Mr. Toilet Passes On

Sim Jae-Duck, founder of the World Toilet Association Assembly (motto: “Toilet is life.”) has passed away. In addition to spearheading efforts to improve worldwide sanitation, he also built (and lived in) a giant toilet-shaped house as a way to bring publicity to his cause (an interesting alternative to awareness bracelets). According to the AFP, Sim was born in a restroom – in line with then-traditional beliefs that this would bring good luck. (For more on buildings shaped like giant stuff, see the Longaberger Headquarters.)
