The movie Gremlins turned me off of pooping for a while. When I was a kid, I suffered major issues because I was scared that a gremlin was going to pop out of the toilet and bite off my asshole. In retrospect, it was a legitimate fear since my asshole is the reason I have so many fine things in life, but maybe the problem was that my toilet was too plain.
These strange toilets from around the world would probably have done more to soothe my fears than time ever could (except the skull-shaped one). Statistically, you will spend 4 years of your life defecating, so you might as well make the experience interesting, #amiright?
