This conversation could go off in any number of unbelievably gross directions. So I'm just going to send it
off in another direction.

Quickly, what is your favorite movie, book, year, and album by Van Halen?
Umm, the answer to all four is 1984.

So I saw a commercial for a "touchless toilet".  It appears to be designed for homes.

So, you sit on the thing, take a crap into it and wipe your butt afterward, but the idea of touching the flush handle skeeves you out?   ???  Well, okay, then.

Are you meant to hover over it?
You flush by holding your hand over the tank (back).

Maybe it's for people who are really messy in the toity? (Gross)
Possible.  I think, more likely, someone just wanted to design a high-tech throne and thought "there are germs on the handle, gross" and didn't put a lot of thought into the activities that occur before flushing.  On the whole, a pretty dumb invention.

Nice scenario:  "Honey.  Ignore the floater in the toilet.  I have to run down to the store and buy some batteries so I can flush it."



(By the way, it is possible to get a toilet to flush with a broken handle.  Growing up poor, you learn to improvise.)

Reminds me of my thoughts on touch-less antibacterial soap dispensers.  It seems a touch too paranoid a device for the fact that you're about to wash your hands with antibacterial soap.

You just push the ball-thingy in the cistern down, right?


I could maybe understand if it also had some sort of censor-triggered bidet, but then you wouldn't have to flush I suppose ...do you need to flush a bidet?  I assume you don't

Only problem is you can't reach around from a sitting position for a courtesy flush :scared:

That method works, for that type of toilet.  If it has a "flapper" and a chain, you can pull the chain.  If the cistern has a leak, you can turn off the water and keep a bucket of water at hand to pour into the bowl, which forces a flush.

Like I said, we were poor.

9 out of 10 people feel better after an amazing colossal dump. I'm kind of feeling the message is a little ambiguous but isn't that the general idea we're trying to convey here? *Awaits contradictory response*

Hmmm... starting to develop a hole in the bottom of these socks...

On a related note, those Psyllium seed husks (Metamucil) capsules I started taking have worked wonders.

I like peaches when they're soft and juicy. They're kinda hard to find though. Most of the time I'll bite into a peach and it's all dry and it tastes like I'm taking a bite out of solid styrofoam.
