Men. Put a urinal in your basement bathroom.
For real. You'll be the hero of the neighborhood.
Your friends will bow down to you. I will personally come visit your house.
Yes, of course, still install the "seated toilet" for the chicks. But for you, for the King of the castle. It's time to stand up while you pee.
There won't be a day that passes that you don't think "Damn, that was a good idea".
I did not put one in and I regret it everyday of my life. Well, the days I'm in the bathroom in the basement at least.
My friends come over, they look things over, and yeah, they like it. I mean what's not to like. It's a basement that's been finished to the exact specifications of it's owner.
But then there's this pause. This slight hesitation. And I know what's happening.
The small hamster wheels, which haven't been used since organic chemistry in college, start to churn.
The wheels are old and rusty from years of neglect. You can hear the screeching sounds of metal on metal seeping out from their ears.
Friend: "You know what you should do."
Me: Oh great, here we go. The urinal suggestion.
Friend: "You should put in a urinal!"
Whhaaaaa?! Thanks for your cunning observation and brilliant insight.
You can buy a urinal at Home Depot, just like a regular toilet. In fact it costs less.
I did wire the wall opposite my regular toilet for TV. So someday I'll have that setup, which is pretty sweet. But I still think a urinal would take the cake.
