42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower - 7 Percent Never Bathe
PISCATAWAY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash) -- Urine trouble now. According to a new survey, at least four out of every 10 Americans pee while taking a shower.
According to a shower survey sponsored by VertiSpa, 42 percent urinate while bathing, certainly pissing off the 58 percent who don't.
That's not the only stat splashed from the shower study. The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water.
-- 52 percent of Americans sing in the shower, with "Singin' In The Rain" being the top tune.
-- 53 percent of people shower in the morning, while 29 percent wait until evening.
-- Finally, the scariest stat of all: 7 percent of Americans claim they never bathe at all.
" if you are lost in the woods and something needs to be flushed out of your eye, urine is the best thing. "
Wow--sure'd like to meet the guy who could do that!
"Unless you have physical problems you can hold it a minute or two."
But why bother? It's just urine, which is fairly harmless, and I'm standing right over the drain, so down it goes.
It's all pipes..what's the difference!
I had a huge fight with my girlfriend about eight years ago (and eventually broke up) because I insisted that everyone has peed in the shower at some point in their life.
She went eewwww!, and insisted that she never, ever peed in the shower or bath, even as a kid.
At the time, we were laughing it up at a party and having a few brews and one by one, everyone admitted (even the girls) that yes, they too had peed in the shower, even if only once.
But my girlfriend, as the night went on, got madder and madder when some people kept insisting that everyone has peed in the shower, and those who deny it are just lying.
To make a long story short, she got really ticked off at me for bringing up the subject, and we ended up breaking up about a week later.
Actually, only 7 percent of them bathe. Of that 7 percent, 98 percent piddle in the tub.
>>Put another way, as urine is so harmless, would you pee in your own swimming pool? Would you pee in your own bath?<<
I got three little letters for ya: PPM
I used to have a employee who would go to the gym everyday at lunch time, his name was Punch Boy and he did a whole lot more and made a gooey mess every single day.
They finally had to ban him after the towel lady had a huge fit.
Soaking in piss.
>>It's just urine, which is fairly harmless, and I'm standing right over the drain, so down it goes.<<
That pretty much sums it up...
The real question is how many Americans will flush the stinking full of crap johns on election day.
>>I got three words for ya:
Soaking in piss.<<
You pee in the tub? Ewwww!
Uh, no. Just because YOU pee in the shower does not mean that you are in the vast majority.
No, I don't.
Those stats have to be wrong. There's got to be more than 7% who are democrats.
Oh yeah, well me and the wife....oh never mind...
Test it by taking your normal shower with the drain plugged, and see how full the tub is when you're done.
I guess your girlfriend got pissed off (which is better than getting pissed on)
Not many people admit to self gratification, but those that do are hardly a vast minority.
"They saw an orangutan stand on his head and pee in his own mouth"
LOL! The talent of some guys is just amazing!
Just leave your socks and underwear on ;-)
Pee has been used as antiseptic on wounds if I'm not mistaken.
Something is fishy here. Most have no idea of the temperature or number of gallons used and I really doubt that someone that doesn't shower would fill out the survey.
Well how do you think they got hot??
And I wonder how many people pee in the ocean [...]
You mean besides millions of whales and billions of fish?
>>Just because YOU pee in the shower does not mean that you are in the vast majority.<<
I believe that is a logical fallacy combo. It is a "red herring" coupled with a Straw man. The two ideas are not related (hence "red herring") and the logical conclusion you attribute was not what was said (straw man).
Let's have a show of hands... Er, wait, bad choice of words.
Uhhh, *ahem* I have no idea what you're talking about.
That reminds me.
Question: Why did the fly fall off the toilet??
It got pissed off.
I just found out the owner of the company got on him about it today. From what I gather, it is not the first time. The guy is not firing on all cylinders, to say the least.
It gets worse. My local YMCA took out their hot tub because the gays kept getting too "handy" with each other while soaking. Makes you think twice about even getting in a hot tub - friend of mine calls them "AIDS wells."
I would imagine it could be done, but not without soiling your garments.
Salute to a true American...
I don't pee in the shower ever :D
It's just urine, which is fairly harmless, and I'm standing right over the drain, so down it goes.
That pretty much sums it up...
Not to mention that there's all this shower water washing it all away...
what is actually "bad" about urine?
I think it is considered a waste product. But don't quote me.
Actually urine is a product used in industry. The medication Premarin is made from PRegnant MAre uRINe. Urea and ammonia are extracted from animal urine, urea used in fertilizer and even hand cream (check the ingredients), and ammonia is used in toothpaste (the Greeks and Romans used urine to whiten their teeth!)
I'm sure michael moore falls into the 7%. At 350+ lbs, he probably cannot find a bathtub or shower large enough to fit into.
I don't know if it's true or not .. but a friend of a friend knows a guy that says he was hired, for a while, with three other people to help wash him down. He said they used a pressure washer and brushes and then squeegee'd him off afterwards.
I once read a series of jokes similar in style to Jeff Foxworthy's, "You know you're a redneck if...", but these all started, "You know you're a white person if..." The punchline in most of them implied that white people are too anal and uptight. When I got to the one about, "You know you're a white person if you get out of the shower to pee", my reaction was, "yeah, I do that, and now that I think about it, *why*??"
As you say, a paradigm shift. It's the same damned plumbing, and at least in the shower any risk of splashback is immediately washed clean. Plus it saves dripping water all over the floor. But unlike George, it's not something one should do in a communal shower.
It's different, Petronski. When you pee in the shower it just flushes right down the drain, unless it drains slow, in which case you're standing in it for a little while. Hope you don't let anyone in your shower because if you do I guarantee it's been peed in.
Actually, I just go roll around in the dirt and then brush off. Seems to clean me up just fine.
Also, I knew this guy, Mexican, who never seemed to have any TP. I asked him why and he said he preferred the shower, that he felt cleaner afterward.
Yeah, probably not something to tell the g/f about. I can see how that could end a relationship. She probably could never look at you the same after that.
Something about mixing it with dirt to make a poultice.
I believe any ammonias used in consumer products are manufactured in chemical plants, not in equine bladders.
