The Great Stagnation Rebuffed

Given that toilet technology, the average speed on freeways, and productivity in general, has been stagnant for about 40 years, it's good to appreciate real innovations when you see it. Take the new New Zealand drinking game:

Part of being young is embracing one's freedom to be stupid, and this takes it to another level.

If you're a property owner an older (or Canadian) big flush toilet is a valuable asset indeed.

Same with window "technology".
