Disqualify!

It's funny how even though it repeatedly backfires on them, they keep trying and trying and trying, not only using the same tactic, but relying on exactly the same quote. Because, as you surely know, anyone who dares to make a factual observation is raciss. Ergo, disqualified!
When I point out that he was intentionally baiting a person of color with a term that has racial overtones, his answer sounds positively gleeful. “I’m calling her a half-savage because I know it’s going to offend the crap out of her,” Beale says. “She’s going to run around screaming ‘Racist! Racist!’ for the next 10 years.” A beat, and then he adds: “I don’t consider all black people to be half-savages. I mean, some people are. Here in Europe, for example, we have actual proper Africans, not African-Americans. This leads to problems, like people shitting on top of the closed toilets. They don’t know how to use indoor plumbing, OK? This is not civilized behavior.”
She seems to seriously believe I was making that up or something. Not so much.


Fed up with having to clean up messes in the public toilets, a Swiss railway company has come up with a series of graphic illustrations for visitors from Asia and the Middle East to instruct them how to sit on a toilet seat.

The pictograms, that have appeared on trains in the popular tourist destination of Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps, instruct users to sit on toilet seats rather than to squat on them and to discard used toilet paper in the lavatory and not in the waste bin.

“It happens that guests mount the toilet seats to do their business – and sometimes they don’t know where to put the toilet paper,” said Roger Joss, director of marketing for the Mount Rigi railway at Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland.

The Swiss tourist board has also accused foreign tourists of defecating in the shower.... In March last year, Lloyds Bank’s Old Broad Street office in central London also put up instructions telling foreign staff how to use the loo, with details such as ‘sit on the toilet – do not stand on it’, and ‘please flush it with your hand and not your foot’.


Those of us who aren't parochial Americans who have apparently never traveled outside their little white enclaves know that many immigrants really don't abide by civilized standards. I have not only seen the above signs as well as the occasional shit left on the toilet seat, I once watched a pair of Africans spend 7 minutes carefully studying a roundabout before getting back in the car and going the wrong way, very nearly causing a head-on collision as they took out the floral arrangement in the center.

This is something we are supposed to believe is a good thing? A sustainable thing? A progressive thing? A desirable thing? How is the West going to help the rest of the world in the future if it becomes the rest of the world? Do SJWs just really enjoy train stations and restaurants that smell like shit?

As for Jemisin, I note that she is still doing exactly what I expected her to do. It's already been, what, two years? It's not my fault she's an easily predictable half-savage, any more than it is my fault that the, shall we say, differently civilized find it difficult to master indoor plumbing and roundabouts.

While there are some awful practices brought in (ever find a bucket of water beside a public toilet because people use their bare left hand instead of toilet paper to clean their asses? - the water is communal and rarely changed btw - that's right, re-used and shared ass water) some of the items mentioned have other explanations:

- flushing with your foot? Sure. You don't know what kind of filth is on that handle.
- hovering over a toilet? If possible. Some public toilets you just don't want your bare ass to touch. (not sure about standing on the toilet though, wtf?)
- I've heard that some areas, even in Europe, encourage people to not flush their toilet paper, but to throw it away instead. Worried about clogging the drains? Get bigger drains people, keep the shit out of the garbages.

I don't have to remember that. I lived in Japan. Some facilities in France and Italy are still set up that way. But I didn't sit on them just because I am accustomed to sitting on a Western toilet rather than squatting over a hole. How do you think failing to figure out how it works is a defense?

VD,

Do you call her a half-savage because you are assuming she knows how to use Western public facilities correctly? Is that a safe bet?


Obligatory Asia story: public washrooms here are "burn before entering, nuke yourself afterwards" kind of event. Even after many years of colonial rule, the locals are still coming to grips with how to use them correctly. I once found fecal splatter all over the toilet and up to six feet off the floor. I figure the squatter must have been doing backflips during his bowel symphony.

Also, throwing toilet paper in the trash is the norm in many parts of the world because, as stated, the plumbing just can't handle flushing it. I try to avoid those parts of the world.

Great read so far. Despite being generally familiar with the subject-matter and having read lots of reviews, reading this feels fresh. Nicely paced prose and very evocative scenes, such as the one describing the dread a hypothetical upper/mid-level corporate worker feels when targeted by SJWs.

To the people who excuse them because they're unfamiliar with our technology and customs: I wonder if they'd excuse me if I went over to Africa and did everything my way, making no effort to learn their ways?

No, I didn't think so.

