#1780 – Higher

Most urinals I encounter have the same basic shape. Every once in awhile I come across a really new or really old design. The newest ones Ive seen are waterless and have some sort of chemical in the bottom that is lighter than pee. So the pee sinks and the chemical stays on top sealing out the horrors below.

  1. I’ve seen some pictures online of urinals with really weird designs, like a face with a big, open mouth or so, and I find that quite disturbing. I think that some things can be made more interesting with an odd design, but urinals and toilets aren’t supposed to look like anything else than urinals and toilets! :3

      I recall a joke about a Golden Palace, where a guy claims that everything was gold including the urinals. His wife calls the next day, finds out that he wasn’t bluffing. The call end with, “Hey Lou. I think I found the guy who pissed in your sax last night.”

    If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

    Finally, American potty-ers have put a little symbol on urinals (I’ve seen a shell, in blue), to give guys a target. The Dutch figured that out years ago, putting the image of a realistic fly on the ceramic, which cut _way_ down on misses and cleanup for the janitorial staff.

    Either those aliens are really tall, or they don’t pee from the same spot humans do.

    That said, urinals and toilets come in all shapes and sizes the world over…and not all are the flushing type or require you to sit as if in a chair. Some squat with a hole in the floor (and places to place your feet) and others have a bidet. Chamber pots often have had a political person’s face in it or a written verse that said, “Use me well, and keep me clean, and I’ll not tell what I have seen.”

    For a few examples! Read the books by Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader and you’ll learn more than you ever wanted to know…

    When I was in grad school, they had weird “Female Urinals” in half the stalls of the women’s rooms. They were some kind of weird urinal/toilet hybrid with no seat. I tried using one once, when all the toilet stalls were occupied. They were very strange and uncomfortable, and for some reason a few inches taller than the toilets. I’m not sure who thought that one up.

    Chris’s comment at the bottom simultaneously reminded me I wanted to look up how waterless urinals worked and explained how they did.
