2014 Sochi Olympics: This squat toilet requires deadly accuracy (Photo)

Consider yourself lucky you’re not trapped in Sochi right now for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

We’ve seen the horror stories about hotels. We’ve seen the uncomfortable toilet situation. We’ve seen it all – or so we think. Every time you assume it couldn’t get any worse, it seemingly does as Rob Elgas of NBC shows us.

Yesterday we learned you couldn’t flush toilet paper, which seemed pretty bad. Now it appears some in Sochi will have to deal with a ‘squat toilet’. The name says it all.

Seriously, that just looks uncomfortable. Would it have been that difficult to put a standardized toilet in the hotel room? I mean – not only do you have to maintain your balance while doing your business, but you also need the accuracy of a sniper or you’re going to have a disaster awaiting you.

Of course – I guess that’s better than having nothing at all (which is what some have reported) but there has to be a better solution than that. You know, maybe like something to sit on.
