The Sochi Olympic games have already endured an incredible amount of controversy ahead of the opening ceremony and it seems nothing is sacred when ripping apart the Russian preparation for the games. From the United States having to park warships outside of Russia in case a quick exit is needed to the accusations of homophobia, the Sochi Games are not off to a great start and not even the bathroom is safe from scrutiny.
Photos of the toilets to be used to the Sochi Games are starting to circulate around social media and it has a lot of people thinking they’re seeing double.

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who sees two toilets — because there are two toilets. The allegations of corruption as to how the Russians spent their $51 billion on the Olympic construction could end up being summed up in this one photo. As The Washington Post put things, it’s not that the Russians have too few toilets, it’s that they apparently have too many for one stall.
We all laugh now, but these uncomfortably close quarter toilets have the potential power to bring about a global bond that results in world peace — so maybe they aren’t as stupid of an idea as they seem.
