It belongs to a king of the western Han dynasty (206 BC-24 AD) and know what? It had running water much like what we have these days, except it also had armrests to make the king feel comfortable. Although, the toilet seat was made out of stone, but you have to agree that’s real advanced for those times.
• The World renowned physicist and thinker Albert Einstein was an honorary member of the plumbers and steamfitters union. How did he end up being so? Well, once he publically announced that he would rather become a plumber than having to do it all over again.
• Another famous physicist Leonard Susskind, who is now a professor of Theoretical Physics at the acclaimed Stanford University, began life as a plumber at the age of 16.
