Yesterday I mentioned to Jenny that my dream home would have a man cave (my current home has one), a dedicated brewing room (nope, garage serves double duty), and a bathroom with one of those floor console urinals. Now young Jenny didn't balk at the man cave nor the dedicated brewing room but when I mentioned the floor console urinal she looked at me like I had been smoking crack. WTF? Is a urinal in the home a stupid idea? I think it is genious (CPS).

I know someone who installed a urinal in some guy's garage. That is awesome.

How come you want the floor one? Bad for your shoes.

If there is at least one house in America fitted with a bidet, then a floor to wall urinal should never be out of the question.

Floor console urinals are classy. You can sit your beer on them while you water the lawn.

I know a guy that worked the acquisition and installation of a urinal before he got married. It has been years and he still doesn't have it.

I still think it is a stroke of genius. I will certainly be installing one in my retirement home.

I went to an "open house" for sale a few years back, and they had a urinal in the bathroom.

It seems like a good idea, but I think there's a huge downside risk that needs to be taken into account. If only men use it, then only men will be expected to clean it. I'd rather be able to shrug and look surprised at any cleanliness complaints.

You should register at American Standard, and maybe we can all chip in on the urinal as a wedding gift.

I've been thinking long and hard about this and I suppose that if I can have my art hanging on the walls, my smelly candles all over the house, and my crap in 95% of the bathroom drawers....he can have his urinal. Small price to pay for sex whenever I want it.

A couple of questions:

1. Why would you want one as opposed to just using the toilet?
2. Why does she object to your having one?
3. How do most people think a floor urinal would affect the resale of a house? Seems like it would be a negative. It would make me slightly hesitant to buy a house and, if I bought a house that had one in it, I would remove it as soon as possible.

Those came and went and weren't profitable.




Review: Book examines significant business blunders

Kimberly-Clark’s Cottonelle Fresh Rollwipes, debuted in 2001 as an alternative to dry toilet paper. Who knew that after $100 million in R&D costs and a $35 million advertising campaign featuring the tagline “wetter is better,” the product would languish for two years in test marketing and never take off as expected?

I think urinals are a bit tawdry. I like the loo.



Main Entry: 1taw£dry
Pronunciation: ‚t•-dr‡, ‚tä-
Function: adjective

cheap and gaudy in appearance or quality; also : ignoble
synonyms see gaudy
–taw£dri£ly \-dr„-l‡\ adverb
–taw£dri£ness \-dr‡-n„s\ noun

You think something that could be a SHOWPIECE for other males while bonding in your MAN CAVE drinking beer is Tawdry?

You are teh Gehy aren't you?

I find NOTHING wrong with having such a showpiece in my bathroom as long as it is KNOWN that it will be a relief area JUST for men and I would be the SCHLEP that cleaned it so there would be NO FURTHER DISCUSSION in my house.


I find this idea BRILLIANT!

A buddy of mine has a huge basement and converted it into a sports bar set up. He has six TVs one is a big screen, a full bar, keg beer the works. It is really cool you can watch every game just like a sports bar. His bathroom is set up with a floor urinal, the first time I saw it I laughed. I asked him why he put it in and he said it is easier to keep clean when us drunken ass holes show up for Sunday parties.

I think you subject yourself to the risk of litigation under a theory of premises liability for invitees.

Some meat-peeker will slip a cervical disc spinning their head around trying to size up the guy that would be next to him if it was not a solo urinal.

You are definitley going to have to post some disclaimers above the urinal, on the door to the bathroom, on the entry to the man cave, and on the front door.

You could probably get a good deal on those at a sign company. Let the old lady have some say in the disclaimer signs and she will come around.

If you have to ask these questions you are most likely in need of an intervention. I suggest eating 1 pound of red meat cooked over hot coals and served rare. After that drink at least a 12 pack of cheap beer. Finally, avoid showering for at least 24 hours then smell your armpits and scratch your privates and bum liberally. That might cure what ails you.

You might want to reach down and touch that fleshy patch where your testicles used to be.

You're the man here aren't you? Tell her if you don't get a urinal, you'll just pee in her shower.

I also don't think its normal that she craps in most of your drawers either. don't even allow DEAD flowers in your man cave.

This is a slippery slope on which you're standing.
