Nice Things About Switzerland #1: Toilets


There are always spare toilet rolls in Swiss toilets, which are normally spotlessly clean.


'Please use me.'

See the spare rolls? In England, they'd be stolen or used to clog up the toilet.
See the graffiti? No? Exactly.

(There's an amusing story behind this photo. Ask me about it next time you see me.)


Twin Toilets



Meanwhile, the setup in the above picture is becoming more common in Central Europe. Not sure if it's spreading to other parts of the world. It's a twin toilet for women who don't want their bowel movements to interrupt their non-stop flow of bitchy gossip. I'm pretty sure twin toilets is how the decline of the following empires started: Roman, Ottoman, Cylon.

  1. The reason there is no graffiti in the toilets in Zurich is because the graffiti artists have used up all their paints on the walls outside!
