The Flying Toilet


I live in a house with two toilets.

Some places in Africa, I’ve learned today in the New York Times (November 28th edition), have Flying Toilets.

The people there use a plastic bag for their “bathroom”; tie up the bag, and throw it, spinning out into the air.

Awareness of the lack of proper toilets exists—I read in Twitter that funding exists to install more toilets into countries that don’t have them.

I just wonder—how could their governments have so great an oversight on such an obvious need? Of course, the situation undoubtedly stems from more than governmental help. Nevertheless, I wish everyone could have two toilets in their home, wherever that may be.
