Top 3 reaons Toilets really suck!

38 replies 2 views Edited Apr 5, 2007
I'm serious here. Not trying to be gross...

The Toilet is basically the same as it was in 1850. There have been small improvements, water pressure, heated seats, bidet-with-blow-dry, built-in nature sounds and lotion impregnated toilet paper. But these are all peripheral, why has there been no apparent research in totally re-modeling the toilet, from the plumbing up. There must be a better way. You'd think that something so frequently used would have been improved upon dramatically in the last century and a half.

The following really need to be improved upon:

1 - "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction". So ya gotta go number 2. Thats fine. But why does it have to "kerplunk" in a gallon of water? Nothing is more annoying than when the (tainted) water decides to splash back up and give you an undesired washin'.

2 - Not enough room to do your business! So you got done with number 2. Sometimes there isn't enough room behind you, to adequately put your toilet paper to use. Nor is there enough room in the front, for males. It's pretty disturbing when you get that cold feeling of porcelain in an undesired area.

3 - It's basically a funnel. Ok, newer toilets have more powerful jets/suction, but when your business is complete and it's time to flush, sometimes (depending on your toilet paper output) getting all of that into the pipes below just isn't going to happen.


Now, I know this thread is right on the edge here. But lets keep this to a mature and serious discussion, without getting too much into detail, if you know what I mean. So what are some ways that the toilet could be revolutionized...

I agree, but where are the 4th and 5th arguements?
This should be where that ugly block face is.

Feel free to add them. I was originally going to put 5, but they werent as strong of an argument. I was going to edit the title to Top 3, but I guess I forgot. (changed it now though!)
