    A urinal screen that my company made a few years ago haad Osama Bin Laden's picture on it, REALLY giving us men something to aim for. The screen was pictured in Sports Illustrated in an issue about the Olympics and our country's participation in same.

    We have had some unusual requests, including a target with a bull's eye (which we have done), a mirrored-surface (so those who want to see what they have to offer ), and.....this really did get on the market.....a screen that had this written on it: "Hey, Shorty!".

    I'd bet an R. Kelly Signature-Series Urinal Screen would do well in the clubs

    How about a urinal screen that has a little airplane propeller that the golden stream of fun could turn? I'd drink more beer if that was waiting for me at my local pub! If you make a million off of that idea I want one.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Other than the splashing problem, this is a great idea. You could design it to splash downward. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm......................$$$$

    Our screens are marketed as splash-proof. We have them designed with tiny little ridges (bubbles) in the flat surfaces between all the drain holes. These ridges help deflect the "golden stream" away from the "standee".

    The propeller could be on the outside... The stream has to hit the hole, which turns the little mini turbine, spinning the prop. That would be something!

    My questions: Why do people like to pretend they're somebody they're not and do whatever they can to hide their true identity?
    Why do chicks try to follow ridiculous and unhealthy models to try to fit in wrong social models?
    Why can't people apreciate silence and enjoy it?

    1.People try to pretend they're someone who they are not because they are unhappy with who they are and are trying to gain acceptance by acting how they think other people want them to.
    2. Chicks follow ridiculous and unhealthy models because they are unhappy with themselves and are trying to gain acceptance by acting how they think other people want them to.
    3. People can't appreciate silence because it forces them to be alone with their thoughts and can contemplate the fact they are unhappy with themselves.

    Ok, probably not the only answer, but I think it explores what all three questions have in common.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    1. Because its "there" at a convenient location near you.

    2. Because its relatively cheap.

    3. Because of their widespread location there is a cultural consensus that the chain is good. There wouldn't be so many Burger Kings if they weren't good right?

    4. Because you see hundreds of commercials and signs for any given fast food restaurant every week.

    5. Because in some locations you don't have any other options.

    6. When its fresh, mass produced fried crap can be yummy, even if unhealthy.

    Hey man, I just noticed you guys are mocking me and Mskis. You are making sport of us. You are laughing at our expense. Humiliating us before our peers. Bearing false witness. Painting an ugly portrait. Uttering defamatory remarks. .

    I can feel your guilt and anguish.

    okay that was dumb...

    Which begs the questions has our usually bright and observant member Maister fallen behind the curve? And whatever happened to the duck?
