...vigorously sneezing while using a urinal.

There, you see? Sitting down is just a flat-out superior method.

You use urinals sitting down?

(Actually, I do always sit down when using a toilet.)

Hahaha. This is the very reason for the non-adjacent-urinal rule.

Nah. A urinal is nothing. It's like right there. A toilet, on the other hand, requires aim and a steady hand. It's 2 feet away! A sneeze there and it's all over.

Not that I would know, of course. This is all theoretical. Trigonometry and such.

Stop looking at me! *runs and hides*

To quote George Carlin:
"Don't sneeze, you might blow your asshole out."

Random urinal trivia for the day: obviously I don't know firsthand, but I hear that they don't tend to have urinals in Qatar -- public nudity and all that. But restrooms usually DO have these little stations where men can perform wudu, or the ritual ablutions before prayer. I hear they look very similar to urinals, and there have been problems with Westerners accidentally peeing into them. Oops.

The worst, of course, is when the sneeze causes one to lean forward involuntarily, at which time the apparatus tucks itself neatly back inside trousers and underwear, and continues to emit urine, now with sneeze-enhanced greater force.

If this happens, it will happen on the first bathroom visit of a work day, ten minutes before a meeting with a superior or a customer.
