Why do Europeans call it a water closet? That makes less sense than bathroom lol.

I go to the pictures, not movies or film.

My toilet has a shower in it so I interchange.

Wanker is a fantastic word!
It can be used as a friendly banter term when taking the piss out of a mate, or an insult, or a descriptive term for personal activity.
It's a great word.

Nope I'm practical so understand having toilet + bidet would be unrealistic due to space constraints. I do however expect a bidet/toilet hybrid which performs both functions in one unit.


Those exist already.

Wait....! Youre gonna have to explain what a bidet is to him...!!!

*Powder room: referring to ladies reapplying their makeup powder/w mirror
*Crapper: Named after John Crapper who invented/modified/created the modern day "toilet"/w bowl/flusher
*Lavatory: a place for "explosions"(?) *unclear about that one....
*John: see above about Mr. Crapper
*Loo: havent a clue what the hell that refers to
*Bathroom: place where 75% of toilets can be located in homes, where is found tubs and wash basins/showers
*Restroom: in many restaurants, clubs, large buildings...one can find couches or chairs to sit in as well in rooms for "toilets"
*Outhouses: because they are outside
*CAN: refers to toilet 'cause of the lid...like a can
*Potty: same reference as the "can" ie: "pot"

The one I like is the "water-closet". Its got water alright, but the closet part.....?

Well, when you and Grain leave you can come here and I would be proud to let you take a whiz in my restroom.

I suppose one would have to try to laugh if a "friend" were to remove urine from their bladder.

And you complain about our slang?

Haha

Slang is different though, 'restroom' is a thing in itself these days...just curious, what do US folk call a place where you actually go for a rest, a toilet?
