If you do end up eating something that doesn’t agree with you, hightail it to the restroom where you may encounter another surprise:  the high-tech electronic toilet.  Often accompanied by a control panel, each press of a button may unleash something unexpected, especially if you don’t understand the labels.  For a taste of what you might expect, these techno-thrones have functions that include a seat-warmer, a bidet, blow dryer, massage, and sound effects/music.
