whoevers gotta clean that, best of luck


yblame

You know they just use the same slop mop that they use on the floor.


HueyCrashTestPilot

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.


Pilose

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.


blzraven27

Right I used to clean the toilets at the end of every day. My hand has touched 0 pee or shit.


neph36

Imagine how nasty that shit gets


[deleted]

True. I mean, how often does that need to be cleaned? It probably should be an opaque material and not plexiglass.


stctippr

If only there was some opaque white material that was easy to mass produce that they could use to make toilet parts out of.


slothandthehound

Woah there, idk if we're *that* advanced yet


EmilioMolesteves

At this rate I should just expect a porcelain hole to stick my dick in..


KaleGreenSmoothie

Kinky


Liquor_N_Whorez

Never mind the mess on the shoes do it for the glory


_ZedF

I feel like horny teenagers and crackheads would try to fuck it :/


Oomeegoolies

Any holes a goal, right?


_ZedF

Noooo. But I mean.... ;)


JustChill8435

cooterdick

Would be glorious


cosgyp

This is an ad-hoc approach because some guy with handmade shoes pissed on them after one too many scotches at lunch.


FROCKHARD

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


Waste-of-Bagels

Oh buddy, you ever been to a Texas truck stop?


kmg18dfw

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.


voidsrus

ever since I heard how much they pay, stuff like that started making a lot more sense


kmg18dfw

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 $$$$$$$


Eagles365or366

BUCCEEEEESSSS!


Joe_Rogan-Science

Went to my first buccees last week. Oh my god that was the largest and cleanest public bathroom of all time.


Waste-of-Bagels

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.


Eagles365or366

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?


BarelyContainedChaos

spray it with a water repellant


slomar

_ZedF

ReadReadReedRed

No... This is not for shit. Urinals. Urine. Not poo poo.... Pee pee.


Lost_subaru

If this isn’t for pooping , why is there a backrest?


stosal

You're not very adventurous is all I'm getting out of this.


tidycrook

You mean you’re not supposed to go boom boom in these things? This explains all the looks.


montroller

They are probably just impressed by the size


marasydnyjade

I don’t have a dick, but nothing about this bathroom seems right.


cbftw

I do, and it doesn't


CatPoopWeiner424

Somebody just had some leftover bathtubs and a tight budget.


Knever

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.


SittingInAnAirport

I love Pierre's work. I can't wait to see what other exhibitions of his you make up.


HughGedic

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?


montroller

> 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.


McWatt

Secret room? [You mean like this?](https://www.vice.com/en/article/vdybgj/deep-inside-the-chain-pub-piss-dungeon)


alleecmo

I regret clicking. May i please have my innocence back? 🥺


Hungryhungry-hipp0

“Thirsty for more piss?” - the bottom of that article


ratz44

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.


Skrubious

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.


TheeSlothKing

I regret reading even the summary. Wtf is wrong with some people


cactus-of-the-north

Now I know. Regret tastes yellow. Thanks mate.


kipscore

I’m mad at you and madder at myself for reading that to the end.


-Nelots

That's... great. Just what I wanted to read!


InvestigatorN0

While I don’t dispute the secret room, that is not a QR code.


LilShaggey

bet there’s something cool back there, but no way in hell am I touching the piss sprayed wall, you do it!


Greenthund3r

How did you make this image worse with every sentence


DIY-lobotomy

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


SansCitizen

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.


ThottyThalamus

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.


[deleted]

[удалено]


no_talent_ass_clown

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.


HughGedic

Even I don’t need one that low. I agree, completely ridiculous


ThisIsASetup

Username checks out


Boomshockalocka007

Dont even ask about the horror of the pig trough style urinals.


DontBeABadPerson

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


Rags2Bags

It goes elevated urinals, floor level urinals, troughs


someguywhocanfly

At least the troughs are sometimes elevated. I'd rather see a dick than get piss all over my legs and shoes


silo-simon

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.


Antishill_Artillery

4 someone has to clean glass


TheHarridan

> 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.


akc250

Also since the urinals are facing the windows, there’s nowhere else to put plumbing but on the floors.


Rags2Bags

Gotta learn to stand back and power arc it


3fifteen

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.


FlatPotato37

That's cool and all, but WHY TF ARE THERE WINDOWS INFRONT OF THE URINALS??!!?!


dwharden22

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.


AFrostNova

That sounds magical


[deleted]

The whiz of a lifetime


YuropLMAO

You urinated directly on a glass window??


MyFacade

I'm not sure OP was at a urinal.


YuropLMAO

I'm imagining him pissing on someone's penthouse window from one of those window washing rigs.


extremely-neutral

Yeah I prefer to have them on the side like this: https://imgur.com/a/inmQOv5


dafizzif

I mean, highly unlikely anyone sees your willy when you have the highest window in view.


BossNegative1060

And it’s barely visible anyway


alexslife

Boom roasted!!!


ian_aved14

Omg yeah I was gonna comment on that, just imagine you see some dude holding up a sign saying "NICE COCK BRO'


RixirF

I'd be pretty flattered and just nod and smile. Maybe some finger guns.


Chickensandcoke

Am I missing something? The urinal completely blocks the persons body who is using it, I don’t see the issue.


BareLeggedCook

Looks like a high-rise maybe


OpenRoadPioneer

Don’t get too high of a rise.. the neighbors might see it


Deep_Grady

One way mirror or tinted or someone wanted to see some pissing dicks?


