Thanks, whatever the Russian equivalent of Obamacare is!
The Sochi Olympic committee has a pretty conservative stance on what constitutes acceptable bathroom usage, if this sign tweeted out by Canadian snowboarder Sebastien Toutant is to be believed. You are allowed to sit and expel waste. And that's about it. Too bad for you if you're one of those guys who prefers to stand while peeing, because that is strictly forbidden!
It is also forbidden to squat over the toilet the way that a gargoyle defecates. For obvious intolerant, anti-gargoyle reasons. While we're at it, let's just go ahead and ban puking, injecting oneself full of heroin (one of which often follows the other) and, most confusingly, fishing. And, while this isn't officially forbidden, I'm going to recommend against ordering the fish at local restaurants.
