    How would the people in the center even try to get out to use the bathroom? They probably can't....... Ewwww!

    Did you read the article? They did tests and found ridiculously high levels of urea and fecal matter.

    I mostly looked at the pictures. I knew there was no way it could be sanitary! Apparently they don't have any kind of maximum occupancy laws there!

    I would go nuts just on the personal space infractions not to mention soaking in a cesspool. I'm afraid i would have to let a few elbows fly like Dennis Rodman comming down with a rebound!
