    It tickles and baffles me that with our great advances in modern technology, we still haven't figured out a way to effectively, hygienically, and most importantly' quickly dry our hands in public restrooms. Apart from the paper towels which leaves a big mess that looks like a paper factory exploded, we are still left with that conversation-stopping white box on the wall that blows out hot air.

    Even in the most modern restrooms with funky sinks that look like the next generation iPod, we wash our hands under motion-activated taps and then we stand there like fools under an over-grown hairdryer waiting for our hands to dry. Heaven forbid if there’s someone behind you waiting in line. You feel the pressure. You’re trying to act cool while thinking to yourself “Dry faster. Dry faster. Ahhhh….fukkit!” After three seconds on whatever-the-hell-it-is-you-are-trying-to-achieve, you give up and walk away. Your hands are not dry and you have to resort to the original hand-drying method: Wipe hands on pants.

    And even if you have the patience to stand there to completely dry out your hands, why does the blower stop before the hands are dry? Why didn’t those hand dryer guys do their research and time the thing properly?
