I do not know, but it worked great for potty learning with my children. And as sure as I put my hands into a sink of dirty dishes to be washed I have to run myself!! Perhaps because I hate dishes! LOL LOVE MY DISHWASHER!

I am sure that when doing a wee wee..the most used sense is the hearing of the wee wee as it trickles into the toilet...and it sounds like....cos it is...running water !!

LOL you is tired young man , But I think I get your general drift. Urinating sounds like running water therefore when you hear water running you get the urge to do some running yourself! LOL!

Yes I believe your right and everything you have seen and done for the last year or two is all in your head too! When you wake up from your sleepy study, all refreshed, LOL and ready to take on the world the world you will see that all of these thing have been just a mere figment of your wild imagination!! LOL

My good doctor. A pleasure to see you here again. Sincerely!!

Well, I could say that few people realize that the Eustachian tube, connecting the inner ear with the throat, actually is formed from tissue that during the ontology of the fetus is originally part of, then separates from the genetal-urinary tissue. However, nerves from both systems fuse and function in concert, thus causing the noise of running water to generate a need to urinate.

If i did say this, though, I would be blowing smoke up your arse so I will not offer this as a reason.

I believe the answere to be psychological and if I remember correctly, aren't you some way connected with this profession?

Any more clarification will result in the transmittal of a list of charges.
