    these were like nothing I've ever seen, or ever wanted to see....

    The first time you use one you are greeted with the sight and smell of your poo almost staring you in the face.

    I've never understood the concept at all

    my mom was posted to germany when i was 16. i was completely grossed out by this entire situation...because of the whole weirdness of the toilet, i was compelled to find out why they do things like that...this is what i discovered, although i don't have any concrete evidence to back it up with.

    during the first and second world war, most animals in germany were slaughtered for their food value. they were either slaughtered by the military and given to troops, or they were slaughtered by hungry citizens in need of food. because of this there was a great shortage of manure for fertilizing crops and such...germans being oh so inventive, decided that they could use human feces to fertilize their crops during times of great need. no animals to eat...but at least they had their turnips and shit...(pun intended)

    is this true? it sounds plausible...but like i said, i don't have any source material to point you at.
