I lived in Austria for a while and my girlfriends house had "normal" toilets but instead of you poo dropping straight down into water there was a kind of porcelain shelf where it stayed until you flushed, I never did get to the bottom of why that was, something to do with needing to inspect it for health reasons.

1) I refuse to use public toilets. Why? Because everyone else uses it. (For number 2 -sitting down :: I will use them for #1 standing up)
2) Why can't this guy just sit down anyways? How does he use the toilet at his home? Ohhh busted. He's trying to con $$$ obviously for BS.
3) I was raised speaking American English and at 29years of age, I have never heard anyone say "Loo". You mean toilet though, obviously.
Is this slang term "loo" popular in the UK? It's just weird I have never heard anyone say it before. Odd.
Anyways, I hope this guy loses the court case. It's absurd in every way possible. AND it proves our court systems are a complete total joke. Sigh...

Agreed. There were Muslims in my schools starting all the way back to elementary school when we got an influx of Jordanians starting in the late 1970's. Now we have Muslims of many varieties from all over the world and I have never heard of a single one having an issue with common restroom facilities. I've never run across any complaints out of them in the workplace either even when I did temp work for a human resources dept.
I figure it's less of a Muslim issue and more of a greed issue. You will get some greedy self absorbed jerk in ANY demographic who has that "I'm getting mine" attitude. They think the world should revolve around them and they would sue or clamor loudly to ensure it. You get that with just about any group of people. That's how the term and the image of the "ugly American" got started, after all.
I don't doubt this loo- ser will get some backing from other backwards thinking peers. But let's not let this butt wipe tarnish the image of countless cosmpolitan, progressive Muslims living in the west.
Having said all that I have not laughed out loud as heartily over an ATS topic as I did this one. As my kid said when she was four, poop is always funny.
