The Fascinating History of theToilet
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Contrary to popular belief, Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet. But who did? Better yet, when did people first start using toilets? And were they anything like the toilets we know today? This fast-paced introductory class will explore the long and fascinating history of toilets, from ancient Mesopotamia to today. We will walk through the not-so-short history and learn things like: why we should be grateful for Queen Elizabeth I, how toilets have been useful in human conflict, and the best reasons to visit Japan and Malaysia. We will also learn about how even in current times, toilets are not so common as we often think they are, why that is, and what is being done about it - from Ghana to San Francisco. Of course, we will also tastefully touch on how you can better your toilet experience in your own home and on the road. The class will be partly interactive, so bring all of your most curious questions and taboo tales.
