nizelodger's weird new gadget

    He has tucked a thingy under the toilet seat that (when it feels the urge) casts an ever-changing light into the pan.

    What I really love is that it's "motion activated"!

    Sounds fun! Is that the house with the mice or your other one?

    Pity, it's London,I could have lend you my cat. He loves catching mice! However,Aberdeen is a bit far to travel in a cat box.

    Does anyone have one of these gadgets? If so, why? What's wrong with turning the light on? What happens if there are no motions?

    My son in law put a motion sensor light in their downstairs loo so it wouldn't get left on by the children. If you take too long it turns itself off and you have to wave your arms about.

    Oh my gawd. Weirder and weirder!

    Can't they reach the light switch?

    They forget, it's supposed to save electricity.

    Our bathrooms have motion sensors under the hand basins, so that if you need to visit at night, there’s sufficient light to see, but not enough to disturb anyone else by switching a light on and off.

    I'm going to cry, because nobody got my joke about motion sensors!

    I did and wondered how it worked when you're constipated. Does it flash encouragement?

    Surely they'd only be useful in ensuites? My bathroom isn't next to the bathroom, so you might as well turn on the ordinary light.

    A soft red or orange glue would be best but blue light might undo your sleepiness.

    By the time I'd got within range of the sensor I'd have stubbed my toe and slipped on the tiles!

    I did :D but then I moved on from it. Sorry too late with the emoji. I used the same pun on the MRI thread.

    It must certainly help psychologically, knowing there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

    On a different note, why is not more lewd ribaldry being posted at the fact of a light in the actual toilet being called a motion sensor light?

    Precisely. I don't think yougsters are familiar with the term. Such a pity, when there is so much innocent ribald fun to be had...

    Auntie Duntie can surely help out here. I can't just let this drop into the pan of oblivion.

    What does it do for the 'opposite' bowel situation I wonder....
