Tis a wonder.
ps incidentally, when in the US I obviously did have to go to the loo and discovered two things:
1) Americans are very against hand dryers. Indeed Bloomingdale's have recently removed theirs following a petition.
2) The flushes there are weird. They tend to be automatic; either when you stand up or, more disturbingly, just every 60 seconds or so which can be quite shocking if you are just innocently sitting there having enjoyed an awful lot of complimentary juice at brunch.
