    The most foolish thing one can do this fall is to vote for Clinton or Trump. Wake up, get out of the matrix, and send a message to the political establishment that you won't play their game.

    If I have to use a porta-john you can believe that I spend as little time as I have to in there. And no way am I touching that screen.

    Yes!

    The second bathroom in my old Florida house was so big, I had a component stereo system and full-blown bookshelf in there.

    I was going to wire every room of the house with CAT-5 ... including dropping lines into the bathroom. Why? Because I could

    when I have to use the facilities here at work, I bring my G3 Web-enabled cell phone with me. I can't just sit and stare at the stall door, you know ...

    The pages are too slick.
    el Guapo is a former 20 year +/- urban planner (just like you) who thought becoming an attorney was a good life choice.

    I've checked my e-mail/voicemail from my cellphone in the washroom too. But it doesn't mean that I would touch a keyboard that is in a public stall. Yucky!

    As for the i-loo. Sounds like something Gizmo in Beatle Baliey would dream up.

    Off-topic:

    It's from a song by the illustrious Sacto band CAKE! The song's called Nugget. If Cake does a show in Sacto, you absolutely must go see it. I saw them at the Crest and the Cattle Club and both were awesome... I would assume that they probably sell out larger venues now though.

    internet access from a public (AND PORTABLE!) bathroom?!?!?!?
    NO f*cking way!

    If I'm already repulsed to portable public bathrooms... and who the hell would use such a thing...

    If it was in your own private bathroom it'll be ok, but not on a public bathroom...

    It's a bad idea. Duh! I wish Microsoft would just make up its mind. I wonder when the next retraction will be? Somebody needs a new media director!

    Nope, they really did plan on doing it.

    "On Monday, the world's largest software maker had said the "iLoo," which was described in minute detail in an April 30 press release by its British subsidiary, was a hoax and apologized for any "confusion or offense."

    But on Tuesday Microsoft switched its story and said that the iLoo had been a legitimate project by its British MSN Internet service that was terminated after the initial announcement prompted controversy, ridicule and disgust."
