Just heard a comedian say, "the weather is so hot outside that the cow on the paddock nearly fainted, they say that he was trying to win the Nobel Prize for being outstanding in his field"   :D :D

Some sort of stainless steel receptacle? With a reflection of a light?

Yes, correct (although it looks pretty stained to me  ;))

Freiburg, in the far SW of Germany. It's actually warmed up to -9C now, so that's alright....We're under a temperature inversion at the moment, and the cold air has decided to sit here for a bit. It's a balmy 0C at 900m in the Black Forest, whereas we are at 250m.

No idea what you are talking about but no, not a spitoon.

Ah, I have found myself a map of Germany, Freiburg... hmm... how far are you from the Black Forest? Is that -9 degrees outside or inside?

Freiburg is on the western fringe of the BF on the southern end. It's perhaps 60 km north of Basel. -9 outside!

Urinal?

So you're saying that those streaks down the front of the bowl are pee? You'd have to wonder why C4M has a photo of a men's urinal handy...*shudders*

But I think that you may be right.

Weeell, those runnels could just be splash-back from the flush, which judging from the small flow at the back, might have just finished.

The shape of the lip is a bit odd for a urinal though - it seems to curve in just a little, which doesn't seem to be a good idea for a urinal.

Not a urinal, but close!

If I was being tricky, I would say yes, but its a bit more than a sink.
