Toilet Seat Scale Tells You How Much Weight Is Lost After You Take A Dump


By Luke Anderson

For those of you eating your breakfast when you read this, I apologize. How many times have you gotten done in the bathroom and feel like you’re ten pounds lighter? You know that feeling I’m talking about, when you’re convinced that you can now fit into jeans that are a size smaller than the ones you’re wearing. Well have you ever been curious how much of a load you just let off into the toilet? Well what you need my friend is a Toilet Seat Scale.

This concept toilet seat (I never thought I’d ever see a concept for a toilet seat) has a built-in scale. It is supposed to be designed for those keeping close tabs on their weight. However, we all know what this thing would get used for if it got put into production. There would be running tallies between friends to see who took the biggest crap. I’m just wondering when they’re going to get around to actually making this thing.

  1. I was just wondering if anyone ever invented this… I was going to get in the Toilet Scale game, but now my dream has been crushed. I could have sworn this was something that only I was crazy enough to imagine…

  2. Will not actually work unless you sit on the toilet in a crunch position with your feet hovering off the ground, which I suspect nobody does. When sitting, your weight is distributed between your butt and your two feet. Unless you have superhuman precision, this distribution will be constantly fluctuating. Meaning the load your butt puts on the seat will never be consistent, meaning any load (hehe, load) differential it measures is meaningless.

  3. Maybe there could be a weight-sensing device in the mat under your feet that is connected with the toilet seat scale and the scale could add the two weights to calculate your true weight.

  4. Since the government likes paying $500 for toilet seats, maybe these should be installed in all government facilities since most everyone who works for the government is full of S&5$T! And then they can find out just how much. I suspect most of them will turn inside out using this.

  5. If you wanted to cheat this, (and assuming it became an IoT connected device and they set up competitions) you could sit down with a 5 litre water bottle and progressively pour it down the toilet as you were crapping. Hey presto! Top of the dump-weight leaderboards.

  6. It’ll never be accurate to a 1/100 of an ounce no. But frankly it’ll be fine if you sit on the throne and get a before and after number.

    Yeah, there will be some change just do how much is on your feet vs ass but it won’t be all that much.

  7. No doubt the Squatty should be incorporated into this potty, before production takes place! I don’t have one (I see the guy below me loving on it), but I’m sure it’s more healthy. Most countries besides America do it. Well, maybe not the EU as much, but I lived in China three years. Usually even in higher end they’ll have a porcelain bowl, but it just has a spot either side to plant your shoes while you squat over a hole in the floor, but those modern ones do flush the below-floor area of the porcelain. (The foot placement area remains dry so a lot of dirty shoes in a row can necessitate plenty of bathroom cleaning maintenance.) But I digress:
    a lot of people believe squatting over a hole is best-practice when it comes to shitting. I think it’s PREtty good for childbirth, too. It’s always good to have gravity on your side.
    PS I don’t really believe in the shit-measuring too much. I just don’t think it weighs a pound like all you frat boys yelling out your totals. Even when you’re drinking beer, that would add up too–it all comes out! But do you really top a pound? Or just a couple ounces, right? Now I’m curious, but I’ve never tried measuring human excretion, and I feel my life has been complete, nonetheless.

  8. Does it print receipts?


    The fabulously beautiful planet Bethselamin is now so worried about the cumulative erosion by ten billion visiting tourists a year that any net imbalance between the amount you eat and the amount you excrete while on the planet is surgically removed from you body weight when you leave: so every time you go to the lavatory there it is vitally important to get a receipt.
