WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) - While talking with a reporter covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the deputy prime minister of Olympic preparations revealed that video surveillance equipment is documenting shower activity in hotel rooms.

“We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day,” the official, Dmitry Kozak, was quoted as saying by The Wall Street Journal.

Kozak’s interview was cut short when an aide pulled the reporter away from him before he was able to ask more questions on the matter

"Sorry, comrade Kozak has been reassigned to an urgent project in Novosibirsk."

The FBI brought a video to Honeywell to show us (late 80’s as I recall.) An FBI agent posing as an American executive checks into a Paris hotel. Then he and his team take us on a tour of the room he gets. It’s wired for sound, the fax machine and shredder sent images to someplace. There were cameras focused on the bed. The computer station had a camera focused on where you’d put your keyboard. All of this was courtesy of the French Secret Service. They spy on American companies.

Some people don’t cotton to water restrictions. I’ve seen them here on drought threads.

not a big deal since the most of the showers don’t work anyway

I actually think the idea has some merit (in certain situations). In many cities, it is almost impossible to drain one’s bladder legally as no businesses offer public restrooms. This is due to the irresponsible few who vandalize the restrooms. One solution would be video surveillance of the restrooms. I’m getting to the age where I need to drain my bladder freuently, and I wouldn’t really care about video cameras if it led to better restroom access.

Bet they get a good price for it too. Anybody who thought Putin was wasting money on this has a poor grip on marketing.

Good question, but a better one is why are there cameras in the bathrooms?

I knew one fellow in college who would go into the communal shower, turn all 12 heads on full blast with hot water and then lie down in the middle of the room and enjoy the steam bath for as long as he could stand it.

Probably not YouTube, but yes... it'll be circulating before the first weekend of the Olympics is past.

,...people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day,”

A good capitalist would have installed a coin operated shower. A Fascists a bureaucrat with a stop watch. A communist a line out the door.
