Have you ever wondered what public toilets in Ancient Rome looked like? Of course you have. They looked like this:
It was a social occasion. You could take a shit and talk shit at the same time (sorry, I couldn’t help myself).(It just sort of dropped out.)
This is one Roman custom I could bypass, although they had many I admire. For example, I can think of some prominent CEOs, politicians, and “public servants” I wouldn’t mind seeing get tossed to the lions, provided it didn’t harm the animals in any way.
