We can put a man on the moon, but we can't stop them peeing on the floor. Or have we not tried hard enough? It seems to me that there is insufficient thought put into urinal design to prevent and mitigate men's aim issues. Firstly, not all of the urine that ends up on the floor is the result of poor aim, some is backsplash from urinals that are not deep enough (and have the recipient surfaces at the wrong angle). Secondly, the floor around urinals should be sloping and have collection grooves so that any accidents are not left on the floor. I'm sure there are many more solutions, if we just put some good minds to work on this simple issue.

This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