Having grown up on a farm, I've been knee-deep in shit. I've driven a manure spreader across a field, feeling small bits of it hit me in the back from time to time. I've hung head-first from the waist into a septic tank, while jamming a snake up into the sewage line to break free an obstruction. I know shit, and I'm not easily grossed out. None of it was any fun, but you do what you gotta do.

But several years ago at the county fair, I headed down to the outdoor shower at dawn to clean up before the cow show on Saturday morning, and discovered someone (presumably extremely drunk) had mistaken the shower for a toilet overnight. That's disturbing in a way that a whole pit full of manure isn't. What's the point of building cities and trains and things if you still have to watch where you step?

That's what I don't get about the defenders of these idiots. I didn't know about squatting toilets when I did a semester abroad in Japan. The first time I encountered one, I figured out how to use it in under a minute.

The other side of the coin is, what does it say about a person who thinks nothing of leaving their own shit behind for someone else to clean up? You really expect to form a trusting society with someone who has so little concern for others?

Heck, if a roommate ever left dishes in the sink for longer than 24 hrs instead of rinsing and putting them in the dishwasher, they'd find them in their bed. If one of them had done this to my toilet...I'd be in jail now for how I would respond to that.

"I have yet to see the barbarians shit on the toilet seat, but I have observed used toilet paper in the trash can."

When I used to travel to Ecuador, I was always glad I never had to use the bathrooms that often. Their sewer pipes have such low pressure that you had to throw your used toilet paper into trash cans. I'm sure with Correa still at the helm as presidente for life that they have yet to fix those pipes and probably never will. Also, can only speak to Ecuador (never had to crap in a public restroom in Nicaragua, thankfully) but be sure to bring your own toilet paper if you're stopping at a gas station because they don't have it! You can buy it inside the convenience store...yeah, learned that one the hard way.

"public washrooms here are "burn before entering, nuke yourself afterwards" kind of event."

burn before entering, nuke yourself afterwards, lol.

"Having grown up on a farm, I've been knee-deep in shit. I've driven a manure spreader across a field, feeling small bits of it hit me in the back from time to time.

Cail, sounds like a shitty upbringing and occupation you've had there.

"That's disturbing in a way that a whole pit full of manure isn't."

It reminds me of one day sophomore year of undergrad (IIRC I was not on janitor duty that day) someone had dropped a deuce in the urinal. That disgusted me unlike anything else and I've a) field dressed multiple deer (including gut shots) b) been in an OR when cauterizer is in use and c) had a cauterizer used on me. Just thinking about said poop in the urinal makes me want to gag.

"You haven't live until you have stuck your arm up the south end of horse to your armpit. "

What about your whole body like don Cortino in Mafia! ?

"Here in Nebraska - Nebraska! - there are certain small towns taken over by Latinos working at the meat processing plants. I mean taken over, literally."

My senior year of undergrad I did a field research class, polling Mexicans (the vast majority of whom were illegal aliens) on their political preferences. There was a town near where my university was (in Indiana, fyi) that was overrun by illegals. Just as a friendly reminder to anyone who may be in doubt, there is nowhere you can run in the United States where there AREN'T illegal aliens (this includes Hawaii and Alaska).

I have 'traveled' all over the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and (less pleasant) parts of Africa...this post was like a spike of PTSD for me. I've had to "dive" ship's sanitary tanks because of rattles or clogs...and NOTHING from that experience prepared me for my first time in an Egyptian public restroom at Karnak -- and get this! They had ONE OF THOSE SIGNS IN THERE.
When people ask me what I remember most from Egypt, I jokingly say, "Well...there was a lot of rat shit, cat shit, dog shit, donkey shit, horse shit, camel shit, pigeon shit, chicken shit, duck shit, goat shit, sheep shit, mouse shit, and even some elephant shit. Oh, and lots of people shit, too...on nearly every public horizontal surface." More memorable than the pyramids. Really.

Analysis of the picture accompanying http://www.wired.com/2015/10/hugo-awards-controversy/ This depicts a composited war scene.
'Red Team' is at the left, 'Blue Team' to the right.

There is one humanoid robot, two 'war of the worlds' type walkers, one flying "Sad Puppy Hugo"rocket w/porthole, one or two 'military' platforms (brown-gray at right). There are a total of 16 probable organic lifeforms, interpreted as

5 female white-ish humanoids (including one cat woman)
3 male humanoids (one white/asian at center, two unidentifiable at top
8+ alien/fantasy creatures- 4 on Blue Team and 4+ on Red Team

Four of the females in Blue Team to the right gaze in anger at the single Red Team male in the center, who looks back intently and possibly angrily. The red woman is shooting a fire-weapon at him. Catwoman hold a gun w/finger on the trigger. The fifth female, attached to the Red Team male, is non-human, looks back at the other four females dispassionately.

