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.
Well, I have never gotton into a hot tub believing that people pee in them. And I wonder how many people pee in the ocean and in swimming pools.
I use approximately 1.5 gallans. Yes, I 've measured it. It goes as follows: \
Turn off water.
Soap hair and head.
turn on water.
Turn off water.
Soap remainder of body.
Turn on water.
Turn off water.
I always pee first so all the rinses are sufficient. 8^>
BTW, if this was broken down by men and women, I am guessing about 90% of men pee in the shower and maybe 10% of women.
LMAO at your addressee list....
"What if you j#rk off in the shower, what percentile would a person be in there?"
Don't know about that, but if it is into the sink, you'll know at least one person who does that!
Who am I? I'm the spawn of the generation of The Great Society, raised on Jerry Springer and fast food, sex-education courtesy of president #42, and if you have something I want you better give it over or I'll take it the hard way.
Let's not go there!!!! :) This thread is already making me cry with laughter.
I have never even considered peeing in the shower. It was never an option for consideration. I thought the Seinfeld thing was a joke. Unbelievable.
"Michael Moore probably never baths over twice a month..."
???Would fifty gallons cover him???
The percentage is low. There is a physiological reaction to warm water... think camp tricks and kids in the bath (or pool). Natural, but lots of natural things are a bit off.
You're a genius.
>>Wow, I never thought I'd be put on the defensive about not peeing in the shower. Tell me, do you also sh*t in the shower?<<
There are actually people who drink their own pee (for medicinal purposes) with no ill effects. Eating your own poop is NEVER a good thing. Lot's of really bad stuff there!
Pee is quite sterile - at first. It's not the disgusting thing one would think at first glance. Check out the threads on military rations hydrated by pee.
>>I have never even considered peeing in the shower.<<
Me neither - until I was 35. I learned what was actually IN pee and one day in the shower I really had to "go" and suddenly thought, "Why not?" It was a paradigm shift and I never looked back.
When I was in grade school I thought sex was gross too!
Michael has to bath in a pond!
Okay, since you brought it up. We have all been told that if you are lost in the woods and something needs to be flushed out of your eye, urine is the best thing.
Now to get personal, I come from a long line of country folk. My great grandmother (as well as everyone else at the time) used a few drops of urine for earaches.
,,, it's supposed to heal cuts faster too.
