comment Discounts on US Airlines Flights?
Just a "Yes" answers your question. Thus rendering it sort of a not suitable one. Any and Every company, airlines included, that runs for profit can and may introduce discounts from time to time. The best place to look is the company's website or sales brochure. If your question was about some particular types of discounts, then I suppose it would be a better fit.

comment OK we're all adults here, so really, how on earth should I use a squat toilet?
For instance, simply rewriting your opening statement to "People in some parts of India, who use Squat toilets, tend to wear a traditional piece of attire called 'Lungi', which due to it's shape and structure is quite suitable for this job" sets the tone right. Again this is just a suggestion to explain to you what I think is wrong with the answer. You may rewrite it however you fancy! It is your answer! :)

Dude, where in the article that you linked does it say "Lungi is an attire worn by most people in India"? Further to that if you even read the article specifically dedicated to lungi's, nowhere is there a mention, nor an implication that it is the most common attire. I hope you do realise that I am not trying to shoot you down here, but instead informing you that some of your statements may not be factual, and if you do not have the evidence, it is best to be open to suggestions.

I never plan to be a part of what you are describing here... but I still loved your concise question and answer! The upvote was for Darth Vader though! :D

@RoflcoptrException - Here's a proof of concept jayrefractories.com/full-images/… But the actual type and shape vary quite a lot. We had a similar one at home too when I was a kid.

I do not wish for you to delete the answer, but I do still say that it is wrong in the way it is written. You, and the people you know, changing to lungi doesn't imply that most others do. In fact if you were to pull figures, I'm certain lungi as part of an attire, let alone toilet attire, would be a minority. But if you were to now split these stats regionally, your answer would be true for some regions. The only thing that's annoying me is that your answer is implying these things on the whole of India, which is incorrect. :)

Could someone downvote this answer for me please? This answerer is quite ill-informed about the relation between a particular region's attire and type of toilets that are commonplace in the country. I could go on and on about the in-correctness, but I suppose it warrants a question of its own!
