  • Yes, It is okay to pee in the shower!

    GEORGE: Aha. Aha. Could it be because you don't want him to know that you have a friend who pees in the shower, is that it?!

    ELAINE: No, that's not it!

    Bathroom with toilet is the kind of shower that George Costanza would love. Demotech, a Netherlands organization, promotes unique solutions to improve lives. They propose a family unit bathroom that can accommodate bathing and sanitation. (Drawing by Demotech.)

    But wait—what's so unique about that? I have two of those "units." You probably have at least one as well. Many people in developing countries don't have indoor plumbing. They walk to fetch water and use an outhouse or maybe even the great outdoors to relieve themselves. The family unit that Demotech proposes is basically a closet-size area where you an throw a bucket of water over your head but you can also remove the drain screen and pee or poop down the same pipe used for the bathing water. George Costanza would be welcome here!
