This is an apparatus that allows a homeowner to generate waves in their toilet remotely.

       do you want to ride the wave?

       Ours does a good job of splashing the seat every other time it flushes.

       // homeowner// What if we are renting the house? Does the landlord get to do this to drive us out?

       I have a theory that toilet splashback is caused directly by Satan.

       Similarly, what if you have a mortgage? Presumably the control unit would be held by the bank?

       UK toilets are a different shape to US ones - the former only contain a little water at the bottom of a reasonably deep "well", while the latter have great shallow "pans", presumably to facilitate arse-splashage and the close inspection of unusual stools.   

       It would be difficult to even notice a wave in a UK toilet, so I don't see the point. It might serve as an annoyance to someone sitting on a US toilet though, to have their bottoms dampened by an unseen hand.

       ...and then of course there's the strange foreign toilets which have a little shelf for you to deposit your offerings on, to better facilitate their close inspection.

[zen] "to have their bottoms dampened by an unseen hand" - some people pay for that. Apparently.

       this would entertain the cat for hours.

       This is really just a remote controlled bidet, right? On the market in Japan for years now, I'm sure.

       US toilets are rather notorious for getting you wet, and not from the flushing. I'm not certain why we've maintained the water-wasting shape we have.

       It's being so far from civilisation that does that, [Rayford].