The other two men have their heads chopped off by the picture cropping. They were advancing toward the right. They have both just been shot, one through the chest and the other though both legs.

All 3 of the men are under fire, with 2 down, one left. None of the 5 women are, unless the ambiguous three missile/bombs in center are for them. What is the story being told here?

In Afghanistan, a lot of military base services were provided by Indians and Kenyans, who shared the bathrooms with US service-members. There were signs in all the heads saying "DO NOT DEFECATE IN SHOWERS. This is what toilets are for."

There was green alligator shit and longneck goose shit, some humpty-backed camel shit and some chimpanzee shit.

On a more serious note, children who will take care of their elderly parents often come to a breaking point, when the parent is no longer able to control his or her bowel movements. Then it's off to the nursing home. So, good news: the more shitting in the home, the easier for making those tough decisions.

I saw this very sign in a restroom in Mariposa,CA this past spring. I asked my friend who was from Merced if it was some kind of joke. He said,``No man, it`s for Jap tourists.``

Notice Wallace's use of the term "Team Humanity." I am reminded that the typical American Indian language calls members of its tribe "human beings" or "the real people" or some such, and non-members "enemies," who can be plundered, raped, tortured, and murdered whenever the 'real people' get a chance. It's nice to know that Wallace doesn't consider those who differ from her politically to be real human beings.

Cail Corishev @ 57: "Obviously the answer is to remove all the toilets. Americans...can learn to squat over a hole in the floor"

It would be interesting to see what would happen when squat toilets come up against the ADA...perhaps a latticework of hand rails? A block-and-tackle setup, maybe?

38 years ago I worked with a guy who spent a couple months doing a hashish tour of India. He, too, described the little pail of brown water and said he didn't have a solid, formed poop the entire time he was there. Small wonder. Checked off another place in the world I have no interest in visiting...

"Screw that. I always flush with my foot when I'm not at home. Thousands of shit-covered hands have touched that handle!"

yes... well you didn't just shit all over the closed lid you were squatting on did you? and then flush with the shit covered foot?

Good thing I took an extra trip to Italy instead of being talked into going to Egypt to see the pyramids. Anyone that still has the pyramids on their bucket list will stay away due to the moslems now.

People who live in the South have many fewer decisions to make. No toilet, no lid, no seat, no handle -- such complex machinery would only confuse the toothless yokels in any event. They are happy using the communal sump, where there are two footprints on either side of the hole in the ground.

Went to Bangalore on a business trip 4-5 years ago, and decided to stop in the ladies room before boarding my return flight. The line of women waiting went out the door & around the corner as usual, but stalls with squat toilets were not being used -- the Indian ladies were waiting for the Western toilets.

Squatting is the best way to take a shit, end of story.

Sitting on the throne is more doable for fatties, they just have to sit there for a half hour praying they can pinch off a couple nuggets before they blow an o-ring.

I've seen toilet seats with shoe prints on them. I've seen muslims in the restroom with their feet in the fucking sink at my state capitol building. There's no excuse for that.

Shitting in a hole is better physiologically, but if you expect the guy after you to sit down on your dirty footprints and crap splatter, you're an uncultured asshole.

I remember reading an article in a liberal paper, Dallas Morning Snooze, about a company that put lettuce farms just over the border in Mexico. They were shocked to discover the workers were pooping and stuff in the fields even after they put in porta-potties. They had to teach them to use the porta-potties and toilet paper.

That reminds me of the main library at my old university. The muslim students (who had only started cropping up in the last year) used to wash their feet in the bathroom sinks. The whole floor ended up covered in filthy water, the sinks themselves ended up covered in dirty water and the whole bathroom stank. Then after Mohammed was done proving he had no consideration for other bathroom users he would start praying in the bathroom hallway making it difficult, if not impossible, for any other person to get to the bathroom.

I remember the history of WW2, specifically desert warfare. It turns out one of the allies biggest advantages was in the area of waste management. As a result, the German/Italian army HAD to keep on the move because of the disease they would create just by staying still.

That story stuck with me as I went through boy scouts' training as to why that happens and how to prevent it. Turns out, these standards are created in response to hard environmental factors, technology available, and proximity. Once those things change, a certain degree of retraining is necessary... It isn't an insult to do that. It's just life.
