The World’s Coldest Toilet?

Now, this is interesting (and another web-based Ping.)

Apparently, if you want to spend $2500+ on a stainless steel toilet, you can. The downside I can immediately think of is that the thing must be damned cold. And we all know that cold toilet seats are a big problem.

Yes, you too can have that "I'm locked up in this room with padded walls" feel to it with the Metro Urban Mira Toilet!

That has gotta be one C-C-C-COLD toilet seat. I don't care how cool it looks, it's not worth the pain.

I'm cringing in specific areas of my body right now, just thinking about sitting on a cold stainless steel toilet.

That's just not right.

Pillows are meant to be cold, not toilet seats.

From what I understand, most toilets in our newer prisons are stainless steel and not porcelan.

I actually work for a company who used to sell warm toilet seats. A little pricey but very comfy!

That's a great item, Jamie. That's what America is really all about: Cold Pillows and Warm Toilet Seats.

God bless America.

Funny....this is my first time on the site....after stopping up my toilet with what must have been my greatest accomplishment to date, I looked to good ole' MSNsearch for "clogged toilets". Alas, you have covered this topic and gave some great suggestions. Tried em, unfortunately waiting for the sulfuric acid to try its thing. Anyhoo, the coldest toilet seat is the side of my bathtub as a hang my ass in my makeshift potty. (number one only..number two has to wait until I get to work)..thanks for a great bit of wit and wisdom in an otherwise crappy(and cold) ass of a day!

Let me get this right.... cold, metal toilet seats? Something might get stuck! How would you get out of that one? (And I'm not talking about the dog's tongue, either.)

What, no gold plated option? No bling on the ping for the Ding Pong? Outrage...

Oh well, maybe we can find a heated leather one someplace. Maybe something in a Gucci or Ralph Lauren collection...

Or... ::thinking about dinner last night::

Maybe Recaro or Sparco with a 5-point harness?

Home Depot carries a Kohler heated toilet seat now as well. Has anyone tried one?
