Grist writer David Roberts owns an Australian model that never clogs and uses less water than a standard toilet. "If he likes," Roberts writes, "I will personally have one of these toilets sent to Sen. Paul. Perhaps it will change his life like it has changed mine. Perhaps it will reassure him that his freedom to flush his turds with lots and lots of water was not sacrificed in vain." [Grist]
