Firstly, I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed this thread, even though it was started by that fruitcake Russell B who excessively crossposted to groups where it is off-topic. (I have cut the groups back a bit in this post, to only those groups where urination is on-topic. Oh, and aft-s, where it isn't, but that's OK.) However, I am a bit bugged by the fact that, as one poster mentioned earlier, this thread discriminates against women. Please see http://www.restrooms.org/standing.html for reasons why this should not be so. Having said that, I'd now like to hear from the ladies. As for my own response to the pee poll I must confess that I do not have a viewpoint either way. I never experience "shy bladder", nor do I ever need to choose between a urinal or a stall. This is because I have an internal catheter running from my bladder to a urine collection bag that is worn against my leg 24 hours a day. This was originally a requirement of my job as a collection officer in a Massachusetts Turnpike toll booth (no bathrooms on the highway, y'know) but I soon found that not having to enter public restrooms was a wonderful advantage, so I made it a permanent part of my lifestyle. In fact, it can be great fun at parties. Recently at a Babylon 5 party at the World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago I entered the bathroom, only to find a young lady examining the different types of beers on ice in the bathtub. "Don't mind me," I said, and lifted the bag out of my pants, opened it up, and poured its contents into the toilet. I then flushed, stuck it back in my pants, washed my hands, smiled at the astonished girl, and left the bathroom whistling. The look on her face was unforgettable; I wish I'd had a camera with me. ** Captain Infinity ... I *demand* that someone make this sentence a .sig quote.
