

    Although the bidding war I was hoping for hasn't really materialised. Maybe people are put off by Rally's SP thong. :p

    Edit: Just realised I'm going off topic yet again (this is becoming a bad habit). So, on-topic, I'll just say that, unlike reepnorp, I don't think I would want to use that thing.

    Good idea in theory, but imagine if someone smashed down your walls while you were on the loo...

    I want one :grin:
