well, yes, of course. we being the heavy duty thinkers. :razz:

saxon was baffled by how many NAKED PEOPLE there were. and why were they all naked? and why could we look at all these naked ones here, but not on TV?

lol! kids.

Like Saxon, it became apparent to me at an early age that classic art is dominated by nudes - fat ones nonetheless. Those angel cherubs in that church I attended when I was a wee lad would be considered child porn today.

how true! well fed little porkers, aren't they!

mind you, most of the women were, too. and definitely rump heavy. i wonder if the body type has changed or the taste in nudes?

It's possible body sizes have changed in our modern times, but there is said to be an epidemic of over weight people. Nude models these days appear emaciated. I don't think there is a shortage of good food, but there may be a shortage of good taste.

you know.... in 1965 i was sweater shopping in london. i could not find a sweater in womens' sizes to fit my 140 lb, broad-shouldered frame! i had to go to a men's store!

times have, indeed, changed!

Ya, men go shopping for panties and bras to wear these days. And I don't even want to think about who goes into what restrooms. It's all very surreal.

while in paris, i needed to use the toilet, so off i go, pay my $1 and get in line. the line was there because they were cleaning the men's, so everybody piled in onto the women's side. kinda funny seeing a whole family sitting there waiting for their turn.

You have to pay? I haven't seen anything like that around here since I was a teenager.

lots of pay toilets in europe. this one is free, which is very considerate:

the way they work is, you go in, do your thing and leave. the door then locks closes and the whole interior gets sprayed with disinfectant. means if there's paper on the floor, it gets wet and stays there. usually not a problem. no toilet seat and of course, the toilet is wet, the floor is wet, the walls.... luckily there is also an alarm that goes off if you step in before the cleaning cycle, like i did - before reading the instructions... :eek:

Any port in a storm, I guess. I like the idea of self cleaning, but can't imagine sitting down on a wet seat.

one just grabs some butt wipe and dries it up, but ideally, one would not sit down on the sodding thing anyway; i mean, who wants their butt disinfected? i used to carry those seat covers in my purse, but they're a pain, too.

Around here I've not seen any public toilets actually located out in the public streets. It must be a European thing.

they're around in canada, but none too prolific. best bets are your malls.

Malls and restaurants are where I've seen a majority of the public restrooms. Those, however, are not self-cleaning.

oh, right you are, can't think of anywhere else i've seen the self-cleaning units, but here. frankly, i'd be perfectly happy with seat covers...

Glad to see the originals. There are other originals (i.e. cast from the same molds by the Rodin shop and signed by Rodin) at the Soumaya Museum, the publicly exposed part of the private collection of Carlos Slim. Here in México City.
