Automatic dispenser drops aromatic oil on surface of water after flushing. This creates a smell barrier between your shit and the air. Saves water by eliminating the courtesy flush.

Well, you *did* ask! [Ling, Jan 21 2013]

       Would this dispenser be worn by the person who is s(h)itting on the toilet?

       Surely it would be simpler to mandate the inclusion of aromatic oils in everyone's diet?

       Xandram, its dispensed inside the tank
Brian the Painter, Jan 15 2013
  

       Well [Bri], I think I knew that, but then some people make the *courtesy flush* whilst still sitting...so...
xandram, Jan 15 2013
  

       No, the oil is there from the last flush. Your shit drops through it and because oil is light it stays on the surface. The smell cannot permeate the oil eliminating all smell. Any logs floating above the water are coated in Shoil and so they do not stink either. after you flush, another load of Shoil is dispensed ready for the next shitters comfort.

       I will have to test your theory.   

       //thus it won't be affected by the oil at all// It is scented oil, but you could be right.

       //I suspect a good portion of the smell comes from the gas expelled from the anal cavity when pushing out the solid matter//   

       Raise the level of the oil.

       You've got a bit of an anal fixation, haven't you, [Brian]? What exactly is it that you paint? Bowls? Walls?

       @bella//   

       Some of the ideas on HB were total shit this week. I told my wife I planned on creating one shitty idea every day this week as a form of contempt. Thanks for being the first to notice.
Brian the Painter, Jan 16 2013
  

       You're welcome. I do my best to contribute a few shitty ideas here and there.
UnaBubba, Jan 16 2013
  

       I see you shut down your own Chat room! I noticed you deleted every post after you said "Here endeth the conversation" Good job, that conversation digressed badly! (started OK though)
Brian the Painter, Jan 16 2013
  

       "that conversation digressed badly! (started OK though)" The good ones usually do. (do-do)?

       I honestly do not know what a courtesy flush is.
pocmloc, Jan 16 2013
  

       When a shit takes too long to deposit so you have to flush in the middle to relieve the smell. In a public bathroom the guy next to you jay request a courtesy flush if your too stinky!
Brian the Painter, Jan 16 2013
  

       Reading this discussion, as a dispassionate observer, is rather disturbing.
UnaBubba, Jan 16 2013
  

       feel a bit sorry for the *wife* even if it is an imaginary friend...
po, Jan 17 2013
  

       I think I was wrong about you Po... Your kinda funny. Unlike your librarian idea.
Brian the Painter, Jan 17 2013
  

       It's unsanitary and uncivilised to use a bathroom in the same wing as somebody else.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 17 2013
  

       Far better to use a different pigeon.
UnaBubba, Jan 17 2013
  

       Think about Germany! They have a pan at the back and the drain at the front, all ready for close scrutiny before flushing.

       //Ling// not sure what your talking about, do you have any pictures?
Brian the Painter, Jan 21 2013
  

       I'm with Brian on this one, what they inspecting shit for?
blissmiss, Jan 21 2013
  

       Lings link// ummm thanks.... I guess. *brahhhahh*
Brian the Painter, Jan 21 2013
  

       Alright, I get it now, but wish I didn't.
