European toilets a mystery to many refugees

German toilet solution for refugeesUnsafe at any speed…

    No mystery here, the Muzz are shitting on the infidels, plain and simple. They don’t need more toilets, they need to be sent back to the shit holes they came from.

    • Ha!

    • What’s the word I’m looking for? Sorry, can’t find a descriptive term for this in the English language. Oh yeah, speechless! Or maybe, psychedelic?

    I love the tale of the Paki Mahoundian in his first day on the job in Canada. Soon into his shift he asks the boss for a bathroom break. Then he comes back and says “I don’t know how that works”. The boss says “You sit and do your business, then you push the handle”. There comes a huge scream from the toilet, the boss knocks the door and the Mo says (Paki accent) “Every time I push the handle, I get a huge pain in my testicles”. The boss opens the door and says “You Paki idiot – you’re sitting on the mop pail”.

      It’s not just Middle Easterners, North Africans, and Pakistanis that are stumped by western-style toilets. Chinese people dislike them because they think they’re “unhygenic”. You have to experience using one of their own abominable squatter-style public toilets to appreciate how truly ludicrous that is. What seems to gross them out, especially Chinese women, is the idea of actually sitting on the seat, even though when you think about it, all the seat comes into contact with is the backs of the thighs, IF one sits right down on it the way they are supposed to. To me, this is what makes the western toilet a design marvel, a perfect marriage of both comfort and hygiene. But it only works if everyone uses it right. At the college where I work I have to regularly wipe down toilet seats with soap and water because of all the finicky little princesses who can’t bring themselves to sit down on them properly but instead squat over them and end up “sprinkling” everywhere. They don’t even have the courtesy to flip up the seat, because that would require touching it.

        One of my first jobs involved a lot of janitorial duties. Don’t let those princesses fool you, brothers. Their restrooms were always in a fouler state than the men’s.

          BTDT and you are absolutely right.

            It’s not just the disgusting toilet habits; it’s the poor hygiene in general. I have the misfortune of having to share the facilities with the students and I often see young women go straight from the stall to the door without washing their hands, or when they do wash their hands, they rinse them with water for a couple of seconds. They don’t like to use the soap provided because it’s “nasty”, or because they just can’t be bothered or don’t have the time. There are also antibacterial hand cleaner dispensers outside every washroom but I’ve never once seen a student using one. So it’s no wonder these students are constantly getting sick; the flu is rampant at my college in the winter. I try to explain the nature of virus transmission to them, as they all seem to believe that disease-causing pathogens are all airborne, or the old wives’ tales about cold and wet causing illness, but it just goes over their heads because surely what their mothers and grandmothers always told them must be right. Something very fundamental seems to have been missing from their high-school science education. BTW most of these students are from Mainland China where I lived for four years, so none of this is surprising to me.

    Hardly surprising considering the shitholes they come from…did a hole in the sand and heave-ho…eidiots

    The article certainly has plenty of head-slappers…”Islamic countries traditionally use water to wash.” So what do non-Islamic countries wash with, yogurt?

    It’s true that Muslims find the idea of wiping yourself with dry paper nasty. However, what they do as an alternative remains something of a mystery to me. I have heard they are supposed to splash or spray water on their bits, although the means of spraying water are rarely available in public toilets unless one carries a little spritzer bottle around, and “splashing” water would be awkward too…where is the water supposed to come from? If one is using a western toilet, you could reach down into the bowl (after flushing of course), but squat-style toilets have no standing water in them…when you flush them a bit of water comes out but rarely enough to flush away all solid waste, which is one of the many reasons why they are so horrible to use. I have used many in my travels in East Asia, and they never become any easier or less unpleasant; squatting is hideously uncomfortable, esp. when you are afraid of losing your balance and having to touch the inevitably filthy floor, or your clothes touching the floor. And they NEVER have any toilet paper, either. You learn to carry your own pack of tissues there, or, if you’re lucky, there will be a vending machine at the toilet entrance where you can buy a packet. Never any soap, paper towels, or hand dryers, either. Assuming that public facilities in the Middle East are no more luxurious, I confess I felt rather dizzy upon reading that Muslims are supposed to use “their fingers” in the cleaning process. Yes, I know it’s only supposed to be the left hand, but….eeuuuww.

      I’ve worked in Turkey. Hotel rooms had western style bathroom fittings, in fact they are now exported from Turkey to western Europe. In their government offices, it was a different story. One restroom I used had six stalls; all except one were squat toilets (shallow ceramic pans around a drain, within which were raised ribbed foot positions, and a water flush lever on the wall behind it). No toilet paper, but a tap on the wall to the side of the squatting position, and a plastic bucket and jug. You poured water into a cupped hand then splashed it up against your ass, wiped with your hand and repeated until clean. The exception was the end stall, which had a western style pedestal toilet. It was being used as a janitor’s cupboard and the toilet basin was where they stood the mops and brushes. Some restaurants with western style toilets had, instead of a tap on the wall, a valve beside the pedestal that sent water through a small bore copper pipe (brake pipe size) bent over the back rim of the pan, as a make-shift bidet.

    It would be cheaper to export this technology, instead of importing muslims to use it.

    I am waiting for the day that our city council installs these at City Hall and starts installing them in all government locations. I have no doubt they will do this eventually.

    I can bet there will be no public announcements because they know Canadians will not be pleased either with the unnecessary expense or the with us being forced by our social-engineering politicians to adapt to the foreigners.

    But perhaps the communists running our schools will be the first place this starts.

      If they ever do start appearing in our washrooms I’m sure there are all kinds of creative ways to sabotage them.
