I would have quite liked to, but I was sufficiently disorganised as to not mention the trip to NY until now, several weeks after I returned.

I was also feeling rather like a social leper; I was fearing social contact at the same time as regretting not having it. I believe there's some sort of psychological concept which outlines how you can have opposing ideas in your head at the same time, which may well describe it quite well. 

There's also the feeling of "not wanting to impose", which may be a bit of a British thing.

Maybe next time, as I'm bound to get shipped out there again at some point...

I'd enjoy the company.

As to the "psychological concept which outlines how you can have opposing ideas in your head at the same time;" F. Scott Fitzgerald called it "genius."

Next time I hear that I'm getting shipped off to New York, I'll definately be in touch.

Toilets by ucblockhead (4.00 / 1) #4 Wed May 31, 2006 at 06:46:19 AM EST
New York != all of the US. In California, most are the same as in the UK. (For water saving issues.)

Interesting by stark (4.00 / 1) #8 Wed May 31, 2006 at 07:04:54 AM EST
I would imagine there is a website which would inform me of different toilet designs used across the world, from hole in ground to the latest Japanese models.

[pause]

I love the internet.

Interesting idea by Merekat (4.00 / 1) #12 Wed May 31, 2006 at 11:22:25 PM EST
In Eastern Europe, many toilets follow the small amount of water model, but with what could only be described as an inspection shelf from which your leavings are flushed.

I have yet to encounter two French toilets that are the same.

L-Series lenses are great. by Ignore Amos (4.00 / 1) #5 Wed May 31, 2006 at 06:51:56 AM EST
I'm thinking about selling a kidney so I can afford one.

Go for it by stark (4.00 / 1) #7 Wed May 31, 2006 at 07:01:29 AM EST
I've only had the opportunity to use this one L-series lens, but based on that I'd say it's easily worth a kidney.

I'm considering persuading the gf to get pregnant so I can sell the baby and buy a wide-angle...

Philip Greenspun seems to think ... by Ignore Amos (4.00 / 1) #11 Wed May 31, 2006 at 11:05:05 AM EST
... that your lens works well with a 1.4x teleconverter.

The wide-angle gets a good review here too.

Photo diary limitations by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed May 31, 2006 at 09:24:15 AM EST
Hulver put a 50 meg limit on the # of files you can have on-site, which can crimp your photo-diary style.

Personally, I've taken to posting the pictures else where and just putting the links here. A much gooderer solution all around.

Knock, Knock.

I believe by stark (2.00 / 0) #10 Wed May 31, 2006 at 10:42:04 AM EST
that I can get around the space issue, but as my photos tend to be only about 100k it shouldn't be a problem for the first couple of months.

US toilets by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #13 Thu Jun 01, 2006 at 02:35:38 AM EST
Wow, that is really wierd. What if you've got a saggy arse, are you just expected to sit in your own faeces? I'd imagine that a bulky floater could come uncomfortably close to your scrotum. And what a waste of water!

It's political correctness gone mad!

Indeed by stark (4.00 / 1) #14 Thu Jun 01, 2006 at 03:58:31 AM EST
I don't believe the saggy arse/bulky floater issue could be a serious problem, otherwise many NY residents would have a permanent hygiene problem. I agree that it's a huge waste of water but they're one of the few places in the world that don't seem to be having any water supply problems at the moment. I should point out that this approach does also have the side benefit that pan-staining is reduced.

Despite all that, I still find it repellent to be able to see huge logs floating around when they should really be all mushed up together, hidden by loo roll...
