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.
"The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water. "
Mine's hotter but uses FAR less than 50 gallons. If accurate, that's a ridiculous amount of wasted water!
I'd always been told, and read, that a drawn bath used more water than a shower. Methinks these stats are offbase.
7%, hey? They must be the ones that go to anti-Bush marches and watch Farce-n-Hype 9/11.
Nothing so underrated as a hot shower and a good pee...at the same time. (For men only; ladies, do not try this at home.)
ewwww must be the same percentage of Americans that they polled in favor for John Kerry as president at the latest F-9-11 movie outings.
Wonder what percent I am in, I pee in the shower when I am not bathing? Saves water, you know.
It's all about "time management".
methinks piscataway is in new jersey.
and who measures their shower temp much less the amount?
Uh oh! If the French ever find out what "bathe" means, and what a "shower" is, we'll never hear the end of this from them!
If I pay for the water and I enjoy the water, who is to say it's wasted?
Once you drill the Kalifornia Water Nazi restrictor plug outta the back of the shower head, it will flow plenty of water.
ELAINE: Mmm, what happened?
GEORGE: Nothing, I... said it was a little problem.
ELAINE: Yeah? What was it?
GEORGE (defensive): Well...I was in the locker room showering, and I...I had to go, so...
JERRY: Here we go.
GEORGE: Anyway, I think the guy in the shower opposite saw me. He gave me a dirty look.
ELAINE: You went...in the shower?
GEORGE: Yeah, so what? I'm not the only one!
Are you kidding?! That's the only time we can do that standing up!!
Those dirty, stinking liars.
I got 'em all beat, I can pee, brush my teeth and shave whilst showering and have.
If I could figure a way to do the laundry in there, I'd be the model of efficiency.

great France really is taking over after all
And yet polls show that at least 35% of Americans are Democrats.
How exactly does one "waste" water? It starts as dirty water on the earth, is clarified, is used in the shower, is returned as dirty water to the earth. Water clarification and purification processing capacity can be wasted, but this process DOES NOT waste water.....
