whoevers gotta clean that, best of luck
You know they just use the same slop mop that they use on the floor.
My money is on pressure washing. Get some of that nastiness blasted up into the air so it can land on things that you can then touch with your hands.
Almost certain it's gloves + paper towels + industrial disinfectant. After cleaning up enough shit and god knows what else, this isn't a big deal.
Right I used to clean the toilets at the end of every day. My hand has touched 0 pee or shit.
Imagine how nasty that shit gets
True. I mean, how often does that need to be cleaned? It probably should be an opaque material and not plexiglass.
If only there was some opaque white material that was easy to mass produce that they could use to make toilet parts out of.
Woah there, idk if we're *that* advanced yet
At this rate I should just expect a porcelain hole to stick my dick in..
Never mind the mess on the shoes do it for the glory
I feel like horny teenagers and crackheads would try to fuck it :/
Any holes a goal, right?
Noooo. But I mean.... ;)
Attached to a dyson
Would be glorious
This is an ad-hoc approach because some guy with handmade shoes pissed on them after one too many scotches at lunch.
Literally public bathrooms get cleaned multiple times a day and a place like this seems like somewhere to not forget that. So probably gets cleaned more than it “needs” to be to keep it presentable
Oh buddy, you ever been to a Texas truck stop?
You’re stopping at the wrong ones. You need to make a bowel appt at Buc-ees. Cleanest restrooms on the road, literally, dotting up and down Texas interstates.
ever since I heard how much they pay, stuff like that started making a lot more sense
But I’ve never been to one that wasn’t absolutely packed with customers, and for people that have no idea, it’s like the size of 10 normal gas stations, and always always packed. They make $$$$$$$
Went to my first buccees last week. Oh my god that was the largest and cleanest public bathroom of all time.
I work in ship/receive three miles down from one. They DO NOT let truck drivers use their restrooms. Heard it from a dozen or so truckers. They have to stop at Love's or Pilot.
Wtf? How do they enforce that? Do they just have someone outside watching to see if semis pull up? Someone policing the bathroom to make sure no truckers walk in?
spray it with a water repellant
No... This is not for shit. Urinals. Urine. Not poo poo.... Pee pee.
If this isn’t for pooping , why is there a backrest?
You're not very adventurous is all I'm getting out of this.
You mean you’re not supposed to go boom boom in these things? This explains all the looks.
They are probably just impressed by the size
I don’t have a dick, but nothing about this bathroom seems right.
I do, and it doesn't
Somebody just had some leftover bathtubs and a tight budget.
This is actually an art installation called *Toilete du Sacrumonde* which means "Toilet of Sacrimony" (Sacrimony being a portmanteau of "sacrifice" and "harmony") by Pierre Dupont. It's located in Belgium as part of a series of art projects that I totally just made up.
I love Pierre's work. I can't wait to see what other exhibitions of his you make up.
1- why make them reach the ground to begin with....
2- how am I supposed to wave to my audience through the massive window with both my hands occupied?
3- is that a piss-sprayed QR code made of tile down there? Or something to point at in case you’re caught peeking at the fellow next door?
> is that a piss-sprayed QR code made of tile down there? Or something to point at in case you’re caught peeking next door?
There is 100% a secret room behind that. The pattern is probably a clue to solve the puzzle room.
Secret room? [You mean like this?](https://www.vice.com/en/article/vdybgj/deep-inside-the-chain-pub-piss-dungeon)
I regret clicking. May i please have my innocence back? 🥺
“Thirsty for more piss?” - the bottom of that article
Thank you for your reply to that dude's comment. It served to warn me of whatever dark horrors lurk in that link. I will not click; your sacrifice is not in vain.
I clicked, so here’s a summary. Dude removed the drainage plumbing of a urinal and hides in a back room. He then puts his face up to the bottom hole of the urinal to get pissed on. Someone saw an eye in the hole of the urinal, so the manager and pisser go investigate and find the piss dungeon and a dude drenched in piss.
I regret reading even the summary. Wtf is wrong with some people
Now I know. Regret tastes yellow. Thanks mate.
I’m mad at you and madder at myself for reading that to the end.
That's... great. Just what I wanted to read!
While I don’t dispute the secret room, that is not a QR code.
bet there’s something cool back there, but no way in hell am I touching the piss sprayed wall, you do it!
