Skip to comments.Olympic bathroom stall with two toilets raises eyebrows

SOCHI, Russia, A photo of two toilets side by side in a Sochi Olympics bathroom stall is causing a stir, with an opposition leader calling it an example of mismanaged funds.
The photo of two toilets in a men's bathroom stall at the Olympic Biathlon Center, which went viral after being posted to Twitter by a BBC correspondent, led social media users to joke about officials spending too much money on toilets and not enough on stall partitions, the Moscow Times reported Thursday.
The photo of the toilets indicates the possibility of an even more awkward situation, as the stall's sole roll of toilet paper is only within reach of one of the commodes.
Opposition leader Alexei Navalny said the picture serves as evidence of the government mismanaging much of the $50 billion budget for the upcoming Olympics.
It’s kind of like using deer corn - It’s a TRAP!
What, you never heard of the 2-Man Luge?
one for #1 and one for #2
and I guess this is a “unisex” toilet ???
As long as the occupants carry PooPourri, it should work out... :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKLnhuzh9uY
The ads for Russian Cialis are a little different, eh?
These would go well in San Francisco
only in a communist (or recovering communist) country is this possible. In the good ol’ US of A there would have been someone who said “hey, what’s wrong with these plans?”
I have a few unrelated comments on this.
1. The Love Toilet, per SNL.
2. Why the concern? Men seem to have no problem pulling it out in front of other guys. That is pretty standard pub(l)ic bathroom behavior. Don’t hand me “it’s different”. It is all about modesty, and if you have no modesty in the front, who cares about the rest?
The Larry Craig Memorial Public Crapper — eliminates the need for.those awkward toe taps and hand gestures while you eliminate
(Similar unit installed in White House private quarters for Barry-Reggie hookups.)
This is for women, who always go to the bathroom in pairs anyway.
I’m actually more surprised that they’re not facing each other.
[ This is for women, who always go to the bathroom in pairs anyway. ]
Some do, some don’t, I don’t...
But I have always been a loner.
no this is confusing.
actually the picture posted here was a special built toilet (or more correctly turlet)for the possibility of Chris ‘KristieKreme’ Christie, visiting the Olympics
They got the idea from "The Love Toilet" on SNL.
It’s a wide stall for those with a wide stance.
About as good an idea as the two story, stacked outhouse.
Kind of remember an ‘open’ bay atmosphere in boot camp and on some Naval Transports and prisoner would not mind the extra facility in their holding cells.
Also, remember the two seater outhouses....
One time a guy went in and was doing his business in an already occupied 2 seater and as he was getting up two quarters, a dime and 2 nickels fell down into the steaming receptacle.
He calmly reached in his pocket and threw a 5 dollar bill after the change.
His mate said
“You must be crazy throwing that fiver away!!”
“Crazy?, don’t think I am going down there for 70 cents do you?”
LOL. For most men bodily functions are private. There is no conversation in the men’s room when business is being done. Maybe while washing hands or standing in line, but never during the biological business at hand. It’s very rude.
You might be surprised at the lengths men will go to for privacy when they HAVE to sit down. :o)
First the gay mafia was whining about Putin not being hospitable to the homo crowd. Now their complaining when he does. Which is it?
Where are the handles on them things?
I bet they are those auto-flushing types. That as you “lift off” - they flush.
I hate those toilets.
Hey that’s much better than Bali.
Its called a hole in the ground surrounded by “misses”.
NEVER got to a public toilet in Bali!
NEVER GO to a public toilet in Bali!
They should have installed a Ferguson.
*BA-WOOOSH* Now that’s a MAN’S flush.
What the Fluke?!

The Elvis movie, Follow that Dream
So one guy is sitting down for a dump and the next guy is standing next to him taking a leak?
They should have installed a Ferguson.
*BA-WOOOSH* Now thats a MANS flush.
I wonder if that’s the kind of toilet they have in a public city park that I frequent. Its kept very clean but when you flush the toilet; its like Niagra Freaking Falls.
It sends like 50 gallons down the bowl at some 350 horsepower for almost a minute (slight exaggeration).
The cool part (or very weird and disturbing, depends on how you look at it) is the blowback. The intense water pressure is going downill mostly. But there is enough to wash down your backside as well. Wipe up - dry off - and Boom! You’re done.
That toilet is NOT for amateurs. I think they lost a small child down there one time.
Not to ruin the fun, but I’m pretty sure what happen happened here. They forgot to put in a wheel chair accessible toilet, so they choose the easiest way to make one. If you look closely you can see they removed the partition between the toilets.
This makes total sense in the context of preventing gayness during the olympics. Without the partition, it is impossible to bore a glory hole.
Sometimes you just can’t please anyone, no matter how hard you may try....<: <:
The Damsel who shall persevere with me here till dawn after Burrito Night shall prove my One True Love.
Synchronized pooping ... the newest Olympic sport.
I doubt that is the case here and I have no explanation for what happened here. However, I am certain that a moron is involved.
If they are so private, they’d insist at least a little wall between all those urinals, preferably a whole closing stall! Whipping out members in broad daylight next to another guy is not my idea of private!
alternate theory....the plumber grew up in some Soviet-era apartment block where open stall communal bathrooms were nothing unusual.
Knew somebody that lost his security badge that way. He was in the middle of his after-lunch constitutional when it fell off his lanyard and went right between his knees into the bowl. He sat there for a couple moments working up his courage, knowing he was going to have to go in after it, because he did NOT want to have to report how he lost his security badge. Rolled his sleeve up, took a deep breath, and stood up. FLUUUUSH! He had completely forgotten the auto-flush. Then, he had to go report how he lost his security badge...
Some moments are not meant to be shared or witnessed. This is one for me. The toilet differs from the urinal, because nobody looks good ‘providing the necessary personal care’ to themselves after use of a toilet. Is that descriptive enough?
Some sit back-to-back and are called "Pilot to Bombardiers.' Some sit side-by-side and are called "Pilot to Co-pilots"
As a one owner-operator of one, I can tell you that the 'holes' are not for company, but comfort and safety. One of them is sized for adults; the other is smaller & set closer to the front; sometimes even lower, to keep the younger kids from falling in. It's the outhouse version of a potty chair or 'booster seat'.

Now that was funny....
