You make urine at the rate of about 1ml per minute. When bladder volume starts to exceed 0.5 litres it begins to feel quite uncomfortable. Therefore you've got about 5 hours of relative comfort and then progressively increasing discomfort until you venture to the toilet!

What puzzle me are squat toilets.  It seems that, if I drop my trousers and squat, I'd be defecating in my trousers.  Billions of people use them, so how do they do it?
It's actually not that hard, although it is a strain on the legs if you're in for the long haul.

What scares me are long drop toilets. Especially the really cruddy ones.

Ladies have to squat in the great outdoors all the time. Personally I have never crapped in my trousers. The worst is weeing on a slope and getting widdle on your shoes.

The outside loo on my grandads farm had two holes next to each other going down into a trough. I never tried crapping with a friend but me and my cousin had a winkle together once. It was quite musical.

Just as a side note here, I used to know a young lady who married a fella with the surname 'Rivers'. Nothing strange about that, except her signature then became 'P. Rivers'.
