toilet scale

For People obsessed with size and weight of their crap
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

A LED read out would, much like a video game, keep a high score of the heaviest turds, and most bountiful pisses recorded.

Great for medical use as well to keep track of a patient's discharge.

Let's face it, as Americans we like to eat big and shit big. It's exciting!!

neilp's Rule of Thumb http://www.halfbake...a/Rule_20of_20thumb
[gnomethang, Oct 04 2004]


       how old are you?
po, Aug 03 2003

       How it really works:
1) Weigh yourself.
2) Go to the toilet.
3) Use your Rule of Thumb (see link)
4) Weigh yourself and do the sums.
5) Tell all your friends about it.
I can see a particular problem with 5)
gnomethang, Aug 03 2003

       yes, no friends.

       Should probably be more obsessed with the scale of your crap.

       By my reconing, [izzard]'s generated 123 votes (good and bad) in the past day and a half. If that's an indication of entertainment value, that's not bad at all.

       [gnome] Measuring small differences between large numbers is a pain in the a.. The direct measurement is way more accurate.   

       This idea definitely meets a (perceived) consumer need +. Useful feature for the deluxe model would be measurements of density and surface hardness. Is there enough fiber, too much laxative, did I just loose water or some real weight?
kbecker, Aug 04 2003

       mmmmmm.......The direct measurement !
gnomethang, Aug 05 2003

       [blissmiss] I like that idea. Maybe a new thread ? One could always subtract the before and after figures if one was really desperate for a wieght assessment of ones fecal output.

       Originality? My college roommate thought of this in the 80s. I didn't think much of it then, either.

       // much like a video game//   

       I'm trying veerry haard to imagine this as a video game, still why not there's already enough crap out there one more shouldn't hurt.

       Over here, a lot of the toilets have shelves in them that you crap on. You can't weigh what you produced but you can get up, turn round and examine it for volume, colour and texture. Hell, you can poke it with a knitting needle if that floats your boat or bag it up for analysis. *That's* what I called bowel-obsessed.
