Tush Technology

You guys know that I’m all about news.

You guys also know that I’m all about bathrooms.

Today, I am about bathroom news.  Eat your heart out, Fox News!

Today, I am, well, not proud to tell you about this, exactly.  Not pleased to tell you about it, exactly, either.

Today I am ummm, well, I’m just gonna tell you that technology has gone straight to the crapper.

Because there is now a gizmo that will tell you when you have to go to the bathroom.  In case you didn’t know.

I’m so ashamed that I’ve been doing it the old fashioned way for all this time.

  4. YOU, Elyse, are now officially my Favorite Person of the Day(TM). Because this post gives me an excuse to share THIS:

    You can thank me effusively later.

  5. What happens to people like me who are always forgetting to bring their phones with them? Is there an app strap for this crap? 😉 God, I missed you, Elyse!

  6. Does it work when nature sneaks up on you? Can I have a good window of time to find a bathroom without naturally navigating from bathroom to bathroom? I expect it would be very useful for incontinent people who don’t know. Much easier than cleaning up. Thanks for the poop scoop!

  7. Slightly off topic: Rumor is that that Reuters logo was designed by a Reuters graphic designer whose work was about to be outsourced. It is said to be the company going down the drain.

    Does it tell the difference between solid and just gass? Cause that might be helpful!

    “Attn, air my be expelled, safely. ”
    “Attn, solids arriving do not push, unless on toilet.”

    I prefer the pull-ups they have for kids, because you get to see the cool cartoon characters when they’re wet!

    (really, who’s idea was that? Of course the kid is going to pee themselves to see that happen!)

    • Those are after my time (as a toddler and as a Mom). I hate to think what they’ll have by the time I’m a grandma!

      And you’re right. I’d probably pee myself to see it too!

        I refused to get them for M but I was just very lucky he trained early. Of course, he gave up his nap really early too, so the good came with the not so much :/

    I think it’s a good invention if it will it tell me when someone else is about to excrete. Such as when I’m watching a political speech.

  12. Wouldn’t it be easier (and cheaper) to just wear adult diapers?

    But if you’re going to use the Smart Pants, I think it should have a audio warning system –
    “10 minutes to go.”
    “Start looking for a rest room, and don’t be too fussy.”
    “Start running NOW”

    Ha! I’m afeared that with a colostomy and a bowel re-routed, that I may not be the perfect candidate. Take that you pesky Japanese! Actually I did a piece on the aging population and Japan has the oldest population with 26% over 65 years. We can expect more such breakthroughs to come in the future.

  15. Oh. Good. Lord. I’d say “now I’ve seen everything” but I’ve already said that so many times in my life the phrase has ceased to have meaning.

  16. Phew, for a minute there I was thinking I wasn’t going to get any bathroom news at all today. Thank you. THANK YOU.


  17. “this device predicts fecal excretion”—Now that’s not a phrase you hear everyday…
