Officials in Moscow may be over-reacting just a bit to the threat of terrorism in their city. They believe bathrooms will be the next big target and are seriously considering the installation of bomb-proof latrines throughout the city.

These terrorist-proof toilets will be made from a fibrous concrete that can withstand a bomb blast. Each lavatory will be solar-powered and heated for comfort. If this plan is approved, these latrines could be installed by the end of the year.

Oh and keep your watch handy as you have thirty minutes to do your business before the door flings open, an alarm sounds and emergency services is alerted. Yikes. [Moscow Times via Wired]
