Flushing toilets, turning on the tap, dispensing soap, drying your hands and opening the door can all be  handled by motion sensors. I wish all washrooms were equipt with such features.

The only thing that should remain a manual operation is the wiping of one's ass. Call me old fashioned.

Meeting a person you don't want to meet in the middle of the street in the middle of the street.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.
