Both my parents have told me that their grandmothers had this ability. They had the dresses with stays that held it out wide, and when out on picnics could walk over to the edge of the parking lot, or wherever, and when they moved on they left a wet patch in the grass.

What a post! Never thought I'd see the forum come down to this but I give you my "best shot" on the subject. First of all, I respect womens rights in that they should not have to clean up after my bad aims. In the night, I always sit because it is just easier. Also, I do a lot of the house cleaning. To be honest, I use the guest bath all the time because it's easier on me to maintain. I use it to shave, shower and read the paper in the morning (if you know what I mean). It's kind of my bathroom. In the middle of the night, we both use the master bath. Check this out? Long time ago down in Cape Coral, FL., some kid came up with the idea of how to conserve water and it was published in the local paper, "if it's brown, flush it down, if it's yellow, let it mellow". To this day, I can no longer stand the soda Mellow Yellow. I cannot stand a dirty restroom or bathrooms in our house. Guess we're neat freaks.

If #1... stand... always...


I do not put the seat down... my wife USUALLY puts the seat up!!

At night, do not turn on the light... just use sound...

I clean up if there is 'spray'... (not bad aim... just not always a nice stream)

I must be old then(31) because I rarely go over 4 hours without waking up to pee. I always pee standing up. At 6'6", it's a long way to go down to sit on a toilet that's only a foot off the ground. It's painful so never do it unless I have to.

Man Card: Requirement to be accepted as a respectable member of the male community. Can and should be revoked by other respectable males for doing non-respectable-male things.



Okay, Susie, Wilma, Betty-Lou, Wendy and all the rest of you girls - your man cards have all been revoked. The only exceptions are Europeans because I'm not sure we ever actually passed out man cards in places where guys carry purses.

Geez, what's next, a discussion on manscaping?

Um, yeah...I think we already had the manscaping discussion a few years ago, wherein I learned alarming things from some of our younger, ahem, members. You'll have to search for it, I am too shy to put the link.
But it was something about a new man-region shaver is all I remember.

Yep, this European never received the "man card". I guess we don't need cards to prove we are real men...

Indeed.

But some need to see it in the rule book:

61. A man purse is still a purse.

And another rule that has tripped up many Europeans has to be:

67. No man shall wear a beret unless it’s for his military service

Perhaps we could send the question to the International Council on Manly Affairs?



EDIT: Stop the presses, I've found a possible answer at this version of the Man Laws: (http://www.ironmagazineforums.com/op...-man-laws.html)

Quote:
112. All men must stand while urinating. The only exceptions to this are if you ill and can't stand or you have no legs. Anyone that violates this will be demoted to Man Bitch and your gender will be questioned.
I'm not sure about the source on this law though.

Having had numerous back, knee, and hip problems, I've always stood cause lots of times it's just too painful to sit down, plus it takes more time. We have a full-bath and a half-bath----the half-bath is mine and I've probably haven't used the wife's full-bath toilet more than a couple of times in 20 years. When I shower, I shave and do everything in the shower. This ended arguements from 30 years ago about who got the mirror all spotty, etc.

Well I clean the bathroom and it wasn't too long after I took over the job that I decided to sit. My aim is now dead on at point blank range and no splash all over the floor and baseboards either. It's amazing how much cleaner the restroom stays. And smells better longer too!

And you're welcome to try and take my man card from me!
