    Talking Seattle sells troubled toilets on Ebay

    If this wasn't $89,000 I might have bid on it for the two guys in my house. It self-cleans!! LOL

    News article:

    Neighbors and city-commissioned analysts said the unisex facilities attracted drug users and prostitutes, and were less cost-effective than regular public restrooms.

    (Oh, ok, ICK!)

    That toilet stall was $500,000 new! The city spent $2,500,000 on 5 autocleaning toilets. Yikes. It auto flushes, auto cleans seats, auto cleans the floors, and has sensors for everything else. I like the idea, but not the price tag. If each toilet was used 50 times a day for 4 years that comes to $28 per use! For that price, I'd rather hire someone to monitor a public restroom and constantly clean it.
