Most Expensive toilet? umm Not!

I saw this toilet from Kohler on the web.  I couldn’t help to write something about it because I really find it amusing that toilets can be this expensive.  I wouldn’t be surprised if one of this years the Hi tech giants such as Microsoft, Apple, and Android would start making toilets too.

The Price of this Toilet from Kohler will cost you around $6,400.

Here are the things that this toilet can do that other toilets can’t.

1) The Numi comes with a ‘sleek, interactive LCD touch-screen interface’ as well as a ‘built-in personalised bidet functionality and deodoriser’.

2) It features innovative dual-flush technology, unmatched comfort features and an intuitive auto opening and closing lid.

3) The toilet’s motion-activated seat is heated. Your feet will be kept nice and warm too, by the toilet’s vents that gently blow hot air on them.

4) It also comes with speakers equipped with MP3 input sockets. You won’t even need to go to the trouble of choosing your own music though, because the toilet will also play pre-programmed music or radio broadcasts.

It sounds like number 4 is starting to push the envelope.  Next thing you know wi-fi would be one of the options, and we’ll be talking about what operating system this toilet will use.

Well as it turns out this price didn’t put the Numi as the “most expensive toilet” there’s this toilet from Japan worth $37,000,000.  That title goes to a toilet made by Hang Fung Gold Technology in Japan, which is made of solid 24-carat gold.

“Hey Diddle Diddle… Cow jumps over???”

Remember that nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle?

Hey diddle diddle,
The Cat and the fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the moon,…

Well I was surfing the internet and stumbled into this site named Wierduniverse.net and I saw this picture.  Oh boy… even if this cow didn’t jump over the moon I think this cow deserves some recognition right? Take note the name of this cow is Luna (goddess of the moon???).  She’s definitely a “Cowgirl”.

Lionfish’s New Natural Predator

This is an interesting twist in the cycle of life under the see.  I have been a salt water aquarium owner for about 2 years now and I’ve always wanted to own a Lionfish but it is a bit expensive.  I know that these fishes have a very limited to no natural predators and that is why they thrive.  I saw this article in NatGeo and read that in the Honduras local dive masters who are familiar with the sharks decided to try to turn them on to eating invasive lionfish.

As for a Natural Predator if these fish weren’t spiky we as humans probably could be one of them.  Who knows maybe there could be some of us that eats them and it’s just not published.  Maybe in Japan they can come up with a sushi for this fish.  I will search for this and update you when I find a topic regarding lionfish as food for us.
