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.

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.
