Some Aussies have even suggested turning to the nation's political leaders to right this atrocious wrong.
While others have questioned whether the water level is intended as a means to cool your genitals? Like a foot spa for the penis?
There's also this theory, which suggests perhaps the aquarium-style loos are intended to shame you into confronting what you've just expelled from your rear.
