Men Can't Resist Pissing On Pictures Of Insects In Urinals

According to University of Illinois professor May Berenbaum, men "have a deep-seated instinct to aim at targets" in the urinary sense. Logically, sticking a picture on the back of a urinal will cause men to aim for it like lemmings.

This is where the Thermal Urinal Fly comes in. These Japanese creations are thermally sensitive, so as someone pees on one, the image of the Fly gradually disappears. And by offering up a target/game of sorts, there will theoretically be less mess (provided the sticker is strategically placed. You can get two for $US10, though I'm not sure why anyone would want one for personal use. Do you have a urinal in your house? [White Rabbit Express via Book of Joe via Boing Boing]

    I get why standing up to pee is convenient when out socially or whenever time or space is at a premium. But why would you stand up to pee at home?

      are you serious?
      even if I am falling over drunk I still piss standing up, at home, out, wherever. it's how a man urinates plus the added bonus of less effort.

      if you sit down to urinate your a girl. (unless of course a physical disability/medical condition prevents standing up)

    And if you eat with a fork, you're (not your)
    a dandy, a fop, and a sissy (at least in a
    former age.) The urinal is a work of art, not
    a particularly functional item.

    Only the squat-toilet (properly flushed) is
    an appropriate public device. And it's unisex!

    What you do at home is you're (oops your) business.
