Could I, Should I, create a patent?

Yesterday enough was enough! I'm sick of our main floor toilet not flushing well. Sometimes, not at all and I have to use the plunger. I already snaked it several times, even removed the toiled trying to find the cause of the poor quality flushes. So I stopped at home depot and got a Class 5 "powerful" toilet. The word "Powerful" was the sales clincher for me.

When I got home I again removed the old one and put this new one in. When I used the Shop Vac to clear out the remaining water in the bowl after turning it off, it sucked up a ball point pen. Dang it! Oh well, I already had enough with the old one and this new "powerful" one, sucked me in to just installing the new one anyway.

I installed it and sure enough you could feel the sucking motion. I imagine for girls with long hair it makes their hair move towards the bowl when flushing.

Then I had this vision. Imagine a toilet not made of ceramic or porcelain. A complete clear plastic toilet. This way, you could not only be entertained watching your crap make its way down the drain, but you could see the exact cause of any clogs that might be preventing you from having a good day.

Would that be an awesome patent or what!

When I saw the title to your post, I thought that you were talking about "Gords Dice Game" and I say that you definitely should :) My family played it when my brother was in town and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks again!!! I love it :)

As for the toilet, there are some people who would love it. Personally, I think it would be very difficult to keep clean.
