Toilets work just like technical writers. Someone comes along and dumps a
load of crap on them, and then expects them to magically clean it all up and make it presentable by the time the person dumping it has washed his hands of it.
Then there's the flapper that won't seal, or other tool problems to
workaround, the engineers who want the bowl to drain counter clockwise
in a clockwise world, and the government regulations imposing
environmental processes, meaning half volume flushes and low impact
natural blue bowl cleaner.

If a toilet is able to manage these shifting standards and still put
out quality work, I would be honored to be in the same professional
company as that latrine.

Don't forget high-flow requirements from low-flow specifications. <sigh>
