I don't understand spending $120,000 on your bathroom so you can soak in the tub for an hour each morning while watching the "Today show." I don't understand spending thousands of dollars to make a 9' by 4' shower. I don't understand spending $300 on a FAUCET, or getting a bathtub with a "waterfall feature," or spending thousands on computerized toilets with a control panel.

Look, I'm not saying that bathrooms should be reduced to a hole in the floor to crap in and a little tub to wash in. But wasting that much money on bathrooms is, pardon the expression, just flushing your money away. Consumerism thrives, and we're being played for fools.