How did you make this image worse with every sentence
t’s about to get even worse when you realize that number 3 must have gotten distracted by that QR code and got his dick caught in his zipper because there’s blood on the floor
1- so they have a use for the splash guards, of course.
2- easy, drop your pants all the way, so they're fully protected by the splash guard. Now you have 1 free hand for waving :)
3- definitely the latter.
Admittedly, I don’t have a dick so I don’t see many urinals...but I just assumed they were mostly elevated. Floor level ones look like they are just asking for a mess.
Right? All I can think is that they went from being able to mop it up to having to bend way over and get it by hand.
Even I don’t need one that low. I agree, completely ridiculous
Username checks out
Dont even ask about the horror of the pig trough style urinals.
I always assumed the inventor of those had some sort of fetish and then he was like “trust me i’m an engineer” and people allowed it, because how else do you do something so weird
It goes elevated urinals, floor level urinals, troughs
At least the troughs are sometimes elevated. I'd rather see a dick than get piss all over my legs and shoes
I'd say it's uncommon for restrooms to have floor level urinals, most often they are wall-mounted, elevated ones, like you assumed. I live in the US though, not sure if it's more common elsewhere.
4 someone has to clean glass
> 1- why make them reach the ground to begin with
First of all, and most importantly, they accommodate everyone, regardless of height... in bathrooms where only one or two of the half-size urinals is lower than the rest, this can be a significant issue. But also... you realize that splashback happens at half-size urinals too, right? Like, it’s usually not enough spray to feel on your hands or see on your pants, but there’s not enough spray to see on your shoes from the full length ones, either. But it still happens. You’ve still got piss on you.
Even those urinals that people circulate pics of every now and then that have the little “fly” inside to aim at, theoretically reducing the amount of splashback by encouraging a better angle, don’t completely prevent it.
Also since the urinals are facing the windows, there’s nowhere else to put plumbing but on the floors.
Gotta learn to stand back and power arc it
When you back up as far as you can while power arcing just to see how far you can go, then you run back up before the stream weakens and you pee on the floor.
That's cool and all, but WHY TF ARE THERE WINDOWS INFRONT OF THE URINALS??!!?!
Stayed at a hotel in LA where the bathroom in the lobby at the top had a urinal where you peed on the outside window. 80 something stories up just peeing while looking out at LA.
That sounds magical
The whiz of a lifetime
You urinated directly on a glass window??
I'm not sure OP was at a urinal.
I'm imagining him pissing on someone's penthouse window from one of those window washing rigs.
Yeah I prefer to have them on the side like this: https://imgur.com/a/inmQOv5
I mean, highly unlikely anyone sees your willy when you have the highest window in view.
And it’s barely visible anyway
Omg yeah I was gonna comment on that, just imagine you see some dude holding up a sign saying "NICE COCK BRO'
I'd be pretty flattered and just nod and smile.
Maybe some finger guns.
Am I missing something? The urinal completely blocks the persons body who is using it, I don’t see the issue.
Looks like a high-rise maybe
Don’t get too high of a rise.. the neighbors might see it
One way mirror or tinted or someone wanted to see some pissing dicks?
definitely to see some pissing dicks
Skyfall Lounge at the top of the Mandalay bay has the best urinal view in the United States.
Looks like a roof so not like people will be standing outside the window. Def should’ve been a half wall/window tho. Everything about this design is pretty strange tho lol except the splash guards. Could’ve just done half walls with normal urinals and some partitions and achieved the same thing for probably much less money lol.
They went all the way to think about how to protect your shoes while peeing but couldn’t install a basic wall partition between the urinals?!
“Nice dick, bro.”
“Please stop pissing on my shoes”
“Nice stream bro”
Don't cross my stream bro.
"Nice splashback bro"
"tastes good bro"
It’s a sword fight bro.
*proceeds to clench and unleash high pressure jet to their face*
“Look dad, no hands!”
And son,...that is how you make snow yellow....so STOP EATING IT
I told this story as my best man speech for my one brother’s wedding.
One time when we were kids — I was maybe 5, bros were 10 and 12 — we were outside in our back yard, and we got in an argument about something you could do in Star Fox 64. I knew I was right, but my brothers didn’t believe me. So my eldest (the one getting married that day) decided to antagonize me, bent down with his face an inch away from me, and said “yeah? Well I won’t believe you unless you pee. your. pants.”
