What is the world coming to?

A while back, a link from CakeWrecks led me to Jorge Garcia's blog. (He's the actor who plays "Hurley" on Lost.)

Well, a day or two ago, he posted about a recent hotel room, sharing a photo he took from the tub. (Don't worry, it's not that kind of a blog.) The reason he decided to share the photo was that he found he could see the hotel bed from the tub-- not because the door to the bathroom was open, but because the wall between the bathroom and bedroom was less of a wall than, well, a large window.

If you're intrigued, check out this post (with a photo) and/or this one (with a video).

How weird! Why in the world would anyone design a bathroom with glass walls? It seems more like it belongs in some bizarre art installment than in a hotel room. (Maybe the artist-- er, architect was trying to communicate something about how we lack true privacy in this modern age.)
