Diet Toilets?

Ok, what tree hugging, green peacer invented the low flow (flush?) toilet? I mean seriously.  Do you have one? Cause if you do--I feel for you.  I really do.  If you don't, let me enlighten you on a few things.

First of all, original toilets have that giant-wake-the-baby-flush that we all know and love that sounds like baBOOSH! You know what I'm talking about.  These new fandangled toilets are more like a light swish. I wish I was kidding.  Really I do. Sadly, I am not.

The thing is--it's like the problem with diet sodas.  Studies show they can actually be *more* damaging to your health.  Why? Because the drinker sees that it is 'diet' it has less calories, sugar, caffeine (wtheck is diet soda made out of anyway? :-/) so they tend to over compensate by drinking more than they would have if they just drank a regular full strength soda, right?

Well, it's the same w/ these toilets that I have now dubbed 'diet toilets'.  It doesn't really flush, it lightly swishes.  SO you are stuck w/ a wad of---let's just say toilet paper (& call it a day), in the bowl.  Naturally you flush again. Except--no people, it doesn't have enough swish to even get the toilet paper properly flushed!

True story: yesterday, there was a wad of toilet paper (no really, it really was tp...this time) sitting in the toilet bowl ALL.DAY! Well, *I* certainly was *not* going to put *my* hand in that bowl to push it down.  EEewweee gross! What kind of person do you think I am? Maybe you shouldn't answer that after this post. kwim?

NO, I could not use the toilet bowl brush--it would have ended up as a soggy mess stuck all over the brush. duh! And how would I get that off w/ no water pressure in the darn diet toilet!!!

It's supposed to save water usage but really, like diet soda, the water pressure is so bad you are forced to over compensate.  I can't tell you how many times I've had to *flush* to get tp down! By the time the bowl is actually empty, you've used up way more than your average baBOOSH! Trust me.
