    The Pentagon, one of the largest office buildings in the world, has twice as many restrooms as necessary. Why?

    I would guess that people there are twice as full of ... well I would not want to insult any of our service members who may work there. I guess I was subconsciously associating it with politicians.

    I didn't know that Caslon - is that still true after the completion of the Phoenix project and in the refurbished Pentagon Renovation Program area's?

    The renovated areas I have seen have standardised open office bays instead of the old enclosed office suites, and everything has been done to make it look like just another modern office building - well most parts of it anyway. The place is still a maze of incscrutability - never have so many labored so long to lead so few.

    Isn't it because when it was constructed, Virginia law required segregated bathrooms?
