February 18th, 2012

In most of the countries where I've done my business, there are toilets. We often take them for granted, as we use them everyday. Unless something breaks there's no need to think about toilets. In my upcoming travels, I'll probably be in places where I'll not be using toilets. Having done my far share of hiking, this will be nothing new. In fact, if you're lucky I have a really shitty related story (hah!) But let's take a moment to raise our glasses up! Cheers to toilets! And cheers to blogging about toilets! I'm sure this is the first but not the last toilets blog.

Let this toilet be an excuse for some toilets pondering. 

My big brother owns this toilets. He fixed the bathroom so that you can simultaneously wash your hands and also feel dirty while washing your hands. Or at least, my first time felt a little naughty. If you're wondering how the toilet and sink work, then ask someone who knows anything about plumbing. But I'll try. When you flush the toilet, the water that would normally fill the top of the toilet basin* flows through the sink tube. You wash your hands with the clean water that comes out of the sink. Then the soapy water drains into the top of the toilet. Again. When you flush, the water that is in the toilet basin is then whooshed into the toilet bowl to push away your excrements.

*By the way, I did some research and there doesn't seem to be a term for what I called the "toilet basin."    ...    Just double checked and it's called a tank. Yep, should of that of that or known that. But I like toilet basin better.

My cousin in Atlanta has a toilet just like specially ordered to save money and the environment. Every time I go to her condo, I think it's weird that it hasn't caught on, but I thought that about the 2 button flushers in Australia too.
