Transparent Toilet Walls

Recommended Posts

Just saw this bargain £1.2 million apartment for sale in Birmingham:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-26394529.html?premiumA=true

The last 2 pictures clearly show the bathroom has glass walls and is effectively in the lounge.

I can't help but think this is impracticle if you've dinner guests or you're dating someone for the first time and brought him/her home?

Anyone any thoughts on whether glass toilets in the lounge are a good idea, or whether they are worth the £1 million price premium?

I'm working on a joke that adapts the phrase "People in glass houses..." but I'm struggling.

That's that special glass that you can flick a switch and make transparent or opaque. You pull, you go back to the flat, bird disappears to the bog, flick the switch - might be the only look you'll get. Better safe than sorry eh?

If you look carefully at picture 4, you also get a gimp in a latex suit at the bottom of the stairs, it is a 'special interest' flat only for those with discreet and discerning tastes.

Has anyone told The Masked Tulip yet?

Great, host a dinner party, guest goes for a quick leak and there's a power cut. Opacity turns to transparency. At least if it was at night you'd be safe.

I've never understood the appeal of spiral staircases.

I'd want a bit more than a rinky-dinky little staircase in a space of 3300 sq ft.

That has really cheered me up, i.2Million for a flat in Birmingham absolutely fantastic. Goodness me I don't think anyone would pay that for a house in Edgbaston let alone there!

I would love to know who the builder/sellers are, they should be respected for their sheer audacity. Can someone print this out and give it out in ladywood it'll riaise a smile

You don't need to look that carefully.

I would agree that it is deeply unattractive and overpriced.

However if you look at the photos and the brochure, there are four en-suite bedrooms, one of which, the master bedroom, has a glass walled bathroom.

The bathroom is not in the lounge.

Four bedrooms would normally mean a house for a wealthy large family - but of course they would buy a large semi in Edgbaston; green and leafy but almost walkable to the city centre.

The only obvious use I can see for this is an upmarket brothel.

City centre location, nice en-suites, good reception area.............

Maybe the gimp is an encoded symbol for what this is used for; like the minature sun in British spies' passport photgraphs.

Now you've said it I think you may be right. What's the gross / net yield on a brothel then?

Having purchased that apartment I guess random strangers and passersby would like to see what a giant dick looks like.

Is that a bidet next to the WC ?

The switch to opaque may be linked to a motion detector.

Not good feng shui with the bog like that and also a spiral staircase does very bad things with the chi.

Only the Australians or Japanese could imagine such a device.

p-o-p

Surely this was put on the market with footballers in mind, who else would have the combination of so much money and such poor taste.

I'm working on a joke that adapts the phrase "People in glass houses..." but I'm struggling.

I once saw a stand-up comic who had a nice patter in shortened proverbs or maxims.

One of his examples which I remember is, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't."

BTW, I think there is a typo in the advert, which should refer to the supplier Silent Gliss (not Glass):

1.2 million and no seperate kitchen. That bathroom leaves me speechless. I was in a trendy NY hotel with a glass walled bathroom, they had put curtains up next to the toilet. Unpleasant.

Art's glass toilet tests courage

I guess it's to condition people in case they have to serve time for mortgage fraud, I also see there's no soap holder in the shower.
