We millennials have always been great at multi-tasking: we play iPad games and listen to Beyoncé while we ride the elliptical; we watch Bravo and eat pints of ice cream while we do our homework. So it should come as no surprise that we also have a strong tendency to use social media while we poop.
Hack Hack Hack Hack It Apart
There’s a Japanese social group founded on Facebook whose members gather once a week to clean public restrooms with their bare hands as a spiritual cleansing ritual. Good morning!
As the AP reported this week, the group is called Benjyo Soujer, which loosely translates to “Bathroom Soldier” in English. A team of 35 men, women, and children, the group meets every Sunday morning at 6 a.m., gears up with cleaning supplies, and spends around an hour and a half scrubbing some nasty Tokyo toilets.
Hey, you pranksters. Have you ever wanted to use your smartphone to hack a toilet, freaking out whoever is enjoying their after-coffee ritual by causing the seat to open and close and water to spray all over their sensitive areas? We’re about to make your Friday: according to information security company Trustwave Holdings, the fancy Japanese toilet Satis is easily hackable using just your cell phone.
