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.
Go back and read her post. The conclusion was exactly what she was saying.
"Sorry, I think the number is more like 95%"
And the only evidence she offered was that she did it.
This has the makings of a replacement for "...Moose bit my sister"
>>I don't think ANYONE here is going to claim it's okay to crap in the shower. LOL<<
I'll say! It gets all squishy between your toes...I mean...I imagine it would...*^>
With all due respect, they're both a few orders of magnitude below the peak of civilization.
I'm not telling.

I don't suppose this means that 42% of Americans live alone and don't have to worry about someone getting in the shower after them, does it?
When I was a kid I got in trouble for peeing in the pool.
(It was from the High Dive).
I don't know how to respond to that. Some truths are just self-evident. You do what you want in your shower, and I'll do what I want in mine.
hehe . . only LAMERS pee in the shower
It was self evident to me until I analized the concept with an adult mind. "Civilized people don't do that" is not a reason for not doing a thing. It begs the question, "why not." If there is no answer, then my paradigm shifts and I do the thing, if consequences of doing it enhance my life.
So far they have. 8^>
Funny thing is, when I confessed it to my wife a year ago she said "I know you do." I asked how she knew and she said she can tell by the sound in the shower when I am. Her attitude is "why wouldn't you?" And she means women too!
,,, you just did :)
Okay, I think I got a bead on this: peeing in the shower is adult, not peeing is the shower, not adult. Gotcha.
I have a HUGE bathtub, but then again, I take LONG showers....
I read an article in the paper awhile back that said during WWII the soldiers urinated on their feet to kill athletes feet germs. So fellows when you're in that shower aim for the toes.
Also, my mother said urine would cure the pink eye.

Uh, no. That is not what I am saying.
Avoiding a thing just because it "seems wrong" with no, I repeat, NO evidence to support the "feeling" is what children do. Mature adults are more free than children because they have the intellectual maturity to make decisions based on information at their disposal
It is not the activity that is mature or juvenile, it is the REASON for participating or abstaining that is.
Ever hear the story of the woman who cut the ends off the ham before she put it in the oven...?

I do that and my athletes foot problem has been gone for some time!
