Why Japan didn't invade Iraq ...

... they were too busy sitting on the toilet.

Japan actually has the following two committees/councils:

1. Electric Toilet Seats Evaluation Standard Subcommittee
2. Warm-Water-Shower Toilet Seat Council

I guess their bum-washing toilets are a problem though ... they consume 4% of an average Japanese households energy. Holy crap! Talk about flushing energy down the drain! The top models go for $4k! Not cheap ... and it's altering male behavior ... with more men sitting down to urinate. Supposedly to cut down on "urine splash". Wouldn't want to dirty the porcelain throne ya know.

I used some fancy toilets when I lived in Japan, and some of them were awesome!
