Save money while wiping your butt?

Wiping your butt isnt a normal go to for saving money, but I would like to show you how it could be.  It is estimated that people spend on average almost 2 hours a week in the bathroom that means going to the bathroom and not showering, applying make up, flexing in the mirror, taking mirror selfies, ect...

Humans have used many different items to wipe from their left hands* to corn husks to newspaper*.  Today toilet paper is the most widely adopted wiping medium because it is relatively cheap and is sterile in its one time use.  Toilet paper comes in many comfort levels and layers referred to as "ply".  We all dread going into a bathroom dropping the big one and unrolling to discover 1 ply.  If you arent careful with one ply you will be wiping with your hand. Toilet paper evolved into baby wipes and actual biodegradable wipes became mainstream.

You may enjoy the refreshing wipe a flushable wipe gives, but if you have a septic tank(and many municipalities are against them) you already know you are not supposed to flush them.  Some people enjoy the feeling so much they put them in the trash. 
There are a few drawbacks to these wipes:
-They are expensive.
-They can be cold.
-Disposal (In many cases you arent supposed to flush them)

Toilet paper has been the go to wipe technology for most of the civilized world with one major exception, France. Aside from being invented in France in the 17th century we dont know who exactly invented the bidet.  Bidets were thought to be a form of contraception early in its use.
 
The name "bidet" gives away its French origins.  "Bidet" in French means "small horse" or "pony" the idea of straddling a small basin like a small horse and using the device is how it was associated in that period.  Given the evolution of the word,could you imagine if it were made today?  It might be called the moped or some other small bike. Toilet Jr would get my vote! 

Early bidets were standalone units beside the toilet that required entirely separate plumbing and drains.  They were eliminated in most cases due to cost, and in some cases they were eliminated because without proper cleaning they could harbor bacteria. 

TUSHY bidet attachment

Today, however, bidets can be installed to existing toilet seats and branch off of nearby sink hot and cold water.  These type of devices werent patented until the 1920's by John Kellog who called it the "anal douche".  The Japanese picked up on the seat mounted device in the 1980's and added all sorts of electronic features ranging from water and seat heaters to night lights. Today a company called TUSHY is trying to get the bidet to become mainstream in the US.

LANGUAGE WARNING(clean version below):

CLEAN VERSION:

A toilet seat mounted bidet can save you money by ELIMINATING the need for flushable wipes AND/OR reducing the amount of toilet paper you need to use. Because lets face it.  We have all had those times when it feels like you have to use half a roll to get yourself clean.
Also, if you want to remove toilet paper almost completely there are bidet towels made from sustainable bamboo that you use to pat dry after you are done.
Do you think you will save money on your tushy with TUSHY?

What were the books from "The Equalizer"?



The 2014 movie The Equalizer(if you havent watched it you can watch it at the link) was built around the idea that Washington was a closet hitman, and he had this odd fascination with reading books to honor the memory of his dead wife.  The books  he reads are used to provide a subtext to the movie.  What would Denzel do?

The first book that is introduced is The Old Man and the SeaWashington gives a brief synopsis and uses the book to explain life to the hooker he rescues that is central to the story. 

The next book is Don Quixote. While the book is not explicitly mentioned or shown, the overview he tells the hooker he is saving while walking her home from the dinner makes it pretty obvious.

The final book is Invisible Man. This book is interesting because it is shown at the very end of the movie.  At first you might not think about the book because the title sorta fits with Washington's persona.  He was essentially the invisible or underestimated man throughout the story.   But when you look at that book it "chronicles the travels of its narrator, a young, nameless black man, as he moves through the hellish levels of American intolerance and cultural blindness."  The current affairs of the time were all about race with Obama recently winning the 2012 election and a few other notable events going on throughout the country.  It makes the inclusion of the book even more poignant.

Be on the lookout for the books from the upcoming The Equalizer 2. EQ2 starts off with Washington reading a book on a train.  I wonder what significance the books in EQ2 will have for the story and for commentary on current events.

What books are in The Equalizer 2?

The invisible gorilla and eat your carrots from Gringo

If you watched Gringo, a video by Amazon Studios, then you saw the constant references to gorillas Harry ironically points out in the movie. If you havent watched it you can watch it free here. As you may have guessed the references are from real world studies. 


The first one is the carrots and bananas experiment.  Richard(Ironic name, huh) tells Harry about a book he read it in.   The movie references a book titled Dear Darwin: Experiments with Apes and Man.  The experiment and book may be real, but I was unable to find any info on the book. Making a fake book cover  is pretty simple.  However, a very real book on his shelf in the scene where he displays the Dear Darwin book was The Art Of War.  The Art Of War was probably displayed to show he was a strategic businessman.  I like to provide visuals so I found a similar experiment with cucumbers and grapes. The parallel should be apparent. The short video is actually kind of funny. 



The video is about unequal pay. Obviously the sweetness of a grape is of more value to a monkey than the taste of a cucumber.  The parallel can be seen in the example from the movie about the banana and the carrot which is referenced at the end.  In the movie this example may have been substituted for continuity, simplicity and that neat ending.  Continuity of the use of gorillas sets Harry up to say the hilarious line(Im sure you were thinking), "Why is everyone talking about Gorillas!?"

Later on his wife Bonnie tells him a story about a gorilla experiment involving a ball.  I was able to find a video on this, and spotting the gorilla isn't as tricky as you may have thought. Counting the passes is a bit more tricky.  How did you do?


The final allusion is an outlier about a bear, and is similar to an old tale about a village and a tiger.  The kids in the village find a baby tiger and raise it.  The village elder warns them that the tiger should not be kept as a pet.  The people ignore the elders warnings.  A child gets injured and starts bleeding. The tiger licks the wound and the taste of blood sends him on a killing spree wiping out the village.  The bear allusion is a truncated version of that story.
