The first World Toilet Summit is being held this week in Singapore, a country where you can be fined for not flushing the loo!
About 200 people from around the world will be at the three day meeting to talk about toilet design, ventilation, and new technology.
Arthur Giblin was the inventor of the first flushable toilet
The average toilet is flushed 8 times a day
We use an average of 57 sheets of toilet paper a day!
But it's no bog-standard meeting, opening with a potty pantomime of toilet troubles, including the problem of smelly cubicles.
Toilet issues are important to those at the meeting. For instance, China's trying to flush away it's reputation of bad toilet facilities in time for the 2008 Olympics which they're hosting.

There's also a very serious side to the meeting. Four in 10 people in the world don't have access to toilets and two million people, most of them children, die from diseases caused by bad sanitation each year.
It's especially a problem in places where there's not much water and the meeting looks at ways these countries can be helped.
