Sit or Squat

Sit or Squat is a website that tells you where bathrooms are. If you walk a lot (photowalking, site-seeing) or just live in a city with walking built into your day, this is an excellent resource and perfect for your phone.

The Birth:
Sit or Squat was born on October of 2007 as a silly little personal blog. In September of 2008 it became something bigger, much bigger.

The Story:
The act of relieving oneself is somewhat an artform. It is rarely talked about yet we do it everyday. If we are home, most of us feel comfortable enough that the process doesn't even faze us. However, the real dilemma comes when our personal space is not our personal space. This dilemma is commonly known as, public restroom. A few drops on a toilet seat can set off red alerts to one person while another may not even blink an eye. We've all got different taste and where we put our bare bottoms can certainly be a priority.

Sitorsquat.com is a site that is dedicated to telling you where the closest place to relieve yourself is and whether or not that place is worth even sitting or squatting (or standing) at. We all find ourselves needing a public restroom every once in a while, whether it's walking down a city block or driving on a highway with a few whining kids in the backseat. This application is designed to be viewed either on your computer or your mobile device.* It functions worldwide as it is based on Google Maps. The toilets on Sit or Squat are submitted by anyone The site can be personalized for each member based on their needs and preferences. A member is also able to create a list of their favorite toilets as well as share them with their friends. As time goes by and more data is recorded, the site will continue to get more accurate in ratings as well as more options in places to go. We all need to relieve ourselves everyday, so the chances of it being somewhere other than your home are pretty high. So for that reason alone, we bring you sitorsuat.com.
