In the east, and I guess the middle east, they have ceramic 'troughs' that you straddle over.

Um...maybe it's me, but if you wash your hands after you've used the toilet, aren't you pretty much going to wash off anything that might have been on that handle?

True, but then you've got another problem: the sink's faucet handles were touched by people with dirty, disgusting hands!!

I was in a bathroom someplace sort of recently where they had toilets that you flushed with your feet. Maybe Switzerland in the airport.

Those IR automatic flushes drive me nuts. Something about the way they're tuned means that somewhere on the order of half of the times I use one, it will flush while I'm still sitting there. Startling, to say the least, and especially annoying if they have one of those high-pressure flushes.

I think I register weakly on those IR things (I have a hell of a time getting IR sinks to dispense water, too), so they eventually notice I'm there, then think I've gotten up if I lean a little bit forward.

Magus - Just think of the above as a bidet.

I also find that they flush either too early or not at all for me.

So, it seems my cheapo clothes washing machine has decided to
occasionally leak.

This finally gives me an opportunity to buy a decent washing
machine... at least, I hope it's a decent washing machine.

I bought a Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 top-loading washing machine:

Here's what ePinions has to say about it.

(Or, for the text folks:

No way, it give you an oppertunity to repair!

I hate those IR flushies. WHen I lean over I always get a delightful cold
splash to the cheeks.

But everybody uses their feet, and feet are strong, esp if you're
losing your balance, you may very well be putting most of your weight

on it.
Now when the thing starts to leak because it was pushed out of
position or pushed way too hard. , who's fault is that?

Theirs of course. same with how I always kick the toilet seet down because i'm not touching that either (and it doesn't need to be put up unless youc can't aim because of the slot on teh front of it ! and you cant' get to the valve with it lifted.

unknown, but this one university had them in the dorms. Students not

of foreign descent could often be heard falling off the toilet seat, as

they tried to straddle the seat with their feet in some insane
balancing act, not realizing that you're supposed to sit on it.

That happened at prodigy quite often with our consultants recently from india. Worse than falling off, sometimes they miss.

I dunno, I never kicked a valve in a public toilet. I never even
considered it. But now I know who to blame for all those gross,
flooded bathrooms.

SEE!?!?!? It's the engineers who design faulty/flimsy valves! :-)

Ok, I'll bite: what does a "non Western" toilet look like, and how
does one go about using it?

It looks like a normal toilet seat except it's sitting on the floor, and there's a hole in the ground, or a pipe to flush the poop away. They don't have running water, usually you pour water from a bucket to flush it away.

I think what fleeb meant to say is...

"One shouldn't weld metal in a condominium."

or

"One's condo board shouldn't find out about welding metal in a condominium."

Israel's part of "The Western World". The division doesn't have that much to do with geography.

I know. My dad says they had a few here in the late 50s.

When my mom was here in '65, they were already 100% gone.
