(Some Guy)   Why bars put ice in the urinals. No, it's not because some people like Budweiser on the rocks   (brokensecrets.com) divider line 26

Damn, I thought they were putting it there so I'd have somewhere to keep my beer cold while taking a whiz.
I'm pretty embarrassed right about now.

Actually, urine is good for getting the taste of Budweiser out of your mouth.

Honestly, I doubt any of these are the real reason bars do it. More likely is that they do it to discourage drunk people from pooping in the urinal.

The My Little Pony Killer: I find it really sad that guys need to be entertained as they take a piss.




You mean it is different from women always needing to go to the bathroom together so they can have someone to talk to?

Mr. Mackey: Excuse me! Can we get back to the issue, please? You all don't seem to understand how serious this is. Now who made dookie in the urinal?

**CLASS LAUGHS**

Mr. Mackey: Oh, you think it's funny, huh? M'kay. M'kay. You're going to think it's real funny when the police get here.

redmid17: My goal was always to see how much ice I could melt. Gets a little awkward at a crowded trough though.


Just be polite: "Excuse me, pissing through."

offmymeds: I once saw this message scrawled above a urinal: "Please don't put your cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them harder to relight."


And of course there's the old favorite, written high on the wall above the urinal, "If you can read this, you're pissing on your shoes."

blatz514: Mr.Poops: From personal experience, I always found the bathrooms that have ice in the urinals to smell worse than other bathrooms.

*clicks profile*

Yep, figured.  See my above post.  Most of the bars that have ice in the urinal are farking shiatholes.  My favorite kind.


My kinda place as well. As the Ol' Man used to say: "You wanna go some place wearing a tie and ordering a martini, or do you wanna get drunk and maybe get laid?"

CSB: Speaking of dive bars in the South (where I first started drinking, roadside places like the 461 Club outside the metropolis of Greenville NC) it was common for the bathroom to be so bad that most guys whizzed out back. To keep the mess to a minimum bar owners would take a section of concrete road culvert and bury it a couple feet into the ground. The military also does this at advanced bases - gives you a hole to piss in. Anyway, you'd step out back on a hot September night, sidle up to the lip of the culvert, unzip, all switches in the "On" position, and the next thing you heard was the unmistakeable buzz of an Eastern Diamondback. Fetchin' and steppin' commenced.

Burr: Worked at a gas station the summer before college (A fairly big exxon, one that had a deli).

The ladies restroom was the worst of the two, more crap on the fllor and seat, more trash everwhere, mirror had crap all over it, and that damn sanitary napkin "trash can" (box on the wall).  Seriously women, how hard is it to make sure that your damn bloody pads actually make it INTO the damn box in the wall?  I swear, I would go into the restroom to clean it and there would be more tampons and pads on the damn floor then in the disposal area!


I love the joke with the school that has a problem with girls putting lipstick on the mirror, and the janitor shows the girls how he cleans the mirror.

Lor M. Ipsum: Dwindle: That would involve touching something in the restroom. Nice thing about being a guy, you don't have to touch a single thing besides yourself.

This is why you often see a sink running in the restroom. What's the point in washing your hands, then touching the disgusting handle and then dirty town dispenser?

I never quite understood why people don't usually wash their hands  before using the restroom.  Wrapped away in my clean underwear for most of the day, it is safe to say that my junk is the cleanest part of my body...until I walk into a restroom, unzip, and contaminate the clean zone with whatever I've been touching all day.


W

hen I worked in the oilfield, we used to say that you could tell the field hands from the office guys because the office guys washed their hands after they took a leak.

Dwindle: Lor M. Ipsum: Benevolent Misanthrope: Because guys are disgusting pigs who would rather wallow in urine than expend the effort to flush?

While I'm not arguing the "disgusting pig" bit, flushing #1 can be considered wasteful of resources in areas with poor plumbing or when moderate-to-heavy drinking is involved and the urine is mostly water anyway.

That would involve touching something in the restroom. Nice thing about being a guy, you don't have to touch a single thing besides yourself.

Holy crap - your bar has a town dispenser?

:'(  I want a town dispenser.  I'd buy a tiny island somewhere in British Columbia and take my town dispenser there and make myself a town.

The My Little Pony Killer: Mr.Hawk: women always needing to go to the bathroom together

Citation please?

I've never had group outings to the restroom.


The International Center for Bathroom Etiquette states "It is not only appropriate for women to go in groups (preferably holding hands and giggling), it is severely reprehensible for a girl to go alone."

Sir_Farkalot: First of all: Guys, we weren't born in barns, can we please flush so we don't have to PRETEND we're all humans and get embarassed when ladies hear about our dirty little secrets?

Second of all: Please don't write articles ladies are going to see about our dirty little secrets.  It makes them have thoughts like "No one in my house is allowed to pee standing up," and it ruins the ease of urination for us all.


The best part about being a man is you can make your own decision on how to urinate.

i don't know if i've seen ice in the urinal before.

i have seen ice in the horse trough thing before.  meh, if i'm pissing in a horse trough thing, i prefer if there's ice.  prevents splash back, and i don't particularly enjoy staring at pooling pee.  and, it's satisfying to watch the ice melt.  like i can actually destroy something in the real world.

How does ice discourage people from pooping in the urinal?

People find a freezing heel discouraging.


I figured most people just hovered over the urinal, not plop their asses straight down. I don't have any experience in it as I've never pooped in a urinal.

If anything I think it would be a nice cooling sensation on your bum.
