I know. You’re going to say that this is a really crappy business story. Yet, believe it or not in the name of science one large plumping design company, MaP(Maximum Performance) use logs of soybean paste to test new toilet designs to work better with less water waste. Here is photo from their research and development department to illustrate just exactly how these new design low volume but strong flush toilets are tested in the lab.

Strange business story. Interesting, yet somehow disgusting, all the same. I wonder how THE WALL STREET JOURNAL managed to miss this business story? But hey, made you look….made you laugh!
