Urine-Fueled Distress Signals

Imagine that you're stuck in a remote location and you need to radio for help. But your radio has no power! Never fear. As long as you have some of these paper triangles created by researchers at the Bristol BioEnergy Centre — and you have to go to the bathroom — you'll have battery power. Just pee on the paper triangles and they produce enough power to send a radio signal.

And what if you don't have to go? In that case, urine from just about any animal will do.

Cow Urine Floor Cleaner

The Holy Cow Foundation in India has succeeded in turning cow urine into a liquid cleanser that will soon be cleaning office floors throughout India. It's calling this new product Gaunyle. It says that the cow-urine product is safer than synthetic cleaners, it's "full of natural goodness," and its use will provide income for people who raise cows. So overall, its use is a "win-win" for everyone. [economic times]

Urine Stain Font

Aravindan Thirunavukarasu wrote letters on a wall by peeing on the wall. Then he developed a font based on his pee letters. And he invites everyone to download his pee font from his website, The Art of Peeing. [via CityLab]

Pee Pocket

The Pee Pocket is yet another device that allows women to pee standing up. (I'm pretty sure I've posted about several other such devices.) It was designed by a heart surgeon. But what caught my eye were the possible plans to come out with a camouflage version of it marketed to hunters. Says the inventor in an interview with Local News 8 of Idaho Falls: "Hunters have all this garb and warm gear on, and they can't get it off. When they go to the bathroom, it's not just unzip. Sometimes it's cold, and it doesn't reach, so they put this inside the clothes to give them the extra length they need to pee without taking off all the garb."

I guess it's important that the hunters stay fully camouflaged while relieving themselves.

As you might suspect, these pills eventually met with Federal displeasure.

Peeing While Standing


Brigham Young University's Splash Lab produced this slow-mo simulation of what happens when a man pees into a toilet bowl while standing up. They write:

The amount of splash is considerable and should make one reconsider standing up to urinate. The repeated impact of the droplets opens up a large and interesting cavity with multiple ridges. Each droplet forms a small cavity wherein the next droplet can pass through and form a cavity an additional cavity creating a chain of small cavity structures. Splash is formed both from the initial impact as well as the collapse of this large cavity. The process repeats itself over and over creating a real mess.

Justin Bieber’s Saliva

The latest news of Justin Bieber is that while staying in Toronto, he leaned off his hotel balcony and spat on fans gathered below. This isn't his first spitting incident. He's recently been reported spitting at a neighbor, a DJ, and a woman at a gym.

Fans don't seem to mind his spitting. One posted on twitter: "IF JUSTIN BIEBER SPIT ON ME ID SAVE IT AND NEVER COMPLAIN." [cbc.ca, zimbio]

This brings to mind the Irish singer Dickie Rock from the 1960s who was known for spitting on his fans, and his fans loving it (begging him to do it). I'll just repost part of Dr. Mark Griffiths' observations on spitting fetishes which I previously posted with regard to Dickie Rock:

much of the online literature on spitting fetishes (as opposed to saliva fetishes) appears to be rooted in BDSM and is usually referred to as 'spitting domination'. The dominant partner may spit into their submissive partner's face and/or mouth. The submissive partner may also be forced to swallow the liquid spit if their mouth is spat into. Many of the online articles about spitting fetishes see parallels between the act of spitting and the act of ejaculation – particularly in relation to 'facials' (i.e., the act of men ejaculating onto someone's face) and the practice of bukkake (i.e., the act of many men simultaneously ejaculating onto someone's face and/or body)...

The Freedom Flask

I'm not sure if the point of this is to hide your booze, or to make your friends think you're drinking pee.
