Professor Tardly Explains: A Place for Managing Smells

If you boil all of its functions down to a single purpose, that's what the bathroom is.


Every fixture in the room - bath, sink, and toilet - is dedicated to eliminating unpleasant smells and/or replacing them with pleasant smells.


The majority of all scented products are kept in the bathroom. Most are used to manage the smell of our own bodies, while some are for managing the smell of the bathroom itself, or of the whole dwelling.


In ancient times, the various functions of the bathroom weren't centralized in one space.The Romans bathed in public bathhouses. Some high civilizations had plumbing with varying degrees of sophistication, but, until the late 19th century, most people relieved themselves at a discrete distance from a habitable building.


The story of John Crapper inventing the toilet is a myth. His name was Thomas, not John. Thomas Crapper, a plumber, purchased some patents and made improvements. He didn't invent it:

While Sir John Harrington is credited with the invention, it was Alexander Cummings that received the first patent for a flushing water closet....

I'm a proponent of shitting outside.

I believe in urinating around the edge of your property to mark your territory.

I like the cut of your jib, mister.


Have you seen these new convenience store restrooms that have the soap dispenser, faucet, and hand dryer all in one unit? They even have waterless urinals in those places now.

Are those the ones with the weird shape?? Like the three sided shape?? The kind you totally can't wash your hair in?? Not sure if I've seen one, but seems familiar. If so, I don't like those.

They look like this:

Everything is up close motion activated, so it would be extremely hard to wash your hair in it.
