    whoa sweet! They need those in public restrooms so that the public doesn't have to actually lift up the seat lid when nature calls! (I always end up using my foot if I have no other choice but to go).

    First I'd copyright it, then go to big companies and tell them to give you money.

    Same with me thats why i thought it up, the only problem i have is the activation commands, i thought--------------------
    FEMALE, lid lifts, FINISH, lid closes and flush activates.
    MALE NO 1, lid and seat lifts, FINISH, lid/seat closes and flush activates
    MALE NO 2 lid lifts, FINISH, lid closes flush activates.

    I also thought about a pure numerical activation code, but i think that would
    take to long to read, and cause mishaps.

    Cool idea, but you'd want to patent it, not copywrite it. Also, you'll have to consider command codes for things like: DRUNK! START THE PORCELIN BUS!; or EMERGENCY OPEN!; Or, if the family dog is allowed to drink from it: 1 BARK to open & 2 BARKS to close. But then you may be having to get into the whole voice recognition thing. I can see it now; Junior badly has to go, but puberty is kicking in and his voice is starting to change and the toilet won't recognize his voice! Okay, so maybe I've gone a little off the deep end. It's still a cool idea.

    Ooooh, we can combine that with my heated toilet seat, it's a very clever idea, non-electric (don't want any mishaps) :uhh:

    You have no idea how much women need a heated toilet seat in the winter. :surprised

    I invented the tootsie roll blow pop, in a dream, long before they put it on the market. :devil: They owe me millions!!!!!!

    well, I think home depot has one of those, but with a seat warmer and a jet of water that, well, 'cleans' you. :redface:

    I hadn't thought about oral ejection, Hmm, and some times the last thing you
    want to do is open your mouth.

    My idea works on 24 ac so it is safe.

    Heated toilet seats ?? I would have to do some sort of survey to find out if the
    extra cost is justified.

    Tootsie roll blow pop ???? is that sherry nice. :rolleyes:
