Epiphany Toilet on Building 37

Location: Roof of building 37
Date: October 2008

MIT hackers installed a fully-functioning toilet on the roof of Building 37 the morning of 10/5/08. The toilet was complete with a toilet-paper holder and a spare roll of toilet paper.

The toilet bore a resemblance to the "epiphany toilet" in the episode "My Porcelain God" of the TV series Scrubs. In this episode, people who use the toilet on the roof afterwards find solutions to problems. Perhaps hackers thought that the toilet would provide a place for students to solve hard problems.
