    The notorious Northern Arizona University now has signs outside of on-campus restrooms that ask students to consider whether they have “pee privilege.” “Do you have pee privilege?” one sign questions, informing restroom-goers that if they “never have to think about gender identity, ability, or access when peeing,” then “[they] do.” . . . . “Don’t stare,” the sign continues, suggesting that “this person is probably aware that they don’t fit into either restroom” so they don’t need anymore “eyes reminding them.”

    The White House is reaching out to the transgender community for a list of things that its members want as they follow their lifestyle choices. The initiative was launched with the help of White House Chief Data Scientist DJ Patil, who expressed concern that there is very little data of what the transgender community needs from the government. [Snip] “Jobs, healthcare, housing, a safe place to pee. It’s your time to be heard. Share your #transneeds,” reads a message on the Twitter account calling for everyone to weigh in.

    Public peeing for people with penises is generally no big deal. There’s no sitting involved, no squatting; no dirty toilet seats to deal with and no pulling one’s pants down to one’s ankles. It’s pretty unfair, when you think about it. Jeeeez thanks a lot, anatomy! But if the Malcolm in the Middle theme song taught us anything, it’s that life is unfaaaair. So, in an attempt to even out the playing peeing field for vagina-owners, a company called Stand Up has invented some nifty little contraptions that allow women to piddle without sitting — or, as Stand Up puts...
  • German judge defends right of men to pee standing up

    Landlord took former tenant to court for refusing to pay for damage to the marble floor of the bathroom he said was caused by stray drops from the tenant’s habit of relieving. . . . It might seem standard practice for most men to take aim from a standing position, but some sections of German society have a bizarre obsession with obliging men to answer nature’s call while seated. It is not uncommon to find home-made signs in German bathrooms commanding men to adopt a seated position.

    “URINE and faeces to you”, explains a dodgy sewer-manager in one of Reginald Hill’s crime novels, “is bread and butter to me.” And he is not the only one. The BioEnergy Team, led by Ioannis Ieropoulos of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) in Britain, are hoping to profit from working with the stuff too. They have developed a new technique to turn urine into electrical power—or “urine-tricity” as they call it. People around the world produce an estimated 6.4 trillion litres of urine every year. BRL, a collaboration between the University of Bristol and the University of the West of...

    This one really takes the (urinal?) cake... I myself have spent a bit of time in Europe, and one thing that strikes you as disgusting is the taking-a-leak in public thing- particularly bad the farther East you go (Czech Republic comes to mind). And it's not just drunks at 3am -though there's never any shortage of that- but the carefree, utterly shameless roadside drainage -in broad daylight, as minivans full of families motor by- you even see on the side of the freeway (and not in any woods/weeds or anything, either). But from what I've heard, India is a whole...

    How does a city strike a balance between the needs of the homeless and the needs of those around them? Those questions will be put to the Fort Lauderdale City Commission as they consider two provisions on the agenda at Tuesday’s commission meeting. At the beginning of this year, the Fort Lauderdale City commission sat down to discuss how the city could address the issue of homelessness better. Out of that came ideas about ways to protect non-homeless residents’ quality of life. One of the ordinances up for consideration would prevent homeless people from urinating or defecating in public. The...

    When Viggo Hansen, a county counselor from the Left Party in Sormland, Sweden, tried passing a law that required that men sit down to pee when using the public bathrooms, his motion caused a flood of reactions. Hansen argued when men sit down to pee it is better for public health because it reduces the splatter around the toilets and stops the spread of disease. Hansen is one of many—including the head of the environmental protection agency in Taiwan, Stephen Shen, who also tried mandating such an order—that believe errant urine is bad for public health. They argue that droplets...

    Anthony Weiner can’t even manage to play nice on the playground.The scandal-ridden mayoral primary loser — who reportedly flipped the finger after delivering his concession speech — was spotted at Union Square Park playground with his and Huma Abedin’s son, Jordan Zain, on Thursday when another child had an accident and peed on a swing. We’re told the father grabbed his kid and went to find a napkin to clean up, as Weiner made his way over to the exact swing.A spy tells us Weiner was heard screaming, “Thanks for leaving this thing soaking wet.”

