Have you ever used a squat toilet?
In Vietnam, but only in the rural areas.
As someone currently living in Southeast Asia, yes, though I avoid them as much as possible because people tend to miss in the public toilets (experienced this horror today in the subway station - clearly someone's curry didn't settle well)
Ewww, tourist toilets are the worst.
At a rest stop near the France/Spain border when I was 16. Imagine my surprise!
Lol, I don't need to imagine.
Yes, in different forms, different places. And some situations more "primitive" than that.
I understand the squatting position is significantly healthier. Tough; it was never the least bit comfortable for me.
That article was wrong. The Chinese invented toilet paper sometime around 600 AD. So no, not every human on earth used their hands to wipe until the 1900s. There is a reason I'm glad I live now. Give me my Charmin or give me death. ;)
But I have used that kind of toilet - in Kenya. They're aweful.
No. But I love that profile pic :-)
Cats, expert sleepers.
Yes they are!
Yes. In Syria, they were more common than regular toilets. I hate them so much.
Is this an offspring of our Chinatown discussion? (Which I seem to have abandoned, although that wasn't my intention.)
In a way, yes.
