Most bathrooms are completely unmemorable, if you’re lucky. They are designed to let you get in, get out, and get on with your life. Those rare cases that are memorable are usually the result of a disgusting sight or smell you’d rather not have seen in the first place. However, there are a few examples where bathrooms are memorable for all the right reasons. Whether the achievement is artistic, technological, or both, here are nine bad-ass bathrooms you won’t soon forget.

9. World Of Warcraft Bathroom

It’s no secret that World of Warcraft players are an obsessive bunch. Even so, for most people, obsessions can at least be overcome during a bathroom break. But this couple decided that the MMORPG should be with them at all times, even while sitting on the toilet. I’m guessing these are the type of people who bring their laptops into the bathroom.

8. Golden Bathroom

I’ve heard it jokingly said that some people are so rich they sh*t gold. While that might not be true, some people are rich enough to sh*t on gold. Chinese jewelry mogul Lam Sai-wing used 380 kg of pure gold and 6,200 gemstones to create this ridiculously lavish bathroom, which included a solid-gold dumper. And to think, I’m still crapping in my backyard like a sucker.

7. Star Trek Toilet

When Tony Alleyne turned his flat into a Star Trek-themed wonderland, he even included the bathroom. However, I have to say that while the walls are cool, that toilet doesn’t look very futuristic. I have a hard time believing they’re still using a water-based flush system on the Enterprise. (Insert your own “to boldly go where no man has gone before” joke here.)

6. Vertebrae Vertical Bathroom

If you’re cramped for space, but you still like to poop, the Vertebrae Vertical Toilet is for you. It condenses everything you need in a bathroom (sinks, showers, toilets) into one slim column, saving on space and pluming costs.

5. Urilift

Municipalities interested providing public toilets without creating eyesores might be interested in the Urilift system. The entire structure can be lowered underground, keeping sights and smells hidden away while not in use. Of course, it would only be a matter of time until a homeless guy was crushed to death by one of these things. Even so, you can’t stop progress, damn it.

4. Pac-Man Bathroom

While the bathroom itself is pretty standard, old-school gamers will appreciate this homage to the 1980′s classic, Pac-Man. To be fair, it’s actually a Ms. Pac-Man themed bathroom. But the point is, you get too look at Pinky and Blinky while you poop, and that’s entertaining no matter what sex you are.

3. Horror Movie Scene-Themed Bathroom

This bathroom is great if you like horror movies. This bathroom is awful if you like having sex with women. Imagine bringing home a date for the first time and having her walk in on this when she goes to freshen up. You’d better hope she has a good sense of humor as opposed to a good can of Mace.

2. One-Way Mirrored Toilet

Unless you’re an alcoholic or drug addict, chances are you’ve never pooped on a public street corner. Well, this one-way mirrored toilet could change all that. The user can sit and squat in comfort, confidant in the fact that he can see out but no one can see in. However, some might argue that the real question isn’t what people can see, but rather what they can smell.

1. Aquarium Bathroom

Since the dawn of time, man has yearned for the chance to poop underwater while looking at sea turtles. This aquarium bathroom offers the next best thing. And of course, it’s from Japan. They’re so much more advanced than we are! To be honest, I’m not sure I could go with all those fish watching me.
