Can you flush tissues down the toilet

Several years back, Kohler introduced a model of self-flushing toilet that uses a sensor to automatically flush when the user stands up. They flew folks from all over the world to test them, and all the tests were successful except for one demographic.

You’re at Duke, which means you are special, and therefore hated for being special. Ugh. Repulsive. Drop this program into an acid bath. … [Read more...] about How Many Squares Of TP Do You Use Per Wipe?
14. CloudPets There are many connected toys for kids on the market, including stuffed animals and sick robots. To a childless millennial like me, the news that toys are now connected to the internet is utterly baffling. What is wrong with a simple old teddy bear, I shout at the children on my lawn? Why does Old Ted need to talk to the cloud? If nothing else, the news that millions of recordings of children and their parents leaked from CloudPets’ database should give you pause. Kids will play with literal dirt and rocks, you fools. … [Read more...] about 15 Idiotic Internet of Things Devices Nobody Asked For
