Obviously the only smart thing was the phone.

An open pit toilet — I think I would learn to hold it — cell service or not.

I'm sorry. Someone tell me again how long China has been around?

I saw one in Russia. I thought they were only in China and the Far East.

Fort Benning GA comes to mind. But everybody wore gas masks inside. At least during the summer.

I got as far as "open-pit toilet."

Guess that makes me a racist. Oh well.

There were continuous flush toilets in Rome for centuries before they had to go back to pits and crapping along the roadside for centuries more. The type of people who voted for 0bama are slowly but surely putting us on a path to decline, and you may live to see China surpass us on a whole host of measures if the madness continues.

Like the old joke about the guy that lost a quarter in a pit toilet, and proceeded to throw a $5 gold piece in too.

Asked why, he responded: You don’t think I’d go in there for a quarter, do you?

It makes you wonder how long that open-pit toilet has been around, too.

I didn’t take the time to read this tale of woe BUT I don’t think it is quite the same as the Irishman that drowned in the Vat of whiskey.
At least I hope not.
Anyway this couple didn’t have to leave the Vat to go to the head etc....

They also got so scared they added to their own problem.

Someone mentioned the price of the phone 320 - if that is not USD, wonder what the breakdown is?

When I was in Japan the rate was 360Yen-1USD so 320 wouldn’t be all that much..Unless of course you were living on the local wages.

I somehow missed the part of the toilet jumper telling the story; or posting it, either. Also your logic is flawed on several other levels, but every posts serves to bump the thread.
