busy chillin': kvinesknows: plus peeing all over your feet helps cure atheletes foot.

poop is hard to clean up though and feels gross in the toes

Toes? Heel that sh*t down the drain.


you cant heel or Toe corn properly to fit down the drain, eventually you just have to pick it up. And thats disgusting!


plus the heavier poop particles end up sitting in the shower trap for longer and smell wafts up.

I pee in the sink, in fact, I prefer it.

sigdiamond2000: highendmighty: Wow! I've learned that many people wipe their ass standing up.
I thought my son was uniquely strange, as I've never heard about the standy-wipe until he potty-trained himself and I saw it in action.

There was a Fark thread about this a couple years ago, linked to an actual study if I remember correctly.

Something like 10-20% of people wipe their ass standing up, but they all think everyone does it that way and that everyone else is crazy for not standing up with sh*t hanging out of their ass.


This is some unexpectedly liberating knowledge. I was concerned that he'd get laughed at at school; but if it's relatively normal, I'm not going to force the issue on him. To each his own. God bless the standers.

wildcardjack: Let's get this outta the way...


I've been thinking we're silly about water usage. We use it once and it's gone.

Ideally we'd use wash water to flush out toilets, but that's more involved than most people would go for.

LordOfThePings: Sitters Vs. Standers was one of the most enlightening threads ever.


See, I'm reading this and I still don't understand: "I have concluded any extended bathroom venture the same way: sitting down, toilet paper bunched in my right hand, reaching back and around my body and gently wiping upwards, balls to butt." When I am sitting on the toilet, there is no room for me to stick my hand in behind me and if I were to resort to a forward wipe my hand would be in the toilet.

Are you who claim to be "sitters" actually standers, you're just partially standing (leaning forward and raising up but still not sitting, which your weight on the bowl) as opposed to what you consider to be standing, which would be fully standing?

I don't understand why governments aren't trying to encourage greywater systems, where water from the sinks and diswashers are used to flush the toilets. That alone could probably cut water use in half.

Same here. It's all about making less noise.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who does this.

Bathroom sink or kitchen sink? I've done both, also the utility sink in the garage.

Outside of a washing machine and a dishwasher, I don't think there's an appliance or something hooked to the plumbing that I haven't peed in

Drinking fountain at work?

No water fountain at my office.

BusyBeinBorn: You hear running water, you pee.


See, I don't have that problem. For me, it's temperature changes. I can go to the bathroom, pee until I am positive I am dry, jump in the pool and immediately (like, within 10 seconds) have to jump back out because I again feel the need to go.

I'm house-sitting for a friend who owns a hot tub. Never fails: pee, get in the tub, and instantly have to pee again.

Thankfully, the house is in the middle of nowhere, so I just jump out and pee off the deck. Still, wtf?

redmid17: Langdon Alger: my girlfriend in college could pee in the sink in my dorm room so she didn't have to go down the hall to the community style bathrooms and risk being caught by an RA for visiting after hours. She was good at it too because she had a small bladder and always had to pee after sex.

Girls don't pee after sex because they have a small bladder


It's meant to be two different examples of why she was good at it. After three beers, she had to pee. If we farked like crazy monkey's, she had to pee because she read some health thing one time that women should pee after sex to avoid bladder infections. Her skills allowed her to pretty much stay the night all the time.

I don't piss in the shower.

Not really up on what the word "most" means, arya?


Without more evidence, I'd say "most" is definitely in question here. Just because submitter does it doesn't mean "most" people do it. Half the world is female. I'm guessing shower pissing is more of a guy thing than a chick thing.

This is fark: it's assumed "most" don't shower on a regular basis at all, so obviously the headline is a joke.

How much of the civilized world is actually facing water shortages significant enough to warrant spending significant effort on it? Fresh water sprays up out of the ground pretty much anywhere you drill a hole here.

I'd imagine groundwater would be plentiful in the Netherlands, too. In a place with a lot of rain like that, unless you're polluting it, there's not a limited supply in any practical sense.
 
2013-01-09 06:06:16 PM  
I drink a lot of water and piss like a horse so I've been trying to manage saving water vs having a terrible stinky bathroom.

I've settled on using one of those chemical cakes in the tank of the toilet - but I do wonder if constantly leaching chemicals down the drain isn't worse than flushing a full tank every time I tinkle.

The laundry was moved upstairs when we built on a garage and I got the basement, but there was plumbing still there. When I was really young I lifted the cover over the hole the sump pump was in, but it didn't rain often enough so that wasn't a good idea. As a teenager I actually made a urinal out of a foam cup and attached it to the washer drain. My half-brother and cousins used it when they were over, but I didn't tell my friends about it.

Are you who claim to be "sitters" actually standers, you're just partially standing (leaning forward and raising up but still not sitting, which would mean your weight is on the bowl) as opposed to what you consider to be standing, which would be fully standing?


If I was asked whether I wipe standing or sitting, I would say standing as I also do the slight lift lean forward technique you are describing. I'm neither standing nor sitting at that point technically. Someone literally sitting and wiping I can only imagine the person having shove their hand in their crotch, mashing their dick with their forearm only to then smear shiat forward onto their balls. I can only assume that the "sitters" are lifting off the seat, and the standers are standing fully upright, which is something I've never heard of and would seem odd to me.
