Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

What a Child Might Say a Generation after Small Teleportation Devices Are Invented

“Grandpa, what were toilets?”

I was inspired by a recent article on 10 Terrible Tech Frustrations My Toddler Will Never Have. The development of small teleportation devices that can fit inside a bladder or colon would explain why characters in SF stories almost never have to go to the bathroom.

When I was a kid in the 1970s I was frustrated by all the time wasted in bathrooms and thought that when we finally got Trek style teleporters, it was OBVIOUS that we'd teleport excrement out of ourselves.

I got funny looks for expressing this idea aloud.

The thought of the excrement teleporter getting a tad out of alignment, and teleporting away a bit of your rectum along with the excrement, is not a happy thought.
