What does the Braille on this restroom sign say?

A friend recently saw this bathroom sign in Utah; we agree that the imagery and wording for the sighted are pretty great. But what does the Braille say? Looks like the letters are ??WOME -- but transliterating doesn't really help me understand the text. I couldn't find anything similar on these ADA bathroom signs. Help?

Toilet anxiety

Often when I go to urinate - whether in a public or private restroom/toilet/bathroom - if there's someone within hearing distance, I can't go (i.e. urinate) until they've left and I'm alone. I end up standing there as if I'm confused about what I'm there for, no matter how badly I needed to go only seconds earlier. How can I overcome this apparent anxiety? Any tips or tricks for uninhibiting whatever it is that's causing my body to tense up? [more inside]

An answer to the TP question?

Is the metal flap on Japanese and European TP dispensers (photo) an indication that they've resolved the seemingly endless debate one hears in America about which orientation of the toilet paper roll (over or under) is better, or correct?

Why do women use paper toilet seat covers in a clean restroom?

Many times in my various workplaces, I've noticed people "nesting" in the ladies restroom. By this I mean, using one of those papery toilet seat covers before sitting down. Most of these incidents involve a restroom that is spotless, and sometimes it was only used by a few people. I'm of the mind that using these things is if anything, less sanitary, as it increases the chance of (*ahem*) fluids getting on the seat. I can't find any info either way - your thoughts?
