You have been in this situation: an open-air event, a thousand people and a couple of port-o-john's and you are waiting. And waiting. And waiting. How can one speed things up? Quick-O-Potty: a pay toilet with a twist. You put in X cents. The quicker you do your business the greater the percentage of the X cents you get back. If after say, 5 minutes, you are not done yet, flashing light, a puff of essence of skunk, and a voice telling you have 20 seconds left. After 20 seconds, the toilet - which floor is spring activated - ejects you out and you land in a dumpster full with foam (to cushion blow and some pride).

Toilet becomes available after the skunk smell is vented out.

A box you shit in - outside. Possibly reusable... [S-note, Apr 29 2010]

       I think you'd be giving people an incentive to pee behind the quick-o-potty instead of inside of it. And once the first person has done it, it sets a precedent... (not my bone, [ ])

       this is a public event. You pee outside the quick-o-potty, you get cited by the police.

       After 5 minutes, toilet flings you into... a dumpster filled with poop and trouserless people.

       I suppose that the whiff of scent and removal to a foam-filled dumpster is better than the solution presented in the "Slumdog Millionaire" latrine scene (which is where I thought this idea was headed).

       Why not have a free market system where the more you pay the quicker you can go?

       Just out of interest, what does a skunk smell like?

See MikeD's recent post called Missing Passenger Alert. Multiply by three or four.
