  • Wow, that's pretty sophisticated.  I'm a little impressed they have TP in their toilets based on what I've heard of Chinese toilet habits (or lack thereof)
  • show your face to the camera, or a smartphone picture of a face to the camera, or something that vaguely looks like a face to the camera...
  • Look, sometimes you don't know how much you need until you're done with the process. How's that going to work?

  • Who would be so cheap as to steal scratchy toilet paper. Some people must be taking the bog roll home instead of buying their own.
  • Man, am I glad that said facial.
  • Now if they would only do that with concrete. Or fossil fuels.
  • quijji: Man, am I glad that said facial.


    Yep, I read that the same way.
  • Don't they all look alike over there?
  • If it's yellow, let it mellow.  If it's brown, arrest it.
  • Look, Ming, sometimes after a dinner of General Zho's chicken it takes multiple wipes to feel springtime fresh. Or, would you prefer to shake the bare hand that just wiped my ass?

    This is what was happening in one of the university dorms that I worked at during college.  Several of the Chinese international students were going into the public toilets with trash can, spinning the whole roll into it, placing beside the toilet in their suite, and using that instead of going out and buying some.
    /not getting into the students who used the trash can as a toilet (custom) or those who stood on the seat when pooping

    What did you think it was fecal? Also speaking of public restrooms and facial. Yeah, there's a punch line there some place.

    Yeah, being a former resident of said city, I'm having a hard time imagining anything remotely high tech (forget clean) in their public bathrooms.  I have nightmares about those bathrooms.

    One of the more amusing visits was me walking into a public bathroom (typically filthy) there were two squat toliets with absolutely no walls or stalls which was disconcerting.  But even further, the "toliets" were occupied by these two dudes squatting side by side doing their business no more than a foot from each other.  And while taking their collective crap both were yapping to each other like it's lunch or a smoking break.

    Fecal recognition.  "I don't remember eating corn yesterday."
  • The ghost of Chuck Berry says: "Legal bathroom cameras? Why couldn't I have lived a couple more days?"
  • I dont have a square to spare.
  • What a colossal waste of money.  Facial recognition toilet paper dispensing hardware plus staff on hand to explain the technology versus buying some more toilet paper?  Somebody's brother owns the company that makes such devices.  I usually read 'feces' when I see 'faces' but don't really have a problem with 'facial' becoming 'fecal'.  Too many letter changes needed.
  • Surprised they'd do that in China.  A little voice would come on and say "Did someone blink?  Try again to receive 3 squares."
  • CSB: The sewage infrastructure in many Chinese cities has not kept pace with growth. As a result, the sewage systems are overloaded, and citizens are prohibited from even putting toilet paper in the toilet. To encourage this, public toilets have the toilet paper near the door and baskets in the stalls four the paper. To avoid everything smelling like shiat, people would wrap their used sheets in the middle of some fresh sheets. I was at one of our plants in Xiamen with my incredible asshole of a boss, when he went into the bathroom, and comes out a few minutes later. Not only was there a Western toilet in there, but instead of a roll, they provide a stack of neatly folded bundles of paper in a basket! Watching the ashen look spread from the translator's face to the rest of the Chinese , and the back and forth glances ad they decided not to say anything, was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I kept my mouth shut, too, but I was dying inside. I wish I'd told him during my exit interview.
  • Read that as fecal recognition.
  • maxandgrinch: Read that as fecal recognition.


    Now that would make this a gem of a headline!

  • Cheaper solution: (not sure if they have any hardened for public loos, however)

    I don't get it. What was the problem?
