News, but not the serious kind

Gotta go? Relief is in sight, literally…

March 6, 2007

This is a new outdoor urinal being used in China, and it seems like one tiny step up from having nothing at all. No fancy frills like doors, which are for sissies. Just a thin band between you and the rest of the world.

Would you use one of these? It’s easy to say no, but after a big lunch with three cups of tea and a couple of Tsingtao beers in you, your priorities may change. Especially if the alternative is that bar where the urinal was recently stolen for a souvenir.

Let us know what you think of these things via Post a Comment, before they show up in a city near you.

Incredible economical device!. Better this than a wall.

 

I guess that’s better than the walking urinal / potty jacket thing that guy on American Inventor tried to promote. But only slightly.

It’s kind of like riding in the back of a pickup. There’s no way to do it and look cool.
