Soccer riots in Brazil claimed the life of a man who was killed by a toilet bowl thrown from the stands at Arruda Stadium, the latest scene of fan violence that has plagued the country in the lead-up to next month's World Cup.

Globoesporte of Brazil reported that rioters ripped three tiolets from the stadium bathroom and tossed them from the stands during Friday night's 1-1 draw between Santa Cruz and Parana. One of the toilets struck a fan identified as 26-year-old Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva, killing him instantly.

Gotta hand it to the Brazilians, they have passion!

Maybe a little misplaced.

All-time high TV ratings, however. And the sponsors?

How big was the backpack that allowed him to smuggle the bowl into the stadium.

‘We’ are so paranoid they won’t allow us to bring a bottle into a stadium.

See? Good thing we have bagchecks at our stadiums. You can never be too safe. No toilet bowl throwing, here!

Actually, rioters ripped three toilets from the stadium bathroom, so they didn’t have to smuggle them in. But you raise a valid point.

Ripped? I was going to suggest smuggling in a carbon fiber wrench [to loosen the fixture(s) already in the stadium...]

= = = = = = = = = = = = =
That wouldn’t happen here either...most of the facilities stay ‘full’ all the time....

Also even back aboard a troop transport I was stationed on many years ago —

the troops head had a long sluice type receptacle with individual seats that could be pulled down. The ‘do funny’s’ of todays military would just ‘love’ it with a receptacle that allows a seater, a standee side by side ..... made for ‘love’....

Water used to run continuously down the sluice which was ‘ramped’ for downhill movement.

Occasionally, a real smart arse would take a roll of toilet paper (well more like sandpaper), set fire to it and let it float downstream.....

Oh, in case one was wondering, there were NO stalls, just the open sluice.....
Ah, memories......of a not so wasted yute.....

WHO would bring a toilet bowl to a game? The guy who did needs serious help.

Well, I suppose it is a good thing they didn’t have an open sluice version in the Brazil stadium. Can you imagine how many fans one of those might have killed?

The over/under on the body count for the World Cup is probably around 500..

It's going to be an unmitigated disaster..half the stadiums aren't ready...those that are completed are falling apart..

that's what it'd take to get me to watch... but if so i'd be one of the biggest fans!

the least they could do is set the ball on fire for the second half or something

They need to ban toilets, especially the high capacity assault toilets.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Due to the ‘shortage’ of potable water on an APA am pretty sure the ‘running sluice’ combo toilets were fed with salt water.
Which also made for interesting times when the APA made some of those infamous rolls and acted like a ‘bucking bronco’.

People paid big bucks for ‘bidets’ but any toilet on a USN ship that had ‘water’ in the bowls offered that service to the people using them during ‘heavy seas’.

As previously mentioned, the salt water made it an even more interesting adventure....
