Lived in Beni Suef, Egypt on-and-off for about 6 months. It had the distinction of being the poorest province / county / area in the world, as assessed by the WHO. I was working for a Japanese company, and we rented an 8-storey apartment building, one man per room, and still the sewage system couldn't cope. Then the Koreans moved in next door in an identical building, and put 4 men per room. Soon afterwards amoebic dysentry broke out.

Who was it who said earlier that you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter?

That's a wrong quote.

The correct quote is 'there is a turd on the end of Gary Glitter's knob'.

I imagine the queue for the bathroom must be horrific, poor buggers must get about 30 seconds to use it befroe they have the next person banging on the door!

Do you seriously think they actually bother going to the bathroom?

What I meant was............ they don't bother going to the bathroom, as it's too much hassle to clamber over 38 people sleeping on the floor.