[deleted]

definitely to see some pissing dicks


Scott-from-Canada

Skyfall Lounge at the top of the Mandalay bay has the best urinal view in the United States.


_Kramerica_

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.


shubhsomani

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?!


tidycrook

“Nice dick, bro.”


What-a-Crock

LordApocalyptica

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.

posananer

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.

No-One-2177

Permission granted, lieutenant.


RPDRNick

You're ignoring the giant windows behind the urinals, something tells me privacy is not a priority.


TheDesktopNinja

might be treated windows that you can't look *into*.


TheRealDarkArc

That only works until it gets dark FWIW.


neiljt

It doesn't look to be on the ground floor, so only angels & window cleaners will be watching your wiener.


hates_all_bots

Yeah. I kind of like the idea of enjoying the scenery while taking a leak


Turanka

That was the first thing I noticed. What back asswards planet are these urinals on


speckyradge

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. Edit: typo.


peeinian

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


inanimatus_conjurus

These still exist though, I used one at an Amtrak station recently


speckyradge

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.


peeinian

Those are the urinal troughs at Tiger Stadium in Detroit.


ohwrite

I’m often glad I’m not a man. I could not perform in this situation


EddieHeadshot

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.


Dingleberry_Larry

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.


IAmAGenusAMA

I think it helps with the smell too.


SaintsPelicans1

You mean to tell me that wasn't ice for my drink?


The_sad_zebra

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.


speckyradge

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.


KidsInTheSandbox

I fucking hate our stalls cause of those gaps. When I visited Sweden it was absolute heaven taking a dump in their stalls.


speckyradge

I always think of American Dad - "NOT MY PRIVACY STRIPS!"


nrfx

> NOT MY PRIVACY STRIPS! Well.. if that just ain't the most precious intro ever. [Not my privacy strips!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtrXcAYBqkw)


sje46

>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.


ohwrite

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.


Cerpin-Taxt

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.


omfgregg

Found Larry David


PrestigeWrldWider

You’ve never pissed in an ice filled troth and it shows.


Buck_Johnson_MD

Trough :)


PrestigeWrldWider

Sure, that.


Rags2Bags

Sir that was my cooler


No_Lawfulness_6647

Yours had ice in them?


PrestigeWrldWider

For maximum splash dispersement.


RandyHoward

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.


Ninjy42

Or even frosted glass for the windows.


Fullbullish

> wall partition between the urinals You really think that is needed?


thatbtchshay

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


king_grushnug

Urinals come in all different shapes in the US. It just depends on the urinal company.


BFfF3

It's not the shape of the urinal that matters it's how you use it.


Shankman519

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


lubeskystalker

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?


CannibalGotenks

This is how a real man rocks a piss, give your balls a tug.


WhinniePooed

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


CrazeMase

Achievement get: Return to Sender


Your_Product_Here

Larry David intensifies.


The_Steining

No shitting at Latte Larry's


DolphinsBreath

(urinals so poorly designed and nasty they required a mod)


Prudent-Apartment567

That’s why I go in barefoot


kalesmash13

Why are there windows


TribeCheck

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.


Phreakhead

Except those randy sailors


extremely-neutral

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

Push on your taint


ksquad80

This is the answer. A little grundle bump will clear the pipes


Reginald_Sinclair

This is the correct answer. I can confirm that this works.


Oldrustyfarts

This trick is so on point. I read about it here on Reddit and as I’ve hit my early 30s it legit works.


cloudofevil

Take your pants off to pee


Lost_subaru

Hold your dick farther away from your pants


Srb3ard

Ok big boy 🙄


FrostyAutumnMoss

Pee sitting down .


oyequebola

When I get up more pee comes out it’s weird lol


JoshEatsBananas

Get a replacement dick if under warranty


notarealaccount_yo

Dab the tip of your penis with TP. It will absorb the little bit that didn't make it out even after shaking.


Oldrustyfarts

But they don’t have tp at the urinals.


Neckbeard_McPork

So...after I pee, I run to the stall with my pants down in order to get the TP?


Beans_ON_Toasttt

Is this the bathroom at Latte Larry’s?


mbc1010

Larry already figured this out!


TranQLizer

Its definitely not the one at Mocha Joes


ReadReadReedRed

See... In Australia, urinals are just below crotch level and are made of porcelain. That works well to protect your shoes, the floor, everything.

mallix1

Images you can smell


Linubidix

Still not great for splashback. Urinals are just gross in general.


blgiant

Here's an idea; Just point your prick against the urinal wall at a 145-degree angle and let loose


Rocketman_1981

So, they went to all this trouble and didn’t add dividers? Interesting priorities.


keersten25

As a non-penis-owner, I’m horrified knowing that penis-owners everywhere are walking around with piss splashed on their shoes.


Evostance

As a penis owner, don't be so horrified. The majority have a higher trough so have no need for a splash screen


cactuspizza

That looks fun to clean


ScoopThaPoot

Nothing like walking into the bathroom wearing flip flops and seeing floor length urinals.


kee-mosabe

NGL, If I'm at home, I just sit. Got tired of the aim game,


Rosea_Draco

Today I learned that men walk around with piss splash on their shoes.


skyskyskyskyskyskysk

Urinals don't normally go down to the ground. What a stupid way to solve a problem that shoulnd't exist.


jellatubbies

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.


Nonpartialbigot

Protect the floor not your shoes.
