The Japanese Toilet

Even though my fascination of Japan is relatively well documented, I simply cannot imagine using a Japanese-style toilet (have a look at this instructional Flash movie to see how it's used).

The whole contraption just frightens me, it's like they had just ripped a regular urinal from the wall and forced it into the floor. I can imagine that any westerner confronted with it would feel like John Spartan in Demolition Man when confronted with the toilets of the future... "he doesn't know how to use the three shells!"
