Hey Sam, If You Pee on This Wall, It Pees Back At You
written by Sam Greenspan

The Internet really makes it easier to share worldwide innovations in the toilet arts.

Hey Sam,

I'm writing to you from Hamburg, Germany. We are in the news right now for new walls that can't be urinated on. They were painted with a special paint that repels urine, when you pee on them they pee back on you.

I thought you'd be interested.
"I thought you'd be interested." I want to be offended -- but I actually AM interested.

Here's a short video about the walls...



Makes sense, I guess.

If there's one thing Germans love, it's efficient cleanliness.

If there are two things Germans love, they're efficient cleanliness and didactic punishments.

If there are three things Germans love, they're efficient cleanliness, didactic punishments and getting peed on.

(Hey, just kidding Germany! We're all better off if the Germans are channeling their energy toward micturating walls than pretty much any alternative.)
