    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    i feel that way today.


    what do you think the custodial engineers will do next?
    - let the marked roll run until low enough that both rolls are replaced?
    - replace both rolls immediately?
    - replaced only the empty one and leave the marked one?

    new observation: one of the urinals in my floor's mens room runs for a LONG time. As in I did the deed, flushed, washed hands, dried hands, and went to exit the facility and it was still flushing.

    My guess is they will leave that roll in there and add another in the space that usually gets replaced frequently.


    I used to have this in my old office. Would flush for like 10 minutes long.

    Excellent news! Our office is a few buildings away from the main office, so we're sparsely populated to begin with. About half the folks here (those not involved with a certain initiative) have been moved back to the main office (making more room for large scale meetings). AND the other company on this floor has vacated. The end result is that there are only 9 people remaining on this floor. 7 of them are female (research, especially in finance, is considered to be a feminine pursuit, with like minded males encouraged to pursue business type endeavours). So basically me and this other guy have the bathroom to ourselves. Two urinals and two toilets. We're thinking of labeling them as our own. If I do label my stall, it will be as "Claghorn" rather than my given name.

    tl;dr: I basically have my own toilet now.

    That's awesome.

    Our offices used to have a huge 6 stall bathroom for just this office of about 50 people. It was great.

    Then they moved us to a different floor where there are two stalls for our office, plus several other offices, probably 150 people in total. There is seriously a line for the shitter a "busy" times--basically, you better not have to shit between 9:30 and 10:30 or 5 and 6, or you are gonna be waiting out in the hall where everyone can see you standing in line to take a dump.

    I just know that this topic has been discussed, but I want to discuss it again.

    I go to the gym regularly on the weekdays - My schedule changes, but at least 3 days of the week and the randomly on the weekend depending on weather (golf).

    I have had this since high school, before physical activity, I need to take a dump - Gym, golf, yard work, etc... I gotta do it. So, gym that I use is small, its at the country club to which I belong, so not a mega gym. I am on a very similar workout to a golfing partner of mine. While I am taking care of my business in stall 2, he always comes into stall 1 and takes a sitting piss - There are 4 proper pissers in addition to 2 other stalls (located 20 feet from stall 1 and 2) as the restroom facility is shared between the pool and the gym.

    Why do men sit to piss?

    It bothers me more because I often finish, after he has finished his piss, wash up and begin changing into my gym clothes - he just goes about changing as if pissing while seated is no problem.

    I am in the wrong here?

    Did I read this that he changes in the stall or that you are expecting a deep conversation about pissing while sitting?

    I'm not a fan when Clag Jr brushes any part of a toilet. Makes me shudder.
