THE DANGER OF PRESSURE TOILETS
A friend of mine (Yes he is real and he's trained 1 level off being a Master Diver which his Dad happens to be) is an avid diving fan and diver. He's usually found complaining about how the diving mask in Finding Nemo sinks despite having a floatation device on the back of the strap
...But anyways he's a diver.
One time when diving from an underwater habitat (Pressured living space for divers to live in so they can get used to greater pressure and thus go on from there to do deeper dives) a member of the team disobeyed several safety rules relating to the pressure toilet.
At this time ill explain how a pressure toilet works, basically it has an inner lock and an outer lock. You do your business then press a floor plate that opens the inner lock, then you release it making sure your business has moved through. Then you COMPLETELY leave the toilet before pulling a lever ment to be too far away from the toilet to be pulled from sitting. This opens the outer lock and jettisons it into the sea, such things being bio-disposal. All this has to be done dry for reasons to be explained.
Well this lazy guy came in from a dive still wet and used the Pressure Toilet before drying, then after he pushed the floor plate he couldn't be bothered standing up. Somehow he managed to reach the lever from the toilet seat (Apparently he was REAL tall) and in doing so accidently stood on the floor plate...
Fact 1 : The water on him formed a seal around the toilet seat
Fact 2 : The inner lock was open
Fact 3 : The outer lock was open
Fact 4 : ALL the pressure acting on the habitat was now sucking at his butt
In the split second it took him to remove his foot from the floor plate and his hand from the lever, his lower intestines and colon had been sucked out BUT were STILL connected...
In the end he went up in a quick depression vehicle face down on a gurney with his various trailings hanging out into a shopping bag he was holding
