Toilet Seat Conspiracy - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Does anyone know if commercial toilet seats are purposely designed to make sure the sitter's legs go to sleep within 5 minutes of the time he/she sits down?

I can read half a magazine on the crapper at home with no ill effects, but man, I barely get past the editorial page here at work without practically needing to call for help to stand up. Trying to walk back to the cubicle without looking like a cripple is a challenge.

Anyone else out there noticed this?

I have noticed that also. I can lose $4000 playing solitaire on my HP jornada pda at home, or read an entire article in American Heritage of Invention and Technology.

But at work I have to get up quickly. Its a shame... its where I used to do most of my most creative thinking.

Well.... if it werent for the newer toilet seats, the guy on his cellphone in the next stall would bother me anyway.....


The first few times I heard a guy talking on the cellphone in the stall I was just shocked. Now when it happens, I make lots of groaning noises...
Hey.... maybe his wife wants to hear that kind of stuff !
