Well, being someone who,

1: Hates public loo's,
2: Especially the sit down types
3: cant 'go' if others are around me

Then seeing this filled me with dread, and then laughter - as I will never be using them!!

That's just wrong on so many levels - way to make the tourists all welcome and comfy Russia :td:

Sorry, but I'd have to be very close friends with someone in order to 'chat' with them while sitting on the loo.

The pics are missing the basins needed for throwing-up into.

Sorry but that´s wrong. This pic shows a typical conference room at the European Council based in Brussels.

I also do have a terribly childish habit of laughing at people farting, especially if I DONT get to smell it.  Id probably not be able to go at all hearing others  let off a bit o steam   :lol:

I was in hospital once about 20 years ago, on an all male ward...for a week... I was probably the youngest as many were pensioners for hip operations and similar...my first day/night was terribly boring, but when the nurses turned off the main lights at 10pm, the others started to doze off. After half hour or so,  some man entering sleep let of a long lazy fart...the few of us reading or lying awake looked at each other and smiled.  Then within a few mins, another fella farted quite loud...and some of us began BIG cheesy smiles and silent laughter...and as more guys dozed off, the farts came thick and fast...I lost control and was in hysterics

the ward nurse popped out of her office to see what was going on, and me with the hysterics trying to tell her what was funny,  when I finally did, she muttered it happened all the time and gave me quite an odd look for finding it hilarious  :w00t:

Funnier still it happened every night after main lights out, and every night I laid waiting to see who'd go first. yeh I know, but it was 20 years ago.

It was just as good the fart scene in Blazing Saddles actually

Reminds me of a public toilet I have recently seen in a Korean subway station. This is rather cute, though, as it's meant for a mother and her child:

ROFL

Am now imagining sitting next to someone who decides to dump all of their problems onto me. I hate when fellow crappers do that.

I can't even use the bathroom if I hear some vague distant chatter, let alone do it sitting right next to someone.

The worst are surely those 'vocal' crappers.  Hearing someone scream one out is damned disturbing.  And that splashing sound will remain in memory!

I have a friend who is sometimes calling me while holding a 'meeting'. :no: And sometimes he is adding some faint sounds.

And yes, I told him numerous times to please not to do this.
