Reflection of Disgust

On Saturday, Thom, Amoeba and I took a tour of the USS Bowfin, a WWII submarine. I caught a reflection of Thom in one of the shaving mirrors.

Thom reflect

In case you were wondering what put that look of disgust and horror on his face, it was this:

USS Bowfin toilet

A very cramped, not so privvy, privvy on the USS Bowfish. Thom thought it looked more like a torture devise than a toliet, and the lack of a door on the stall only compounded the horror for him.


  1. I’m sure I would have had the same look on my face. Yikes, that does not look at all comfortable nor private! Clever, funny post!

  2. hi Quilly lol imagine trying to do ur business in there LOL, thanks for sharin the pics, well done… hope the move was a success.x

  3. My look would be quite like Thom’s. We visited a sub in Charleston — very cramped and claustrophobic, and with a tiny potty, too, but without all the extra pipes.

  4. LOL…You are very sneaky…You knew exactly what I was thinking…well that and I just happened to tell you ROFLMAO!! Was a great time. Great photo, subject matter debatable, LOL but excellent reflection 🙂

He looks like he is really concentrating on something now I see what he was looking at here in your post a Torture Device Amazing!
    I am so glad you had fun Quilly stay safe, happy moving!

  6. ROFL! Oh my gosh! I SO concur with Thom! Never mind the fact that I have not YET been able to step FOOT on a submarine! WE tried to tour one in Baltimore Harbor. I had to let Dennis and his friends go on ahead. I waited it out on land!

    It’s a great reflection though! Like Amanda… I never got around to WR this week!
