2nd Century, Roman. Ostia, Italy. When you say public toilet, THIS is a public toilet !

Check the roll before you go is what I always say!
And – now there is poopouri for when you really gotta’ go.

There is so much at which to be careful they should not call it a “rest” room. On the other hand they sure do have it right calling the doctor’s office a “waiting” room.

Love your gentleman’s guide. But I think you might have forgotten one more thing: to recommend even gentlemen to sit down in an airplane lavatory… Oh – or is this the subject of your next guide? *chuckle*
Well done! 🙂

I am not qualified. Last time I was on a plane it had a propeller and two wings.

Hilarious. I hate when there’s no toilet paper. I just hate public bathrooms. I got trapped in one once. I had to crawl under the door to escape. It was a trying experience.

Per the photo obviously humans in centuries past weren’t quite as phobic about their natural bodily functions as we are today. Actually when I was growing up (years and years ago) in rural Virginia…everybody’s outhouse but ours was a 2 seater…so I understand about communal toileting. And since there was plenty of land around our homestead if an extra toilet was needed…you dug a slit trench albeit in a secluded place…preferably not in the poison ivy (another story) 🙂 loved your post Carl 🙂

Ooooh, that poison ivy. I got covered with it and the blisters are just healing after 4 weeks ! Looks like were are all getting stinkified by the poop coming out of Washington, DC.

They have the same ones in Ephesus. 😀 Wonder if the drainage links? 😀

Perhaps some of Paul’s letters will disclose that.

Ha ha! 😀

We woman deal with the same challenges and then some.
I can only imagine.

Maybe Julius “Squeezer” left a couple of “Cicer-olls” in that old cistern..
June 3rd, 2015 at 15:19
I think Flavius Poopus wrote about that.

But all of his works were wiped out.

The church says salvation is by grace alone not works.

Now that’s some logic you can really use.

You have to be up on this stuff to cover your butt.
June 3rd, 2015 at 09:48
At least it’s well-ventilated…
June 3rd, 2015 at 15:21
Good point. Ancient people were smarter than which we give credit. Of course lack of privacy was the trade off.

You never know what you will find at your blog!
I surprise myself sometimes. Stay tuned.

…make sure edge of counter or sink is dry. My favorite. Great post, Carl.
As one of seven kids, who lived in a small house with one toilet I know all about waiting.
