Update 2 (July 11): The entires keep flooding in! Akhil Tandulwadikar points me to a wonderful see-through loo in Switzerland. Aspi Havewala writes in about a loo in Amsterdam that ensures “process control.” Mitesh’s entry would, on the other hand, make one lose control. And the noble Peter Griffin points me to The Good Loo Guide and The Bathroom Diaries, whose Golden Plunger Awards have rewarded many beauties.
Phew. I need a toilet break after that.
