    I spent 6 weeks in Stalingrad in the mid 80's. The toilet facilities at the hotel were on par with what you would find at any Motel 6. I honestly didn't find the plumbing to be anywhere near as scary as it is just across the border in Mexico and miles better than it is in India and Pakistan. There are places in London, Ireland and Germany where the plumbing is not what we expect here. We have the best plumbing in the world.

    My wife knows someone who is working there helping with the construction and he says that the work conditions are horrible and that foreign workers are being treated like crap.

    Pumping waste untreated into the Ocean and Stream is so wrong when so much money will be make by these Olympics.

    I'm off Caviar until further notice! LOL

    My new favorite Sochi plumbing photo:




    Also, an interesting design idea:




    Obviously this technician didn't consult Terrylove.com on how to install the toilet seat:




    I will be insisting that my friend install the below sign in her bar:

    I had to laugh my ass off on that one.

    That is funny.


    It is nice to live where we have a old school outhouse, and a sears catalog.

    I wonder if the lid and seat lift. I doubt that they thought to saw the lid and seat in half.

    Well............the flush handle is only on one side.
    I guess it would be flushed every other time.

    What I particularly love about that photo is that the other trades meticulously did their jobs around it. The base moulding runs right to the front of the toilet and picks up right behind it! And they meticulously-cut the wallboard to completely-envelop the (closed) seat!
