File this under "Why They Hate Us" The rest of the world, that is. They hate us because we make and market and buy things like Miracle Seat, "a vacuum toilet seat that COMPLETELY removes all odors BEFORE they escape from the toilet bowl."
  • I dunno, this Australian Company seems to be giving the no-stink toilet a run for its money. It's probably made for the Japanese market.
  • As falconred mentions, electronics have been making heavy inroads into restrooms around asia. While odor eating bowls seem perhaps extreme, there are few things I would prefer to have someone/something else keep clean than my toilet. So I, for one, welcome our new robotoilet overlords.
  • I still remember a woman interviewed on The Daily Show a couple of years ago. She was somewhat overweight (well, obese to be frank) and had invented the Sh*t Stick. Designed for larger people to wipe with. I honestly don't think anyone can beat that. (Wish I'd gotten to see her infomercial though.)

  • So I, for one, welcome our new robotoilet overlords. Wouldn't they be underlords?
  • *pushes thread away with ten-foot pole*
  • What's funny is that a google search for "shit stick" brings Mefi up as the fifth result.
  • Say, isn't that the Artist Formerly Known as Dizzy over there?
  • Bleck.
