Super Flush Toilet Can Swallow Golf Balls

During testing, the team flushes objects with a range of consistencies, including napkins, sponges, miso paste, polyballs, saw dust and corn.

And with competition from other companies, American Standard has no problem demonstrating the punch of its products, even on smart phones.

Fifty-six chicken nuggets? No problem for these crappers. Water wigglers? You bet.

    The toilets on my floor of the language building were replaced recently, and I think these toilets must be the ones they put in. The remarkable thing about them is the decibel-level of the flush. Jesus–it sounds like F-15 afterburners kicking in, and the alacrity of the “removal” is fucking magical.

    Reminds me of those Dyson hand dryers — they sound like fighter jets taking off from the deck of an aircraft carrier.

    The sort they use on planes seem to have quite a suck on them. I always remember to tuck all away before I press the button.

    The consequences of not doing so are to horrid to contemplate.
