    Toto, the Japanese jaxpreneurs, make some in which a handbasin sits atop the cistern and the handwashing water is used for flushing.

      #2 (titter!) is probably one of the easiest wcs to keep clean. The suspended bowl means you can mop underneath easily, the cistern is probably hidden in the wall, so that’s one less surface to worry about. The see-through floor would show up any dirt better than pure white tiling. Overall, there are very few surfaces and no nooks and crannies.

      Hard to imagine how a typical home would have that much basement space below though. Maybe that’s the sort of set-up Fritzel had to keep an eye on things in his cellar.

        that’s true I got BOGGED down on the more busy ones I guess,
        Hey ever hear how the mathematician fixed his constipation ? He worked it out with a pencil.

        Any design with the cistern hidden behind the wall would be a pain in the bum for getting at for maintenance.

        Before the 2001 inauguration of George Bush, he was invited to a get-acquainted tour of the White House. After drinking several glasses of iced tea, he asked Bill Clinton if he could use his personal bathroom.

        When he entered Clinton ‘s private toilet, he was astonished to see that President Clinton had a solid gold urinal.

        That afternoon, George told his wife, Laura, about the urinal. “Just think,” he said, “when I am president, I could have a gold urinal too. But I wouldn’t do something that self indulgent!”

        Later when Laura had lunch with Hillary at her tour of the White House, she told Hillary how impressed George had been at his discovery of the fact that, in the President’s private bathroom, the President had a gold urinal.

        That evening, when Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed, Hillary smiled, and said to Bill, “I found out who pissed in your saxophone.”

    A toilet made of solid ice…… only a Sociopathic mind with twinges of nihilism could concoct such an idea. Could you imagine the nightmare of sitting on that thing? There’s a very real chance that some exceptionally vital organs called get stuck to it.

    There’s themed toilets on the Champs Elysees where each stall is themed and a uniformed fella goes in to clean the place between each person. Costs €2. Or at least it did the last time I was there about 5 years ago.

    Oddest toilets I been in, though, are in Copenhagen. We were knacker drinking on the docks and the nearby strip club let us nip in to use their loo…which had a peephole in the door. You learn to pee fast and with an eye on the door the whole time.
