I had to venture into the new casino here to get a glimps of them. Actually
its a pretty ingenious idea! What happens is: You approach the urinal, the
motion sensor switches on, you do your business, notice the 'sloan' logo on
it and say 'cool', realize that there are no flushers on the tank and walk
away, the motion sensor flicks off and triggers the flush sequence for that
one stall.

High tech for a can you say? If you'd like to subscribe to the sloan toilet
fixtures newsgroup its Flush\!/aol.com. All it is, is people sitting around
marveling at their motion sensor toilets. You get quite bored with it after
a few weeks tho. Actually, i thought that was what this place was by
accident but decided to stay on here anyway :P

ps: Anyone catch the Local Rabbits at Amigos in Saskatoon on the 15th or
whenever it was?

ps2: Oh, and if anyone's interested or will be in the area, Trebel Charger
will be playing at Louie's at the U of Sas campus on Thursday the 21st. Im
sad to say that i wont be there.
