Bathroom Ideas

Hat tip to Stormin for sending these in:

A public bathroom in Houston, from the outside:

Now that you’ve seen the outside view, take a look at the inside view:

It’s made entirely of one-way glass!  No one can see you from the outside, but when you are on the inside, it’s like sitting in a clear glass box!

Now would you?  Could you?


A painted bathroom floor in a home on the tenth floor of a high-rise building.  Imagine you are there at a party, and you have to visit the bathroom.

You open the door, and…remember, it’s a painted floor….


Would you be able to walk in?


Last but not least, a ceiling mural in a smoker’s lounge….
