I made this poll because I am quite confused on how to use a urinal (rofl). And no matter which way I do it, I still get sprinkles from the rebound of the urine.

I always go for the water, otherwise you get nasty-other-guy-piss on your hands and giggle stick™.

A lot of people tend to get way too close to it. If you are making _any_ contact with the urinal [That includes your clothes], then you're way too close.

Just stand back a bit. ;)

I try and melt the bubble gum at the bottom, or wash down the chewing tobacco left and run it all down the drain holes, after which I'll devote what's left to dissolving any deodorizer which is at the base. Leave it cleaner than you found it in the interest of both mine and urine. Oh, and for the love of Pete, it's called F L U S H. :p

I agree with mad jew...I generally aim for the urinal cake if there is one. If there isn't, it's usually the drain...you have to make a game out of it somehow.

I go outside and find the nearest road gutter. I stand over it and pee in my pants. The urine runs straight down my leg right into the gutter. NO SPRINKLES AND NO MESS!! It's great on a cold day too. AH the warmth!!!

I usually stand about 3 feet back and arc it in. Of course the tricky part is carefully walking it in once the stream starts to fade so you don't get any on the floor.

*runs around sticking milk bottle tops on people* :D

I like to mix it up, y'know? Sometimes on the block, sometimes down the drain and hell sometimes, just for the fun of it, standing a few feet back to test my aim. Or not, I'd rather go in a cubicle if there is one.

There are an awful lot of people who aren't very good at that part...

Usually wall. But some urinals have those ice cube things at the bottom, and those deserve special attention.

I have a funny story about that...

there was this one urinal, which must have been scientifically designed to have the urine shoot straight back at you.

Well, it was my second day of work, and I went out and bought these brand new pants... well needless to say, at about 10:00, after the caffeine set it, I went to the bathroom. Well... i ruined the pants... and was very embarrassed the rest of the day. I kept having to cross my legs.


Oh, and one final note, why do you sometimes find ice in the urinal?

Several reasons...

1. Entertainment purposes...makes a fun game.
2. Melting ice conserves slowly "flushes" the urinal.
3. Chilling the urine can help keep odors down.
4. It's a convenient place to dump ice when you're done with it.
