It's of no significance at all, I do know that but I can never quite get my head around why our former colonials insist on calling the lavatory (toilet, W.C. etc.) the bathroom, where am I'm 99% certain that facilities offered therein do not include a bath at all!

I recall as a child in the early days of TV seeing programmes like "Dragnet", "Dr Kildare", "I Love Lucy" etc. etc. hearing someone in a burger-joint say "Junior's just gone to the bathroom" and thinking "You can have a bath in a snack-bar in the US?. Amazing!".
