We reportedly spend an average of 92 days in a lifetime on the toilet and 1.5 years in the bathroom, so we might as well profit from it.

As long as you're getting remunerated for being at the office, you might as well be compensated for answering nature's call there, right?
To determine your excremental earnings, simply type in your salary, how often you go, and for how long. (Remember to shift the currency from pounds to dollars.)

Not bad for sitting down on the job.
