Good stuff!
Its like the portapotties at a concert too!
And the ice in the urinal is only good when you’re the first one to piss on it!

I can assure you there is no randomness to this piss-ice at all.

A Japanese study that was conducted a few years back showed that men are more acurate and that the toilets need cleaning less when they have something to aim at. One Japanese Urinal company has started putting a small red dot embedded into the porcelain on their new range of single person units. Another company has rather comically glued a small plastic fly to theirs, all in an effort to help men not to piss all over the floor.

I give a big personal thanx to these guys as there’s nothing worse than wading through a puddle of someone elses piss to get the the loo.

haha, great comic

I’ve always been curious about the ice thing as well, I finally googled for it and found this: http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/4880

One of the reasons ice is put into the urinals, is because cold pee smells less. I’ve you’ve ever walked through an alley that’s a haunt for late night, post-bar “relief” when it’s 70 degrees out, you know what I mean.

Yup, I always figured it was for suppressing smell and the “flush” effect (I’ve always seen the ice in old urinals that have no flush mechanisms–you know, the kind that run all the way down into the floor), but I didn’t think of the others that were listed there. Thanks for the link!

Someone installed a bulls-eye (with score rings!) in one at my office. I only wish they had also installed the rules and a scoreboard.

Those Icecubes are surely fun to pee on, but in germany, we even have special toys installed in restrooms of some bars.
Like little cogwheels or gears that start to rotate once you hit them.
Some of them make weird sounds, or even have some LEDs installed, so it even produces a ligtshow!
All those devices, installed in Urinals, are a convinient way to make men pee right into those urinals, and not splatter any urin at the surrounding space.
This keeps toilets clean, smell good and saves even money for cleaning!
Melting Icecubes is much more inexpensive though, but composing funny melodies by peeing in urinals, makes you even stay longer in that bar and order even more beer!
A perfect example of capitalistic symbiosis: It makes customers spend more money, makes easyer to save YOUR money, and is a pleasure to all who participate!

Well, this certainly has been the most educational ALP so far, for both you guys and us girls. Someone will have to sneak me into a boys room one of these days so I can witness this myself….

Abe’s head seems to be too big to actually stand that close to the urinal… that’s kind of funny to think about.

the ice cubes in the urinals do make the pee smell less. to smell something, it is required for vaporized molecules of that substance to enter you nose. thus, if you lower the amount of piss that vaporizes, you decrease the smell.

Hmm, this is true, of course.

In This case, if you could manage to cool down the urinal and the flushig-water, you would have a “smell-free” urinal of some sorts!
Surely something scientists should work on…

I think we should ask the Japanese, they’re always good at inventing stuff relating even the most basic household devices.

I can’t help but suspect this isn’t real:

Noone else has mentioned the other game: racing the flush where you flush then see if you can finish first and thus still have a clean toilet.

As someone who actually lives in Japan, I have not found a toilet that has a red dot or any sort of thing to aim at, nor have I found a toilet with internet access, nor have I seen one that ‘makes music’.

There are, however, toilets that make bird sounds on the like to cover up the sound that generally accompanies using a toilet, heated seats, and remote controlled flushing toilets.

I’ve never figured that last one out.

If, after all, you’re using the toilet, wouldn’t you be close enough to flush it manually? It strikes me as a giant practical joke device, since bidet, and other fun buttons are also on said remote…

simply put, the ice is there because they clean out the feezers every now and then, or they empty out their coolers (at least in bars)

i used to work in a bar that tossed the old ice into the urinals just because we wanted to toss it somewhere fun.

Oh no no. I quite like being a girl. The whole “having to wade through pee” thing..and the concentration. I don’t need to aim and mine goes flush flush flush all the way home.

I’m a happy duckling with bigger mirrors, doors that close, and cleaner. We also get nicer smelling soap..^_^

I’m sure if I sat on a toilet seat every time I wouldn’t have to worry about aiming. Try peeing standing up, and then tell me if you could use something to aim at.

The water in one set of toilets at work (a university) is broken and there’s a huge sign saying now to use them.

