Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2018-122: Japan: Star Trek Bathrooms, Part 9 of ?

Public rest rooms in Japan almost make the trip worthwhile.  They really get into their sanitation.  Relieving yourself becomes a major event.

The have heated toilet seats.  Maybe your Lexus has heated seats but have you ever considered one for the bathroom and of course they are padded.

Then there are the bidets on demand.  In addition you can have a rectal shower with controls for how strong the flow would be.  I must confess that I don’t have any idea the difference between a bidet and the shower feature.  I was not even close to trying them.

They also have what you might call Music to Fart By.  This is more in the lady’s room than the men’s.  The idea is that the music will drown out any offensive noises that you might make while doing your thing.  The stalls are also often totally confined rooms so you have to live with what you make.

Then there are what are called “Squatty potties” by some.  These are holes in the floor that meet all your needs.

To top it all off there are no paper towels.  I always found an electric dryer but I have heard that some places do not even offer that.  People carry their own little towels to use when needed.

If you feel you have done everything that America has to offer you might want to take a trip to Japan just for the experience of their bathrooms.
