    When you gotta go, you gotta go. But for eight dollars a day?
    A New York company has started marketing what amounts to an upscale pay toilet service. Posh Stow and Go will offer visitors to the Big Apple “clean, safe and soundproof” bathrooms worthy of “the greatest city in the world,” in addition to such other amenities as “luxury showers” and private storage rooms.

    Prices for the Midtown facility, which is set to open around June, start at $24 for a three-day pass (or $8 a day), plus a mandatory $15 annual membership fee. The company envisions opening other locations throughout the city—lower Manhattan is next on the list—but warns that “only a limited number of memberships will be sold so as to provide the best possible experience.”

    It's madness IMHO. However some folks believe that to pay for such a necessity is now a "necessity". :eek:

    That's pretty common in, say St Petersburg, Russia where I go every year. No membership required, it costs about 50¢ to get in. Not the cleanest or freshest places there are, but would do if you really have to go. But in NYC there are always so many Starbucks that no need really to spend any "bucks", although their toilets are not quite the "star" level.
