in Amsterdam Schiphol airport the tile under urinals would pass inspection in an operating room. But nobody notices.

what everybody does notice is that urinal has a fly in it - actually it's the black outline of a fly etched into the porcelain. It improves the aim. If a man sees a fly - he aims at it.

Fly-in urinal research found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%. It gives a guy something to think about.

I always kind of liked those flies in there, I just never knew they actually served a purpose. Who knew urinal design was a science. (PS--I never aimed at the poor fly).

Speaking of piddling i feel inclined to share my concerns. I've got exams at uni right now and there is a horrifying myth circulating that if you need to go pee during the exams then one of the invigilators has to come into the cubicle with you and watch. What do they think we're gonna do? Write exam notes on our knickers? And in the last exam SO many people were willingly getting up and going to the loo! What are they thinking! Clearly i'm working very hard for my exams and not pre-occupied with trivialities of any kind.

Do you suffer from 'shy bladder'? I can't imagine they can come right in the stall with you?? Maybe in the bathroom...They do that for the MCAT's too..

Well whether i have 'shy bladder' or not i'm CERTAINLY not going to be using it during my exam. Will simply have to sit cross legged for three hours.

I'd accidentally piss right on them. Like turn around to ask them a question and ooppss, sorry.

Although I guess that would be easier for me to do than for you girls.

If they can come into the stall to watch me piss then I can piss on them. Seems fair to me.
