Yuck. Wooden floor in a toilet. Way too hard to see dirtyness on unpainted wood for it to ever feel clean.

Still gross. Wood always looks dirty. I want a nice gloss surface with no textyre.

We have slate-type tiles on the floor. Looks awesome.


And if you're making a mess on the floor, it's shorter than you think, stand closer.

richms: I will be getting wall hung as the gaps around a floor bog are too tight for easy mopping.


We were looking at wall hung too. The nice man in the plumbing store talked us out of it. He said even with the chunky bolts they use, there will always be a bit of flex in it when you sit. We ended up with one with a full skirt around it - http://www.franklins.co.nz/vitra-matrix/741-matrix-back-to-wall-pan.html#. Makes cleaning just as easy and it still sits on the floor.

It was a right royal pain in the backside when the toilet lid came a bit loose though (can't reach the nut underneath). Needed to use special top mount screws that required the stars to be in a particular alignment, the right mystical incantation uttered and a chicken sacrificed in order to get it tight.

I take it that you'd be somewhat reluctant to take one of these pills then...

I'm thinking of becoming a donor - if they pay.

My friends in my bowels are very good. I don't need other pets.

I'll listen to that later - it is a very interesting topic.
I'll try and find a link to a UK researcher's theory on allergies.  He has some evidence and a darned good theory that the western epidemic of allergies relates to lack of exposure to animal faeces in our early environment - specifically that our immune system has evolved to fight bacteria, but that certain species of bacteria that we don't get exposed to any more in modern city life have co-evolved to suppress our immune response.  Some of the evidence is that kids (in the UK) living on farms have far lower incidence of allergies than city kids.
As they say, there are 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells in our bodies - and few are pathogens.
