Who the hell is in charge of these things? Is there some genitaless bastard out there who makes these things out of spite? Or is it some kind of woman?

Allow me to explain.


When you approach a urinal, the first thing you do is get into a close yet comfortable distance. You don't want to piss from 2 feet away such that the tail end of the stream hits the floor. Also, people may see your dick and probably not appreciate it. But WHYY is that bottom area so fucking shallow? I mean your standard urinal is only a few inches deeper at the bottom. So what happens? You piss on the flat back of it, getting splatter inevitably on your feet. Ever use one where the bottom sticks out like a foot? It's GREAT. It's like a hanging toilet. It catches EVERYTHING. Makes no sense that they still make these things this way. And don't try to be cool and act like this never happens, every guy here sometimes get tiny amounts of piss splatter on our shoes and lower pantlegs.


Onto toilets. Ok, I have a dick. It's a nuissance enough on a regular toilet but if the toilet short and shallow I have to hold it the entire time so it doesn't dip into toilet water. This one isn't very hard: make bigger toilets.

Still have the same opinion? :D

I do get what you mean though. At the gym I am currently going to, the urinals have an orange odored screen. And it really has a strong smell. So once you take a leak, it seems like you have orange juice being splashed onto your shoes.

I don't know why that appeared. Tried to fix it. When I posted it, it was working.

Vandy has these AWESOME urinals that have a deep bottom and are very steep slopes on all sides so that when the pee hits it's directed straight down. There's not even a flusher on them because the construction negates the need.

The others that are annoying are the urinals that they place so close together the bowls are a half inch from making out. With American obesity flying out of control I am one to frown in disapproval at a rather large individual meandering up next to me whilst I'm touching my wang.

These "wall urinals" always freak me out: i need some separation. I mean god only knows what happens if you inevitably cross streams.

The urinals that go down to the floor are great, as long as you don't aim straight at the wall of it or you will get splatter. Not the wall ones though as jacknife has referred to. A bit awkward.

LOL I really don't like these ones, but when I'm drunk I'll piss anywhere!

I have experience with the urinals you are talking about.
It all boils down to control and angle of your dangle.

Not when you're drunk. When you have to unload a lot of beer you've got a lot of force coming out of that wang. Now you can try to half-ass your stream or use some kind of burst method, but really I should be able to piss freely. I'm a man, dammit.


Also, dividers are a must and a no-brainer. Would really like to see the weirdo that came up with that design, jacknife. I bet he's weird.

Free?

Similar concept, totally different design.

I feel like this would be the most appropriate time to mention that Vandy also has toilets that you push down on the flusher if there are 'solids' and push up on the flusher if it's only liquid.

Most toilets I've encountered in Europe have a similar concept. Like this, only less nice looking:

We are good at saving water in Europe.

When I flushed an American toilet for the first time I thought it was gonna flood because the water came so high. It creeped me out.

I definitely agree in regards to the toilets. I'd never seen such a thing before, and for months I was just utterly weirded out... I really didn't understand why there were two buttons. Actually, at first, I'd always push the smaller one because I was afraid that the big one did something crazy or bad. I don't know what I was really worried about, but I eventually pushed it to see what it did, and was extremely confused when it also flushed the toilet. :P

However, I think it's silly how over-sized the buttons for flushing usually are here - it's kind of the same with doorbells and light switches. These types of things don't need to be any bigger than your finger - yet usually light switches and doorbells are the size of the palm of my hand, and toilet flushers are bigger than my hand! Yet sinks are ridiculously small...

It's I guess to spread the germs around, so we're not all touching the same area? Seems silly.

Infact all those motion sensored ones are retarded, they often flush just because you lean in another direction. And if you didn't get it all, you gotta what, stand in front for 30 seconds and then leave? Retarded. I saw a motion sensored water fountain today, and the amount it gave was ridiculous. Essentially, everytime someone passed by close enough it ejaculated.

The system should be this handsfree system doctors/hospitals have been using for decades: footpedals. Just hold it down for you sink/waterfountain, or press it once for a toilet. I mean it's absolutely perfect, there's no downside, and yet I've never seen a foot operated toilet.

You made me think of those. So weird. They had a huge one of those in my hometown. Bizarre things.

Yeah, that could be the idea... but it is pretty silly, since a) you're still eventually gonna be pushing the same areas as other people, and b) you wash your hands afterward (hopefully).

There was a thread about motion sensor toilets and stuff a while ago... maybe it was made by skratch? I think there was a consensus that automatic/motion sensor ones suck ass. And I get sooo frustrated when I go into a bathroom (usually in the US... this hasn't happened here) and EVERYTHING is automatic. The toilet, the sink, the SOAP, the hand dryer (because those types of bathrooms never have paper towel - it's always a hand dryer). It's like, this is some of the most modern and advanced technology... how the hell does it all suck SO MUCH?

Dude, I've always wondered about this. We had the footpedal sinks in elementary school, and I have wondered what happened to that idea. It was perfect. The water stays on only exactly how long you need it, and you don't have to touch anything. Perfect. I've never seen a footpedal toilet, either, but a lot of toilets in the US at least put the handle really low toward the ground, in which case I always hit it with my foot. Good enough in my book :P

Why do I have the feeling that this could be modified to not only "scrape the water from your hands"?

most of the toilets at my school do flood everytime we flush them and the ones at the east bathroom in the mall(thank you leeshy) but i hate the toilets with the button at the top that you push. they scare. i hate the sound of flushing it scares me. as for the urinal, i have no idea what to say
