As amusing as it is, this is a terrible idea. I never understood peoples fascination with reading and doing things on the toilet.. Just gross.. Here is why.

1. There are many water spouting objects in a bathroom.

2. You are wiping your ass and all sorts of other crap, chances are pretty high that eventually you will drop your Vita in the toilet or somewhere in the bathroom having to set it down and pick it up again so often. I won't even use my phone anymore in the bathroom because I have actually dropped it in the toilet once, I wasn't even on the toilet.

3. All bathrooms have some type of hard flooring, I don't think I have ever seen a bathroom in my life that doesn't. PS Vita and hard surfaces don't mix.

4. What is so great about doing things on the toilet anyway? When I take a shit, the last thing I want to do is be on the toilet any longer than I have to.. Do people like the smell of their own shit and sitting in it? I even hate the smell of piss.. There is nothing that enjoyable about a bathroom other than relieving yourself.

Here's the one thing I find worthy of highlighting:
Flush for others consideration (while you finish up a match while sitting comfortably), leave the seat down if you have women around, and spray/light a match.

The rest of your points: use common sense. Oh, and don't be a germophobe because we all live with germs, whether we like it or not ;-).

So by your logic I should just shit myself, never wipe and pee myself my bed or wherever I am? Cause germs are okay right? Why even use a toilet if you aren't afraid of disease and germs? Sorry but not all germs are good for you, obviously you know that as well right?

I never really said anything about being afraid of germs either I asked if people like the smell of bathrooms, piss and shit.. Asking why it is such an appealing place for people to do things in there.

I don't have germaphobia either just being logical, also it is germa, not germo.. It isn't homophobia. Anyway my thing is there is no real reason for a person to have to be on their PS Vita in the bathroom is my point.

Most people aren't sitting on the toilet that long anyway and if you are sitting on the toilet for hours.. Go to a damn doctor and get that checked out cause it isn't normal by any means.

If you can't put your Vita down for a couple of minutes to use the bathroom either you have some problems. Or you can't just simply wait until it is more convenient to where you aren't interrupting a game or holding a party up would be the more logical thing to do also.

Yes, spraying things near and lighting matches around your PS Vita sound even more brilliant than sitting on the toilet in a bathroom using electronic devices.

Hell why not play the Vita in that bathtub while you are at it or better yet why not put it in zip lock bag and play it while you take a shower.....

Where are the boundaries you are drawing? You can not EVER get to the point where you can be judge, jury, and executioner to tell everyone's bowels how to function like it's a Pavlovian trick (all because you want to live a society where people shouldn't like to be in a pissy, shitty bathroom for more than a handful of mins).

It surprises me that I should be telling someone about how people are not trained to poo or pee on command (a friendly reminder: even most housepets can't do that!). So, if people want to distract themselves - while in a position they could also be multitasking - FREAKING LET THEM. Whether a person likes the smell of their own (or other peoples) piss and shit is none of any ones concerns (other than that unique individuals). Only proper hygiene and how they interact with other people is of concern.

~Hot tip: Odds are, most peoples senses are not attracted to waste of any kind (most can stand their own musk, but certainly they do not "love" it) and most would take a course of action to get out of a contaminated environment.

And, I understand that you want to make a point about playing a video game in the optimum environment for gaming - as opposed to somewhere in the bathroom - but, that just shows me your not much of a portable gamer and/or not very thoughtful towards how other people might function (other than yourself) when it comes to restroom etiquette. I mean no offense, but you should know that (when people want a distraction and a form of entertainment) it doesn't really matter where they are, because they use that VITA (or w/e) and off they go. Most hygienic and thoughtful people aim not to get anything dirty, and wash their hands after.

p.s. Thanks for the tip on how to spell germaphobe however, in correct scientific terms the word I was looking for is actually "mysophobia"!

Etymology: Gk, mysos, anything disgusting, phobos, fear:

an anxiety disorder characterized by an overreaction to the slightest uncleanliness or an irrational fear of dirt, contamination, or defilement. Also spelled misophobia. -misophobic, mysophobic, adj.


.....Oh, and I really do like the discussion we're having (over all). I never expected such a discussion/argument (still not sure what to call this text writing stream of consciousness) to dive into societies attraction into distraction while doing their dirty deeds. 'Been fun, that's for damn sure! Let's just keep it respectful, aye? ;-)

Has no games so you don't sit on the toilet for a long period of time and your ass doesn't hurt.

7 games, more than half which are on PS3 or are multiplatforms. Oh PS+ ? Good thing Vita comes with a memory card /s

Everyone says this as a joke most the time just to be funny but I don't know anyone who really actually does this with their Vita. Not to say no one does at all but it is rare and questionable as to why you even must play it on the toilet.

Playing totoro while on the crapper is nice. Be sure you have chat engaged and you'll see that the bathroom environment gives your voice an acoustic boost.
