Default Thank goodness we're not in France

https://www.npr.org/2018/08/14/63851...dewalk-urinals

Supplementing the thank goodness we're not in Britain thread here's a thread for France. Are they drunken frat boys over there or something where they have to open up and drain the lizard on whatever random thing they can find?

Waiting for replies about how awesome this would be.

Adding pic for whatever.

I was just there three weeks ago and never saw anything like this. I hope this is a Paris thing since I only travel to southern France for work.

Well, you can drink on the street there, why not piss on it?

Why is the guy not waving? I would be.

Who gets the job of cleaning those things out? Sounds like they pull piss soaked straw out of them and use it for compost.

Where's the hole for women to sit on top?

Yet another reason to never go to France.

I'd actually highly recommend going to France. Paris in particular. Sure the people are asshats and hate you because you're American, but the city is gorgeous and has a rich history with tons of cool things to see.

Thought I grabbed a pic of it but didn’t: I traveled Europe for 2 weeks last month and saw “open” versions of porta-potties similar to this in at least Spain and Belgium at festivals. Imagine a porta-potty divided into 4 sections that dudes just walk up and pee in. It was weird seeing it at first but actually super convenient.

We lucked out in Paris and met and interacted with some friendly Parisians. Agree on visiting though, so much history has happened in that city and it is beautiful. Would definitely go back again as there is so much to still see.

The French country side is particularly beautiful, especially in and around the beaches of Normandy.

Default Thank goodness we're not in France

The problem with a lot of places in Europe and England included.... is that there are barley any public restrooms, and in a lot of cases they charge you to use the restroom. If you are not being a patron of a local pub or restaurant you have to literally hunt for a place to do your business.

We were just in London and I think at one point we spent 20+ minutes looking for a restroom. The city overall is really really dirty.... and from what I have heard Paris and France smells like piss because people quite literally piss in the street because..... well why not? You can F off if you are going to charge me to use a restroom.

We could learn a lot from European countries, but they could learn a ton from us as well. This being something we do a lot better

For people who like the super urban stuff, yes.

France also has a ton of places for people who love some of the more wide open stuff, e.g. Loire Valley, the Gothic cathedrals all over the damn place, you've got the Alps and several other ranges along the eastern border (and in the SW), nice ass beaches down south, the sites from WWII in Normandy and Bretagne, Mt St Michel is probably the single most awesome place I've ever been in my life as far as a wow moment goes.... And well, baguette, so....

So much to see and do and experience in France.

Utah and Omaha beach were humbiling, but not much remains to tie things to D-Day aside from monuments and memorials. Where things get real is visiting Pointe de Hoc where the reality and gravity of that day sink in. Crumbling, delapidated and in tact bunkers are still there and you’re able to go inside and explore the area among the countless craters leftover from allied bombing.

The one place in France I really wish we had time to visit. Jealous.

France gets an unfortunate bad wrap from Americans and I don’t understand why. Aside from the stereotypical Parisians, French people are so friendly and welcoming especially if you show an effort to speak the language. This is true for most of Europe. The country is beautiful, full of history dating back thousands of years, and the love, appreciation and respect for America and what happened in WWI and WWII and sacrifices made is still fresh in their minds, especially in Normandy. I can’t tell you how many Army Ranger, Airborne shirts I saw on French citizens, the amount of American flags flying around the province is humbling.

I'd rather see urine go down a pipe to a processing plant than pooling in a box of hay on a sidewalk on a hot day.

I had this problem in Poland. My gf and I had to use the bathroom, but we didn't have any coins on us in the polish currency. One of the locals was nice enough to give us change. In turn, I gave him $5 USD, which after the exchange rate was probably 30 times more than the cost to use the bathroom lol.

Okay, expected frat boy comments on this one and came back enlightened. France sounds like it'd be an interesting place to visit honestly.

They should try this in California except make poop boxes where you can plug your ass into it and do a #2. They can call it the "Deficattoir".

Maybe that will help with all the shit on the sidewalk out there.
