There’s already a company out there doing “Smell Checks” for employees that stay in the bathroom too long while at work. Well now, there’s a company that aims to make your extended stay on the “throne” shorter by creating a new toilet with a slant. That’s right, the toilet slants 13 degrees and was created by a company called Standard Toilet.

It’s on a 13-degree slope so some of your weight is on your legs, and you literally CAN’T sit there for too long.  They say your legs should start getting tired after about five minutes.  It’s supposed to mimic what you do during a squat thrust.  So if you’re out of shape, you might find yourself in trouble.

They also claim it’s good for your posture and puts you in a better position to do your business.  But even if that’s true, the main selling point is it gets people back to work as fast as possible. They cost between $200 and $650 depending on features.  And they might be selling a model with an even steeper slope.  Their website mentions one with a THIRTY-FIVE degree tilt.


Do you think this is going too far?
