Oops--I wasn't too clear on this one. Sorry--and thanks, Dan, for pointing out that I left room for misunderstanding about this.
> ... the ones with digital remotes ...
My mind is reeling at this concept. What is the rationale for a
remote-controlled toilet? What is the range? I mean, how far away from the
control arms would one expect to get? Is this feature used only by men to
avoid bending down when standing? Do junior executives run the remotes for
That last wouldn't surprise me. I should have been clearer though--it's a remote in the sense that it's not on the toilet seat itself but built into the wall next to the toilet (or into the toilet paper holder for the cheaper ones). Even the Japanese figure there are a limited number of places you can be and still want to activate a bidet (though think of the fun if you had the remote when someone else was sitting on the toilet).
