    I'm installing a urinal in my house.

    I think I'll put it in the kitchen, right next to the kegerator!

    The urinal idea is sweet, but I think if I ever saw someone peeing in my sink I would not be happy.

    Does your local building code allow that?

    You know, the major problem I have with most urinals is that they're too high. I'm over 6 feet tall, cough cough with no 'reach' problems, but most urinals its like I got back up a bit to arch it so I don't get splash-back.

    The only urinal I'd ever install would be like the ones I had in grade school, you know, the ones that went all the way to the floor. Now THATS a urinal!

    The secret to proper urinal use is a matter of flow regulation and angle of attack.

    pee too hard, and you get splash, if the angle of attack is too aggressive, you hit the curvature of the bottom of it, and get splash.....if you aim too high, the urine hits at a near 90 degree angle to the curface, thus splash.

    The goal is to get the angle as narrow as possible (note that some folks need different angles than others), while keeping overall flow rates down to a rate that is comfortable, yet keeps splash down (more power means you will need mroe distance to offset it).

    This is easier said than done! It would be nice if there was some sort of device or guide you could use to measure the stream power and angle as well as the curvature of the porcelain to insure optimal urination efficiency and minimal splashback. Even better would be if it could prevent "misfiring" where the stream angle does not line up with the aim direction. God knows, after years of manual urination, I still have that issue from time to time. If someone were to engineer it, I would be the first to buy an automatic urination regulation unit. This is definitely a void in our current consumer market.

    I found the unexpected angle is often caused by an obstruction or dryness causing adhesion.

    The power is best figured out from practice....learn to stop a stream...it can be done, and without pain once you learn how to do it....once you can stop a stream, then you can learn to control the output power.

    The angle is pretty easy, try to hit ar around a 50 degree angle to start and move into a a more acute angle if needed. If you back up, reduce your angle so not to hit the curved portion of the urinal....that curved area changes the physics behind this dramatically, and is outright annoying to deal with.

    It's hard peeing when...you know..you have to lean over at a 3 point basketball guard stance to clear the bowl.

    Really...nature's design allows men to pee/not pee anywhere, at anytime we choose.

    I don't know why, but that's the way it is.

    I say my favorite urinals are the ones that go to the floor, or the large "trough" ones that are found in some old state parks like Natural Bridge Caverns.

    Sink works pretty well I'd say.

    The rings wouldn't hurt. It would be the installation of a weaver rail. I can't even begin to imagine drilling and tapping my wang.
