a new way to chart weight gain & loss

We recently had another Buffet o’ Blog staff meeting at Larry’s Pizza (which seems to be one of our primary meeting places, for good reason).  One member of the R&D (Research & Development) department came up with a new niche product.  Not everyone will want this new invention, but we could see a few places buying one.

The idea is a toilet that has a scale built into the seat.  It’s not for taking your overall weight, but for telling you how many pounds you lost.  There would be a digital screen that would display this info.  It would also have a top 10 list of high scores.  This would be great for fraternity houses and certain all-you-can-eat restaurants.  (FYI, this idea came after we were all through eating, though I’m not sure if we could even be grossed out in that situation — we were quite focused on consuming large quantities of pizza.)

Another related idea would be to have scales in the chairs at all-you-can-eat restaurants, so it tracks just how many pounds of food you just ate.  I think that would prove popular, too, at certain locales.
