a design question

We've all been in that position where you're in a toilet cubicle (sorry) and you're holding back, waiting for the person in the next cubicle to leave. You know there's air in there and there's no telling what noise will accompany it when you relax. If only everyone would leave the room completely...

This is a well-known phenomenon. So, I have a design question: Why are toilets designed to basically amplify that noise?

I just spent five minutes listening to a guy - in effect - shitting into a tuba. C'mon designers, there must be a better way.

Again. Very sorry.

"shitting into a tuba" may be one of the best analogies I see all day.

thank you, anonymous.

in the absence of anything interesting to say, always - and I mean always - bring together toilet humour and brass instruments.
