Not sure of the one on the left but the one on the right is like major FREAK.

Could be worse though, could run into George Michael in the can. Wasn't he busted for being as frisky as that senator dude in the airport incident/situation? The toe-tapping-signal-something-or-the-other? Scary stuff. :mellow:

I think GM was doing a bit more than tapping his toes.

First off, I do wash my hands after using the toilet. Always.

That's my big neuroticism, is when a bathroom door is configured to swing inward so that you have to make contact and pull on a handle that you just know is covered in filth. That, and when facets require too much torque to turn off.

At times like that, I always end up asking myself, "What's the point?"

I worry when that type of setup is in restaurants.

Yeah, but I hate bathrooms that don't have paper towels, only that crappy air blower thing!

Yes, I despise air blowers too (some of them claim that it's more sanitary than paper towels...HA!) but there's the airblower at the First Colony Mall restrooms that's really awesome. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? If yes, than you too, have experienced it.

That is why I always get a paper towel BEFORE I wash my hands.

Take a napkin in there with you. In case it has one of those tree hugger air blower thing.

Reminds me of a joke I heard once:

There were 3 men at the urinal in a public restroom. The first man finished, went to the sink, washed his hands and then took 1 papertowel. By this time the 2nd man was washing his hands, and he scrubbed and scrubbed. They both looked at each other, and the first man said "I went to Berkley and they taught us conservation". The second man said " I went to BYU and they taught us cleanliness is next to Godliness". By this time the third man finished and was holding the door open for the other 2. He looked at them and said "Well, I went to the University of Texas, and they taught us not to piss on our hands." :D

Dyson Airblade?

The XLerator one works pretty well, too:

The Airblade is really the only one I don't mind using...but one slip of the hand and you'll accidentally touch it. The horror!

We have a few of these where I work. First time I saw it there was someone else in the restroom and I didn't know how to use it. I had an idea, but was to embarrassed to try. I think it would make more sense if you put your hands in horizontally, but I guess vertical serves more people as it shouldn't discriminate against height.

They have one of these at the Hyatt. Odd contraption. Does anyone know if the energy used to create the blowing effect outweighs the cost of paper towels? Or, the environmental costs? Is it better to cut down a forest of trees to make the paper towels than to burn some coal to power the blower? I'm so conflicted. I think I'll just wipe my hands on my pants.
