The world's most repugnant has been found - with the wall being used as toilet paper - after a travel journalist set out on a bizarre journey to uncover the globe's worst public toilet
The five foot ramshackle tent - with walls that double as loo roll - in northern Tajikistan is so bad those desperate enough to use it must stoop over sun-dried poo.
If that's not enough to put you off, Askey says that by far the "most repellent thing of all" was the fact that its fabric walls were used as SHARED toilet paper!
Upon entering the hole, he was left so disgusted to see that sections of the 'wall' had been torn off, used, and discarded on the cubicle floor.
According to Graham, the toilet in the Ayni region of Tajikistan - on the western edge of the Pamirs and not far from the Afghanistan border - is so vile that the locals refuse to use it unless "absolutely desperate".
Banana also helps (stop it at once) really.Water will make the burning sensation worse for a while.
The only instant cure is to plaster the nether regions in plain yoghurt. (Suppresses a snigger)
It'd probably be a bit messy though. It may even be good fun if you're married or have a partner.
Just for the record ... recently I cleaned some peppers and then without thinking visited the toilet. Don't do that lads! It really hurts and intensive rinsing of the afflicted part brings only slow relief.
'Hot sex' is what she wanted...A colleague of mine once revealed that he’d been preparing a home-made hot curry with some thermonuclear peppers (think “hoop like Smaug’s nostril” hot) when his wife came home from work, feeling frisky. They repaired upstairs for some Barry White time…
Ten minutes later, all that was stopping her from strangling him was that she had to remain seated in her bath of cold water.
Spending so much time and money on one loo in such a large space is suspicious.Not much toilet for this money and time:
…the city of San Francisco is upping its toilet game and is prepared to spend up to $1.7 million to build a single commode in one neighborhood plaza.
City leaders are slated to gather Wednesday afternoon at the Noe Valley Town Square to officially announce a “$1.7 Million state budget win” to build a toilet there, according to an online event schedule. The proposed facility would include just one toilet in a 150-foot space, according to a new report by San Francisco Chronicle columnist Heather Knight.
The city’s Recreation and Parks Department and the Department of Public Works, which will work together to build the pricey potty, expect it will take three years to complete.
I just remembered a note my mother left on the toilet after she noticed the seat was broken in such a way that if you closed the lid it would come unhinged. Unfortunately she was not clear on whether it was the seat or the toilet itself that was broken. Some time later my cousin came out of the bathroom with a worried look on his face and said "What does 'leave it up' mean?"
Listen to the toilet — it could detect disease #ASA183Microphone sensor and machine learning can classify excretion events, identify cholera or other bowel diseases, all without identifiable information

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 5, 2022 – Cholera, a bacterial disease that induces diarrhea, affects millions of people and results in about 150,000 deaths each year. Identifying potential communal disease spread for such an outbreak would alert health professionals early and improve the allocation of resources and aid. However, for obvious reasons, monitoring this and other bowel diseases is a sensitive matter.
In her presentation, "The feces thesis: Using machine learning to detect diarrhea," Maia Gatlin of the Georgia Institute of Technology will describe how a noninvasive microphone sensor could identify bowel diseases without collecting any identifiable information. The presentation will take place Dec. 5 at 4:35 p.m. Eastern U.S. in Summit C, as part of the 183rd Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America running Dec. 5-9 at the Grand Hyatt Nashville Hotel.
The loo once once sat proudly at Lennon and Yoko Ono's home in Berkshire…
I drive past that place every time I visit my Mum. I think Ringo owns it now.“Lennon composed one of his greatest hits Imagine in his bedroom in early 1971 while living at 18th century Tittenhurst Park at Sunninghill near Ascot, Berkshire.
The former Beatle was filmed and photographed while playing his hit on a white piano in the 18th century house which is now said to be worth £105million.”
