The other day J.K.Rowling’s Pottermore revealed that Hogwarts was originally built without toilets because wizards just pooped anywhere and then magicked it away. Below are other poo related details about other franchises that you might not know.
- Star Trek: The original Enterprise had no toilets. Kirk would poo on the floor of his quarters and get Scotty to beam it away. The rest of the crew would vaporise poo with their phasers.
- Star Wars: there are no bathrooms in Star Wars but there are small toilet robots who follow you around waiting for you to do your business and clean it up. That’s what those little boxy droids are.
- Game of Thrones. There is canonically at least one toilet in Westeros, making the whole franchise highly advanced in its sanitation practices. Peasants are covered in MUD, not poo, at least not human poo…on the whole.
- Sherlock/Elementary/Any Holmes related franchise: Obviously there are toilets in all the Sherlock Holmes versions but you’ll note that Holmes rarely (if ever) uses one. This is why Doctor Watson is so fascinated by Holmes. Obviously, he must poo somewhere but Watson can’t work out where or how — making Holmes medically fascinating to him.
- Batman: Has a Batloo for his Batpoo obviously.
- The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Again, zero toilets depicted. Now, do you understand why Thanos wanted to remove half the people in the universe?
- Doctor Who: When a timelord regenerates, any poo from the previous body vapourises and is emitted as ‘residual energy’.
- The Hunger Games: District Zero never gets mentioned but its basically the sewerage district. They never get asked for tributes.
- Twighlight: Vampires don’t ingest much solid food. What waste they excrete is via glands on their skin which react to sunlight. The waste evaporates away causing them to ‘sparkle’. “I’m just going for a quick sparkle” is a vampire euphamism for a bathroom break.
