Man Pays $25,000 to Get His Name on University Toilet

Venture Capitalist Brad Feld has paid the University of Colorado in Boulder $25,000 for the naming rights to the men's toilet on the second floor in the high tech hub. Feld reportedly made the same offer to his alma mater but was rejected.

For his thousands, Feld, who claims to have often been inspired while on the toilet, gets a plaque with his name and the quote 'The best ideas often come at inconvenient times. Don't ever close your mind to them'.

"I just wanted a plaque outside of the men's room to inspire people as they walk in to do their business. It's a good time to reflect. It's a quiet moment," said Feld.
