I can't imagine what it feels like to bare your butt in those frigid temperatures. Give me a heated Toto toilet seat.

I hope the bodies were returned to their families.

How do they propose to get the yeti to use them?

I would suppose No.1s are no real problem (don't eat the yellow snow) but No.2s can be a bit if a stinker.

Good idea.

Would guess those are chemical toilets, so they will maintenance(emptying, restocking of supplies, etc). Wonder who will do that and pay for that upkeep.
