China's Gigantic Toilet Waterfall Has Citizens Flushed With Pride


When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you 10,000 recycled toilets, urinals and bathroom sinks, make a 300-ft long and 15-ft high Toilet Waterfall. Artists in Foshan, a city in southern China's Guangdong province, did just that in order to attract visitors to a ceramics trade show.




The trade show for pottery and porcelain product manufacturers took place on November 26th, 2014 but it would be a shame to disassemble the ginormous construct after only one day โ€“ it must have taken weeks to just gather together the 10,000 recycled bathroom fixtures. You read that correctly: RECYCLED, and presumably cleaned before being reused.




Then there's the time and labor required to affix the toilets to a sturdy (hopefully) backdrop, angle each one so they drain properly, work out the pipes & plumbing... Foshan's citizens had best get used to hosting the world's largest โ€“ or even ONLY โ€“ toilet waterfall in their town. One imagines they're flushed with civic pride. (via ECNS)
