Toilet area

China has just unveiled what could be the world’s largest restroom – a towering 4 story building with over 1,000 toilets spread out over its 30,000 square feet. The restroom complex includes both indoor and outdoor toilets, some that can be viewed from nearby (I wonder if this is an attraction for some users?). Many toilets are custom made or unusually shaped, and some areas also have TVs and “gentle music” according to Lu Xiaoqing, an official with the area tourism bureau.

As an extra attraction for tourists, locals are hoping the bathroom will be certified as the world’s largest by the Guiness Book of World Records soon. They also expect people to come back for more … as stated by Lu: “after they use the bathroom they will be very, very happy.”. Right.

CNN has more info + a video of this crazy place. Via The Presurfer.

Funny law breakers

And that’s not to say, law breakers who are funny as much as it is to say, those who break funny laws. Two British fellows got their hands on a list of 25 absurd old American laws and decided to break them each, then post a photo journal of their misdeeds:

You can get arrested for that!

It’s a funny read, though if they think that there are only 25 weird laws in the US, they are sorely mistaken.

A few of my favorites (all from my home state):

No one may stand on the sidewalk on the 500 block of Illinois Ave in Carbondale.

Chicago: Law forbids eating in a place that is on fire. Also, it is forbidden to fish while sitting on a giraffe’s neck.

I love this one: In Evanston it is unlawful to change clothes in an automobile with the curtains drawn, except in case of fire. What?!

Look up your state (if you have one) and share your favorites, there are too many for me to go through by myself!
