(Newser) – Some people can't help pissing away money. And for them, a Japanese company has introduced a $130,000, crystal-covered toilet, reports CNET. Called the Satis, this luxury commode is covered with 72,000 Swarovski crystals, and is on display at the company's Tokyo showroom. "2011 was a really tough year for Japan, with the earthquake and tsunami disasters," says a rep for Lixil, the brand behind the crystal throne. "We wanted to do this to cheer everybody up just before Christmas."

Unfortunately, the Satis is just a display model, and is not for sale. But those who insist on installing the finer things in every corner of their home have some other options—like this toilet, which features an MP3 player, heated seat, and self-cleaning mechanism. And at $130,000, the Satis still comes up $4.7 million short of one golden toilet.
