  Everyones gone to the loo!

My "warnings and dangers" highlights the dire state of
French public (in)conveniences

National pride at stake, having lost the Olympics, France intends to show the world a clean pair of, er, cheeks.Exasperating contradictory people they are, the French have installed the ultimate super-loos, in Nice Airport.

Far from the expected missing loo seat and absence of paper, I was pleasantly suprised. All seemed in place - but what followed was pure science fiction. After use, a robot arm emerges from the wall and clamps down onto the loo-seat ,kerchunk, click . I watched in amazement as the O-ring shaped seat silently revolved 360 degrees, a micro-spray cleaning and disinfecting everything in its path, zzzzkerchunk, done. Germs be afraid, very afraid. A high pressure powerflush double blast then followed, ensuring everything porcelain was gleaming white and pristine. Crikey, what next? Is a laser beam going to mistake me for a germ and - pppfftzzz - I'm toast?

As you approach the handbasin, "the tap knows you are there". Move your hands towards water and water flows, perfect temperature. Take your hand away, it stops. Military grade precision movement sensors.

I emerged into the terminal waiting area, cleansed, refreshed, and not a little shocked, . Revenge for Waterloo: Watercloset! The French have really excelled themselves this time. Merde!
