Open lid

Open lid

In Japan, toilet lid opening is automatic.
Most foreigners who see it say ‘Wow, this is great!’
Are you serious? Is it necessary to make it automatic?

When I was a child, my house’s toilet was a pit latrine.
However, it was enough for us. Well, sometimes while using the toilet, my slipper would fall into the pit.

Anyway, I feel somewhat empty thinking about the automated system. Do you think so too?
Because, I believe that we have many other things to do.

I’m sure, they have developed too much, there is already nothing to do and they have too much free time.
You see, it goes with the proverb: “an idle brain is the devil’s workshop.”
Meanwhile, they will soon invent an automatic zipper opening.
