Peeing Standing Up
« on: 02/06/2009 12:11:14 »
My first visit and I enjoyed John Gamel's piece about newbielink:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/articles/article/to-sit-or-not-to-sit/ [nonactive]. I do pee sitting down if I have to go during the night because this wakes me up less than standing and I don't need to put the light on.... And yes, I also use tissue as part of the shaking/cleaning ritual. However, I would say to John that should he use a urinal wearing sandals or flip-flops he will soon be disabused of the notion that urine reaches the ground only during the shaking process. There seems to be a small but detectable volume of 'splash-back' involved during normal discharge and I've even noticed this effect peeing into a WC. This alone would eventually cause a pong.

More generally, great work, Naked Scientists. All power to your test tubes.

Hmmm, you've given me an idea.......

A 'Splash-back guard'.

I must away to the drawing board and get designing.

Eureka.... or perhaps that should be 'you-don't-wreak-a-so-much-anymore'!

And here it is folks, the great new 'Anti Splash-Back Guard' for the discerning gentleman's urinal.



I would suggest an illuminating sign over the urinal which flashes:

Quote
All right mate, you've been here long enough now.

fixed over the urinal and set to go off after two minutes. Perhaps a bell or klaxon should sound also.

...and not forgetting what my old dad used to say: "Remember son, more than three shakes and you're playing with yourself."

Peeing out in the wilds of nature is so much more fun if you are a man. Having to crouch down with nettles at your rear and the direction of flow threatening to hit your sandals is no fun. My friend has a she pee (no I'm not talking about our lovable little lamb, neilep) no this is a device that helps women to pee like a man. I told her it is not the best invention unless it enables you to pee through your neighbours letterbox. I'm sure Neil will agree.

LOL.. I have never heard of a disposable one.. they do make a plastic female urinal that is like an angled plastic jar with a handle and a lid should you want to pack your urine around a few hours before you dispose of it! LOL.. I have actually tried the plastic one and it stinks!!

Literally, figuratively, or both?

Definitely both..No. 1. Its awkward as hell trying to get your pants down in a car....to position the said urinal....2. In that position the urinal tends to not catch the backflow...3. The smell of urinating in an enclosed cab of a truck or car is seriously a smelly Business.... not good! Frankly storing jugs of urine in your car is less then appealing...to say the Least. I have ridden in a Semi traveling cross country and the urinating thing sucks big eggs. Most long distance truck drivers have Little time for stops these days because of very ridgid schedules. so they generally have two or three gallons of urine stored under their beds..... YUCK!!!! Smelly business indeed..

 Dude I'd rather pull over and find a bush then pea in a urinal while traveling.

I don't understand one thing that when people know that they are going on long journey then why don't they use the loo and then leave the house :-\. It sounds so stupid apart from those who've got some medical problems of course.
Its a bit surprising for me becasue I never knew that people can pee in the cars as well :o

If it's a long enough trip then peeing before you set out doesn't help much.

If you are medically fit then I am sure it does help
I didn't use the loo in about 8 hours flight I didn't even leave my seat for a minute

Old age makes you have to pee more often. I can't make it through the night anymore. I used to.
