You gotta hand it to the Russians – they know how to protect their own people.
These new toilets are easily adapted to their surroundings so they blend in with any architectural style, will be energy-efficient (optional solar panels, y’know) and will perform automatic cleaning.
Most important, these new temples will alert emergency services if anyone spends more than 30 minutes inside. That is to give you the option to be blown up from the outside by peace-loving anti-terror forces than from the inside by evil terrorists. Much, much better, I say!
This is yet another handy way to
intrude into people’s lives make yourself indispensable to “the people.” Janet Napolitano, are you listening?
Note to all habitual readers: if in Moscow, never bring a book into one of these toilets. Thirty minutes is but a fleeting moment if you happen to get lost in a good book; and then you’re well and truly lost.
