A YouTube channel I have a love/hate relationship with has a Bluetooth enabled toilet and I just can’t quite get my head around why one might actually need such a thing.
As it happens, I do have some Bluetooth headphones which I purchased because I wanted to be able to listen to music while working on boat projects but never use them because the signal drops out all the time and that really gets up my nose where listening to music is concerned.
But still, one wonders what sort of advantage a Bluetooth toilet has and WTF they actually cost.
That said, however misguided having to be connected to one’s toilet via Bluetooth might be, it is preferable to some of the sailing channels which are starting to look a lot like infomercials instead of videos about cruising as one I recently viewed mentions the name of a certain purveyor of sewing machines, fabrics, and assorted notions so many times that the only words that comes to mind is “Set it and forget it!”.
But wait, there’s more!
Well actually there isn’t but the whole Ronco style of over-commercialization and pandering is so far removed from the whole VolksCruiserish “Just find a good boat, fix it up, and sail off into the sunset on a sustainable budget” vibe most of the cruisers I admire adopt just depresses me.
