i don't get out much, so when i saw an open air toilet in the middle of london i had to get a picture of it.

it would be fun waiting around for rob to squeeze one out - anyone within a mile radius of him and he just can't do it.



  • I have that problem!

  • Moi aussi.

    And yet some people are quite flamboyant about it. Like each ploppy is a celebration of existance or something, and needs to be shown to the world.

  • Stage fright, It's a common problem. Some things should remain private. It's just not the place for hello's and business smoozing, it's just not right. Stop it now - you know who you are, let me pee alone

  • It's the only place a certain MD I used to have (some of you stil have!) ever spoke to me!

  • In Edmund Blunden's account of his experiences in the trenches during WW1, Undertones of war, he gives and amusing and whistful account of how quickly they all loose their inhibitions and get used to the business of communal dumping.

    Patrische: not the old python-under-the-bridge high-stepping no-hands beside the urinal pose?

  • Actually, we should all know from Marie's Struggling Author blog that as soon as you mention toilets, then the comments go into warp drive...

  • The thing about urinals, guys, especially those nasty stainless steel troughs, is splashback. And the thing about sharing a urinal, guys, is that it's not necessarily your splashback.

    This, to me, is unacceptable. Couple the average male's inability to hit the side of a barn door even if he's standing next to it, then you can include me out. Whoever promulgated the myth that men can pee standing up any more than women can, deserves to be shot.

    Urinals are out. Number Twos in public are also out.

  • Oh, and girls, in case you ever wondered why business types wear dark suits: now you know. Splashback
