Sitting while pooping is for the weak. The strong use squat toilets. If you’ve never had the pleasure of a squat toilet, you don’t know what you are missing. Rather, you’ll know if you’ve missed right away. Squat toilets allow you to exercise your leg muscles, practice your agility, work on your aim, and encourage you not to dawdle in the bathroom. No time to waste in the land of squat toilets!
I also could not help but to admire the efficiency they provide. All the amenities of a western style bathroom with two-thirds of the plumbing required and two-thirds the space. We could clean the toilet area while showering at the same time. Innovation at its finest.
Some of what I overhead:
- “I’m losing my balance!”
- “These things should come with instructions.”
- “How am I going to wipe?”
- “This had better be shower water in here!”
- “Oops, I dropped the soap….can I get a new bar.”
For the real talented: Tryout the squat toilet on a moving train.
