Hey, we used those toilets!

I discovered today that Seattle is getting rid of its 5 multi-million dollar self-cleaning toilets.

When we were out there last month with my brother and sister-in-law, we saw a few of them. We tried to use the first one, but waited...and waited...and waited...and finally left. I don't remember if it was self-cleaning or if someone was in it, but we'd had enough.

We came across another one in a park. It was the kind of place that looks like it could be a really neat park if it weren't for the people in it. Someone (either my wife or sister-in-law, I can't remember now) used it once it completed its self-cleaning cycle. As soon as she got out, someone else went in. Unfortunately for us, the woman didn't care to wait for the automatic door to close before she started taking care of business.

Bottom line is, they're a great idea, but realistically, they just didn't make sense. The first one we tried to use was in the middle of the sidewalk right on the wharf. There are people all over the place. It just felt weird.

But for those interested, you can have one of your own. They're selling them on eBay. No word yet on whether or not they'll still dial 911 for you...
