Now that’s a big bathroom

Today marks the MONUMENTAL Ping #3000. Paul and I were attending special services and were happy to see all of you there in celebration. For those of you that missed it, we took notes.

I got to thinking, “I wonder where the world’s largest toilet is and what it looks like.” I didn’t have a copy of The Guiness Book of World Records on hand, so I used a new search engine called The Google to try and find out. This result from Google Maps came up and it seemed kind of lame. So I changed my search a bit and decided to look for the world’s largest restroom, which lead me to this blog post, which is a wealth of potty information. Among the gems linked up there: news that Japan’s Nippon Airlines has installed bidets on all of their planes and a link to the conference Paul and I would most like to attend (now there’s a WTO I can get behind!).

That post did lead me to the answer about the world’s largest bathroom, which is found in China, according to Say No To Crack, and may actually be the true identity of the photo in my first link. It is “a towering 4 story building with over 1,000 toilets spread out over its 30,000 square feet.” WOW. Can anyone say “road trip”?

Bon 3k and thanks for the many hours of amusement, wondering and just downright cool reading.

Ciao,

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