Today, I had to go in there to change t-shirts after bicycling to work. Ewww! It stank so bad because men ignore those signs because they can pee in the fullest toilet bowl.

I have no problem on aiming to the toilet seat. I mean thats easy unless you already had sex or you were playing with your self. That will make peeing DIFFICULT. :lol: [/b]

Girls can pee standing up.. almost as easy as guys do… it helps if you have on a skirt. And yeah.. it would make it easier if you had something to aim at! :lol:

Well, having travelled extensively through the third-world, I know all about ‘popping a squat’ as an American friend of mine called it. Yes, peeing without a toilet is a skill that needs to be practised to become an expert if you’re a girl. Something to be proud of, certainly.
Still, the grass is always greener… I think I might like to be a boy for a day; just to try it out. The whole writing-my-name-in-the-snow thing would be awesome.

Last time I was in NYC, I saw the fly-on-the-urinal thing at the airport (LaGuardia, I think).

Actually we say, “copping a squat”… :lol: I’m sure I could write my name in the snow if I so chose… I just don’t like the idea of my bare cheeks in the snowy air. :shock:

Who in the world would rather be a guy?

The toilets stink, the damned thing won’t stay down, there’s all this bullshat about size, and most importantly nothing on a guy works the way it’s supposed to.

Be glad you’re female.

Girls-only urinals hit Australia
January 19, 2005 – 2:17PM

Women, rejoice! One of the last bastions of gender inequality is about to be banished and with it the long, long line for the ladies’ loos.

And while it might not be every gal’s cup of tea, the organisers of this year’s Big Day Out concert in Melbourne reckon the girls-only urinal will get a standing ovation.

The Shee Pee, as its affectionately known in Europe, will make its Australian debut at this year’s Melbourne event in a bid to cut loo queues and offer women a more hygienic option to conventional toilets.

And while organisers agree it might take some a little practice, they believe women will quickly adapt to the idea of peeing while standing.

“After the huge success of the female-only urinals at the Glastonbury music festival in Britain last year, we thought it was definitely a service that women at the Big Day Out in Melbourne would really appreciate,” Big Day Out promoter Vivian Lees said.

The Shee Pees concept works thanks to a disposable, leak-proof paper funnel which gives women the freedom to stand.

The funnels can also be used to avoid sitting on conventional toilets, which will also be provided at Melbourne’s Big Day Out.

The funnels, called P-Mates, are distributed in Australia by Small World Enterprises.

Company spokesman Kees de Jong said it was “simple to use” with pants, skirts and dresses, however P-Mate hostesses would be on hand to offer guidance where it was needed.

“The P-Mate is a convenient, hygienic, discreet solution to the long queues and other problematic circumstances which confront women, particularly at large events,” he said.

The Shee Pee and P-Mate were first used at music festivals in the Netherlands and featured at the Glastonbury festival for the first time last year.

Big Day Out organisers said the stand-up option could be rolled out across the country if the trial is successful at Melbourne’s January 30 event.

Big Day Out festivals are held across Australia every year in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and on the Gold Coast.

Followup to She Pee:

As far as injuries were concerned, there should not have been any burst bladders among female fans, with the introduction of the She-Pee. In a Melbourne-only trial, a urinal was set up for women, using cardboard funnels, which allow women to urinate standing up, in an effort to lessen toilet queues.

Sadly, the revolution did not last. By 4pm, the urinal had been returned to male use only, this reporter forced to try the She-Pee in a regular cubicle but, happy to report, able to walk out afterwards without wishing for a clean pair of jeans. Bit weird, though.

A man sitting down to urinate (also humiliatingly know as a “she-pee”) is showing just how emasculated he has become after several rolling-pin beatings from his significant other for leaving the toilet seat up.

I say, if you want me to pee with the seat down, ok, but you get to clean the splash on the seat and my pants.

As a man, the world is our toilet. Popping a squat leaves women horribly exposed (bees, rats, angry badgers, cameras).

And finally, I believe there are fantastic crotch shaped devices for peeing on the go (male and female). Must find a link….
