Double Toilet

Ah yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Winter Olympics are finally here.  Starting on February 7, 2014 and ending on February 23, 2014 the XXII Winter Olympics will be held at Sochi, Russia.  For those of you who are Roman Numerically challenged, XXII is the same as 22.
 
Speaking of the number 2, do you know what a bathroom stall looks like at the Olympic games next month in Sochi?  Look below:
 
This is the double-toilet stall in the men’s room at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Everybody, Somebody, oh what the heck – ANYBODY Please tell me what the hell is going on here?
 
What is the purpose of having two toilets in the same room without some sort of divider/wall/barrier?  This absolutely baffles me. 
 
Here are some of my thoughts after seeing this:
 
This is for those happy couples who have to do EVERYTHING together.  They can’t stand (or sit) to be separated.
 
Russia “only got” 50 billion dollars to make the Olympics happen so you know they had to cut corners and save money (and some politician had to make FAT money on this deal).  Therefore here is the result of cost cutting.  And you thought India was bad for cutting corners.
 
You know that you are always being watched in Russia, so one toilet is for you and the other one is for the military police.  You get no privacy!  Anywhere!
 
Perhaps this is a new sport at the Olympics.  Synchronized bowel movements. Would prefer that it be played at the Summer Olympics though.  It’s gotta be brutal to go through this at freezing temperatures.
 
Russia is known for trying to reward the lower walks of life.  Perhaps this new Olympic sport – the defecathalon (similar to decathalon) is the only sport where someone can get a gold medal for a “crappy performance”.
 
Why is there a trash can in the middle of the two toilets?  Why is there no toilet paper?  Exactly how is this supposed to work?  Oh my…I just vomited a little bit.
 
I guess I can be positive and say - Thank God they are not facing each other. Or built like the pic below:

  2. Now you know that Russian food doesn't do well with most people's stomachs.
    After one plate, you'll probably run to the bathroom and end up painting the toilet a totally different color.
    That's why we have a spare white toilet in the same stall.
    Doesn't everyone know that already?

    Regards,
    Vladimir Putin

  4. I am laughing now imagining the things you have 'explained' here!

    Synchronised bowel movement?!

    I think I will stop here, commenting on each an every sentence. The comment by 'Vladimir Putin' tops the laughter here!

  6. Thanks for your comments Vladimir. Does the Russian food, you mentioned, include spinach pirozhki also?

  10. Maybe it's a backup - if one breaks, the other one is already ready. No need to call contractor and fix it! Built-in Redundancy :)

  11. Ha ha, you are always being watched in Russia, thats a good one SG!! Kalmadi must be feeling sad as to why this brilliant thought never occurred to him...

  12. Thanks for your comments Rajesh. That's a good one.

  13. Thanks for your comments Reshma. Yes, Kalmadi would be feeling sad now. If given another chance, he would put one Western and one Indian toilet side by side. He would have even installed a faucet for running water and provided a bucket and jug. He is way ahead of his time. Only problem is there will not any running water. Pump would be dry.

  17. I would love to see if a Russian posts a comment.

  18. Very funny!
    A really strange concept, maybe it is meant to confuse people who are in the toilet, left to solve this puzzle, while the Russians go and win lots of gold, silver and bronze medals for themselves.

  19. LOL at your humorous thoughts:)

    On a serious note, am wondering what could be the reason for two in one.

  22. OMG!! This cant be true!?!
    What were they really thinking when they made these toilets!!
    Hilarious read, SG :D

  23. Full of humour.Before the first flush tank gets filled, the second one another person can use, as Russian food allows fast flow of waste.

    Or there may be a blind-folding dual sport.

  24. Funny! Best part is the write up explaining the merits/demerits:)

  35. Double toilets :P ... Hhahahhah ... you know this one time in chicago, these washrooms had the one way mirror doors, wherein sitting inside you could watch everyone around... phew, that was a nightmare for me :P :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for your comments Menachery. One way mirror in the bathroom? Glad it is from sitting inside. That is scary. Next time we should check one way mirror is not from the outside. Thanks for the warning Menachery.
