The glass is transparent until you latch the door. [DrCurry, Aug 13 2006]


       I don't know. It might look a bit shitty.   

       (Changed my vote to a +ve. A toilet made out of Classic Coke Bottle glass might look attractive. Interestingly, contemplated while I was on the can.)

       Funny, don't remember eating that...

       Glass is too breakable. Instead I was thinking of a pyrex toilet instead of glass. Pyrex is a crystal clear ceramic like material that looks like glass but is much more durable. Also, it should come with a matching plexiglass or polycarbonate toilet seat.

       A while ago it occurred to me that virtually all mechanisms would look better transparent.   

       We already have glass lifts, transparent computers, mobile phones and other electric equipment, and more besides.   

       This idea developed when the flush on the cistern broke. The short-term solution being to remove the lid and do it manually.   

       I remain to be convinced about the bowl however.

       I remember seeing a film about a public convenience, in Manchester I think, where there were large glass cisterns placed high on the walls with tropical fish in them.

       I recieved an email (now ling since lost) with photos taken from inside and outside of a public convenience situated in the main square of some European city. The walls were one-way mirrors so that the visitor could shit and admire the splendid view.

       late sunday night i caught a few abysmal minutes of a goldie hawn movie called 'protocol'. i started watching it half way through, but the scene had her family coming out onto the porch carrying an entirely perspex toilet made by her mad grandpa or some other such thing. for some reason they asked her to join the government and then for an equally unexplainable reason the see through toilet exploded.

       That's my favorite movie.

       oh dear. maybe i just caught the abysmal bit.

       You are going to have to be more specific. That happens in every Goldie Hawn movie.
