Bathroom outlet

Bathrooming facilites in every room of the house

Have you ever woken early with the need to go to the bathroom, but didn't actually want to leave the room so other people in the house would think you were up? Maybe you're just too lazy, as well. Since electrical outlets are in every room of the house, why not have bathroom outlets as well? All you'd need is some kind of retractable tubing and a gender specific interface for it.

       Would there be one in the kitchen?

       Something about electrical outlets and gender specific retractable tubing in the same paragraph just doesn't do it for me. Maybe back in high school - I dunno   

       Since I rarely wake up without a litter of handy empties around me anyway, I'm probably not the best person to judge the merits of this idea.

       /gender specific interface/
so you would need two in each room?
How would you clean them?
Number 1 or number 2?

       Just number one, and they would only be in bedrooms. I didn't mean to imply that they would literally be in every room.

       Nice link [World]. I wouldn't carry around one of these while backpacking, but sounds convenient for long road trips.

       From my college days, I recall that all men need is a window.

Suggest reorganisation of preamble since you imply (and indeed infer!) exactly the same. And you didn't say "No #2s allowed!.

       <interesting fact>A book I recently read (link) suggested several times that some of the first installations of indoor plumbing in the U.S. planned to have faucets "in every room," which, given the specificity of the wording, I took literally.</if>
