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.
I'd like to post a reply but I have to go.
Which brings up the point: Other than the fact that it just "seems" disgusting, what is actually "bad" about urine?
Did it say how many "Air America" radio hosts do the same on Christmas trees? It's at least around 10% or higher.
hmmmm, now i swear i've seen that word somewhere before... aha! got it! a town in maine... so to "bathe" is to visit a town in maine, no??
I think it is considered a waste product. But don't quote me.
Maybe if women didn't have such a fit about leaving the seat down......
"It's all pipes"
Distubring question two: what kind of thought processes go into deciding that this would be a good survey to answer?
"We have a guy where I work who is so rank, that when I walk into the sales office where he works, I am hit with his stench."
Has anyone ever said anything to him and if not, couldn't he be reported to some sort of a superior?
Just how long a shower are they taking? I'm in and out in five minutes, eight if I am hot oiling my hair.
Unless you have physical problems you can hold it a minute or two.
When I was a kid, my friend's family had a sign on the gate that said "Welcome to the ool. Notice there's no P, and please try to keep it that way."
I pee in the shower, even when I'm not taking a shower. :-)
" But the water will turn purple!!!"
Don't pee in my swimming pool and I won't swim in your toilet!
Perhaps you are the height of sophistication and erudition, but I will continue to piss exclusively in toilets or behind trees.
Put another way, as urine is so harmless, would you pee in your own swimming pool? Would you pee in your own bath?
"And I wonder how many people pee in the ocean and in swimming pools."
Well atleast the fish use an outhouse instead of just relieving themselves in the water. (^;
Country Club manager: Mr. Dangerfield, sir, there have been some complaints about your peeing in the swimming pool.
Mr. Dangerfield: Yeah? So what. A lot of people do that.
Country Club manager: Not from the diving board, sir.
Me too! :-)
