In every large school there will be at least someone who is
to toast, and for whom an emergency use toaster needs to be
provided. These are simple toasters with few controls, equipped
with one single slice of frozen bread, poised above the slot, in
anticipation of being dropped in.
Breaking a glass panel initiates the toast making process. It also
sounds an alarm and triggers a camera recording of events to
acts of inappropriate toast making.
When complete, the emergency toast drops out unto a paper plate
which emerges from another slot under the toaster, accompanied
a simple plastic knife and a sachet of butter.
The entire apparatus is protected by heavy perspex housing, apart
from the glass activating panel. Once it has been used, it must be
opened via a key and reset with a fresh slice of bread, butter,
and plate. These quickly become chilled to preserve their
in the refrigerated box containing the toaster.
Emergency toasters are supplemented by donation boxes to pay
their maintenance and supplies.

||Makes complete sense - needs more butter though.
||Grrrrr scrape scrape.... Burnt toast, only suitable for
chucking at an intruder, frisbee style.... Oops another idea.
||I have never met a toast addict, ever. And being a former
addict of multiple substances, I know an addict from a mile
away. I have never seen one.
||As a recovering toast addict, who's battle cry was " Toast is the most ! ", this idea makes me hungry. I think I'll go to lunch.
||[blissmiss] The link is just for you to verify the true
addiction of Toast.
||Bizarre, weird, and had to see it to believe it territory.
||In the UK, every citizen has the right to bare toast.
||Emergency toast in all schools: No glass needed. Just break
the toast and eat it.
||How about an emergency toasted-cheese-sandwich
maker? It could be pre-loaded with buttered bread
and cheese, and be activated by any of several
switches around the school in case of emergency.
||I am pretty sure that anyone intent on causing a
school emergency is likely to be inescapably drawn
to, and distracted by, the smell of toasted cheese, to
the point where they might be disarmed effortlessly
||Grilled cheese, yes. Toast...not so much.
||Perhaps "toasted cheese sandwich" doesn't translate
||[blissy] *I* AM a toast addict! I cannot eat a sandwich unless
it's on toast, among other toasty meals, breakfast toast,
lunch toast, supper toast and snack toast (with honey or
jam or marmalade). Just so you know, now you know a
||So, I guess I must bun this idea...
||There is probably the means of making a machine gun type
toaster, where belt fed slices of bread (rounds) enter the
device and emerge rapidly, fully toasted like bullets.
||Shit, she probably wants her bun toasted too...(glances
sideways in xandram's direction.)
