Toilet Dimmer Switch

With constant warnings of power and water shortages, people are getting an awful lot of dimmer switches for their lights (unless you're a def and blind amish person without arms or a racecar, you should know what this is. It selects how bright your lights are). What about the water? Why don't we use a similar device on toilets? Do they already exist and I, too, am a def and blind amish person without arms or a racecar? Where did that spider go?

The toilet dimmer switch will have settings from a "Just pissing through" (with minor amounts of water) all the way to "the Goatse.cx maker" (small ocean for the Big Juan). After each flush it will automatically go to the lowest setting.

       Not [AfroAssault]'s best idea, but I have to give it croissant for the entire last paragraph.

       I have been in some public restrooms where the urinals have an Alcatraz-style faucet which you have to hold in order to flush. The only advantage to this is you can select how much you want to flush. Putting a brick inside a water-wasting toilet saves some water.

       I had to croissant this just for the subtitle. Any idea could be made better with random cries of "NINJA ASSAULT". Well, not any idea, but any AfroAssault idea.

       you can get little inflateable "hippos" that do the same as the brick [amish] - hey qb, go back to sleep, its very boring.

       Would it be possible to put a "clapper" on it?
