I was visiting the home in Barrow, Alaska of my two new buddies, (two men who shared a house) and asked to use their bathroom. They were quite embarrassed as their toilet looked like a normal western toilet, except that it wasn’t connecting to any pipes and didn’t flush. Inside was a plastic bag, and this particular bag was full to the brim. Once a week you put all of your “honey bucket” bags outside and a truck came and picked them up.
