Tuesday is World Toilet Day

Tuesday, November 19 is World Toilet Day. (Seriously.) Anyone in need of a charitable cause, please consider helping establish basic sanitation in developing countries.

And that's the poop.

Re: Tuesday is World Toilet Day

Considering the fact that every year several millions of people die from infections caused by bad sanitation, that's definitely a worthy cause.
Btw, did you know thata Dutch author and senior member of TrekBBS wrote a very interesting newspaper article on the history of the toilet?

Christ, that logo (at scotpens' link) is a hoot. The W becomes a dude on the dumper. So much talent, glad it's not being wasted.

thanks for the link! What a cool idea! Working in the waste water business I'll pass it on to my bosses. It'd be fun to have each of our offices in that twin programme.

The world needs to learn more of the works of Thomas Crapper.

That's a truly strange article, with its talk of ballcocks and manholes. Toilet humor, I guess.

It's fitting that Crapper lived in Anerley.
