    When I gotta go, I'll take the nearest tree, hydrant, or tire....

    If there is a trough or wall, I don't care.

    Used to have them at the stadiums. Worked great. Fast in and out.

    Was mad when the renovated and they put in urinals with stalls. Now there are lines to the bathroom.

    (I'm not sure anything I just wrote was a complete sentence...)

    That's not a urinal...it's a sink, with soap discs in the bottom...

    ok, yea yea, for the sake of the poll, i'm talking public restroom, you're not bursting. haha

    obviously depending on how bad you have to go you'll go anywhere (dumb and dumber quote: just go man, just go)

    Wow, you don't even have to leave the bar or your 'dainty lunch', just go. I can't believe that was a thing, haha, wow. Look at the history those guys are missing by ignoring my thread. :)

    Call me crazy but I love urinal troughs. I'd rather pee outside whenever possible though.

    Might well have. I was at Zweibrucken Air Base, so probably there but they're all over Europe, or were.

    Just make sure you don't confuse the mortar launchers with the pee tubes!

    We had troughs in elementary school.
    Lot's of standing close, which led to pushing, which led to peeing on your hand, which led to wiping it on the other guy, which led to lots of laughing, which led to someone getting angry, which led to a piiss fight, which led to a fist fight, which led to a paddlin.
    In the end troughs led to being piissed on and piissed off at the same time.

    We didn't have nice walls around the tubes for privacy.

    And washing the hands in the river would be a good way to lose a hand or two...

    I was Army, but all the GI bars on the Strasse were pretty much set up that way. Upscale bars that didn't cater to GI's had more conventional ****ers.

    Mile High Stadium(s) — both of them — had/have them.

    Frankly I prefer the trough over SOME models of urinal that aren’t shaped right and no matter what angle you hit them from, or where you target lock on them, they’re either splattering on the floor or on your shoes. Even trying to target the urinal cake in some of those damned things doesn’t work. LOL.

    At least the trough captures whatever gets put into it.

    A few places still have those chest height to floor urinals too. Those you can get the right angle, but someone has always flushed them thirty times and overflows them onto the floor in front of them, so you’re doing the long distance pee trying to stay behind the line of flooding encroachment into the tile.

    At which point since those are usually in old State Park or Forest Service outhouses, you’d rather just walk back outside and find a tree that looks like it needs water...

    Yep, a restaurant around here has those. Always thought they were cool as a little kid, as they could accommodate someone who wasn’t tall enough to use a standard wall urinal.

    Only if I couldn't hold it any longer. Otherwise stage fright sets in. Even at individual urinals that are next to each other, if another guy walks up to use the one next to me...it just ain't coming out. If he starts talking to me, well, I'm not peeing for a week.

    Went to a bar in NYC with a relative about 25 years ago. He pointed out the plumbing that used to allow you to just pee against the bar without even getting up.

    One of the bars in Lawrence, KS (college town) had a two-way mirror over the urinals. You could stand there and do your business while scoping out the action at bar.

    That place is a Mexican restaurant now. The mirror is still there at the end of the bar, but on the bathroom side it's been paneled over.
