More seriously, I found this article about a couple in Brooklyn who use chamberpots because their 150-year-old apartment doesn't have a bathroom. http://thehairpin.com/2012/12/chamberpots-a-resurgence/
I have questions.
Wouldn't it be illegal/slumlording to rent out an apartment that doesn't have access to a toilet? (And one person also commented it would be illegal in New York City to dump the waste in the gutter outside?)
I assume they don't have a shower/tub either? How do they bathe? Friends'/family's houses or a gym? (Although seeing they don't ''ideologically support air conditioning,'' maybe they're that type who doesn't care about modern hygiene practices.)
