When urine the shower

The resident green-advice columnist over at Grist has a very funny post today about whether or not urinating in the shower conserves more water than if it’s done in a toilet and flushed away. Something tells me No Impact Man (aka No Toilet Paper Man) has already bookmarked it. I especially like the part where the writer says he needs to clarify whether the shower peeing is a stand-alone activity, or whether it’s part of a multi-tasking, lathering-plus-peeing procedure.

    You need to make it a multi-task activity! 🙂 It’s tough though…you can always spot someone peeing in a pool because they seem to get a full body rigourmortis (spelling) just as they stop peeing…most people can’t even talk while they accomplish the public-pool-pee, followed up by a quick dash to the opposite end of the pool.

    So…continuing to lather your hair with shampoo should prove to be a daunting task!

    Cheers, 🙂

    Oh dear, don’t I know it. I used to be a lifeguard — the kiddie pool was the WORST for that. They’d even do number two in that thing. And sometimes barf. I have yet to swim in a public pool since.

    The image of some bloke doing multitasking in the shower brought tears to my eyes. Green or no green, I have 3 brothers and it’s brought back memories of all childhood where the toilet was an outhouse and so the boys did their no. 1s in the shower. The residue of the smell somehow keeps lingering to the present. I vote against, shower peeing for those reasons.

    So what exactly does no impact man use in replace of toilet paper, maybe the 3 sea shells from the futuristic “Demolition Man” solution? The only thing I can think of is leaves, any ideas?

    I believe no toilet paper implies either using cloth rags that you then put in the washing machine and reuse, or his hand.

    I’m thinking he might use a high pressure hose! 🙂

    Just jokes…there are for sure ways around it as you mention Vanessa, I’m just not sure if I’d be willing to do either…
