Toilet is da bomb

In an age where terrorism is never far from the headlines, people's perceptions of safety have changed. The idea of being "safe", at least according to the media, is under attack. But at least one knows that there's one place you can truly be safe...Beijing's bomb-proof toilet:

The construction of a bullet proof public lavatory in the capital, worth up to 800,000 yuan (about US$100,600), is under fire citing a misuse of public funds, reports the Huaxia Times.
Quite frankly, that's money well spent. Who would dare invade a country that has such technology? The report fails to mention if the toilet also has one of those Japanese-style bidets built in. And in the run-up to the Beijing Olympics, add this toilet to the list of tourist sites in China's capital. They're only following the lead of Hong Kong, home of the golden toilet.

Toilet tourism is the future.

I don't know about you...but I know I'll sleep much better tonight knowing that Prez Hu will be able to have a good thought...and some warm water shot up his bum...without the threat of getting blasted out of the seat.
