Can someone explain to me the difference between Diet Coke and Coke Zero? Apart from that one has a white label and one has a black label.

I went to the most amusing toilet yesterday morning. It's on the Waterford Foreshore. You press the elevator-like button to open the door and it says "Welcome to Exceloo!" "We hope you enjoy your evacuating experience!"... or something. Yeah, it tells you to press the button inside to close and lock the door, and that you have 10 minutes before it opens again. Not good if you're constipated. It then plays muzak. I identified one mangled song as "What The World Needs Now Is Love", the old Bacharach classic. After I stopped laughing at the talking toilet and tried to actually pee I found it a little unnerving, with the music and all. And the sign above a light that informed me that if the light starts to flash I'm to vacate the loo immediately because the cleaning cycle is about to begin. Eeep. But eventually (before my 10 minutes was up), I managed to do my buisness, I had to press a button to dispense a measured amount of single ply toilet paper. I then read the sign above the bowl saying that it will flush when I wash my hands or exit. Above the basin were three signs, "Soap", "Water" and "Hand Drier". You had to place your hands in the path of an electric eye to dispense each product. I found it a bit of a contortion to wash my hands under the water while keeping my hands under the eye as well, the dryer was just as frustrating and I didn't bother with it for long. I did notice the toilet had flushed however. As I left it cheerily thanked me for using Exceloo. Lucky I was alone, I couldn't stop giggling.

I think I will wend my way to karaoke tonight, seeing as Matt will be at poker, and I don't wanna be completely bored off my nut.
