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.

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?
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

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.

Industrial, I'm not sure what you mean by that. Nothing special or fancy (okay, a bit fancy), I saw it in Switzerland and thought it was quite cool! Yes, water does go in it.

Where in Switzerland?

The top of a water cleaner? A ewer? Does the water come out again (pouring, for example), or is it a one-way process?

To be honest I think this is getting out of hand. When I said close to 'urinal' I meant CLOSE!

Is it a sink that also doubles as a hand-drier? You said that it's more than just a sink, so perhaps it has multiple uses....I take it that it's normally found in a Gent's toilet? Or am I peeing up the wrong wall?

Multiple use, yes. But as a sink, it isn't its main usage. It has a very very important use.
