The Standard Hotel gives a whole new meaning to the term “poop deck.”

Restroom users at the Boom Boom Room club on the 18th floor are completely visible from the street below as they do their business, thanks to 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows.

The toilet-sitters get wondrous skyline views. But the windows work both ways — much to the chagrin of relief-seekers after they’re told what could be seen from the street.

“The view outside is exciting, but the view inside is frightening,” said David Langdon, 55, from Melbourne, Australia. “I saw people waving at me! Sitting on the royal throne, you don’t expect a public viewing!”

Actually, this isn't the first time time I've heard of this kind of faux pas.

Couple of summers ago I was in Athens Greece and visited the new Acropolis Museum. It's a fabulous museum and I very much enjoyed my afternoon there. However, all the levels have glass floors. I noticed the problem right away when we walked in and pointed it out to the gals I was with by saying "Ladies, be thankful you all wore capri pants today" LOL. You could see right up the skirts of all the women, and a few Greek Orthodoxy priests too! LOL. Granted, the ceilings are very high, but really... not high enough! haha.

Yikes!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I'd really enjoy that view. No need for a newspaper.

A room with a pooh... :blush:

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