Now, I knew I was right. *Knew* I was right. And right then is when I fully developed my vindictive “I won’t take no bullshit” streak. I pulled forward my waistband so my brothers could watch me piss directly into my own pants.
They were speechless.
I went inside to change and my dad helped me clean up and was just like “these things happen” but I knew the truth. On that day,
I stood up for myself.
How to assert dominance
"Need a hand?"
*Nice watch bro*
“Lol smol pp, get big noob”
I was at a rob zombie concert in the fillmore denver. I got the pee shame ( “ i dont hear any peeee!”) so i waited for the one on the end. Zipped down all was good until i see a head sharply turn and look. We make eye contact then he goes down and just strait looks at my junk. Needless to say im a stall pee-er now.
“Tight dick, playa”
wanna touch ends?
Requesting permission to dock, sir.
Permission granted, lieutenant.
You're ignoring the giant windows behind the urinals, something tells me privacy is not a priority.
might be treated windows that you can't look *into*.
That only works until it gets dark FWIW.
It doesn't look to be on the ground floor, so only angels & window cleaners will be watching your wiener.
Yeah. I kind of like the idea of enjoying the scenery while taking a leak
That was the first thing I noticed. What back asswards planet are these urinals on
Britain. I think I've peed here. Pretty sure it's a restaurant in London though I can't quite recall which one. Jasper Conran's joint had a similar screen but it was one long trough. I think maybe it's the oxo tower.
Anyway. No dividers is super common. For some reason, America prefers a divider at a urinal but giant gaps in the cubicles around the shitters. Britain is the other way around. Having a poo is very private whereas having a pee is surrounded by a great deal of etiquette while being basically public.
It wasn’t always that way in North America.
As a kid I had to pee with my shoulders touching strangers at these: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EbS9sQuU8AAYr-M.png
These still exist though, I used one at an Amtrak station recently
Ha, I used to drink in bar where people regularly peed in the sinks because they looked almost identical to the urinals but higher up and with taps. That picture looks like a pee sink.
Those are the urinal troughs at Tiger Stadium in Detroit.
I’m often glad I’m not a man. I could not perform in this situation
Oh if you think that's bad you haven't seen a metal piss trough that's usually in your average pub or football stadium in London. No dividers and it will splash all over the damn place. If the pathetic water flush does activate it kind of pools all of the piss at one end. The smell is something else on one of those old things.
I've seen some filled with ice to minimize splashback, and to avoid splashing someone else's piss at you. The melt probably helps move thing towards the drain. Also, prevents cigarette butts from clogging the drain.
I think it helps with the smell too.
You mean to tell me that wasn't ice for my drink?
Oh, we have those in stadiums in the US. When I was a teenager, I wen to a[n American] football game with my friend's family. After the game, I *really* had to piss. Since I didn't beat the post-game rush, the bathroom was just rows and columns of dudes waiting to piss shoulder-to-shoulder. When it was finally my turn, even though I had to go so bad, I got stage fright and couldn't piss at all. Had to wait till we got to the restaurant.
I guess it's what you get used to. American cubicles terrified me, you can see people's faces while you're trying to have a poo. I've had actual conversations through those gaps, with colleagues, in a work setting, while I had my trousers around my ankles. Talk about just absorbing it back into you, no way was I going to red faced squeeze it out while someone is making actual eye contact.
By contrast, in this very public urinal situation, if someone made eye contact with another urinator it would result in either a sexual encounter or a fight and absolutely nothing in between.
I fucking hate our stalls cause of those gaps. When I visited Sweden it was absolute heaven taking a dump in their stalls.
I always think of American Dad - "NOT MY PRIVACY STRIPS!"
> NOT MY PRIVACY STRIPS!
Well.. if that just ain't the most precious intro ever.

>but giant gaps in the cubicles around the shitters.
What really gets me about this is that I've never, *ever* seen proper stalls in the US. Ever. I understand cultural differences would mean that our shitty gapped stalls would be more common. But why is it that *not a single fucking person*, who ever decided to build a McDonalds or hotel or gas station or whatever else has a public restroom...why a *single* one never thought outside the box to say "Hey, it is kinda weird how stalls dont' have any privacy. Since I'm building a whole building, I'm sure that adding a few extra inches to these doors won't cost too much more, and people will really appreciate it!" Not one. Not a *single* fucking person.
