We’ve all been there: wandering the city streets of a foreign town or hiking through the hills of a nearby mountain when nature calls and we’re left in an uncomfortable position. With a full bladder and nary a Starbucks in sight, we can be caught off guard and unsure where the next relief station will be. Thankfully the minds at toilet paper company Charmin developed an app that assures users the nearest toilet isn’t too far away.


Sit or Squat is Charmin’s bathroom-finding app that doesn’t find just any bathroom; the app is programmed to pinpoint the locations of clean, public, free-to-use toilets with a rating system based on the restroom’s tidiness. Those marked with a “sit” are clean enough to sit on, while those marked with a “squat” should probably be approached with caution.


Once you’ve done your business, you can rate the toilet you just used via the app, cluing future go-ers into whether the experience is a pleasant one or whether it should be skipped for a cleaner environment.


Sit or Squat is available to download for free from the app store for iOS users or from Google Play for Android users.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
