Monday Visual Inspiration: By God, if one is good, then two is better.

Vault toilet at the Mud Volcano area of Yellowstone National Park.

Guy rolled his eyes when I took this, but it cracks me up. It's like whoever was installing the grab bars said, "Listen, we're gonna make this sumbitch even more accessible! The only way this gets any more accessible is if we put a lift and winch in the ceiling!"

Grab bars do not an accessible toilet make. There are fixture heights, clearances, overlaps of clearances, door handles and hardware, and so on. This whole toilet is just....wrong. It's just wrong.

B... B... But... Doesn't it count that the up-side-down trash can was mounted to the concrete slab back when Christ was a child, before accessibility codes went into effect??? ;P

O' course, it doesn't help that the person (or persons) retro-fitting for accessibility didn't (couldn't?) read the ADAAG details... :/
