I've been in one that was like the last picture, I shudder to recall.

Good heavens!  Does an explanation come with any of those???

Apparently not.

I haven't encountered these in real life, but as I had posted before, there are plethora of hotels that use tranparent glass or visible frosted glass or barely concealed toilet wall, I think maybe about 75% modern minimalistic hotels that I visited do that. You almost always have to kick your roommate out to the lobby or you shouldn't bunk with someone you mind seeing each other in birthday suit.

But I had encountered quite a number of scary 'toilet' before. One of the worst, I probably had mentioned this, was the one with three sides of wall, triangle shape. Their definition of wall here is thin cloth wrapping around three flimsy pole, about 10cm (4") above ground, and... wait for this, 80cm height, maybe 2-3 foot? It barely covered anything. But it shouldn't be a surprised (IT FREAKING WAS) because one of our missions (it was voluntary social work in uni) in that remote island was helping to improve the public facilities, including yes, the toilets. Luckily we girls, not many of us, managed to find another more proper toilet in the village head's house, although it has no frigging door and has low windows, we had to help each other by guarding those.

I think the most terrifying toilet I ever encountered was in Cambodia … it was literally just a hole in the ground. Under a tree, but otherwise out in the open. Fortunately, I seem to have dismissed from my mind whether I actually had to use it or not. I was about eight. Oh, the childhood memories....

Now there is a great first line for a novel.

Please spare me from publication information of the upcoming novel.

A friend told me she couldn't find a toilet there, and had to use umbrella as a desperate try to provide cover for herself.

I think no amount of umbrella, beach's or Mycroft's would ever be adequate for this nightmare.

Well, at least we now know why Mycroft always carries that brolly!  Who knows when he might need to make an emergency trip to Serbia -- or Cambodia.

He has to be careful though, his brolly got those sharp end, weapon, he wouldn't want to misplace them when he is using that as emergency toilet cover.

Today I had a dream - a crossover of The School Doomsday and The Loo Apocalypse.

I was at some school, trying to find out about the exams I'll have to take (3 Months, no idea about what the exams would be) and while running around through this school/uni building I made a little trip to the toilet. Messy as usual in my dreams, but it was the first time I remember, when I've got massively contaminated during that visit. Woke up from trying to wash my blazer. Urgs…

Earlier this week I dreamt that I was transported to a parallel Earth where trees could uproot themselves and relocate.  They typically moved together in large herds, traversing long distances.  Sometimes entire forests would stampede, leveling everything in their path.  I was just about to learn how people had adapted their housing and such to accommodate this “natural disaster,” when I woke up.

Just how many times have you watched "The Two Towers" this month? :P

I had another of those dreams… I needed a while after waking up to reassure myself: I'm 50+, I never enlisted to a class for getting a master craftsman's diploma that was much too stressful for me. and I'm not late fighting with my car. And yes, I've had dreams about missing school or exams I'm totally unprepared for, but it were DREAMS!

There are two kinds of dreams I get. One can be dramatic (recently I dreamt a whole new Avengers movie), but even if I experience them in first person, I'm still kind of watching them like movies, emotionally unattached. The other kind is when I dream a stressful life situation and it's VERY emotionally engaging and feeling real to the degree that after waking up I need time to recall my real life.

^ That's pretty much how I dream too.

Do you remember the Avengers dream?  I want to hear it, lol.

It's been three times in a row now that I've had crazy adventurey Loki dreams after posting Loki pics in the Superheroes thread, lol.  I can only recall the very end of this one because it was interrupted by two, even weirder, unrelated dreams in the middle.  Loki and I were on the run from some people; government people, I think.  We escaped the chase when we ducked into a diner and Loki used an illusion to disguise us.  After that, we booked a motel room for the night.  There was only one bed, and Loki plopped down in the middle of it, assuming he'd take the whole thing, like the snobby prince he is.  He thought the floor was too disgusting to sleep on, but apparently it was good enough for me, lol.  So we were bickering about that when I woke up.  I'm pretty sure I smacked him with a pillow.
