    Alexa-controlled toilets are a thing in 2018, but cost thousands. An enterprising person can make their own by following these instructions.

  • Face Gadgets: Rolling Razor = blades on a ring

    I don’t find shaving to be a good use of my time. As such, I use a trimmer every week or so to just clip the little guys down to a manageable, non-itchy length.

    Here’s too much information for you: being of Nordic descent, I have an average to slightly below average amount of body hair. No hair on my back, though, so I’ll probably never need to use the $49.95 Extended Reach Body Hair Groomer from Hammacher Schlemmer.
