Revolutionized poop

In a world where cash is no longer king, more like a jack or a ten, and analogue no longer plays a primary role in our rudimentary everyday lives it's not hard to comprehend that even the way you have your daily bowel movement has been revolutionized.

Think back to 1995, when in preparation for your visit you would take a puzzle, some kind of newspaper, book or paper with you to the bathroom so that you have something to keep you entertained. Either that or you were left reading the labels on all the shampoo and conditioner bottles in reach.

Whereas today, none of that matters. No more boring stories or labels. Everyone has a phone that can access the internet. The vast majority of common knowledge and a plethora of opinions and want to be writers. Breaking news stories at the tips of your fingers. For some, like myself, it's even a creative time.

Jot down some notes, hammer out a few lines for your online community of followers, and if you are done in time read the news or play some mind numbing games which have grasped your will to succeed by killing as many zombies as possible. Toilet time has probably become longer because no one just leaves because they are bored.

They only leave when they are done reading that article, or have finished that level, which both take considerably more time than reading the label on the conditioner bottle. I just wonder how long it will be before you won’t need your phone anymore, where your toilet will have its own screen and internet connection.

When your holographic projector will be keeping you entertained on the toilet, or even, when your work goes with you to the bathroom. Worst day ever, when they take away the freedom of bathroom time, to increase productivity and minimize loss of work time.
