Q: Why are the toilets still made underneath the ground?

I almost fell inside! Do you like to squat? Oh yeah!

Underneath the ground. Wow, no wonder you almost fell in. Your head is so far up your ass you've lost all sense of direction. Good luck with that underground toilet.

yanno, the toilets that are "underneath the ground," those are the ones you are supposed to use head first.

Official Underneath the Ground Potty Instructions:
The UGP is meant to be used in two cycles. The first is called the Face Wash. You will want to do this BEFORE using it for the second cycle.
Stand facing towards the UGP, toes touching the edge.
Bend over at your waist until the top of your head is below the rim of the UGP.
*** IMPORTANT: Make sure your buttocks are up in the air, pointing east. If they are not pointing east, carefully side step around the UGP until your buttocks are in the correct position.
Flush once, to test your position. If only the top of your head gets wet, you need to bend forward just a little more.
Once you are in the correct position, you are ready to complete cycle I. Flush again, making any adjustments for optimum swirly effect.
Flush a third time just to be sure your face is rinsed properly.
**** It IS OK to flush a fourth and fifth time. The more you flush, the happier you will be with your results.
You have now completed the swirl cycle and proceed to the second cycle.

Oh yeah. uinderground toilets are terrible!  First you gotta find the stall, then you gotta dig the hole (careful not to break the pipes!). Squat, do your stuff,  flush and then re-bury the darn thing!
If you forget to flush, you need to un-bury the toilet, flush and then REbury it again. Class monitors are very strict about this!!!!!!

You do know that ground can also mean ground floor? As in first floor second floor etc., It doesn't have to be below the dirt floor like some of you responded. I do find many toilets on the floor and it's not above the ground I am walking on so its underneath. 

Where do you guys come from anyways? Some 3rd world that doesn't know the differences in the word ground.

A: If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related sub
A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
