Blazing Toilets

In what could be one of the weirdest stories I've heard this week, coming out of Japan, is toilets randomly catching fire. Japanese company Toto Ltd creator of 'high tech' toilets and bidets have been having some problems with their products.

Toto Ltd., known for its high-tech toilets with bidets that have blow-drying, air purification and seat-warming functions, apologized to consumers and offered free checks and repairs after some of its toilets with bidets and heated seats sent up smoke and three caught fire.
The report goes on to say no one was injured, But lets say if there was, would you admit it? Getting your bum scorched on the toilet is not something I'd brag about. Who needs high tech toilets anyhow, there are some parts of life that technology shouldn't fool with in my opinion. Anyhow you can read the full article here from Reuters.
