You kind of have to be thankful for indoor plumbing. Can you imagine having to go out side to the little shack in the back yard every time you had to do your business? Everyone has I'm sure had to use something similar at a park or an event. The worst part has to be having to see all that stuff just below the seat. Never mind the stench!
So you have to wonder why when a contractor removes a toilet from the basement floor, why doesn't he have the plumber seal the opening. I mean he must have gone to a park once in his life, right? He has got to know that stuff at the bottom of the hole isn't pudding.