People will say that it's a way to curb down on, like, homeless people shooting up or whatever weird paranoid conspiracies they have, but "homeless people shooting up" would also be a thing in Europe, and isn't a thing *universal* across the US, nevermind in *work places* that still all have these stalls.
It just boggles my mind. We got rid of communal piss troughs decades ago but we still have to make eye contact with strangers through the slit in the door.
I work at a college where the men’s room on the first floor gives an unobstructed view to a bench outside the men’s room when the door is opened. Yep you can see straight into the urinals when the door is opened, when sitting the bench. Some idiot architect did not understand sight lines.
These are the urinals in the Shard in London. It's the tallest building in the UK, the idea is to have as much window view onto the streets below as possible. It's still super trashy though.
It's to make rich twats feel like they're pissing on the plebs below. The fact that they face one of the poorest districts in London is just icing on the shithead cake.
Found Larry David
You’ve never pissed in an ice filled troth and it shows.
Sir that was my cooler
Yours had ice in them?
For maximum splash dispersement.
Yes, saw this at a bar once and had to ask wtf the ice was about. Partially for splash dispersement, but primarily to rinse the piss down the drain as the ice melts in order to reduce the smell of piss just sitting there in the trough as it trickles toward the drain.
Or even frosted glass for the windows.
> wall partition between the urinals
You really think that is needed?
Also in Canada the urinals just don't go all the way to the floor. They end at like knee height. Why not just do that
Urinals come in all different shapes in the US. It just depends on the urinal company.
It's not the shape of the urinal that matters it's how you use it.
I don’t think that’s so much a Canada thing as it is a urinal manufacturing thing, I’ve definitely seen several that go to the floor
That’s like an, after 1995 thing. The elementary schools I attended in Vancouver had full length urinals.
How else do you pull off a shorsey piss?
This is how a real man rocks a piss, give your balls a tug.
Um, we just have urinals up high so you're not peeing into a trough on the ground.
So we just get penis splash back, which is fine cause that's where it came from
Achievement get: Return to Sender
Larry David intensifies.
No shitting at Latte Larry's
(urinals so poorly designed and nasty they required a mod)
That’s why I go in barefoot
Why are there windows
it looks like the windows look out towards the water. so chances are no one could see in. maybe the windows are tinted/reflective so you can't see in.
Except those randy sailors
To enjoy the view while peeing of course! This seems to become a trend for expensive restaurants & hotels. As long as you are far enough from strangers to not make eye contact it seems to be fine :p
Edit: This is one I took in melbourne a few years back https://imgur.com/a/inmQOv5
Adapting for an already flawed design.
Push on your taint
This is the answer. A little grundle bump will clear the pipes
This is the correct answer. I can confirm that this works.
This trick is so on point. I read about it here on Reddit and as I’ve hit my early 30s it legit works.
Take your pants off to pee
Hold your dick farther away from your pants
Difficult with 1 inch dick
Ok big boy 🙄
Pee sitting down .
When I get up more pee comes out it’s weird lol
Get a replacement dick if under warranty
Dab the tip of your penis with TP. It will absorb the little bit that didn't make it out even after shaking.
But they don’t have tp at the urinals.
So...after I pee, I run to the stall with my pants down in order to get the TP?
Is this the bathroom at Latte Larry’s?
Larry already figured this out!
Its definitely not the one at Mocha Joes
See... In Australia, urinals are just below crotch level and are made of porcelain. That works well to protect your shoes, the floor, everything.
Images you can smell
Still not great for splashback. Urinals are just gross in general.
Here's an idea; Just point your prick against the urinal wall at a 145-degree angle and let loose
So, they went to all this trouble and didn’t add dividers? Interesting priorities.
As a non-penis-owner, I’m horrified knowing that penis-owners everywhere are walking around with piss splashed on their shoes.
As a penis owner, don't be so horrified. The majority have a higher trough so have no need for a splash screen
That looks fun to clean
Nothing like walking into the bathroom wearing flip flops and seeing floor length urinals.
NGL, If I'm at home, I just sit. Got tired of the aim game,
Today I learned that men walk around with piss splash on their shoes.
Urinals don't normally go down to the ground. What a stupid way to solve a problem that shoulnd't exist.
No... Most of us know how to take a piss in a fucking urinal. If you cant figure it out then you probably deserve to have piss all over your shoes, its one of the most basic fucking things on earth. Just aim your fucking dick properly, it ain't that difficult.
Protect the floor not your shoes.
