Chinese Authorities Employing 'Two Fly' Rule for Public Bathrooms

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(BEIJING) -- In an effort to boost the level of hygiene in Beijing's public restrooms, Chinese health officials have instituted a rule that only permits two flies, or only two users, in any public toilet.

The BBC reports the cleanliness rules also seek to regulate the emptying of trash bins and even monitor and improve bathroom odor.  The standards are meant to improve the conditions in bathrooms most frequented by tourists, which in many cases are sorely lacking to say the least.

What's not known is how the "two fly" policy and the other regulations will be monitored or enforced.

Famed French Actor Relieves Himself in Front of Airplane Passengers

Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images(PARIS) -- French film star Gerard Depardieu caused quite the scene aboard a grounded Air France flight Tuesday, when he unzipped his pants and relieved himself in the aisle after being told he couldn’t use the bathroom until the plane was airborne.

A passenger told the New York Post that Depardieu said, "Je veux pisser, je veux pisser."

"Then the attendant said, 'I'm sorry, you'll have to wait fifteen minutes, [when] we'll be in flight. The toilets are locked,'" the passenger explained to the Post.

The plane returned to the gate so the crew could clean up the actor’s mess.

The passenger who spoke to the Post claims that Depardieu had been drinking.
