On Automatic Flushing

I really hate those toilets that flush automatically. They have them in Green Hall, which houses the Psych Dept. and also my office. Whenever I take a crap in one, it flushes like 5 times while I'm whiping my ass. It's also a very powerful flush, so you get a lot of splashage, which is bothersome for me and unfortunate for the next person who tries to sit on the toilet. Not to mention the fact that it's wasting a shitload (haha, accidental pun there) of water flushing 5 times every time that someone takes a crap. I'm not one to be a hippie tree hugger, but this is inconvienience at the cost of the environment, of which I disapprove.

Really, what's the point of those things? To make sure that nobody leaves a floater? Let's look at the situation here. I'm going to bet that the auto-flush toilets are more expensive than a regular toilet. Therefore, only places that can afford the "luxury" of an auto-flush toilet will have them. Places like the PU Psychology Department. Now, when one is in one of these nicer establishments, no matter what type of person you are, you're probably going to make sure you flush. Now, the places that people would leave a floater in, such as some shitty run down bar, a taco place that already wreaks of crap, or Frank's Chicken House in Manville, NJ, are likely first of all not to really care about being all that sanitary and are also less likely to be able to afford such a pricy privy.

In conclusion, Auto-Flush latrines suck

I need a catchy phrase to put at the end of my posts like tweedledopey's "And the plot sickens." Any suggestions?

Point of note, sir: Auto-flush toilets aren't the only completely crazy ones. All of the toilets at Princeton do that. I think it is so they don't ever clog up and need to be plunged.

And "The plot sickens..." means there is more to read. Click on that, and you'll see the rest of the story.

Oh, damn, that means I have a lot of reading to do on your blog. Guess that whole thesis thing is going to have to wait.