If Ted Cruz and Rand Paul don't pan out, maybe we'll have to run Bieber in the 2013 Republican primaries: at least he'd have a wrap on first-time female voters- of which we probably get about 5% right now.

    The booming deer population in the northern United States is bad for the animal's beloved hemlocks, a new study finds. During Michigan winters, white-tailed deer converge on stands of young hemlocks for protection from winter chill and predators. The same deer return every year to their favorite clumps of the bushy evergreens, called deeryards. The high concentration of deer in a small space saturates the soils with nitrogen from pee, according to a study published online in the journal Ecology. While deer pee can be a valuable source of nitrogen, a rare and necessary nutrient for plants, some deeryards are...

    There's poop in public pools, according to a new report. Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found genetic material from E. coli bacteria in 58 percent of public pools they tested during the summer of 2012. This shows that "swimmers frequently introduced fecal material into pools," which could spread germs to other people, the researchers wrote in their report. E. coli bacteria are normally found in the human gut and feces. They also found genetic material from bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, whichcan cause skin rashes and ear infections, in 59 percent of pools. The fecal material...

    NEWTOWN, CT (WFSB) - The bizarre discovery of 300 gallons of human urine were found in an abandoned home in Newtown over the weekend. Environmental officials removed the hundreds of one-gallon jugs from the residence on Berksire Road. Now, they are trying to figure out why they were being stored in the home. After the home was condemned on Friday, the state hired a contractor who had to pour the urine into large containers so it could be transported to a wastewater treatment plant.

    Members of the Occupy Wall Street movement urinated on a cross, desecrated a church and threw Bibles at police officers in separate incidents over the weekend. Protesters in San Francisco occupied an abandoned hotel and began attacking police – hurling bricks and Bibles at officers. “Once they gained access [to the hotel], some of them made it to the top of the roof and they began to throw Bibles down at the officers,” San Francisco Police Dept. spokesman Carlos Manfredi told ABC News. Several officers were injured in the attack. In New York City, Occupy protesters allegedly urinated on a...

    In the last few days’ news has broken along with a videotape of four United States Marines urinating on some dead insurgents in Afghanistan. It is a little shocking to see just how quickly the American people are to throw our own to the wolves. People tend to act as though this is the worst thing that has ever been done by our military. Going back as far as World War Two there is evidence of routine executions of prisoners as well as torture and mutilation of dead bodies. There are even reports of American servicemen prying teeth from dead...

    RIVERDALE, Ga. -- A substitute teacher at Riverdale Elementary spent the night at the Clayton County Jail after being arrested Wednesday for allegedly exposing himself and urinating into a trash can in front of a fourth grade class. Coleman Eaton, 60, faces two counts of aggravated child molestation. Riverdale police said they received a call Wednesday morning. Investigators said Eaton was in the class with about 30 students. Students told police that Eaton told the class to turn around and not look, but a couple of students said they did. Jason Cambers' son is in third grade. He said the...

    ATHENS, Ohio - Researchers at Ohio University are studying a new energy source you can produce yourself. They’re studying the power of pee. It’s something everyone does, every day. Even though urine is nearly 99 percent water, there is a lot of hydrogen in the remaining one percent from an organic compound called urea. To break it down, if you could collect the urine from all 24,000 students at Ohio University, you could power 60 buildings every day. Researchers say there is still a lot of work to be done, but there are some applications of this new technology that...

    Greg Mortenson's best-selling memoir, Three Cups of Tea, is being 'reviewed' by his publisher following claims part of it was fabricated. The book, which follows Mortenson's mission to build schools across Central Asia, is filled with inaccuracies, US news programme 60 Minutes said. The report disputed his claims that he stumbled upon a mountain village during a failed attempt to climb K2. Mortenson has denied the allegations, saying he stands by the book. The book's publisher, Viking, has said it will investigate the claims made by the programme. "Greg Mortenson's work as a humanitarian in Afghanistan and Pakistan has provided...
