The Fun-Killing Toilet?!

There’s a British start up that’s taking aim at all workers wanting a little bit extra on their toilet breaks. StandardToilet have designed a toilet that comes with a slanted seat. Therefore making it less comfortable to sit on for extended periods. What an awful idea, ruining our fun!

It has a 13 degree slope on it, making it painful to sit on for more than 5 minutes!

This new fun destoroying idea will set back bosses a whopping $200 to $650! It is designed to improve efficiency at companies. As the uncomfortable seat will discourage employees from messing on their phone whilst on the toilet. That’s quite an amount of money when a regular toilet costs FAR less. Especially ones bought en-masse. Why would bosses fork out this much money on a toilet? Because their the devil, that’s why!

StandardToilet, the devil’s partner, stated in a press release

“In modern times, the workplace toilet has become private texting and social media usage space…with the advent of flexible zero hour contracts it is easy to see why our StandardToilet can be an asset to a business.”

If you’re not into the traditional hen night parties, but still want to celebrate your last days of single life in style, then you may be struggling to find something that’s still fun, will be enjoyable for everyone and that doesn’t fall into the typical party and crazy nights out that seem to be the tradition over the last few years.


The good news is there really are plenty of options out there if the party thing isn’t your scene, so in this post we’re going to share with you some cool ideas for hen nights that are fun and a bit different.


Murder mystery evening:


If you and your friends have a more adventurous side and enjoy a bit of mystery and teamwork, then a murder mystery evening is a really fun way to spend your hen night. You’ll find these being hosted all over the place and with many different types of themes. You’ll get to dress up and really feel like you’re part of a murder mystery game or movie, so it’s definitely a night none of you will forget in a hurry and is something that pretty much everyone will enjoy.


Treasure hunt:


You may think a treasure hunt is only for children at Easter or Christmas, but in the last few years they have been gaining much popularity with adults, and for good reason. Companies like Cluego are experts in providing a great treasure hunt experience for adults looking for something a little different than the typical party night out.


Ghost hunting:


If you’re into the supernatural side of things, then a ghost hunting experience could be just the thing you’re looking for during your hen night. You can choose from multiple experience types, such as castles, old buildings that are no longer in use, underground tunnels, or even hotels where you can stay overnight and enjoy a full-on creepy ghost hunting experience for your hen night which is definitely a lot different and more memorable than the traditional party.


Escape room:


Escape rooms and panic rooms have become hugely popular in recent years, and are such a fun and memorable way to spend time with friends, so would definitely be a great choice if you’re looking for a hen party with a difference.


Spa weekend:


If you’re looking for something different, but prefer relaxing over chasing ghosts or solving murders, then a spa weekend with your girlfriends is going to be a great choice. You’ll find many spa offers for very reasonable prices all over the country, so whether you prefer a trendy hotel in the city or a cozy lodge in the middle of the mountains, you’ll definitely find something to help you unwind and relax before the big day if partying isn’t your thing.


Mixing classes:


You certainly don’t have to have a wild night of partying to enjoy a few cocktails with your friends – and what could be better than learning from a professional how to mix your own? You can find mixing classes all over most towns and cities and it’s definitely a fun way to spend a night with your friends.

Loop Ball

Loop Ball

This is Loop Ball, a racket ball game that keeps score itself and even records the speed of the players hits!!

Posted by How To Kill an Hour on Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Loop Ball is a smart way to play racquetball and it’s not a technique either, the ball is smart enabled! So the ball becomes the count and measure to count how many times the ball has been hit by each player and the distance between the two of them. The ball also becomes the referee, tracking accurate and safe metrics for the game and stores your games so you get the ability to share them with your friends!

Check out the video below to see more! (The product was once called Smartball)

BallieBallerson is an adult play pen set over two floors; the underground club is kitted out with 250k clear balls set upon an LED dancefloor.

Upstairs the bar is decorated with plasma balls and glow in the dark murals that are charged with UV light blasts whilst DJs spin funk and ragged house.

Cocktails are themed around the planets; Neptune is based on charcoal and liquid nitrogen; the helium rich Saturn is garnished with a floating balloon; and Uranus, which is undrinkable until you’ve eaten the Miracle Berry pill provided.

Buy a ticket for entry where you can enter and exit the ball pit as many times as you like in your time slot.
